    No, but I will be, once all financial matters are cleared.

    No. I like seeing them on other people (only when in good taste and moderately), but I never wanted to mark myself ani:

    Pretty similar here, strangely enough :animal-sm

    I played around with a wings & black sun motif for a while. (like Ra)
    But likely that will never come to pass.

    I'm not tattooed and quite likely never will be, either. I just don't see the need to mark myself up especially with such a lasting manner.

    Hehheh, I recall that some teenager asked me and my friend, dressed in all black and such, if we had tattoos. Well, we both answered that no, we don't. The curious teenager then went off rambling how we aren't true "metalheads" if we don't have tattoos! Like pictured skin would be the only and one way of determining whether one is a "metalhead" (a serious one).

    I guess that for some people, form is preferred over substance. That may very well be the case with people who take tattoos with a shallow attitude, thinking that a patch of colored skin will somehow make them "unique" or "special" and thus the tattoo becomes an instrument of external validation: "Oh, look at me, I got a chinese fiddling on my arm!" Well that wasn't the best of examples as I've never understood why some western people feel a need to picture themselves with so foreign symbols, the spirit of foreign people.

    All in all, tattooing oneself certainly is a method of communication on a very basic level, but if I was to ever communicate in such a way I'd be hard pressed to find a suitable image which would express me through my eyes. Thus, I'll rely on my essence and manners (and clothing is a far easier way of expression and easier to change too).

    Maybe tattooing serves a purpose of "reminding"? I'm not talking about tattooing a string around your finger so that you remember to buy milk on the way home, but rather about preserving a thought - a part of you - on your skin permanently, which you can look at and reminisce about later. When you look at that old, worn tattoo of yours, you can see a bit of your past on your skin: a living reminder that time passes on. Is that part, that idea, still alive and well or has it long since diminished and withered away, leaving just colours without soul on your skin?

    I never really understood that. I see people all the time who have Asian characters tattooed on themselves. I always ask them if they speak Chinese (or whatever Asian language it may be) or if they themselves are that particular ethnicity. And they always reply with "no". Then they explain to me what the symbol means and I just look at them with a confused expression of disbelief on my face. You have nothing to do with Chinese culture whatsoever. Why have their language tattooed on yourself? Because it looks neat? eyes:

    If I ever get a tattoo, I'll get a Rune. I especially like this one.

    Should the subduing talisman, the Cross, break, then will come roaring forth the wild madness of the old champions, that insane Berserker rage, of which the northern poets sing. That talisman is brittle, and the day will come when it will pitifully break. The old stone gods will rise from the long-forgotten ruin and rub the dust of a thousand years from their eyes; and Thor, leaping to life with his giant hammer, will crush the Gothic cathedrals!

    ---Heinrich Heine

    There was this tv ad once (was it Sprite?) of a group of young people who went and got chinese characters tattooed thinking they were cool and individual but couldn't read what the tattoos said. As it turns out, the old chinese guy doing the works was copying the signs off a chinese restaurant's menu.. "peking duck" etc.

    I laughed my arse off first time I saw it, as here the pop-phenomenon of getting these tattoos was (and is still?) quite strong..

    Be careful with runes; they are not just letters, but also symbols with powers. Thurisar, the one you chose, is also a cursing rune and its oracle meaning points to conflicts and implications of a aggressive nature. Also untrustworthiness is sometimes connected with Thurisar.
