Remember when you were young and you thought someone was a bad ass because they had a tattoo? When I was little I pretty much assumed that people with tattoos are naturally members of biker gangs. Tattoos have become so commonplace now that it seems it's more unique if you don't have one. Would you get one? I saw a man on the beach who had his entire back tattooed with the band "Korn". Now, if he's a member of Korn, then yes, that makes sense and serves as an awesome reminder of the fame he has achieved. If he is in no way affiliated with the band Korn, he may be rethinking that decision at age 65, or, perhaps now.
If you got one, where would you put it? Would you want it somewhere you could see it or would you prefer to put it somewhere more hidden, like your back? What would you get to truly represent who you are? Would you get something subtle or go big? Would you design your own? I am a huge fan of meaningful quotes written in a beautiful script. More recently I've been tempted to get my daughter's name on my wrist or arm (somewhere I could look at it daily where it wouldn't lose its shape too quickly.) I think tattoos, especially full sleeves, definitely look sexy on the right body (ie-like Beckham above.) Do you have a tattoo? If not, do you want one?
