I don't have any tattoos. I like girls with tattoos. I like tattoos in general. I jsut don't have any. some things i love i grow to hate and some thing i hate i grow to love. that's what throws me off tattoos, i don't want to hate something on my body. enough going on without shitty art on it.

that being said i've been toying with the eyedea of some business tatts for awhile now. i probably won't do it. i can't end up with a picture of mayor mcheese eating a crying cheeseburger on my chest or a shitty tricycle (sorry chuck).

Business tats??

???

Anyway, it you're going to get something get something that says something about you, or something that will never change about you.. Think long and hard about it

I agree that there's some dumb fucking tattoos out there and most of them are done impulsively

If you like tattoos, it doesn't mean you have to get one either.
That's how you end up being some dumb wop with a cherokee indian chief mural on his ankle and a barb wire rosary on his chest

ok i studied it out and the W in the dc has evolved into our Boston B or Atlanta's A. it goes beyond baseball much like the red sox B and is a claim to where you live.

btw the boston B is number one the closest i've come to getting tattoo'd. civic pride motherfucker.

my buddy who did that skull painting is pretty trill artist so im gonna have him work up some variations of the boston b and atlanta a and get em where faggots get those emo stars i thinks. im gonna work down from there.

also if a_d/honus wants to throw some shit out there ill for sure throw you loot if i use one of your designs. just start with a outline in black of the letter then do whatever. if you want to shade it. put barb wire around the letters and have them bleed. idk. whatever you want.

honestly your best bet imo might be to look up the good shops nearby, make an appt, and have them draw it up some ideas for you

theres probably portfolios posted on their websites

Some have described the placement as “business tattoos,” meaning one of the league’s rising stars isn’t jeopardizing his marketability by marking up his limbs. The truth is that’s precisely what Durant has done. He’s strategically stained his skin only in areas where companies and consumers could never spot his growing mural of body art.
Durant confirmed the deliberate placement of his designs following a practice in early May when the Thunder was in a Western Conference semifinals series with Memphis. A day earlier on Twitter, I had verified a reader’s query as to whether the images on Durant’s chest from a previous photo were real. It sparked shock among my “followers” and led to a series of subsequent questions.
Within minutes, the social networking conversation had made its way to Durant, who happened to be live streaming a recording session from his in-home music studio. Durant immediately checked his phone on the broadcast and told viewers he does indeed have tattoos before adding, “so what?”

a couple of my beantown frends have the redsox B

my tats are covered while wearing business casual but the reality is i live in socal and it doesn't rlly matter pple dont even bat a lash and i think that holds true all up and down the west coast (regarding visible tats).

for business casual you can always go inner bicep, shoulder, back, chest, riblets.. basically a lot of areas.

go for it.

Gr8 are u referring to the cock on my leg?

That's a jap rooster iirc

The artist got it from a book of ancient Japanese art

Prob the biggest asian cock you'll ever see

Most of my tats have something to do with my name

The first one i got signifies my middle name, which is a family name. I won't say what it is here bc you know, streets is watching

But the one on my forearm is also name related, its st Anthony holding the Christ child

The rooster is bc I was born in that year

I have a lion on my left leg, bc it's the CONQUERing lion of Judah

And you know the one on my chest which everyone thinks is stupid and gay is my grandfathers initials

I don't care about "business tats" bc I decided long ago that if was gonna be some kind of business asshole I would be a business asshole that owns my own business... Fuck an office job I would go absolutely insane doing that. Id hang myself in the John with my the first week

I'm not slamming anyone else who does that kind of job and wants business tags though.. That's what they want, that's fine with me. I understand that. Live and let live

Sorry if I started coming off like a paleface itt

Yeah they're on my calf

My whole upper left arm is pretty much untouched so i got some space to fill before I even think about doing anything on my thighs... My right arm is pretty much almost covered except for some space around the elbow (I'm a pussy)

iiWii... After a while you forget you have them until some bro is like " whoooa dewd yer tatted up"

But I have nothing like the ones Maff has.. That's a whole other echelon of commitment and vision

Tony is gr8 right? Should I go to an artist and schedule an appointment and have him draw something. Seems like a good idea so if I want to build on it it'll be the same style.

I've been polling my friends irl too. I'm a newb I need guidance.

Yeah man consult an artist... An artist that's reputable. Google image search something that will give him a general idea of what you want.. It most likely won't be exactly like the image you find when he's done with it. Hell contort the image and redesign it so that it fits better wherever it goes on your body. You gotta kind of trust him a little with what he wants to do with it bc h knows better than you how it will look when it's through...

That's why I say find someone reputable. You don't want an indifferent piece of shit just cuz hell do it for $100 cheaper find someone who respects his own craft and is not a meth snorting fuckface

32 Re: Business Tatts on Sat Nov 17, 2012 12:47 am

tony is right, ultimately these people are artists. you should find one whose work you like, don't go cheap, and then trust them to their craft. a good artist will give you good guidance and work with you on body placement, size, etc. im gettin some work done buy this guy in a couple weeks.

I'll give you 1,000 bucks to get a swastika tattooed on your chest. Whenever someone brings up Spike Lee you have to take off your shirt and tell them you love American History X.

my grandfather got inducted to the local bball hall of fame and i got his number and pop in a ball. went to a studio a few friends went to and let the artist draw it up. just gave him an idea of what i wanted. when i went back he had 3 or 4 drawings i picked my favorite and he did it. way better than anything i couldve drawn up. imo another reason to go to a tattoo artist to draw is bc theyre gonna draw it to flow better on whatever part of your body u pick. shit looks different on paper.
