    According to this chart, I should get a tattoo. Too bad I`ve already decided that I don`t want a tattoo, as I could not live with something permanent on my body, no matter how personal and unique and meaningful.

    I disagree with everything except for the "Is it appropriate to show to children" part. A good tattoo can have tits and still be a very nice, awesome tattoo to have. Also, showing skulls and demons to children, to me, belongs in the "no" category.

    I like the "Are you trying to fit in" - "Are you sure?" infinite loop there.

    I like the infinite loop at

    "Are you trying to fit in?"
    "No"
    "Are you sure?"
    "Yes"
    "Seriously though, you trying to fit in?"

    tats have become a fashion accessory...nothing more. all meaning has been lost not that they had a whole to to start with.

    "Do you want men to think you are easy?"

    Is this gender specific? :I

    Tats are a fashion accessory to people who want them as fashion accessories. Mine are very special to me and have very significant meaning to me. They aren`t on me for anyone but me. I actually like the flowchart. I disagree that skulls are innapropriate for children. I grew up with a dad who had skull tats, it didn`t harm me any. I grew up with ppl who had naked chicks on them too, didn`t bother me a bit. If naked chicks are "okay" for a kid than a skull isn`t worse.

    @ryan99, Judging by the fact the following question asks if you are a man, then if you like to catch it`s obviously asking both sexes.

    i dont understand why there is a "are they laughing?" or "are you trying to fit in?/are you sure?" bubbles. whatever you answer it it goes to "dont get a tattoo." anyway that or an endless loop until you change your answer, at which point it goes to "dont get a tattoo."

    @ultimakewl
    That`s the point: You ARE trying to fit in(some stupid club thing that requires you to basically brand yourself) in the first case and your friends are non-nice individuals (if they are urging you on) in the second. Its a bad idea period. Subtle humor there. I liked it.

    @ultimakewl: It`s flowchart humor. It doesn`t matter if your friends are laughing or not; if they are egging you on you shouldn`t get it.

    And, if you are not getting a unique tattoo, they are implying that you are trying to fit in. Which is probably true.

    So uhm, I`m not drunk, my friends are not egging me on, it does have a special meaning to me, it`s not a name, it`s not unique and I am NOT trying to fit it, unless getting the family crest tatooed means I am trying to fit in my family O_o

    so what if you get a member of your family who died`s name? and it`s on the wrist. My bro has that - our surname and mother`s maiden name, one on each wrist, in memory of our grandads, both of whom are dead.

    Got one problem that I got stuck on for over an hour (i have been diagnosed with OCD) the "are you trying to fit in" and "are you sure" i got stuck on a permanent loop by answering "no" to the first and "yes" to the second
    might wanna fix that

    I love a well-made flowchart. This one is clean, easy to follow, and has no obvious shortcomings apart from not allowing inappropriate tattoos given that it is not visible when clothed. Your children will probably not be examining you for tattoos if your clothes cover it, so go crazy.

    titmeisterx,

    I believe that can be explained by the fact that whoever made the flowchart feels that if your tattoo is not unique, you are trying to fit in.
    By asking if you are sure, they are trying to imply that you are fooling yourself.

    HarryBalzak: Some people design their own tattoos so sometimes it`s their own artwork. Plus it`s like paying an artist who draws on paper to draw you a picture to hang up or have on your computer. They make a living, you get a shiny drawing.
