    Considering a new tattoo.....

    I have been thinking of getting a new tattoo for a while now and it just hit me lastnight.....I am thinking now of getting the Second Amendment tattooed across my shoulders on my back....just below neck level, from one shoulder to the other.

    Of course, this would most likely permanently brand me as a radical and enemy of the state.....at least with the clown we have in office and the clowns who currently control congress.

    That sounds like a cool idea. I hear ya about being a marked man. But when that day comes....I think having that tattoo across your back will be the least of your worries. I say go for it. You should get it in the same type of old school script.

    I want to get a tattoo as well. I currently have no clue whatsoever as to what I want to get. No hurry to get one. Want something I wouldn't mind wearing forever.

    Tattoos are nice, but expensive. I'd rather save my money for a rainy day now. Remember....nobody is going to put you to death for a tattoo.....it's your faith in God they will be after.

    I do enjoy tattoos. I'm up to 6, and will probably get a few more this year. However, as a general rule I make myself wait at least 3 months between coming up with the idea, and actually getting the tattoo, that gives me plenty of chances to decide its a stupid idea (something i've done multiple times).

    They can be expensive too, that is why you get to be good friends with your artist.

    When I read the thread title this was the first thing I thought of, how funny. I was going to suggest a full back piece, with the 2A written on what looks like an old piece of paper with the top and bottom rolled a little, and nicks in the sides to show the age of the paper it was written on.

    You go for that and I'll Paypal you some money to help offset the cost.

    "Of course, this would most likely permanently brand me as a radical and enemy of the state"

    Actually I think it would permanently brand you as a patriot.

    Just my opinion on that.

    As suggested, I wait a while before settling on a tattoo. After all it is permanent.

    I agree with you. Id wait though. Not a good time to be getting one. I have a few spots on my arms that need to be completed. I was going to do it towards the end of last year but Im waiting.

    The money right now is better spent on other items.

    Hmm...think of all that money you'd be burning on that tattoo that could be spent on ammo

    I have 6 now but still take my time in running with an idea. What seems great now sometimes fades away after a while. What your are thinking is a very cool idea though and Paco's idea added to that would be awesome. At least the concept is timeless, it will always be relevant.

    I'm not the tattoo type, so I have one question to ask; Why?

    Why would you want to have that etched on your body? I understand the meaning etc., but what I dont get is why somebody would do that. The 2A is worth a lot more written on thepeice of paper that it is already on, why the need to put it on your back? Is it for yourself? A conversation piece? What is it for?

    Thats a pretty important question to ask, IMO, before getting a tattoo. A couple of mine are "motto tats" (IIRC you have one of those too Mike), Marine Corps things that I know down the road I'll still be ok with. The other "theme" I mostly work with as far as tattoos is great military forces from the past (FWIW, I do have a degree in Military History, so its something I've always enjoyed, and makes for unique tattoos). Both of those themes mean a lot to me and have taken up untold hours of my life.

    But why is always a good question to ask.

    I grew up in the South and was raised around farming and ranching, yes sir and yes 'mam, huntin' and fishin', love of country and fear of God Almighty. In high school one night a bunch of us good ole boys decided to go get some tats. I got a confederate flag with a bulldog in the middle. I have been branded a racist, which is the farthest from the truth, ever since. Most people can't understand it is about a way of life, a mind set, my hertiage that I am proud about. It really upsets me when I am at the beach or something and I get that look and realize they saw my tat and I am some sort of racist. Jeez!!!

    he supports the 2A rights, what other reason does he need? for some reason i dont think that his view will ever radically change, so i think its a safe and good idea. tattoos should only be for YOU and noone else, you will be the one that wears it forever, not anyone else

    hate to say it, but people are stupid. people see that symbol the same way they see a swastika. both ORIGINALLY had a good meaning, but due to their iconic use, the symbol will be forever tarnished. the southern flag originally was a symbol of your pride of being a southerner, but due to the abuse of racial hate groups people jump to the conclusion they hear most, that it symbolizes your hate of the north, blacks, or whatever other twisted meaning they come up with.

    now before you ask how i could compare the southern flag to a swastika, the symbol originates in sanskrit as a symbol of GOOD LUCK, now how many of you guys knew that? ill bet not that many, due to the nazi's use of the symbol. it has been forever labeled a symbol of hate, due to their actions.

    the point here is, because it means one thing to you, does not mean the rest of the world will view it the same way. so be careful what you get, because no matter what you pick out, you will find someone who will judge you solely on that piece of art. yes we all support the second ammendment, HERE, but obviously we still have to fight for said righs, so there are still A LOT of people who dont share our views, so be careful.
