I'm turning 18 tomorrow. I've been waiting for this for a very long time, I really just want to get a tattoo. I want it to be about atheism because it's one of the few things in my life that I know wont change. I'm really starting with nothing here, I have nothing particular in mind, so I'm open to all suggestions. I don't even know if I'm getting a quote, artwork, or otherwise. I'd also like to see others atheist tattoos if you have any.
That picture is of an amazing tattoo, but I think its a bit much for me, especially for my first tattoo.
I agree, I don't feel a need, but rather I feel a desire or a wanting. I don't know what started my love of tattoos, but since I was like 12 or 13 I just have always dreamed of the tattoos I would get when I turn of age, I can't even remember half of them, but I know they were dumb and I would definitely regret them if I had gotten them. I want to display the things that are important to me. I don't want any meaningless tattoos. There are a few things I know I want to get tattoos for, and it's some of the things that are instilled in me, things that I want to carry to the grave.
I'm quite a fan of this one:http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lv4yhlhxGq1qklxlqo1_500.jpg possibly going to get it or yes, the scarlet A.
I really like that, "praise reason". I feel like it would make people think when they see it. What are some of the reactions you've gotten with that?
I had the same dilemma when I decided to get a tattoo. Finally I decided on Darwin's Tree of Life with his signature underneath, which is science-y if you're into that. It was a good choice for a first tattoo, though, because it's really simple and it only took about 15-20 minutes to do.
My second tattoo is a quote from Thomas Jefferson. I've decided I prefer quotes as tattoos, they seem a bit more meaningful. But that's just me, obviously.
I attached a picture of each one.
I love your tattoos. I also really love quotes as tattoos too. But I'm thinking I'm going to get a quote with whatever tattoo I decide to (finally) get.
I love this one.
I love this! It's so creative, and I don't think everyone that sees it would automatically know what the tattoo is for. I want something I would be able to pull off as something else when I need to. The only time I would do that is around my boyfriends grandma. She's a doll, she is so sweet, but she is just a little too religious.
I have the IPU on my right calf. Love it
If I were to get a tattoo I'd get this. But I'm not really into the idea of tattoos for myself right now maybe someday. I do however love seeing what other people chose and the reasons behind it so when you do finally make a choice you gotta show us a picture.
I definitely will be sharing a picture when I finally get it done(:
Tattoos fade with time and can usually be removed by a simple laser procedure. They aren't necessarily permanent. Difficult to get rid of, but normally not permanent.
