    Omg omg Omg!!!

    I was on Facebook and came across a post that announced a guest artist at a tattoo shop in the city I live in.
    I looked at his work and was sold when I saw this:

    I'm getting the Vegas skyline in that 'sketch' style. I love it!!!

    In two weeks I am getting a new tattoo :D:D
    I'm so excited!

    I've wanted a Vegas-themed tattoo for some time and never exactly knew what I wanted. I didn't want letters, or the sign, I didn't want cards or chips... but now I'm going to have the perfect Vegas tattoo!!

    I just wanted to share, I'm so happy!

    Okay, Lindy out.

    Good luck, would love to see the finished product.

    As for me, my body is a temple and only allow it to be desecrated from the inside by food and alcohol.

    Cool idea, LinLV! :thumbsup:

    I would like to get a VMB wristband tattoo (with glitter).
    Also, perhaps a "tramp-stamp" of the High Roller!

    I think a tramp stamp of the high roller would look very nice ;)

    my body is still a blank canvas. I have came close a few times to getting my first tattoo.
    getting a tattoo in Vegas would be the ultimate Vegas souvenir. and if it is a Vegas themed tattoo that would be even better.
    my 27 year old has tons of tattoos, he thinks that we should get identical Vegas tattoos.
    me thinks that is just his way of trying to con me into paying for his. maybe someday.

    Years ago I used to say to my wife, what are they going to do when they go to a job interview? Now, I guess it doesn't matter? I'll still never get one. And you kids get off my lawn! :poke:

    I'm a Dutch freelance text writer (I mention 'Dutch' so you won't think: girrrrrl, work on your English before becoming a text writer. You suck!) and I work from home, that helps ;)

    I don't mind tattoos as long they are not on the hands, face, or neck.

    Get a tattoo on each ass cheek. On the left a bird, on the right a bird's nest.

    I don't understand why some folks put tats on their back or shoulder where they can only be seen in a mirror. It's as if they want some ink, but don't want to see it themselves, yet want others to know it's there.

    That's exactly why I have my 2 tattoos on my shoulder and back. I want to see it when I don't have my shirt on (i.e. sitting by a pool) or wearing cutoff shirts (i.e. working out) but then I can still go to the office M-F and not have to cover them up.

    Guess I see too many tats that I (don't) care to see. Like a guy that got his tats about 100 lbs previously. Now his tats look kind of gross. Or the 80 year old with tats you can't even recognize. That usually scares me from getting a tat.

    And I agree with others, I can only image how people feel interviewing some of these people with tats. How they feel about these people representing their business with all these tats. I know for the younger type businesses it isn't much of a problem but for a business that has to deal with the public (especially the over 40 public) I would think that this would be a distraction.

    But that's JMHO and I've had gf's that had tats but I never had the urge to get a tat (mostly because I wouldn't know what kind of tat to get, I keep remembering the old tat with "mother" on it but would never consider getting that kind of tat).
