    Hey guys! I was thinking about getting a tattoo. I think Harry Potter is like the greatest thing ever so I was going to get a tattoo of the deathly hallows. My question for you guys is do you guys like other men with tattoos? And where should I place it? (I was thinking above ass cheek or chest)

    No. You're too young. 18 is the age of bad decisions. Wait 5 years and revisit this topic. By then, you would have decided not to get a tattoo or maybe thought of a better tattoo design. Either way, I guarantee you'll be glad you waited. icon_cool.gif

    Tattoos were originally magical incantations and symbols you place strategically on your body. They were never meant for body art. What sort of magical incantation do you think the deathly hallows tattooed on you ass is?

    I wouldn't want my family to see my tattoo that's why I would put it there. Or my chest so it would be near my heart. Harry Potter (the books) are really important to me

    Wait. In 5 years you'll realize that it wasn't the best idea and you'll save yourself the cost of tattoo removal. There are very few things that you will like so much for your entire life that you'll want them indelibly marked on your body.

    Think that over since it is permanent. I would not get a tattoo personally since I don't want one. Unless I was a sailor, as Ethel Merman sang in No Business Like Show Business, "A sailor's not a sailor till a sailor's been tattoed". "In the Navy" is on my Ipod while I run so I am reminded of the Navy often.

    There very few guys who genuinely look good and real with tats.

    Most guys do it because they are desperately trying to fit in, be like the others.

    Before you choose to do this, consider what else is there that you can impress yourself and the people around you with. If it really boils down to one or two or more tats, you are doing something wrong.

    Choose to achieve something that matters. Something that will you great satisfaction, and will have the others admire you, too. Something worth doing. A tat? Practically every dude has one. So what's the big deal?

    Yea, in about 300 BC. Tattoos have been used as body art since modern man.

    For the OP, here is some advice from a tattoo collector with good and bad stories...

    1. Take your time
    2. FIND A GOOD ARTIST!!!
    3. FIND A GOOD ARTIST!!!
    4. You get what you pay for


    a good tattoo artist is worth traveling for. They usually have a waiting list (even just decent ones). They typically charge by the hour.. good artist charge $120-150/hr maybe more for the elite.
    Pick your artist based on their style. Every tattoo artist has their own style (color, blackwork, cartoonish, realistic, black&white etc.) Find one that fits what you are looking for. Example, don't go to a portrait guy for lettering or vice versa.

    I get compliments on my tatts all the time. But yea, keep it classy. Try to get it in a place/way it matches the contours of your body, if you choose to get one.

    If you feel like doing it; do it.
    Just be sure that you'll love it and that you won't get bored of it. A couple of weeks after it's done you won't even notice or think about it any longer. I did my tattoos at 18 and 20. I Don't regret them.

    You will only need to like the tat until you are >60yo (cause that's when everyone stop giving a shit about little things like a tat).

    go for it. many guys like tats i would say. just make sure the tattoo artist is comfortable with your design

    don't listen to these haters. please, god!, get a tattoo of the deathly hollows anywhere on your body. it think its such a good idea. i can't wait to see the pictures. right after that i'm sure you gonna grow up and become an astronaut or a philosopher with such a well-endowed idea-making brain of yours that you have there. if its all the same to you, i'd like to nominate you for a nobel prize. it's forward thinking people like you that will intimately lead our society into a more evolved way of being and acting in the world. i would definitely clone some of your cells now so that humanity will not lose the intelligence and wisdom that I'm sure you share with everyone around you.


    how come there is no emoticon for wanting to kill myself?

    do whatever the fuck you want and stop being so concerned about what others think about you or what they think is cool. each and every person on this planet is different. do what you like and what makes you happy. are you so insecure you can't even make a decision for yourself?
