20 Really Incredible Tattoos of Totally Weird Things

Look, if you want to get a tattoo, that is absolutely your prerogative. I’m not going to sit here and explain to you that “a tattoo lasts forever” and that “it’s not going to look like that when you get older,” because you already know the first one and the second one is a dumb argument.
