Sorry man, it is PS2.

I should have added an old keyboard or mouse symbol to it, though.

I still don't know why exactly you have such a big thorn in your butt over me, it doesn't bode well for you though.

/end drama hopefully
the tat isn't awesome, it's lame.
You'll regret it, maybe not now, maybe not in a month, maybe not in ten years. But some time - you will.

And as for the size of his biceps- as far as I can see Mr. CATS has been stretching out over his growing years and looks fine. Why are you guys always so judgemental?
Where I live its illegal to get a tattoo if your under 18 unless you file papers with the Health Dept. We had to get a notary sign the papers.

That may very well be true (if not wise), but when something like a tattoo has been all said and done, I find this kind of post reminiscent of an old man being a debby downer, raining on the parade of youthful exuberance.*

He's 18. It's more than a tattoo for him. It's a new experience, an exercise in his new found freedom mother's loose leash, and it's perhaps something of a possible entrance to new social circles (If not, at the very least, a conversation piece).

*Don't take this post too personal, Peter, yours was just the straw that broke the camel's back.

I've known many, many people with tattoos.

The only ones I've ever met that regretted them are the ones with either names of ex's in them, or ones they got when they were really drunk. (the latter are very few)

Where does all of this "you'll regret it" crap come from? I wouldn't get a tattoo like that either but I'm sure he wouldn't want what I've got either. It's all very individual and very personal. Just because YOU think it's dumb doesn't mean it is.
Being in debt and celebrating a lower deficit is like being on a diet and celebrating the fact you gained two pounds this week instead of five.

really? I know quite a few stories of regrets. Guess it's all on the people you know
my sister thinking she was being all wise and artistic and getting one and then about 3 months later being sick of seeing it and being asked about it 24/7. Then having it removed and going through that.

The only justifications for being emo (apparently) are:

1. Your mom just made you clean up your room
2. Someone at school just made fun of you
3. Your girlfriend/boyfriend just broke up with you
4. All of the above, and no one really understands the pain that you are suffering.

Losers.

I moved here a year ago. I lived in Michigan for 36 years and was a Lions, Tigers, Wings, and Spartans fan all that time. If I was a tattoo kind of guy I would have gotten a Tigers "D" even during their REALLY bad seasons. I guess I am just not the level of "fan" you are.

If by "level of fan" you mean "stupid enough to permanently ink yourself regardless of how bad your team does", then why don't YOU man up and get one? Come on, tough guy.

I imagine that if most people actually took the time to understand cricket (which isn't nearly as complex as people make it out to be), they'd find they really enjoyed it. I did anyway. Of course I learned about cricket by watching a 3+ hour Bollywood movie, so maybe I'm not the most typical American...

(It was one of the best movies I've ever seen though: Lagaan.)

Whoever did your tattoo shouldn't be doing them. The fill in doesn't look very good. There's even banding in the upper right box.
Sorry dude, but it looks like you should have researched your tattooers more.

He said he'd retouch it for free if need be, he said that the ink he was using had a tendency to *look* like it was full but after it healed it would leave spots.

Actually Apple released the new FW specs a few months back, thats why I got 16 and 32.

Aren't you a little worried about the staganation or probably the extinction of FW before it reaches 1600, not to mention 3200Mbps?

I'm not one for tattoos that don't mean anything - tramp stamps, ankle butterflies...I knew a girl who had Tweety Bird stamped on her butt. She got preggers, got fat, and now it looks horrendous.

I think a FW logo is pretty lame, but whatever floats your boat...I wouldn't have gotten it so large though.

I think we'd all like an update on those piercings, now that you mention them.

You did mention them, didn't you?
