For a while now, I've been straddling the fence on whether or not to join the ranks of the tattooed, and today I finally walked into the tattoo parlor. I always thought I knew what I wanted (Batman tattoo - the bat tat), but as I started asking for appraisals, a custom Batman tattoo started to sound preeeetty expensive. This is mostly because the design I liked, in an attempt not to look lame and generic, is way too intricate and I'd have to sell some organs to get it.
I started talking to the artist about possible things, and because I don't want to look like a beer crushing bro (not that I might not be one a little bit secretly, but I don't want to be identified immediately as such), tribal bands and kanji letters are out. So zodiac symbols seemed kind of cool; I've got a friend who's got a wicked Leo tattoo, and everyone seems to like it. Problem is, I'm a pisces. Fish = Not so cool. But the artist whipped up a quick sketch of a badass hammerhead as a variation on my symbol (see picture), and I like it.
I'd still love all of my mythical beasts to throw out some ideas for what I should get permanently inked onto me (that includes you, Rhett and Link). I'm pretty open to ideas, AND, to sweeten the deal, if I like your idea, I'll get either your initials or your mythical beast name tattooed on my body! It'll be a bit smaller than the rest of the design, but still!!!
Help play a part in my inked future! I need a tattoo before I leave England to come back to the States!
PS - Feel free to sketch me something if you're feeling extra nice!
