The long ones on the arm, are they fashioned on the holocaust, if it is it is sick to have them.  >:(   Do people think before they have them put on or is their brain scrambled egg.    :o

I have lots of tattoos I don't regret them and there's nothing I can do about them. I know this is being sexist but I hate to see tattoos on women. They probably feel the same about men. 
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

I knew a tattooist once in Saltly name of Pats he was the worst tattooist I ever new. The only time he was open was when the pub shut.

Not so long ago, about ten years, I had my first tattoo done at the age of 48. I had three brothers and used to be so annoyed when I was watching them having theirs done. We lived in South Africa at the time and it was an absolute no go for the members of the opposite sex. When I finally returned to the city of my birth many years later, I decided to indulge myself. I had it done at a tattoo shop in Erdington. Down a side street and I cannot for the life of me remember the guys name. Very well done. I have never regretted it even though my kids thought I was crazy. Anyone know the name of the shop?

Back in the 60s a lot of bikers had tattoos and ears pieced as I did I liked the statement it made . For most of us these fads drop of to a large extent. now I am joe average but like being a brummie , No regrets.

I think the ones women have put on their legs to camouflage vericous veins is a good idea.

He was on Nechells Green when I had a tat done by him, the infamous black panther which came out nothing like the picture on the wall. It looks like across with an alligator.
 I know others who suffered the same fate including another forum member. >:(

Wasn't it the cheapest tattoo in the shop that wasn't a flower or a bell or similar. I think he realised he wasn't very good at the design because he tried his best to talk you in to having something else.

He didn't with me. I think he should have removed the pic off the wall in that case. Mine was done in '61.
