One of the “problems” with being fairly heavily tattooed is that people are always asking you to look at theirs and give your opinion. I’m not much of an art critic and 90% of the tattoos I see are garbage anyway. Especially the ones people are always asking for opinions on. The simple reality is that if you got quality artwork done, you know it. There’s no need to ask for some stranger’s opinion.
The second largest “problem” is people who are thinking about getting a tattoo asking what you think they should get. How am I supposed to know what best represents you? My tattoos are all reminders of concepts and principles that help me with personal problem solving. When I get into a moral or ethical dilemma I can simply look at my tattoos to remind me what’s important.
So, when some guy on a bus the other day finished harassing his wife via cell phone, all the while stroking the leg of some crackhead half his age, then turned to me and asked what kind of ink he should get I recommended a series of cross tattoos on his forehead to remind him of the bible in his lap. Some people’s kids.
