When I was younger I stabbed my big toe with a pencil and it left a mark.

Does that count?

But the biggest deterrent for me not getting one is having kids and telling them NO they can't have one or get one while I'm sportin ink........that sound weird?



Sorry for ramble.



Cool tat and good on ya for wanting to learn to play the keys. I too have always wanted to sit down at a piano and jam.


I’m of a similar vintage and my wife has similar thoughts about me getting some ink. I’m less concerned about the kids and more concerned about the impact professionally. Does anyone have experience with this? In addition, it seems like it’s probably not cheap? This being the case I’d probably rather buy something for the bike

no tats here...nothing against them, but I'd just rather spend my money on travels, bicycles, home improvements, or helping my kids out where I can.

Boulder INK here in the republic, 'PeeWee' or Lance, if anybody thinking and is local.
I remember a high school friend of mine telling me the same thing, he's covered in them though none really look bad and he can hide them in clothing if he wants. Come to think of it, I have a few friends with tat's and none of them only have one.

None for me either. But I've worked in Corrections since 1991. So maybe my view of them is tainted a bit. If you get one, please leave the neck and face alone. Just not appealing. Faces end up looking like a school desk in detention.

I don't.

But looks like, a lot of people are interested in Chinese or Japanese.

The exotic and mystical Orient, I guess.

That picture reminds me of a very odd game my wife and her 4 sisters like to play called "name that body part"............

As long as you have a quality artist that has proven himself/herself with outstanding work I think they look great. However I have seen some really bad tats over the years that these folks are stuck with. The main reason I don't have any is this...the older you get the more your skin looks saggy. I'm afraid we are going to have an epidemic of gnarly looking tats in the near future.

That's why you need Turlington's lower back tattoo remover.

I work in IT with employees that have to deal with the public/ end users at times. Men/women don't get hired with face or hand ink. Something young people might consider. If I can remember back when I was 20 years old I probably wouldn't care either.

Now that I am old I can get some ink and it won't look bad when I am REALLY old.
