Think Before Inking

Tattoos are an extension of our creativity, desires, or tributes. It’s a personal choice to design our bodies with pictures or inspirational words. But sometimes, someone we don’t know and trust— tattoo artist… or tattoo botcher can distort our visions of the perfect tattoo. If you’re considering inking your body, here are a couple things you should keep in mind.

1)  Make sure your tattoo artist can spell. Spellin’ iz da most impotent thing when it cums to sayins. Have them write it down or make an outline of it on your body so all they have to do is trace it. This avoids any spelling mistakes… except if you don’t know how to spell the word. If that’s the case, bring a dictionary.

The botcher must be studying phonetics.

I wonder what her mother’s angle is regarding this tattoo.

A little too much information.

Your (belonging to or associated with person) You’re (you are) You (just you). This is why we should all know the difference.

Can someone help me out here? Is this supposed to be ‘absolutely ridiculous’?

I bet Bon Jovi knows how to spell it.

This person obviously didn’t remember how to spell before they forgot.

2)  Make sure the tattoo artist is actually an artist before they start drawing on you. This is very important if you plan to put a famous person on your body or a tribute to someone who died. You want people to be able to identify the person and hear how beautiful it is, not gasps or giggles. Your body is a temple; don’t let the tattoo debauchery desecrate it. Here are a few artists gone mad.

Maybe he got confused and thought the guy wanted a caricature of his gal?

If I were Sheleen, I’d be hunting this tattoo butcher down.

Perfect example of ‘you get what you pay for’.

Yeah, I totally see it. Good thing it’s on her back.


Was this a joke?

Which horror movie were these kids in?

Now, if you have thought about getting a tattoo, here are a few creative ideas for you to consider.

Quite ingenious to create humor from loss.


Your love becoming part of you.


Gorgeous


Awesome!


Here’s a way to clarify it.


The old fashioned way, except ‘coment’ is more like a Twitter revision.
