Most people get them because it makes them feel cool about themselves. Others get them because they see their friends or some celebrities with them. There are those who get them as a hobby or as a way of remembering something.
I got mine because I wanted something that represented my best friends close to me every day....Though I probably should've gotten it near my heart instead of on my stomach XP Other people get one because it does represent something that's important in their lives, or it makes them look cool/better.
some times they just do for being cool sometimes its just post something that they have a feeling about someone so they draw it on them or its just feelings they had and they dont know what to do and feel a little pain.....I think but i just did mines for fun and to stop bullying too
Because paintings get kinda heavy after carrying them for a while, artsy fartsy, remembrance of something or someone important, drunk, drugs, dare, lost bet, locker combination, gang affiliation, boredom, phone number, POW # ,
Wow. I don't think any one person can answer that one. Most commonly I would say it is to be cool or to look tough, other reasons could be as a tribute to a family member or close friend (for sentimental reasons) other do it as an artistic outlet, and some do it as membership in a group, club, or gang to set themselves apart from others and some do it simply out of drunken stupidity. But it is a personal choice and everybody has there own reason. One thing is for sure. Every tattoo has its own story.
I GOT 17 TATTOO'S AND FOR ME ITS A STORY BEHIND EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM. IT'S ONE THING THAT'S YOURS AND NO ONE CAN TAKE AWAY FROM YOU NOT EVEN THE GOVERNMENT. PLUS IT'S ART WORK. IT'S SOMETHING THAT YOU CARRY WITH YOU FOR LIFE AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT AFTER A WHILE YOU CAN COVER IT UP. PEOPLE WHO DON'T HAVE ONE CAN NOT JUDGE THE ONE'S WHO DOES. THERE'S A STORY BEHIND EVERY TATTOO.
every one of mine mean something that i have lost in my life ..or have gained.. just a personal way of remembering. i got my first tatt in 1978 and my last in 2005 .. nothing spectacular has happened to me since ... but if and when it does i will get more ink... cant speak for others.
Everyone has their own reason. sometimes it could be to remind themselves of something, sometimes they have strong meanings, sometimes the symbolize things/people/cherished memories. Sometimes they do it because its funny, or looks cool. Personally i would only want a tatoo that meant something to me, but everyone is different.
tattoos are a way of expressing one's personality...they could also get a tattoo in commemoration of someone whom they really cared about. there are a number of reasons but I think those are the two main ones:)
Im too young to get them but a gave one of a dragon(home made style) i could get one that way but im a smart cookie. Any who my dad has a portrait of me and my sister and a cross representing my gparents bc they past away.... He also has an eagle with the usa flag and a dragon fighting a hawk so idk hahaha
