I've said it before and ill say it again, Steve Boltz once said the most unique ideas are usually the shitist, if you going to get a tattoo get one that looks like a tattoo

I received a link (that's no doubt been doing the rounds) by email yesterday that included that exact same 'idea':

You'll need a key for the colours.

Red - gap year travels
Orange - holidays with Mum 'n Dad
Yellow - where my penpal's been
Green/Purple - places that I pretend I've been to so I can look like a cultured cunt when I post a picture of my tattoo on the 'net

But then you don't have country boundaries marked so you've lost the whole point of it.

It's a shit, faddy idea. Of course that is only my opinion and if you like it then you should get it, regardless of what anyone says. It's never a good idea to get something on the spur of the moment though, which is what this sounds like from your posts.

Imagine explaining that tattoo someone without sounding like a complete dickhead "it's all the places in the world I've been to, I get it coloured in when I go to a new country" Cool

I dont think its something I would actually consider having done,
just wondered what people thought of the idea, as i couldn't decide between it being ridiculous or quite interesting

@Davinho you can make most things sound like your a complete dickhead if you phrase them in that way 'I put pictures online for strangers to tell me if they like what im wearing or not'

The outline version but with dots to signify where you have been without the country borders would look better.

Or start injecting skag in to every place you wish you'd never been to.
