thats like saying every dog will attack you just because its a dog. a tattoo means you've decided to immortalize something on your skin because it means something to you. and although there are some people that have tattoos that are sketchy, the majority are just normal people. its become more common place, like getting an earring or dying your hair.

its because tattoo is trendy atm, i know of guys in their 40s rocking tribal arm band and random tribal pieces and they told me they got it to be gangster back in their youth, tribal armband is anything but gangster nowadays.

some people might think otherwise but to break it down simply tattoos are just a fashion statement. it might carry its meanings but in the end you decide to have a certain piece of ink on your body because you like the way it looks.

Some people might dress gangster as a fashion statement but it does not mean that they are actually one.

Having Japanese style tattoo doesn't mean they are a gang member, nor does having a tribal tattoo means they are from an actual tribe.

King George the fifth is the guy that brought the japanese style to the west, he has a huge dragon on his arm and he did it probably because he saw the style on a yakuza member in japan, like the style and wants it on himself. Does not make him a gangster.

i guess if you have to say a certain type of tattoo indicates criminality, I guess jailhouse tattoos would qualify

C'mon. Give the guy a break. This is a common misconception and at least he asked.

Then again, if he's trolling....

Same here pretty much, every neighbour I had growing up was a biker including some hells angels

Wish I could go back in time and check out my grandpa's old WW2 tattoos again, but he left us a long time ago

Who's going to be hitting up the convention this month? Its at the Red Robinson Theatre/Casino April 27-29. I'm hoping to go just to collect some shop shirts. I wanted to enter my latest piece but it wont be finished in time and I don't think my artist is attending this year.

Berz out.
You've mentioned that you spent a bit of time in jail before, I know from your posts in the workout thread that you have tattoos, but you never struck me as the stereotype everyone associates with tattoos. Solid grammar and spelling, intelligent, helpful, on that basis alone, not only do you come across as the opposite of the degenerate stereotype, but you're ahead of 98% the people on RS. Goes to show how much stereotypes are worth.

I'm torn between two tattoos at the moment, I'm going to get one or the other. The one I'm leaning towards is perfectly circular with straight lines running through it, I'm hesitant, because it needs to be an absolutely perfect thick circle. If it's not perfect or very near to it, it'll drive me insane, I'm a little obsessive over details....

Anyway, questions for the more experienced tattoo people:
- purely from the perspective of execution, would I be better off going with the design that isn't straight lines and circles?
- how close to perfect can I reasonably expect for something like I've described?

I'll post the specific image if need be.

Even if you don't take an artists ability to make a 'perfect' line or circle into the equation (because many can), designs that are "perfect" tend to not flow with the body as well. That is why script tattoos almost always look like shit, and some straight lines taken from non-tattoo designs don't look great either.

For thousands of years, tattoos have been designed specifically as tattoos. It's only fairly recently where people are getting non tattoo designs, and asking artists to tattoo them. Sometimes things look better on paper (or t-shirts) than they do as a tattoo.

That said, geometrical lines and symmetry can be artistic in itself, so if you find the right artist, you can get something great looking. It might help to post the image you have in mind.

To elaborate on that, that perfect circle will only be perfect when the body is in a very specific position. For example the heart on my chest goes from being about 3 inches across to 5 inches across depending on my position.

Yup and you also may want to take aging into consideration. Skin moves around with age, just like it does with position.

Not only will it be on the artist to get it straight and round but its on you to sit well while you get tattoo'd some times lines are not straight because of the sitter not the artist.
