    Yeah, but you gotta use something with SPF, 'cause sunlight works just like a laser... it does sth to the molecules in the pigment

    It looks horrendously trashy. It may look (debateably) ok in youth but it looks outright scummy in later years. Totally inappropriate for respectable family life.
    Depends on what you get, I guess. Or just on your opinions of respectable family life.

    Personally, I have no tattoos as I'm currently too young to get any, but I am desperate to get tattoos. I love them. I would hopefully one day get a whole sleeve done.

    There's a whole lot of tattoos I'd like, but I think my first one would be of a cat. I love cats and they've been a big part of my life growing up. I think I would like a minimalist cat - maybe just a silhouette or an outline. Maybe I would even have a tattoo of the two cats I grew up with. They're both black cats, but one had black fur underneath his chin, so I'd have them filled in with black but with one having some little white fur under his chin. Something like that. I'm quite fond of animals, and would one day like to have a cockatoo tattooed on me, too.

    But is does seem as if the whole tattoo thing has really leapt in popularity in the last 3 years or so, pretty much at the same time as this transgender nonsense.
    I'll have to disagree with you

    Just because you don't like tattoos (or transgenders, but I don't really see the connection here), doesn't mean that they're bad. A tattoo can mean something, if the person who it belongs to likes it, then who cares if everyone else hates it, it'll mean something positive to them. They aren't always there just to look 'cool' or whatever, they're there because the person likes it, maybe because it means something to them.

    You can be 'respectable' even if you have some ink permanently on your skin. I don't really see how you think it's inappropriate?

    My friend got a tattoo with a quote from a story her sister wrote her. The last story before she decided she couldn't live anymore. How in any way is that trashy? How would it be 'scummy'? That is honestly beautiful, and it's a lovely testament to her sister.

    Over 20 on both sides of my upper and lower arms, both sides. I'm not bothered what other people think about them. I knew they were for life when i had them!

    Exactly! If you like them, who cares what anyone else thinks!

    I don't have any yet (still only 17, I'll probably get some while at uni if I have spare funds :lol:) but I plan on getting something, it's just a matter of what and where

    Yeah, well you can use suncream on top of fake tan... (Not that i'd know, quickly looks away...)

    Yup, thanks for clarifying that you aren't 12 haha

    People on here are pretty young though so you have to be careful.... If you're someone who just says what they think/gives advice on anything, like me

    Super-imposed using Photoshop, actually—and a variation on this:



    Although, yes, I'd probably re-draw it as a simplified vector prior to commissioning any actual ink.

    Back when he went out with Rita Ora and that, Rob was pretty cool.

    Then it went south for him.

    And yes, this means i have watched 'keeping up with the kardashians'.
    Episodes are (were) interesting ngl so meh.
