I don’t have any. That’s shocks most people who know me, I guess I look like the type
I am fond of them, I just suffer from indecisiveness. If I had gotten a tatoo of everything I ever considered getting done, I’d be embarassed by them now, and would have to waste tens of thousands of dollars on laser removal.
I get the ‘You look like the type of guy with a tatoo’ thing too. Few weeks ago a guy and his girlfriend were on a street corner looking around and I could hear her say “Go ask that guy over there.” The bloke comes over and asks me if I know where a specific tatoo/ piercing parlour was. I did actually know where it was and I showed them but that’s not the point
I’d like one but I can’t make up my mind the concept of it going wrong is a little too much to handle.
Billy Connolly used to tell a story about getting a tattoo in New Zealand and asking the artist what his favourite tattoo was. The guy had been to a convention in LA a few years before and had heard about this from another tattoo artist. A Scottish guy, a soldier, just after the war had been in Singapore and went into a tattoo parlous and he wanted “Scotland Forever” across his back and a big massive thistle.
“Ah yes. Thistle. Thistle…” artist says.
“Do you know what a thistle is?”
“Oh yes!” and the guy starts playing an imaginary pipe.
“No, that’s a whistle. Thistle. Look have you got a pen and paper?”
So the guy gets a bit of paper, and he’s no Rembrandt but he draws an approximation of the thistle on the paper.
“Oh, THISTLE! Oh yes, no problem!” No trouble then, he knows what it is the guy wants, and he spends 5 hours tattooing it onto his back.
To this day, walking the earth, there’s a man with ‘Scotland Forever’ and a huge pineapple tattooed on his back.
