    Good things? I suppose some would look at it as a permanent expression of their will/feelings. Just make sure that whatever they are going to tattoo you with means what they say “the Japanese symbol for peace” they are showing you – may mean “stick your head up a dead bear’s bum” in another Asian culture.Bad things? Infection (e.g. HIV, Hep B, staphlococcal skin infection)Allergy to the ink.Localized swelling and distortion of the pictureScarring (keloid)Lessened job prospectsChange of mind of content “Brian” may turn out to be the dud of the century, and you may end up with “Wayne” who really dislikes being reminded that you once loved a dude called Brian.As you age your skin becomes less elastic, and a droopy “Sex Godess” doesn’t hold the same appeal.The tattoo operator may be dyslexic and you may end up with “I luv doG” instead od your original religious intention!

    Because getting a tattoo is a poor decision, people look at you and think that you are a tattooed Moron, this may NOT be true, and I DON’T feel this way but, that’s what people think when they see them, unfortunately.

    Some disadvantages : getting some allergies or deseases afterwards, it was done very poorly, your parents may be against, depending on the place it can prevent from getting a job, it hurts when it is being done.

    What may seem cool when you’re twenty may often be a source of embarrassment and regret when you’re 50!

    a tatoo will always sag…gravity always wins; I’m really not much into body mutilation; What if you don’t like it later..i’ve had friends who had their skin shaved off because their wives hated their tatoos;I don’t need labels to define me.
