    Personally. I love tattoos. I've been watching my dad get tattooed for over 8 years, and my facination has only grown.
    I'm terrified of needles but I love tattoos that much I may just have to get one.
    My only advice is [And I've seen tons of girls come in the shop and ask for this] don't get someones name [Like a boyfriend/girlfriend], if you're like 20. Because you don't know how long you'll be with them. And a tattoo is permenant.
    It's always great to choose a design that you've drawn yourself because it's a unique tattoo then. It just will probably cost more.
    I just think tattoos are awesome In Love

    This is probably going to sound really lame, but I want to get a tattoo saying ''Chemically Romantic'' in beautiful cursive writing. I want the ''Chemically'' to be red, and the ''Romantic'' to be black. I'd like to get it on my upper left back, next to my shoulder.
    It'd really mean something to me.
    It doesn't sound lame. I'd love 'Our Lady of Sorrows' around my wrist sometime in the future. If it means something to you. That's what's important!

    I'm training to be a tattoo artist, but very slowly. It's hard to find the time with modelling, gigs and walking the dogs :|
    I want to bring tattoos into mainstream modelling though, so I'm definitely going to be inked, not heavily.

    I generally prefer tattoos when they work as one large piece, not just random pictures. But truthfully I love any form of tattoos, I wish they were more accepted.

    I want something tiny, simple and painful to the minimum, like a little treble clef on my arm or thigh or something... I wouldn't mind one on my hip, but it would just hurt like a bitch...
    I have a music note, on my left shoulder. That did hurt, it was bearable, but it still hurt.

    I really want to get some sort of horse related tattoo. Horses are my life, and I really want to do something horse related for a career. I kind of want a portrait of my first horse, Ace, but I'm not sure. I would have no idea where to put it. It would probably be very expensive, too.

    I also want on the inside of my arm a tattoo of Pierrot the Clown. It's a song by Placebo, and it means a lot to me. I don't know if I'll want it when I turn 18, but I do as of now. Or lyrics from 'Song To Say Goodbye' by Placebo.

    I want a heartagram on my lower back with spindly designs. Something simple but intricate and tasteful.

    I love tattoos personally, as long as they don't cover the whole body and they aren't bright or something lame.

    My dad has a huge backpiece, it covers the whole of his back... And my dad's a big dude.
    It looks great, takes ages. But looks great!

    I've had the same tattoo in mind ever sense I was thirteen.

    I want Living Miracle inked on the back of my neck.
    When I was a baby, my mother, my grandmother, and I were in a pretty bad car accident.
    I went through the windshield, broke my arm, and cracked my skull.
    My mom's lungs collapsed, and that accident permanently made my grandmother unstable.
    That car accident could have killed me easily, so this tattoo will mean something. =)

    ^ See that's what a tatto is about. Not something to just look at, because it's pretty. It's something that is memorable, that is special to you. It may not make sense to others, but you know why it's there.

    That's really neat. I'd love to see tattoos brought into modeling. And as for the second part, I know what you mean. the random pictures can be pulled off but I enjoy gazing at a large piece more.

    I'm fine with Tattoo, I think they're awesome, just not on peoples heads and some other places(if you know what I'm getting at) I'd love to have on wrap all around my ankle, one of my friends mom has a giant tattoo on her back of dolphins splashing out of the ocean. I think tattoos are a wonderful and beautiful form of art.

    I love tattoos, but I never considered getting one until recently. I don't know, the idea is just really appealing to me lately. I suppose I used to be really opposed to getting them myself, because I have a terrible fear of injections which I originally thought was a fear of needles. Five piercings later, apparently it isn't.

    If I ever got it done, it would definitely be something Bullet For My Valentine related. Im pretty sure it would be the flower and vines that goes under their old logo, because it's different - not your usual style of a rose, though it has thorns - and it's a lovely colour and design. I'd also consider getting the phrase 'forever and always' tattooed. The locations for them would probably be on my back or wrist...

    I say all that, but when it comes down to it, I will probably never get it done. XD

    My friend has two, her first one was a black rose on her hip (due to her name meaning dark rose), and she also has a cross on her ribs, just a small one about an inch and a half long. She's gotten the bug now and is planning her next one. Her first one did hurt, but she could stand it, the one on her ribs wa a lot worse, but she got through it fine and they both look really cool.

    I want to get about ten (which my mom says I'll regret and blah blah) I'll probably change one or two because one of them is Wall-e from the new Disney movie (it was her suggestion not mine and would be on my left shoulder) then I want the pics from the Twilight covers going across my lower back, HP and a snitch on my lower stomach on my right side, My Chemical Romance on my right ankle, Paramore on my left ankle, Panic! at on my right foot, the Disco on my left foot and something on my right shoulder. Because I love all those things and they've changed my life in some way, except for Wall-e he's just so cute! But tattoos are so cool! They're a way to express yourself and no one can really copy you.

    I have two tattoos. One on each shoulder.

    The first was a fairy. I was eighteen. It barely hurt. I don't regret it.

    The second was my former fiance's initials. I was nineteen. It hurt. I don't regret it, but I'm probably going to change it.

    My opinion on tattoos [personally] is that I want them to be simple and easy to cover. I think sleeve tattoos are awesome, but they're not for me.

    My next tattoo is going to be 'Reinvent [heart]' on the small of my back.

    Then I'm getting Ryan Ross's wrist tattoos on mine.

    After that, who knows?

    I used to know this girl. Think she was eight years older than me.
    Anyway she was eighteen and I was ten, I was taller than her.
    She dyed her hair all the time, had a monroe and three tattoos that I remember.
    A nautical star on her elbow, a lotus on her foot, and something on her other foot.
    She turned me on to the idea of tattoos. Because of her I have planned to get one,
    I just haven't found anything to give me a good reason besides them being awesome.
