Getting a tattoo should hurt. It’s a rite of passage.

The tattoo attracts and also repels precisely because it is different.

Tattoos are permanent and a lifelong commitment, the same as marriage.

Tattoos exude pain and pleasure all at the same time.

Tattoos … are the stories in your heart, written on your skin.

Wear your heart on your skin in this life.

Tattoos made my skin more “me.”

Tattoos fulfill a need to inscribe the self as an individual.

Tattooing is about personalizing the body, making it a true home and fit temple for the spirit that dwells inside it.

A tattoo is an affirmation: that this body is yours to have and to enjoy while you’re here. Nobody else can control what you do with it.

Tattoos have power and magic all their own. They decorate the body but they also enhance the soul.
Good tattoos aren’t cheap and cheap tattoos aren’t good.

I always look for a woman who has a tattoo. I see a woman with a tattoo, and I’m thinking, okay, here’s a gal who’s capable of making a decision she’ll regret in the future.

I got a tattoo about four years ago…. Tired of being thought safe and boring, I am now slightly shocking….

Men look at me differently. They think I might have hidden depths of naughtiness (I don’t). That I might be bold and fun-loving and devil-may-care, willing to take risks, and go to Glastonbury and not worry about having nowhere to charge my Philips toothbrush.

Your body is a temple, but how long can you live in the same house before you redecorate.

Tattoos are like stories — they’re symbolic of the important moments in your life.

My tattoo is that I don’t have a tattoo.

The world is divided into two kinds of people: those who have tattoos, and those who are afraid of people with tattoos.

Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD.

Getting ink felt right, like it would help her put her life in order, to move forwards. It was her body, despite the things that’d been done to it, and she wanted to claim it, to own it, to prove that to herself. She knew it wasn’t magic, but the idea of writing her own identity felt like the closest she could get to reclaiming her life. Sometimes there’s power in the act; sometimes there’s strength in words. She wanted to find an image that represented those things she was feeling, to etch it on her skin as tangible proof of her decision to change.

Pretty girls turn heads but girls like me break necks.

Boyfriends come and go, but best friends last forever.

Life is unsure; always eat your dessert first.

A day without sunshine is like, night.

I may not always be right, but I am never wrong.

Wit is the unexpected copulation of ideas.

Silence is golden, but duct tape is silver.

I can resist everything except temptation.

I say no to alcohol, it just doesn’t listen.

I don’t suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it!

I was born at a very early age.

I plead contemporary insanity.

I doubt, therefore I might be.

God’s funny child.

Born free, taxed to death.

The road to success is always under construction.

I’m not a complete idiot, some parts are missing.

I am too open-minded, my brain is falling out.

Born funny, showing it through a tattoo!

I started with nothing and have most of it left.

I love listening to lies when I know the truth.

I am a genius and there is nothing I can do about it.

Whether you think you can or can’t, you’re right.

Trying not to be funny, but the slip shows!

Hatred is blind, as well as love.

Anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me.

I believe in true friendship of opportunism.

Our friendship is endless, until I squeeze out your last buck.

I am your friend in need, a needy friend.

Stupid is as stupid does.
