Ok so im turning 18 in a while and i want to get a tattoo. I was planning on getting a half sleeve from my wrist up to about my elbow. The problem is that I have no idea as to what i want. I was thinking of getting something like a koi fish but then i realized i stole that idea from Matt Heafy of Trivium. I dont really care for meanings because it just seems like a lame excuse to get one. Id prefer an idea that involves a lot of color so if you guys have any ideas than let me know.


Thanks

I'm hearing a steady *thump thump* from the people above me and I need some porno grooves to play on my bass to give them some background music. Any ideas?

you'll feel like an idiot 40 years later when you have a tattoo you thought was cool when you were 18... at least get something a bit more subtle imo

I'm definitely going to consider getting that on my arm when I'm older. (Or just the 'O' itself, which is possibly even more common than having the whole name tattooed).

I agree with the other guys...if you have to ask what to get, you shouldn't get one at all. I have one and plan to get more, but I would never ask some else what to get. And it really should mean something, random tattoos lead to regrets

It isn't a scar dumbass, it's ink under your skin. Scarification is a scar. "Epic fail" is a phrase used by unoriginal, internet ****ing sheep losers, and no one cares that you don't like tattoos.

If you do get a tattoo, don't get one that's color. Not only are colored tats ugly as a camel's rear, but they also don't come out as well as black if you later realize your stupidity and go for laser removal. ... And, seriously, colored tattoos are just UGLY. But, hey, it's your arm.

Sexy as F!!!

haha, but really sleeves are overrated. once the color fades it blends in and you cant tell what it is anymore. get something really distinct thatll show.

im not asking what i should get. im asking for ideas so that i can come up with my own idea. Im not saying ill get whatever you tell me to because i wont but i would like ideas. If I was to get something with meaning, it would probably involve music in one way or another or some type of way to express a coming of age (which i think the tattoo would portray in itself).

I'm considering getting the design on my guitar strap around my left arm. It's this cool, kinda barbed wire looking design. It has meaning to me because I love that guitar. But I'm 16, I've got a few years to consider it.
My band, Escher
My progressive rock project, Mosaic

I think tattos are fine , but if you just want to get one because you're turning 18 you'll regret ir later.
Really if you don't have any meaningfull idea don't get one.
