Tattoo-wise the previous post makes Charles Manson look like an amateur ...

Being tattooed is a form of self expression, a form of following the crowd ( as with tramp stamps) a form of deviance ( outlandish ones like the above) a personal statement to oneself ( they can take pretty much everything away from you, but not your tattoos) and also its sexually stimulating and easy to get hooked on the feeling of being tattooed. ( no im not a masochist but the above is true for me!) [:I]
They also make you type in paragraphs and brakets too much ( like this)!  ;D

I am just in the process of designing and drawing up my back piece, a DNA double helix in transcription. Geek I know..  [8D]

Did he get the tattoo to match the decor (on the right) ?  :)

Some people have a chequered past, he has a chequered future.

... they can take pretty much everything away from you, but not your tattoos ... easy to get hooked on the feeling of being tattooed.

These statements support what I was saying about tattoos being a variant of self-harm by people who have been mistreated.

Actually I disagree, self harm and the act of getting a tattoo are entirely different. Self harm is a release for many people, they feel better when they have done it, and it is not always just the pain that is the facotr, its the act of doing it.
Tattooing couldnt bemore different, and my statement does not support that. if anything it supportsthe view that tattoos are value for money as they last as long as you do.

I don't know how anyone can get a tattoo that they know for sure they won't regret in 10 or 20 years. Unless you are already about 110 years old, it seems risky.
