    "

    1) Tattoos really only hurt badly if you have the pain tolerance of a toddler.
    2) 90% of people with tattoos like this don`t get it for anyone else but themselves, so your point is once again invalid.
    3) Tattoos don`t cost a fortune, and you only get them every so often. They`re probably as expensive or less expensive than a lot of hobbies.

    Before you knock a hobby you should probably educate yourself. So that, you know, you don`t look stupid.

    "1) Tattoos really only hurt badly if you have the pain tolerance of a toddler."

    Its still hours of pointless pain to change how you look. Dress it up all you like but its serious vanity.

    "2) 90% of people with tattoos like this don`t get it for anyone else but themselves, so your point is once again invalid."

    That must be why he took a picture and posted on the internet.

    "3) Tattoos don`t cost a fortune, and you only get them every so often. They`re probably as expensive or less expensive than a lot of hobbies."

    Are you honestly trying to say this tattoo wasn`t expensive?

    "Before you knock a hobby you should probably educate yourself. So that, you know, you don`t look stupid."

    I didn`t knock a hobby, I knocked people who take it too far. Before you get all angry and try to argue with an opinion you should probably make sure your points are relevant. So that, you know, you don`t look

    @paddy
    a lot of times tattoo artists/parlors will take pictures of their completed works to add to their art books and what not, and considering how this picture was taken I think it`s safe to assume that`s why this picture was taken. That`s all I have to say about that.

    @snorlax13- I imagine it did hurt a lot. I have a tat that comes just above my suprasternal notch (the little soft spot at the base of your neck just at the top of the sternum), and the minute or so that the area was being tattooed was the most painful out of all of the time I`ve spent under the needle.

    I`d get a print of it. I wouldn`t get it as a tattoo.

    Someday he`s going to change his mind on just how rad pirates are. When that day comes, I`ll just take down my print and throw it out. He, on the other hand, will be stuck with a saggy pirate ship taunting him from the mirror.

    There is nothing wrong with tattooing and it most certainly has not become a fad. If that were the case, then this is the oldest fad ever and it will certainly out live any of us. If a douche hipster tries to ruin the art for you, just rememmber, they`ll have to look back at that piece of poo on their finger in disgust after about 20 years.

    i doubt he knows anything about sailors. like these trendy fargots who get nautical star tattoos, then refer to them as "nor-cal" stars. or people who who classic tattoos ala sparrows holding up a banner, or any other sailor tattoos (looking at you kat von d) Good if he can define starboard, otherwise a waste of money and credibility.
