Note to self…

I thought I’d share with you some of the latest “motivational slogan” tattoos that people have inked into their skin (for IAM members, Shawn has an opinion). Anyway, as you know, I have STAY CALM tattooed on my inner fingers (because I have anxiety problems). Andy has a similar tattoo, by Jameela at Jaded Angel (their new apprentice).

This person, tattooed at Moonlight Tattoo in Seaville, New Jersey is Never Looking Back:

“Dare to be different,” says this person from Belgium (tattoo via Body Adornments).

Others accept their enslavement,

By Jason at Golden Lotus in Oneonta, NY, this one says “Imagination is more important than knowledge” (an Albert Einstein quote). I disagree a little. If it was me, I would clarify that “Imagination is the root of knowledge.”

“MAKE DAMN SURE” says this person tattooed by Angel Tattooing and Piercing. I’m not sure what what they need to be damn sure of, but I can tell you one thing that would make this tattoo funnier — a spelling mistake!

Another quote, “Too weird to live, too rare to die” is from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Tattoo done in Tempe, AZ.

Für Immer (German for “Forever”) is quite nice script on Vogelsang (“birdsong” I think)… by Shane at Club Tattoo (Apache), also in Tempe, Arizona.

Finally, this lip tattoo, “Hit Me!”, is by Tomek at Miller in Poland. I’ll let you decide the context.
