Mainers Show Off Their Coolest, Most Awesome-est Tattoos
I have a bunch of my own tattoos.
Who doesn't at this point? When I was in my 20s, my grandfather allegedly hated tattoos. So much so, that my mom made me hide them from him. I'm pretty sure he caught a glimpse of them once, and then I think he was afraid my mom would find out. So for a few years, each of them thought they were protecting the other one. Hilarious.
I have a full sleeve, comprised of all Simpsons characters, I have a half-sleeve that's on the avante garde side, but I love it. Then a couple on my legs, one on the back of my neck... You get the idea. But I wanted to know what everyone else was getting for tattoos these days.
We've come a long way from sailor flash and tribal bands.
Not there's anything wrong with those. Actually, the old-school sailor designs have had a bit of a renaissance the last few years. Tribals? I think tribals are the Nu Metal of tattoos. Before you think I'm too judgy, I have a gigantic one on my leg that I'll likely cover up someday...
But I put it out there on the old Facebook, and folks couldn't wait to share their fine pieces of work. I wish I could've used all of them, but I maxed out what a photo gallery will allow, haha. But let's take a look at what other people got. Some are very personal, some seem almost random, but they're all wicked awesome. Let's check them out...
