if you were forced to get a tattoo which of these two would you get

I'd never get any "forced" tattoo.

Tattoos should be something of extreme significance to the wearer and be something they'd proud to wear into old age. While being conscious of the likely ramifications from peoples preconceptions in business workplaces.

Take marker, write something silly or outrageous on your forehead. Come back in a week, tell us the outcome.

Neither. I hope you're not seriously thinking about getting a sentence/writing tattooed on your body. Tattoos are stupid enough, having something permanently written on you that NOBODY wants to read (or cares what it says or means) is even more dumb.

Sorry for being brutally honest.

In other words, don't get one.

I personally dislike tattoos.

And I never understood what is up with folks putting Chinese characters on their body. Image how silly it would be if Chinese people put words on their arm that say "Luck", "Trust", "Harmony" etc.

Oh well, to each his own. :)

I have to agree with the comments here about them. Like Miranda Lambert and that spear tattoo on her arm, man that looks awful.

ABout 10 years ago, there was a tattoo artist in Pittsburgh who grew tired of dealing with the brats from U Pittsburgh and Duquesne who comprised much of his clientele.

Chinese symbols were all the rave at the time. So when a kid would come in and want the chinese symbol for courage or some such admirable trait, he would, instead, tattoo the chinese symbol for w hore if the client was female and small penis if the client was male. He had himself a good long laugh before someone figured out what he was doing and then the lawsuits started. :)

Well that is pretty insane to do that to someone, if you don't want to deal with someone have a sign that says " We have a right to refuse Service".

OK, now I'm trying to decide between a "high performance delivered" or a "small penis" tattoo.

What did you expect from a bunch of grumpy old farts? If forced.. I'd choose number 2.. just because its shorter. That being said, imo, they are both terrible tatoo ideas. Too generic and simpleton. Almost fortune cookie-esque.

I've contemplated getting a tat, but I would design my own, and it would probably be science themed.

Not sure if real with the ending of the story:
For his own protection, Sakai has been moved to solitary confinement where he’ll serve the rest of his sentence.

“Prison isn’t so bad,” Sakai said. “It gives me time to sit and seriously contemplate my next diabolically evil plan!”

The General Tso's chicken tattoo was funny. Sense of humor that chap had. Wasted in prison.

I've seen some Americans/Europeans with Sanskrit tattoos and wondered if they knew what it meant. iirc, one of them was wrong. The vowel was wrong. A short "e" in place of a long one.

Top 3 tattoos I have seen:

(Third) Eye tattooed on forehead.

Red dotted line around neck - "CUT HERE"

Two pigs engaging in intercourse - "Mom & Dad"

Safe to say these chaps found their societal niche?
