Yeah, the original work I got on my arm was when I was 17, got loaded, and skipped school. It's all getting blended into my sleeve, but my recommendation to anybody is just to make sure that you want whatever you're getting on your body for the rest of your life, even when you're 70, regardless of what it means. I was unhappy with what I originally got, but waited 6 years to do anything about it, because I didn't want to make any rash decisions.

Definitely good advice but, for the record, I have yet to regret it. One geeky thing is, I'm a big fan of John Frusciante and was watching one of his solo videos and noticed he's got an octopus on his right upper arm as well. This was a couple years after I had mine done. Thought that was pretty cool, in a band geek kind of way. :-D

I've got a tat on my right bicep: it's a UPC symbol/bar code with my soc. sec. # as the numbers on the bottom.

I was a rage against the machine economist.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Slightly; it definitely crossed my mind before I did it. But I decided if I was going to be a wuss and change one number for safety's sake, then I shouldn't do it in the first place. You go all the way or you don't go at all.

I know exactly what you mean, and I feel that same way. I'm just too afraid that I would completely regret it even though, in general, I don't think it's really a big deal at all. I've never understood why a tatoo has to have some sort of profound meaning, sure it's nice to have, but it isn't a prerequisite for a successfull tatoo.

If I were to ever get one, I would probably go with a half sleeve as Snakes mentioned.
