Today's Fortune; Tattoo Ideas?
Today I went to P.F. Chang's for lunch. A fortune cookie came with the check and in it was written "Use your abilities at this time to stay focused on your goal. You will succeed." If only it knew...

A friend of mine thought I didn't like tattoos on guys, but really it doesn't bother me much unless they've just got them all over or something. I've wondered if I could get one myself but the real issue is what would I get. I have no idea what I would want to get permanently tattooed on myself.

What do you think would be a good tattoo for me?

Current Mood: curious curious

What will your 65-year-old self think is a good tattoo for you? My own problem with tattoos is that I don't want to burden my future self with the fashion decisions of my current self. I don't care if other people get tattoos, that's their decision though sometimes I think too many tattoos can detract from the beauty of the person's unadorned body. I've known some very sexy fellas who got big complicated tattoos and I feel like they looked great already, why risk messing that up with a big and permanent distraction? But I wouldn't reject somebody because of it, either for dating or for employment.

That's kind of what my own thought process is as well. More of "What will I still think would be relevant to me when I'm 65" or something along that line. Thing is, I have no clue where my life is going to be when I'm 65 so I can't even start to imagine, but beyond that I'm not sure what I feel strongly enough now to realistically think I'll want it in 10 or 15 years, much less 40.

Perhaps you could adapt something from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Just_another_Perl_hacker and throw in a || die();

Ha! The camel Ascii art was neat, though I think I'll pass. :-P I'm not a huge fan of Perl to begin with so that might be an anti-statement? *shrug*

Not Another Perl Hacker, ?

Heh, I'd rather not diss Perl when I know people aren't exactly loving of PHP. Plus, Perl is just one of many languages out there. If I got a tattoo of every one except PHP I'd be at it a while and wasting valuable skin real estate. :-P
