Done more thinking about what tattoo to get. Link to tattoo...What do you think? I like barbed wires and tribal bands. Instead of around my arm, its gonna be circled around above the ankle. https://encrypted-tbn0.google.com/im...36rQzXZ4s1jIya

Honestly, I hate barbed wire and tribal tattoos (unless you are part of that tribe).

In the end, it is your tattoo and it should be something YOU love - not what other people like.

100% agreed, especially on the tribal part.

If the OP really LOVED it, they would NOT be asking what others thought.... they would have got it by now!

I am not a fan of getting tattoos/designs that other people already have.

That being said, I like zigzag part, but definitely without the barbed wire. If I were you, I'd elaborate on that part and come up with a unique design for yourself. (Or have someone artistically inclined help)

I think those are not personal enough and overdone. I agree to get something custom instead of an overused flash piece.

i think tattoos are like facebook, fun, kind of sexy, spur of the moment, impulse decision, which is permanent.

I'm not really feeling it. There are too many people that have them. So it's especially not unique.

Reminds me of something the comedian George Carlin once said. "What's with these douches getting tattoos of barbed wire on thier arms? You wanna show me that you're tough, squeeze the real thing on nice at tight!"
