    It's funny cause Walt Disney was a very big Nazi supporter so that tattoo kinda makes sense when you think about it

    I don't get why people are offended by xthe confederate flag. It wasn't about slavery... It was about the union on Amarica. The south wanted independence. Yes slavery was involved but is was only one small part out of a major big event.

    Uncle Carl's Rules For Tattoos
    1. NEVER get woman's name tattoo'd on you unless it's your momma or your child. Cuz, 'duh'.
    2. NEVER get a tattoo that says you're something you're not. More 'duh'. I know a guy that got his ass kicked for ink claiming he was a Marine when he was not. Now imagine what'll happen if a biker gang sees their shit on a non-member.
    3. If you want something clever in a foreign language scratched on you, get THREE *native* speakers of said language to confirm what you want says what you mean. If your Chinese ideogram that you think means 'thoughtful warrior' turns out to say 'Kung Pao Chicken On Special', you deserve all the ridicule you receive.
    4. No matter how much of a 'roid-fuelled gym rat you are, when you turn 60 your skin WILL sag. So that full back full color fire-breathing dragon riding a Harley down the Road to Armageddon is gonna look like a 6 year old took a lighter to a box of coloring pens. You have been warned.
    5. Any tattoo above your collar or below your wrist will one day cost you a job and/or a date.
    6. One for the ladies: Tramp stamps are REAL, ok? If you get the word 'Luscious' scratched across the top of your ass, every single loser in the bar will be on you like white on rice. BEFORE midnight, when it usually happens.
    7. There are several things in life you should NEVER, EVER skimp on... decide what you want, get what you need, pay for what you can afford, wait for good quality if you have to, and take care of why you buy. In my life, those things are: Cars, guns, tools, boots, and tats. YMMV, but I think that's a pretty good list.
    Remember, odds are you will not be the same rebel at 35 that you were at 22. Until you get an idea of who you really are, 'less is more' is a good philosophy. You can pull out piercings later in life if you decide it's no longer your thing. It's much harder to cover up or remove ink. I'm not saying that you can not or should not do what you want with your own body. Do your thing. But the choices you make will effect how others perceive you, for good or ill. But advice is free. You're gonna do what what you're gonna do.
    [note; In the spirit of full disclosure, I have three tats. One is the regiment I served with in the US Army. Another is the insignia of my reenactment unit (been a part of it for over 15 years) and the last is a custom tat my blood brother and I share.]

    Lol, honestly I don't get that silly position of "i'm not doing swastikas or blabla" like dude, be professional, tattoing a swastika on a random guy doesn't make you adopt the guy's beliefs. Imagine getting on a taxi and the driver tells you "sorry, i'm not going to take you anywhere because you have a christian cross and i'm against christianity" (switch the religion for whatever you want, you get my point).

    Anything that has a face on my dad's body, has its eyes ripped out, and replaced on his left arm all gory like, with nails, toothpicks, and broken glass. I used to think it was super badass, and I almost followed what he did and got the art for it, but I recently kinda realized that as much as I like eyes, I cant put them on my arm. Kinda makes me sound like a fanatic

    I reckon if you're gonna get a matching tattoo with someone it should look good on its own too. So like a bow and arrow; Guy gets bow, girl gets arrow. Or a group of friends get different dinosaurs on them and together they look cool but they also look cool on their own. That kinda thing. I'm actually going to get a matching tattoo with my mum for my 18th, super excited! For those curious; it's gonna be a semi-colon :)

    If you refuse to do penis tattoos speaking to the women then you should not be taking dicks in your pussy ass hole or mouth hole then if you ask alot of men tattoo artist if they would do pussy tattoos alot would say yes right away unless if they're married or they woman don't want them too etc...but yha alot of men would do pussy tattoos before a woman ask them too no problems if seeing or touching pussy or dicks is a problem for you then why do you fuck then i get if you ask a man to do a dick tattoo for you that's odd or a woman to do a pussy tattoo but most women would do a pussy tattoo and not a dick tattoo why's that odd world huh

  • Djentleman
    Djentleman 8 days ago

    If I was a tattoo artist I'd do racist tattoos and stupid shit, me refusing to do a swastika won't stop them from being racist, if anything they'll be treated worse for having it. And besides if they don't get it from me, they'll get it somewhere else. I still respect other people's decisions not to want to have a hand in it though.

    Swastika and Arian words like that from Sanskrit which is related to Indian history have been fucked by so bad by some part of European white people. Arian means noble in Sanskrit and white people start comparing it with their body features. We in India has big impact of swastika, until I talk to someone in Canada. Please European stop relating to yourself to Arian or swastika parts, Sanskrit is connected to our Indian roots. Nothing hate speech for us regarding it.
