Same reason you don't get a persons name tattooed on your body. Unless it's your child.

It's easy to wash off though. Use a sponge, soap water. And scrub vigorously. .... Oh wait this is permanent. You're pretty much screwed.

Why your child's name? It's not like you're going to forget their name

No shit, #70 is right.

Some parents end up disowning their child, so I don't see how a child's name could be considered any different really.

And then your kid decides s/he doesn't like his/her name and changes it.

Has anyone actually seen the logo who's complaining about poor decisions? It's a bird and I think it's cool. I saw some examples of tattoos with it and it looks amazing by itself. People get generic bird tattoos all the time this one has meaning, but could pass off as just a pretty bird.

Woah.. This is why they say tattoo meaningful things only.

#9- yeah, but favorite stuff changes for everyone, as preferences change. They say, "would you want your favorite band (or whatever the case my be) from 5 years ago tattooed to your body now?"

tattoos don't always have to be meaningful. What are you the tattoo police? I have a friend who got a tattoo of a Pokémon, Squirtel, because she likes Pokémon and she thinks its cute. It's been 5 years and she loves it more and more now than when she first got it.

I personally see no point in tattoos and could never see myself get one, but come on people. Everyone makes their own choices. If someone wants to tattoo a band logo on his back, chest, head or genitals, that is their decision by their consideration and you have no right to judge them for it. OP, though, has some regretting to do. FYL, but kinda YDI in a way.

I agree that getting a tattoo of a favourite band really isn't all that bad a thing to do. You never know, maybe that band is meaninful to OP because if got her through some rough times, or maybe its main meaning is the fact that she loves the music. Either way if she likes the tattoo I think there's no problem in her getting it. It's just unfortunate that their logo changed.

99, same :) Ev has been my favourite band for most of my life and they've gotten me through a lot. I got the Open Door version of their symbol on my hip last year and I love it! :)

So let's say OP lost a loved one, and in their time of mourning a specific band helped them get through it... is that not meaningful? A band whose song was featured at OP's wedding lost its significance thereafter? There are many examples as to why your comments are unjustified, #2 & #13

#73. How can you say he deserves in it a way, when you literally just said that people can get whatever they want tattoed on themselves. I mean, it was his decision, right?

I'm planning to get an entire sleeve of logos of bands who made a difference in my life. The point of tattoos isn't really "hey will I love this forever?" But I consider it more of proof that you lived and loved. An old diary in a way of sorts. So it doesn't matter if you don't like the band in 5 years, it still meant something to you in the past and I think that's beautiful.

YDI OP. You knew that tattoo was going to be permanent when you were getting it.

Reply
  wcc7777777  |  5

Yeah, but OP didn't know they were going to change their logo. I still think tattoos of favorite stuff is stupid. You know what they say, "Think back to your favorite band 5 years ago, and if you would want that tattooed to your now"

I don't blame op for getting the tattoo. I have tattoos related to my favorite musicians, that I've had for years now and they still have just as much meaning to me today.

I wonder who your favorite band will be in 50 years. Because bands break up and music fades but tattoos are quite literally forever.

#32, Avenged Sevenfold is amazing but I still wouldn't get them tatooed on me. In fact I don't think I'll ever get a tatoo for the same reason you wouldn't put a bumper sticker on a Ferrari.

I have their logo tattoo'd. They were/are a very important part of my life. Just because there is a potential of a band breaking up doesn't mean their music and their existence would ever disappear. I am very aware my tattoo is permanent and had many years to think about it before I decided to have it tattoo'd. That's cool if you would never do it, but you can't tell someone else not to do it. It's not your body to make choices for. The OP can definitely get a cover up if need be or keep it as a reminder of a certain part in their life

"You wouldn't put a bumper sticker on a Ferrari" that's an awful tattoo analogy. Bumper stickers are a few dollars and they're removable. It would be more like "you wouldn't custom airbrush your Ferrari to your personal preference, oh wait, yes you would. Cause it's your god damn Ferrari, do whatever you want with it."

I love guns n roses and have for over 10 years, but I still wouldn't get their logo on me. My music taste changes too often. I have tattoos that have to do with my health problems and what I've gotten through. I don't trust myself to like something enough to have it on me for life if it's not something personal. Plus, removal makes it fade a lot but not totally disappear usually, and it scars. Cover ups would be smarter. That's personal opinion, of course. If a person wants to do the opposite of what I think, all the power to them. It's not my skin.

I consider a tattoo akin to graffiti on a temple. Not paintings, murals, or any part that should be there.

It's too late - OP already ruined their skin by getting inked

This may sound extreme but saying 'don't get a tattoo of your favourite band because they might split up blah blah blah' is like saying 'don't get a tattoo of a family member, they might die' (Yes I know that was extreme) It is a tattoo that reminds you of a certain time in your life you can look back on, it gives that nice nostalgia feeling. Besides, if it turns out it is no longer wanted there are removal methods or cover ups.

Some people are too quick to tattoo just anything they like on a whim. When contemplating getting a tattoo, remember that it will be there when you are a parent, a grandparent, etc.

You mean to tell me that when I got my tattoo, I didn't consider that it would be there when my son ages? That when he has kids I'll STILL have my tattoo? Wow, thanks for the helpful insight! I clearly should've considered my options better before getting my permanent tattoo!

That’s why my mom didn’t allow me to have a tattoo unless I think about it for a full year. I gave her pictures of the tattoos I wanted to have at age 14 and 16 and they looked ridiculous a year later. She still has these pictures.

I once went on a date with a guy and he showed me a tattoo of his own name on his arm... I guess in case he lost it? So there you go, OP. There's at least one person in the universe with a dumber tattoo than you.

There's nothing wrong with getting your name tattooed on yourself ... It's not that dumb!
