I've never seen one that stood the test of time well. They all seem to feather and turn an odd shade of blue as the person ages. Maybe they are making them better these days though.

It kind of tickles me to see some old codger with a tattoo peeking out from above his dress sock, which he's wearing with sandals, or from the short sleeve of his yellow Arrow dress shirt.

Got two tattoos years ago and now regret em but only because they are not at all good, think I'm going to have to get a good tattooist to do something with them. If anyone is thinking of getting one I would advise you to see some of the artists work in the flesh so to speak before going ahead.
Just realised my first post in a cooking forum is about tattoos - lol. Maybe I should get two pork chops with crossed whisks and an egg timer to keep me on track.

The techniques and inks used these days are a lot better than the old days of tattooing. They do not fade nearly as much, and if they do, you can get them touched up.

I've actually found an organization that owns a collection of old historic sketches of people with tattoos and they will design one for you specific to whatever ethnic group your ancestors came from.

My two younger kids both got tatoos in memory of their older brother when they each turned 18.My oldest son ( the one who passed at 18) never got a tatoo but he used to draw a copyright sign on his leg and the year he was born(1981)with a ball point pen.So when my other son was 18 he had a tatoo put between his shoulders of the copyright sign with his birth year.When my daughter turned 18 she drew a small dragon holding a rose and incoporated in the dragon's tail she inscribed RIP Jymm (my son's name).She took it to a tatoo artist we know and he was able to tatoo her lower back with it.I never had a problem with tatoos before unless they were done way overboard but, then again that's for the person getting tatooed to decide anad if I don't like it- I don't have to look!!;)Just sharing.Vicki

When I get down to 180 lbs, I'm getting a 1/4 sleeve on my left shoulder/arm. I would love to have a Pe'a, but wouldn't do it out of respect for the Samoan tradition.

There's a popular quote in the tattooed world: The only difference between people who have tattoos and people who don't is that tattooed people don't care if you don't have tattoos.
