    Is the arm band tattoo on the left or right an indicator of whether one is top or bottom?

    i think all tattoos mean something to the persons who get them - all of mine do

    or am i missing your point?

    I'd really like to get a sleeve type tattoo on my upper arm, no lower than a short sleeved shirt, but I worry that I'll have to have a lypoma removed and end up ruining it.

    I was standing in line behind an otherwise smokin' hot dude at the bank today. His tattoos seemed to mean "I have really poor judgement."

    That's what's preventing me from getting a tattoo. I need to have a very good story behind getting it, and know exactly what the meaning behind it is.

    All five of my tattoos mean something to me personally, I wouldn't get the standard barbed wire and or the goofy looking tribal things that make you look like a 'warrior' but that's just me icon_cool.gif

    I see this guy everyday. He lives near where I work. Everyday he is out there with tattoos all over his arms, up his neck and crawling onto his face. He has ear plugs so big you want to set them on fire and jump circus animals through them. And there he goes, looking miserable and pushing a baby carriage. That badass rebel is now spending his days changing diapers and singing Raffi.

    He is a walking advertisement for contraceptives.

    You can change that description in any number of ways, from suburban yuppi wanna be, to ghetto hood rat, to MIT D&D reject... it's not the tattoos and piercings, it's OTHER life decisions that are making him miserable.

    True i wouldnt get tattoos on my face, but i do have them on the back of my neck, the back of my head, and up and down both arms and legs... i work a very good job in local government, a great part time job with Lifetime Fitness, I still strip (though tattoos wouldnt be considered something that could hinder that), and i manage to dance and choreograph for a contemporary company. Tattoos aren't the mark of a bad person or a derelict no matter WHAT the tattoos are...

    It's like the saying "guns dont kill people, people kill people"... tattoos a bad person do not make.

    oh ya, it is totally the baby that is making his life miserable and not the tattoos. I just love watching this badass dude pushing a stroller and moping.

    I am about to get a tat over my shoulder, then down the side of delt and pec. I think tattoos and piercings are HOT, provided they are not visible in business dress. A tat says to me that guy can handle, possibly even enjoy, a little pain ;)

    BTW... back to the original question...

    Just as the hanky code was once symbolic for gay men... a tattoo on the left or right arm can still be an indicator of whether one is top or bottom.

    Given that, I'm going to have a tough time deciding which side to put my tat on icon_smile.gif

    I just got my first tattoo last month - at age 32! lol

    it took me 10 yrs from the time i thought about what i wanted untill when i finally got it. i ended up getting what i wanted but i like it even more than i thought i would. my best friend drew it for me from what i said i wanted it too look like.

    the only thing that sucks is that i can never really see it because its on my back and sometimes i forget that its there - until i go to the gym and some dude in the locker room says "that's fucking awesome man"

    *btw - never heard about the top/bttm thing on the arms. which arm is top and which arm is bottom? is this really true?*

    HA HA HA HA Really? I Never heard that about tattoos. Nipple piercing yes, but not tattoos.

    And though i think getting ink is painful, i dont think that it means the guy, or girl, can tolerate, or even enjoy, a little pain. I feel that getting ink is the ultimate expression of a person's decision to truly hold ownership of their flesh.

    I have two tribal tattoos, one to represent my parents and the other one because I liked the positioning of it on my leg.

    Tattoos are a form of art and quite frankly there is nothing wrong with them. It's a nice way for a person to express themself be it in public view or one place where only they can see it.

    As far as I know having a tattoo placed on a particular part of the body has no meaning unless the person themself what's to give it a meaning so I'm gonna have to raise the flag on the "arm tat location" suggesting whether or no a personis a top or bottom. if that's the case then alot of people with tats are misleading and apparently unaware of this tat rule. LOL.

    What's the gay code for guys with tats on their belly buttons?

    ok - so the tats on the arms signifying if you're a top or bttm is not true...

    ...is the nipple piercing true? which side means what? never heard of this...

    AND if a guy has a tattoo over his ass (which I've heard is called either a "Tramp Stamp" or "Mark of the Whore" - no offense to anyone - I assume he's a bottom... am I right or wrong?

    LOL. The "Tramp Stamp" is usually located right above the ass crack in the center and when seen on guys it has no meaning or any significance whatsoever in dictating whether they are tops are bottoms. Even when seen ongirls it still has no meaning.

    The nipple ring is also a farce. However, back in the day the ear piercing was more of a gay thing if it was in the right ear. It signified you might be gay or at least a rebel against the norm since most people got pierced in the right ear.

    tattoos on your arms depending on which arm you get it on is a code for top or bottom , not true at all. the Tramp Stamp on the lower back applies to females.

    Do we still have a hanky code? Jesus, this isn't the 1930's.

    Best way to find out if someone is a bottom? Press your dick against their hole and if it quivers they are going to enjoy it.

    I got my first and so far only tattoo for my 21st birthday, its my zodiac sign on my right hip. i have gotten a few compliments on it. I knew i wanted it for a long time before i got it. for me tattoos are hot but i personally feel its time to stop when you just get a tattoo for the hell of it without really knowing what you want or it having a significance to you. I think placement of the ink has an effect on how good it looks as well i like the hips and upper back, not a fan of the neck and face(face is just scary). As far as tattoos on the arm i dont think they have any general meaning other than what the person who has them says they mean.

    Dear MunchingZombie,

    So what does it mean if when I do that, they turn around quickly and sock me in the eye? Is that good or bad?

    Yours,

    wait...what sign is that?

    Considering the location that probably did not hurt that much, right?

    Lastly, how much did you pay for it?

    sweet dude!
    Thanks
