Hey Ladies, most men would agree with me that chicks rocking tattoos are SEXY! However, I do encourage you gals to use good judgement and common sense when getting tatted up. Here's some things to consider:
You must absolutely keep in mind that you will NOT be a care free 20 year old "buss it baby"/"hot girl"/"ride of die chick" for the rest of your life. And as hard as it might be to imagine, chances are some day you'll likely be a wife, mother (or both). Do you think your kids will be proud to say, "That's my mama!" when you roll up to the PTA Meetings with a tattoo of a tongue licking between two cherries on your arm??? How proud will your grand kids be when ya'll take pictures at the Family reunion and you're 76 years old with some old ass Tiger Paw tattoos sliding down your saggy ass breast which are now touching your stomach and now they look more like octopus arms than tiger paws! LMAO! BE SMART, Choose your content wisely.
2) WORD PLAY
I'd be willing to bet that about 85% of all tattoos have some type of words, symbols, phrase, quote, saying, or NAMES. Ladies, if you absolutely INSIST on getting a name tattooed on you, PLEASE let it be your kid's or parent's name! Meaning don't be around here falling in love, getting Walter Jr.'s name tatted on your body...Then 6 months later you cant stand his sorry ass! And if you INSIST on getting some type of symbol or lettering, PLEASE make sure it's somewhat relatable to your life or existence or at least be 100% sure you know WHAT it actually means! In many countries the slightest additional mark or missing slash could change the entire meaning of a word or phrase. So you go down to Tyrone's Tattoo Shop and get what you THOUGHT was the Chinese symbol for 'Wise' but instead your new Tattoo actually means 'Wide'! LOL! And what's with the obsession with Chinese tattoos anyways? Try getting something that's RELEVANT and SYMBOLIC to YOUR life, not just something trendy! Trust me, you'll regret it later.
3) LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!!
Ladies PLEASE be smart about the placement of your tattoos, especially suggestive ones! Most guys would probably agree that there is NO sexier location for a tat on a woman's body than her lower back (aka The TRAMP STAMP). LOL! But as bad a reputation that location has recently received, at least it's usually hidden and non visible in a normal setting. What you do in your personal life is your business, but just make sure it doesn't effect your professional life or the ability to obtain a professional life. This goes for guys too! Keep the tats OFF ya necks, faces, hands and forearms unless you're an ESTABLISHED entertainer or a prison guard! Even though it's almost 2011, people still judge others based on their exterior appearance, categorizing them before they ever open there mouths. And being that 85% of all communication is infact non-verbal, misplaced body art could send the WRONG message about you! For Example: My homeboy's little brother is a Harvard Grad but has tattoos all over his neck and arms. When he got pulled over for speeding in Beverly Hills about a year ago, the cop instantly pulled his gun because he claimed his tattoos "LOOKED" gang related.... Ok I totally made that entire story up, but I'm sure you can see how it could have easily been true! LOL!
Bottom line is, "BE SMART WHEN GETTING BODY ART!!!" Unless you're: already rich, a platinum rapper, rock n roll star, a Catholic Priest, professional bum, midget, circus freak, professional club bouncer, NBA or NFL starter (Bench riders don't need ink), a wrestler, or Bill Maher (because he's just that gangsta!)
