Topic #207: Would you ever get a tattoo? If you had one, what made you decide to get your first? If you don’t have one, why or why not would you ever consider getting one? According to one survey, 36% of American’s aged 18-29 have tattoos, the highest number in history.
I must admit that I have never personally figured out the fascination with body art. A small tasteful tattoo is cute and can be sexy but a bunch of unfinished tattoos depicting just plain randomness is like watching a graffiti ridden vacant lot with legs. The example picture with this posting is very eloquent. It is true art and compliments the wearer. People like Lil Wayne have taken this to the extreme with just random tattoos all over their body. I think tattooing ones face is the limit when it comes to body art.
Never the less I have toyed with the idea of getting a tattoo of the word “BROOKLYN” on my stomach in a semi-circle around my belly button. That is tasteful and can easily be hidden from view.
