    I have been wanting a Tat for a long time and have decided that i will get one. So my question is where is a good place on my body to pop my cherry on, should i do my side, chest,arm, wrist, back or shoulder. and i want a decent sized tat not a pussified tiny tat.

    Tattoos like any art form, look best when done by a masterful artist on canvas of equal equal beauty. Some tatts are awesome, others cool, some super sexy, but all should reflect the personality/lifestyle of the person and not be a drunk night tatt. IMHO!

    First you need the design.....second you need to copy the design, place it in multiple places around your house and work (if possible) and make sure you see it a lot during the day (especially right when you wake and up and right before you go to bed). If you can do this for a month without getting tired of the image then get the tattoo, otherwise you are not ready.

    I have mine on my left delt and ahve turne dit into a shoulder piece. before you get a tattoo Make sure of a few things:

    1) Be sure of what you want to get and why as it will be wiht you for the rest of your life. (Mine is an anatomically correct centaur, the Greek representatino of the animal nature in man: strength, power, lust/sexuality).

    2) Have a good idea of the design you want and you and the tattoo artist can flesh it out from there

    3) Make sure you reserach who is giving you your tattoo. Check out other work they have done and so forth. There are OK artists and there are guys who are true artists and can do detail work and shading that is amazing. When youa re out and see guys who ahve really well drawn tattoos ask them where they got theirs done; they will always be happy to tell you.

    4) I got my tattoo on my left delt since it is a good size pice of canvas space and also becasue I wanted something that wouldn't interfere with bodybuilding competition the way a pec or back tattoo might since I cal always do side chest/tricep from the other side.

    Tatt = Yay! Of course, I'm biased, though.

    Get them somewhere where you can easily cover them up - no visible tatts! They will only come back to hurt your career or professional life. After $3000.00 and two years of painful laser treatments, I can vouch for this one.

    Make sure it means something to you, not something that looks "cool" on the wall or on someone else. If it has personal meaning to you, then get it.

    Finally, if you're prone to changing your mind often, then you may not want tattoos. Remember, it will always be with you, so avoid fad tatts.

    I picked my tattoo and had it printed it and hung it in the bathroom, the kitchen, my room, and put it as the background of my phone. Kept it like that for about 5 months. When I realized I wasn't sick and tired of looking at it, I knew I should get it

    Tattoos are overrated and overused nowadays.

    They were made to give you some personality, to make your body unique, but now I feel more unique by not wearing tattoos.

    Tattoos have been around for the longest time - since the dawn of civilizaiton. They were actually markings to identify oneself with one's tribe or social group. Each tribe would distinguish itself from other tribes by the tattoos that they had, much like how gangs identity themselves nowadays. It was never about individual "personality" but about group conformity and to indicate one's status in the social hierarchy.

    I've got three myself. I agree with the comment on being able to keep them hidden for professional functions. The design and location are personal things you will have to wrestle with. I decided on my designs and locations a few months before I had them done just to be sure I would be happy with them. Good luck!

    Completely agree. I can't bring myself to modify my body with tattoos. Now that tattoos have become so commonplace, I like the fact that I'm without.

    I'm sure there are guys out there that I wish they hadn't gone down the tattoo path as well. But every so often, there comes along a man (or a woman) that correctly uses their skin as a canvas for real art, and that I admire.

    Just smattering yourself with random symbols or images does not a work of art make.

    I completely agree! If you are in a career that tats will help or are appealing (including but not exclusive to rock star or ink artist), then I would say go after it and get something that expresses yourself to show others. ;)

    Any other career, keep it under your clothes.

    It's not a dealbreaker, but I prefer no or non-visible tats.

    Yes, I know this, and it's totally true and genuine.

    But there's nothing as such nowadays in the occidental society. It's way more plastic, aesthetic, and individual.

    huhwhat saidIt's not a dealbreaker, but I prefer no or non-visible tats.


    Yeah not my thing either, but not a deal breaker for me either, just prefer something fairly minimal and non visible. Someone who goes crazy and does a sleeve or every square inch of their body is kind of a turn off.
