Have you any Tattoos?..

One of my replys in another poll post brought me to ask the question to members on the matter of tattoos. Have you got any? If so where and what are they?

Re: Have you any Tattoos?..

Haven't got any. I'm always concerned that I would go off the design after a couple of years, and then be stuck with something I didn't like

Re: Have you any Tattoos?..

Nope....not my thing.

Always thought about it, but then realise that its going to be there FOREVER and being an old man with wrinkled skin saying 'I love me Alfa' doesn't sit well with me.

But an ex from the US had a very sexy butterfly 'down there'......

Re: Have you any Tattoos?..

Well i always wanted one, but my parents stated if i got one i'd be out on me ass Also i realised the possibility of being fed up with the design after a few years. So when i was 17 i went and had a Thai Boxing Tazmanian Devil designed with the Thai writing for "Muay Thai" written underneath him and had it tattoed on my bum. I though as it was a fleshy part of the body it wouldn't hurt too much - boy was i wrong - it brought tears to my eyes and i couldn't sit down for a day or two! Now ten years later i am thoroughly bored with the thing but i hardly ever see it and only special friends and family get to see it also it has gotten rid of the urge to have any other tattos elsewhere on more visible parts of my body.

This poll should go of well with the Ford Owners forum, if they even have one.

Re: Have you any Tattoos?..

I donít have one for pretty much all the reasons stated before. In addition, all the ladies in my office have tattoos, yet none of the blokes do. Makes me wonder if self mutilation is a bit girly.

Re: Have you any Tattoos?..

I replied "yes" to the poll.

Can anyone guess what kind of a tattoo I have? (Hint: look at my nick name, and for those who have read the "about me" section on my website might have a good idea).

For those who have used their 3 guesses, here is a quick pic of my "Stamp" taken with a mobile phone camera (so not great quality)...

Did it when I was 18 and never regretted since. - Its there to stay as long as I am around.

12! That's quite a collection, you must have got the tattoo bug, i've heard once you had one the temptation grows to have more - ie David Beckham Fortunately knowing the wrath i'd incurr from my old girl if she found out stopped me adding to my collection

Re: Have you any Tattoos?..

I knew a woman with a red poppy on her backside. It had the enscription "To all those that have been to the front" on it

I have one tattoo on my upper arm. I thought about it for a few years and when I was still sure which tattoo i wanted I went to get it done. I don't regret it and I know I never will because it has significance to me.

Mrs Punts has our surname written in Arabic on the small of her back but she never intentionally has it on show. She must be ashamed! Well our surname is of Arabic origin so naturally it looks quite good and has relevance.

Here's a pic of mine....

I have two, one on each upper arm. The first one I got on my 18th birthday, kind of a 'yeah I'm 18, what can I do today? Ummmm..... oh yeah, get a tat done!'. So I got a skull with flames licking out of it. Well it was a good idea at the time.... I still like it but it's faded quite badly (it has been there for 15 years I suppose). Rather than get it touched up I'm trying to find a design to cover it up, I want something Egyptian to cover my whole shoulder & upper arm.

The other one is a doodle I did while bored at work, it's a bit like the cartoon guy from the 7up adverts but cooler.

If I'd never had a tattoo done, I'm sure I'd still like to have one, but I'd get a unique design done rather than picking one off the studio wall like I did for my first one.

I'd also like to know more about that design, Punts. I really like that.

The one I've been thinking about getting for a while now, in the film "The Fifth Element", where the girl has the mark of the four elements on the inside of her wrist, I'd like that, I think it's really good. The only reason I've not had it done already is I know it'd hurt like hell getting it done there!

Re: Have you any Tattoos?..

The right tatoo (esp. on a girl) can look great, but the permanence of them is a no-no for me. It'd be great if you could have ones that wore out after 5-10 years, I'd probably have one then. Like T-Shirts with statements on them, tatoos go out of date after a few years. Fortunately, you can always take a T-Shirt off.

Re: Have you any Tattoos?..

Have a look at a few of these sites - even if you dont appreciate tattoos some of them are art works in themselves.

http://www.into-you.co.uk/contents/xed/xed.htm

http://www.xedtattoo.com/web%20pages/arms/index.html

One of the guy at my work got his tattoo done at into you in Farringdon. His is a personally designed tribal/polynesian style that goes from the top of his shoulder to just past his forearm and goes all the way around his arm, it does look good.

Must admit the designs below do tempt me...

Re: Have you any Tattoos?..

Well I went to see Page and Plant (ex Led Zep) in 1995 and this symbol was used by the pairing.
Many moons ago the members of Led Zeppelin adopted runes/symbols for themselves as some of you will no doubt be aware.
Robert Plant's was a feather and Jimmy Page had the word ZOSO (not sure what this means as it was shrouded in mystery and Page has never revealed it himself. Rumours vary from alchemic symbols to arcane runes). The two had been intertwined with style.
I was a latecomer to the Led Zep party and sadly never saw them perform with Bonzo so it meant a lot to me at the time (just as it would today) to see the chemistry of those two super-musicians together on stage.
So I considered the idea from 1995 through to 2000 when I had the tattoo done. I love it, looks as good today as it did when it was new.
