Tattoo
 
I want to get a tattoo any ideas? I like fox racing and monster energy and bmx and of course my jeep. I was thinking about a Biohazard logo and under it says the down fall of us all

A heart with "joe" in the center?

Here is a picture of mine from about 5 years ago. I've always been the loan wolf, wolves are my favorite creatures and my dog is part timber wolf so it meant a lot to me. Make it count cause it's going to be there a long time.

I have quite a lot of tats and very much enjoy art and body art. My only advise would be make it original. Don't go and get something cliche or over done. Good luck

I would go with something that holds meaning to you in a non materialistic way. Pet, family member, symbolic meaning but I would steer clear of logo's and standardized flash. They can look good but don't hold the meaning that people associate with them and I've seen too many people upset with the choice afterwards. Remember laser removal surgery is costly and painfull. More painfull than the original tat.

Please dont get a corporate logo. I have seen far to many of those, and its not like you are getting paid for it.
When it comes to my tattoos they have all been original. Going in and picking some flash off the wall ensures that someone else has that tattoo and it probably wont be fun for the artist to do.

Most reputable tattoo artists will have entire portfolios of drawings that they want to have people get tattooed. Pick a shop that is well known and dont be afraid to pay good money. Lots of my freinds have gotten tattoos based on "whoa man I can get this half-sleeve for $350!" and 6 months later they realize that the tattoo looks like garbage. To get them done right its going to cost. (Dont forget, its only going to last until your skin rots off...and laser surgery is expensive.)

Look into family history. Were any of your relatives involved in a war? how about your ancestry? where did you come from, can that be incorporated into your tattoo? Past pets, loved ones etc. All good ideas. If you get a tattoo that has no meaning behind it though, make sure its quality work!

(Just my 0.02)

Good Luck!

My opinion is, if you don't have a passion about a tattoo design already, don't get one. And asking other people what you should get is dumb. Its going on your body. Choose your design wisely.

I was thinking, I fd up my shoulder biking and it will always be fd up so why not get a tat that says ride hard on that shoulder plus it can also be associated with snowboarding and wheeling

Thats better just don't get a monster energy tattoo man, I mean how much do you have to love energy drinks to say "man I want to be reminded of that my whole life"

Get whatever makes you happy. After you have had it for about 30 years you nor anyone else will be able to tell what it was. :D

Corporate logo tattoos are a big no-no IMO.

Get something original. Go in and talk to some artists, ask to see some work they've done... actual ART, not copying something.
