On the inside of my lower arm. Easy spot to cover up but easily flaunt able too :). Ideally I'd get it on my left arm but there's a tiny bit of scar tissue that might make it ugly.

This one came out fine:



I'm not too concerned, if the tattoo artist has any doubt that he'll be able to match it I'll just look efor another one.

Sounds cool, post it when you're done. I'm getting the black sheep from Minor Threat's Out of Step artwork. It's basically a crayon drawing of a sheep.

RockSteady; wow, amazing. Please post a pic.

I've had this one for about 2 years now:


This is the start of a chest piece, will eventually have a background that extends across my chest to both shoulders:

I'm going to the tattoo shop thursday to talk to the artist and show him what I want and talk about size and price. If everything goes well I'll be getting my ink on saturday.
Edit: the tattoo is going to be a memorial tattoo for my grandparents

I'm gonna get a dragon that extends from my left bicep and wraps around my tricep, chest and shoulder, then runs down most of the left side and bottom of my back. Tattoist friends for the win. Just paying for the ink.

It looks like the ink turned blue on the girl tattoo. That's not a good sign, happens when the needle goes too deep into the skin and means the tattoo artist is shit. Could be the photo tho.

While I personally would never get a Mario tattoo, that one actually looks fairly well done. I mean, it looks like the artwork and the color is nice. It's still a Mario tattoo... but if that's what you want, good on ya!

Ha ha, yeah, it was from 2 hours after I got it and had just taken the bandage off, so it was all covered in gore. I took a picture of it pre-cleaning and it ended up being the one I showed all my friends because it's so gross looking and funny.

I wanna get this eventually, but no idea when I'll actually sit down and get it done.
Don't you mean an inverted-color version of that? Which had me thinking, and this is a serious question... Can/do black people get tattoos?

Anyway, saw this today and really liked it:


Although I'm not a fan of tattoos myself.

Yea, the symbol will be black. And yes I've seen tons of black people with tattoos. However, never seen a colored tattoo on a black person.
