Don't get a product logo as a tatoo.....whatever happened to originality?

I'm not trying to sound like a downer, but you need to really think things through before you get a tatoo..I know you're young and they seem really awesome and all, but consider what having a sleeve tatoo will limit to you in the future (as far as careers).

P.S. this belongs in the Body Modification thread.......

word. i cant even wear shirt that have huge logos and brand names on it much less get a tattoo of one. dont get a logo. thats lame and you will regret it later. if you like the logo, get something like it, but personalize/add/change it. make it into a work of art, rather than an advertisment.

but when it comes to sleeves, i vote hell yeah. i would love to get one, but i just dont have the balls to do it. not to mention it makes it REAL hard to get a job anywhere when your arm is covered in tats...even tho it looks dope.

you realize how horrible for you sleeves are, right? i mean, like in the future?

that said, maybe the wendys logo, and the geiko gecko, and maybe even the wall mart logo. then you'd be a badass.

I have no opinion on this matter.

yeah, but he said only to the elbow. thats pretty easy to cover with a long sleeve shirt. if you're getting a job where you can wear a t-shirt, then i doubt it will be an issue anyway.

FAIL.

I see a kid at my school who walks around with one at the exact same spot , hes obviously under 16 so its def a crappy job. I cant help but think of how much of a tool he is by having it there.
Get something with meaning. I get mine in 2 months for my 18th. Both of my design have meaning behind them , you should think of something better.
we must become the change we want to see.

I agree, don't get a logo. Unless it's YOUR logo. Either way. I have many tattoos (getting more all the time). Don't let the whole "you'll never get a job!" thing deter you. You can always wear long sleeves. Some people think they're gross, some people think they're hot. My boss likes them and she's a milf

There is a sign in the shop that does my work that says it best:

The only difference between tattooed people and people without tattoos is that tattooed people don't care if you don't have a tattoo.

The actual sign is a little more cogent. Good luck, and think it through!
