    Alrighty. I guess this qualifies as gun-related... hopefully, anyway. haha. I was wondering if anyone has gotten a tatoo of the second ammendment? I'm considering getting one, but I haven't decided on a design. What I'm thinking about is getting it written out in something like an Old English script on a scroll. Has anyone seen a picture like this that I could use for a reference? If anyone has done this, how did you get it done? Thanks.

    Well, Wendy (RK|BA) could show you, but then she'd have to kill you...

    Before you get a tattoo, keep in mind that something like 1/3 of those who get them end up regretting it and spend hundreds, if not thousands, to have them removed.

    If you wrote something on yourself 10 years ago, would you like it now?

    if you write something on yourself now, will you like it in ten years?

    But heck, if I were to get a tattoo, RKBA would probably be it. Maybe across the knuckles of my shooting hand.

    Be sure to spell-check "amendment".

    No offense to those that have them.....but I could neer come up with anything to permanently put on my body that I know I would still like when I'm 80 (should I live that long)

    Except maybe Wile Coyote.:D

    It's been 8 years since my first tatoo and haven't regretted it yet. My second will be RKBA related, but I too am unsure of how it will look.

    Molon Labe seems a more stylish tattoo to me.

    You know, 10 years in the Army and I never had the want for a Tattoo.
    I join THR, and a few months ago I see this Tattoo and can't get it out of my head that I really want one like this.

    It is graffitti pure and simple. I have seen "beautiful" folks do terrible things on impulse that mar their bodies forever. Even laser removal still leaves scaring and it is expensive. Spend the money on something else.
    You will be glad you did.... Just a recommendation of course.:rolleyes:

    And remember before you get that tattoo that the risk of HCV increases dramatically. HCV will be the HIV of the next generation and we're already seeing an increase in cases; even among people who got their tattoos 20 and 30 years ago.

    Think twice.

    I was going to get one on my chest that said "FRONT TOWARD ENEMY" but my drill sergeant talked me out of it...

    Spartacus: LMAO! :D

    I have two tattoos, I have been toying with the idea of a RKBA-related piece. I imagine it will take me several years to make up my mind, after all, they do last forever...

    I don't know the truth of it, but I have been told that you are more likely to get Hepatitis from the dentist than from a tattoo. Of course, it doesn't hurt to use your brain and ask the artist about safety, then watch them while they set up to make sure they use fresh needles and ink. A little common sense goes a long way. :)

    When I got married I told my wife that I always wanted to get a tattoo. I wanted a rose (one) that would symbolize having one true love. We both went in and each got a single rose. Another thing about get that particular image was that a tattoo is permanent as marriage should be. I will be married to her as long as I have this tattoo. Both seem pretty expensive to get out of. I would like to get a tattoo dealing with RKBA but one thing about getting a tattoo is that it is the longest mind numbing pain imaginable. I like what I have but don't plan on anymore.

    I always thought that M60 linked 7.62x51 rounds around your bicep would be really cool. But I'm not a tattoo kind of guy. :)

    The best guy I ever knew had a tattoo right at his pant line that made it look like he had a revolver tucked in his pants. Makes a girl wonder how long the barrell is ---ya know.

    Kim, similar to this?

    I bet it would increase your insurance rates and decrease your life expectancy.

    I always pass on the wisdom I received from my Tattoo Artist:
    Never have anyone's name tattooed on your body but your own and your children's names. They are the only ones that don't change.
    Other than that, I can just say I got Tat # 1 19 years ago and never regretted it or the ones after that.

    Yes similar to that one. ;) His did not look quite as realistic but close. He lived in a very rural Missouri town. Everyone knew him. I think he had enough smarts to not walk around showing it in the "wrong places".

    A lot of people talk about it being painful.

    The only pain I had was afterward, when some jerk would punch me in the shoulder. And that was just a brief, although serious, flash.

    Actually, I stared at the needle the whole time, giggling. It tickled. Even on the under part of the bicep, which is supposed to hurt quite a bit from what I hear. I had to take a break a couple times because it made me laugh too much for the artist to continue to do his thing.

    Wow, thanks to everyone for all the replies. Keep 'em up because this is very interesting to me. Oh, and trust me, I'd use a spell-checker before getting anything written on me. Haha. :) I can do math, but I can't spell to save my life. Haha.

    Oh, and I would definately think twice and three times and four times before doing anything like it. I have a SERIOUS phobia of needles. I just have always thought that getting one would be neat, but like I said, hadn't really thought of what or where until I thought up the idea of the RKBA on a scroll reciently.
