    Post pictures, share yours, discuss the pros and cons.

    Here are some Laker related tattoos I found on the "interwebs."

    Who are some of your favorite artist?

    Do you have tattoos, and if so, how many?

    Favorites?

    Regrets?

    Most you've spent?

    Do you plan on getting more?

    If I were ever to get a tattoo, it would definitely be Laker related. Always thought it would be cool to have a tattoo that shows I bleed purple and gold. Like a tattoo of a cut with purple and gold "blood" dripping off. Haven't been able to flesh out the idea to make it more interesting and I can't even visualize it as something aesthetic and cool worth getting. But maybe someday.

    I plan on getting a Lakers tattoo soon, just the logo in black ink on my left outer arm/bicep though, nothing in color. I've done mock ups and purple and gold (really yellow and purple in tattoo ink) would look horrible on me.

    Your other questions, yes, I have 8 tattoos, all on my right arm, as I've been working on that one first before I move on to the other arm. I have my 3 favorite band's logos, The Strokes, Weezer (with the lyrics underneath "Everything Will Be Alright in the End" as something I need to hear everyday), and Alkaline Trio. I have my grandfather's name/nickname with him in an old racing car with an engine he'd built that I made a thread about a while back here.

    Also, I always wear a bracelet on my right wrist. For years it was a Nike basketball one I got from a friend, and for the last few years it was a custom leather one I had made at Knott's Berry Farm with letters for my family members and Chinese characters. That recently fell apart, so I decided to make a bracelet in tattoos all the way around my wrist. So I have my hometown's name in graffiti style lettering on the underside of my wrist (it's where I lived since I was a baby except for a month in a battered women and children's shelter in Pasadena and a few stays in friend's houses around California and Arizona for a few months until we could come back, and it's where I will live til the day I die), I have have a little PlayStation logo on one side of my wrist, and I have a string of Japanese kanji on top of my wrist (they are life, love, little sister, and peace). Lastly, I have a grey alien head with the words "The Truth..." In x-files style typewriter font under it, because I'm a conspiracy theorist and I'm also mocking the cult posing as a religion I grew up in, because they refer to themselves as "The Truth".

    My favorites are the tribute one for my grandfather and my Alkaline Trio logo one. I love the design the artist came up with for the one for my grandfather, and I love how the AT logo came out, the guy got exactly the red color I was looking for and he got the entire shape perfect. No regrets so far, I'm happy with all of them, they are for me after all and they all represent who I am in some way, and some strike up cool conversations. I've gotten great deals on all of my tattoos, because while the minimum shop fee for any tattoo is $100, if you get more than one at a time they have always given me a deal for doing so. It isn't $100 each, it's always a great price.

    Most I've spent in one session is $250, and the guy said normally he'd have charged $500-$600, but he was visiting from Canada and just wanted to do some work. He quoted me $350 for the 3 tattoos I wanted, but all I had was $250 that day so I said ok I'll just do 2 today instead and that's fine, but he was a really cool dude and said he'd just do the 3, maybe since one was pretty small. So I got a pretty large one with multiple colors with the tattoo for my grandfather, another good sized red heart one, and small PlayStation logo to finish the bracelet thing I had going on my wrist, all for $250.

    And yeah, I plan on getting more. I want an artists representation of the Milky Way Galaxy on the underside of right arm below my elbow to kind of finish that arm. I want a Lakers tattoo, I want a few more band logos, maybe some of my favorite comic/cartoon characters like the Joker and Roger from American dad, and some I'm sure I haven't thought up yet. I don't plan on covering my body in tattoos, I'd never get one on my face or neck, I have no desire to get one on my chest or back that will never really be seen, have no interest in leg tattoos I only ever really want to get them on my arms. Apologies for the life story there, but you asked ha ha.

    Got my first tattoo. Right forearm. Plan to get 2 sleeves and then stop. The shadow / neck at bottom of doberman HURT BAD!!! And that is where he started. I almost raised my hand and had him stop. After that it didn't really hurt.

    NOTE: Actual tattoo is a lot darker. Used a filter on this pic and haven't had a chance to take another pic and post here from phone.

    The white in this hurt a lot. Took the guy only 4 hours to complete this.

    The white highlights were like razors going in me. Slice slice slice. I was squeezing my phone like a baby.
