Should I get a U2 tattoo? If so, what should I get?

I'm deathly afraid of needles, but i'm thinking of sucking it up and going for it... nothing too big, nothing psychotic like my main man tattoo dan...




... but something...

suggestions?

Anti-tattoo people who know nothing about them.


Anyway, my darling; I like the joshua tree, especially like that guy has. It looks good. The only problem is all that black ink. That's going to hurt. Maybe do the heart in a suitcase thing. Several people have that and it looks good. That can be small and hidden more easily, if you want to keep your new tat a secret.

Tats don't feel at all like a needle shot, not at all. The needles don't go in like a shot. I like the feeling, myself. Be sober when you go, so you can remember it and make good decisions. But, keep this in mind: once you get one, you'll want more.

No offense to any guy who has it, but I think the heart in a suitcase is really feminine.....

and yes, like Martha said, once you get one you'll want more

That doesn't even look like the Joshua Tree. It looks like some random bonzai.

Honestly, if you're going to go for a tattoo really think about it.Make sure it's something that you will like forever, and seeing as though we can't tell the future there is no possible way of knowing that.

Also, when you get older that nasty stain will look nothing like the initial drawing you wanted.

I say lay off the tatoo. It's not really necessary and you're risking way too much of your own comfort later on.

unfair comment. everyone has their right to their opinion

no ones perfect. could turn up tomorrow that u2 gets fucked up and 5 years from now are total assholes. do you want a u2 tattoo then? i think one thing that should have been learned from following the band is that love can be blindness sometimes

But by then hopefully removal will be cheaper and less painful

this is what i have. i like it. U2 fans recognize it but i still get stopped by some asking me what it is. so i think it's the right mix of something obscure and recognizable.

and i don't know what martha's talking about i personally found the black ink to hurt less than coloured ink.

and yes, tattoos are very addictive. since i was like 12 or 13, i'd wanted one on my ankle. i was finally able to get one when i turned 18. i now have four and still want more. guys who have lots of tattoos are hot
