I can't manage to keep the same hairstyle for more than about 6 months ... so I can't imagine ever getting something as permanent as a tattoo.
I have a lot of friends with really neat body art ... it's fun to look at, as long as it's on someone else.

One cool thing I've tried out before is henna body art... You paint on the henna paste (or use a syringe to draw with it) and the design lasts about a week or two, depending on location. But your only color choice is reddish brown.
I've been seriously considering getting a tattoo of the WebmasterWorld logo that mivox made...just not sure where to put it...
tatts are a lot more acceptable these days which is a great thing I think, I love them.
I've got a small spiral on my left shin which I did myself when I was about 17, with a badge pin and a bottle of Parker ink - primary reason being boredom. Its a bit of a mess but every time I think about getting it covered with a professional one I change my mind just before I do it - its kind of a reminder of that time of my life.
My better half has an abstract art nouveau design on her lower spine which I designed for her, made the tattooist swear he wouldn't do it on anyone else. I must admit it makes her even more gorgeous in my eyes
I thought this tattoo was interesting....
"Do Not Resuscitate" :
The only logical place I could think of to put a tattoo on my body was the top of my foot (left) ((it's a flower)) (((it hurt!))). What's the point of having one on your bottom or some other concealed place when it's meant for show? I get a lot of compliments on it.

It's the same as having the nipples or genitals pierced, it's not intended for everyone to see. Just a certain few. My wife got the rose tattoo on her rear end, knowing that I'd be the only one to see it.
I got a tattoo on my arm, a moment of madness (or sanity) at the age of 16.
absolutely serves NO purpose these days, and resorts to me usually wearing long sleeve shirts.
hard enough to get people in my industry to treat you as a nice young chap, without looking like a criminal purely based on a Tattoo.
however I think they look real cute on females, something nice and discreet.
(btw, saw a guy the other week, and his whole face had been tattoed like a spiders web, He obviously knows something about the internet that we dont)
If someone gets a tattoo in a concealed place, it's obviously not meant for show. ;) (Unless they're an exhibitionist, but that's a non WebmasterWorld topic if I ever saw one...)
got a scorpion.
right where it should be -hidden-
if I wear a t shirt and shorts you can't see mine, when I got them I was aware of how people may think and I wasn't getting it for them anyway so I wanted to be sure they wouldn't hurt me in business situations.
(and no I don't wear a tshirt and shorts in business situations but you get my point) ;)
