I'm not a huge fan of tattoos, nor do I dislike them, but I always wondered why some people feel compelled to mark themselves "permanently" with something that is bound to display some sort of message of themselves to the world, for good or bad.
I sometimes asked myself what I would get if I ever did want to get one... I'm not a tough guy, so a lot of the stereotypical hardcore tattoos are out of the question for me. I'd probably pick one that had some sort of meaning, and described myself in a way. Today I came to somewhat of a conclusion: I'd get a heart to wear on my sleeve. To some that may be a bad thing to express, but sometimes you can't help but be who you are. Getting an actual tattoo would probably be the epitome of the phrase; not only do you show your true feelings to the world at times, you actually advertise that you do. It'd be a pretty funny joke as well... it's bound to be a conversation starter if someone ever did see it (sadly one that starts behind your back -_- ).
What kind of tattoo would you get if you decided to get one? If you do have a tattoo(s), what did you get, and why?
