    What one are you getting?
    Dark mark from the Harry Potter series on my thigh. It doesn't even look like a series-related tattoo, so it's a good one to have.

    Wow. I wonder why I never come up with such ideas.....

    I think some tatoos look really cool and 'badass' lol as Americans say.

    I could never go through with it myself though, I have commitment issues.

    Any decision that will effect me for like 10years + scares the hell out me. So tatoos, house buying, marridge etc just do not compute with me lol.


    OP are you sure your not just like me, and its just getting a bit confused and comming out as 'hating'?
    Confused?????? Far from it
    Hating????? I'd say no, but then again I wouldn't mind a second opinion from a sensible poster...

    I just see it as a waste. Wouldn't want support/encourage anyone who feel the need to stain their skin for whatever reason.

    And unlike most of the suckers here, I don't joyfully preach the "do whatever makes you happy" advice. It's not the card for each and every ****ing issue/problem/solution/choice.

    Thanks! I hope so too - I managed to get my nose pierced but obviously this is a totally different pain.

    Native American would be a correct term, red indian not so much. In fact why on earth do you have two tattoo'd on you? I love Tattoos but that seems an odd choice.

    Yeah I don't know why people always seem to want to justify their tattoos like "I got the dolphin for my Gran cos one time she mentioned she liked dolphins..."

    It's perfectly acceptable to get a dolphin tattoo just cos you thought it would look nice, doesn't have to be dedicated to someone, or signify a time in your life!

    I got my tattoo because Harry Potter is amazing, end of.
    If I get another tattoo it's gonna be a dot work mandala, just because they look awesome.
    I take (and agree with) your point... But it's never acceptable to have a dolphin tattoo. Never ever ever.

    I disagree, would actually be pretty simple... the shading and definitition of the tattoo that's currently in place makes it much harder to imagine anything else there.

    You could have quite easily had the face (I'm sure that's not the right phrase) of the shark as the nub/stump (is there a more PC phrase?) with the body and dorsal fin flowing along the scar lines you can see. You could actually have the scar lines as the transition between the white and gray flesh of the shark.

    You could surround this with waves/water/shoal of fish and actually spread it out into a chest piece/backpiece.

    Given about 3 minutes I can come up with how that would work, if you actually had an artist sketch it out, it would be fine.

    Dolphins still suck.

    I'd never get a green piece of goo on my skin for a "memory" or any crap EXCUSE like that. If it means that much too me i have the mental capacity to contain it in my brain for the rest of my life.

    So why the **** would one stain their skin?

    Do ppl admit they forget "personal" events that are impt to them for the sake of a tattoo??
    :congrats:
    You need a medal for saying the truth.

    I have tattoos and I love them. None that I couldn't cover up if I needed too but I have never had any negative reponses from having them.
    I do not judge people on tattoos or piercings as I do not see that it changes the person or nature of the person.
    I'm a pretty "each to their own" kind of person though and respect those who don't like tattoos although I would never "bash" them for it and would expect the same in return
    Oh, but I do and anyone with experience with dealing with people with multiple tattoos will judge, and rightly so.
    Seeing that it falls into the category of self harm and body mutilation (it does - check the research), it says volumes about the person eg. inability to deal with emotional trauma, hates their body/choices they have made in their life etc.

    This is why so many people never give a reason as to why they got a tattoo or as OP mentions, they use the excuse of "it's to help me remember some massive event". Well if it was so large, how could you forget it? :curious: Never does the person actually mention the artistic quality or design of their...body art :facepalm2:
