Permanent Ink7:07 PM
Every once in awhile I get the urge to get a tattoo, but I have never been able to decide what I want. For others, they have been plotting the specific place where they want to permanently embellish their skin since playgroup. The thing is, I fear my body will react strange, it happened with piercings so I am nervous about ink. However, some people I know have some pretty awesome tattoo's and I have pretty much made them show me their skin.
My best friend Jamie has the Serenity symbol tattooed on her back. Serenity is a Joss Whedon film that was created to sort of tied up the lose ends to the canceled show Firefly. Both Firefly and Serenity are epically amazing, seriously, it's like Star Wars meets Bonanza, but even better! Needless to say, Jamie has had a few comments on this tattoo and I fully support fan tattoos. I mean, if you really love something, then why not?
Mariah shows off her tattoo that she had done in memory of a loved one. I love that the tattoo is simple, yet obviously sends a strong message to whomever casts a glance at it.
Mark decided to go all out with his tattoos. The first is the anarchy symbol if you didn't already know, and I personally find it less offensive than that damn creepy rabbit from Donnie Darko. Frank is a creepy guy, take a look for yourself:
And he willingly put this on his arm, I think just to taunt me and to scare the piss out of children and adults alike everywhere! Moving on.
Dan has the batman symbol tattooed on his arm and although it looks a tiny bit faded, there is no denying what that symbol is for.
Now what would I get personally? If I were going for the fan-based tattoo, I would go for:
Or if I were going to get a comic related tattoo:
But I would most likely go for something like this in the end:
How about you?
