    Pick something you like, find an awesome artist and discus what you want, wait, wait some more and let them come up with an awesome design. And don’t be afraid to travel.

    If you don’t know what to get don’t get one.
    It has to be personal to you. Get a good artist to draw it.
    Take it to a good tattoo guy who will change it a bit.
    Get the tattoo done. What’s the point of getting any old tat that means nothing?
    And for the love of god don’t get this tribal shit unless you’re Samoan.

    What about a tattoo of Beaker, from The Muppets?

    Well yeh, not to keen on the tribal stuff, what about Chinese letters?

    But seriously, I dont have a clue. My mate was on about getting a dotted pattern up her forarm, that sounded pretty cool, anyone gone for anything like that?

    What about something bike related?

    Something original like a chain ring scar on your calf or maybe 32:16 on your bicep?

    I have a tattoo of some custard on my forearm

    Very funny guys, and it’s made think a bit more about getting something I actually want, as some of those are shocking!

    A friend of mine has a few tattoos, but what he does is decide the design and exactly where he wants it then waits 6months, if anything changes in that time then the 6months starts again. If he still want’s it after 6months then he gets it permanently, if you can’t wait 6months then it’s not worth it!

    A tattoo doesn’t need a meaning, choose something that looks good, and don’t go getting an artist to draw anything, you are going to a tattoo ARTIST, if they’re any good of course, just get some reference material together….

    This is some of my dotwork

    I reckon this on your chest –

    Then something like this on your face but with KoM crowns rather than stars.

    I’d make sure the crowns are small so there was enough space for them all.

    32:16 on your bicep

    I had that done when SS was new. Got a 29er now and still on the same gear, keeping it real.

    How about something subtle, like some cock and balls on your cock and balls.

    Get in quick though, it sells out early.

    Still looking for inspiration?

    I quite like something like that, sort of captures how I feel when Im at my best on the road. Dancing up climbs like I have wings.

    Something easy to remove?

    Something easy to remove?

    To be fair, some kid gave me a henna tattoo at a festival earlier this year, and I forgot I had it. But I saw sad when I looked at my arm a few weeks later and it had gone

    Decide on the style you like – tribal, jap, Chinese, modern etc then research artists. Talk to some of the artists, decide on one.. Trust in the artist and go with the flow. It’s an experience that you should thoroughly enjoy (if tattoos are for you).

    Try to avoid picking one out of a book or getting one where the artist uses a transfer. You ideally want it sketched onto your skin first so you can see the design and work on it with the artist. Then once your happy, out comes the ink gun and the journey continues.

    I’ve just posted mine on tazzys thread. Ive got pics of this one in various stages – when it was being drawn on, then when it was being inked over the sessions. I’ve even got a bit of video from each stage.

    Remember it doesn’t matter what other people like, it’s what you like that counts – unless of course you’re going to tattoo hitlers left testicle to your chin in which case my advice would be don’t do it..

    Just avoid trendy ones. It was tribal pointy things (thanks to dusk till dawn) then the Celtic bands now the Polynesian style seems to be in. Whilst the likes of sonny bill Williams look good, dave from Milton Keynes can’t quite carry it off.
    Get some mags, look on some sites and find stuff you like.
    I’d like something blackwork by Amanda ruby. She’s awesome.

    think you’ll find Celtic ones and tribal pointy were around long before dusk til dawn and mainly in the alternative subcultures…then townies saw them in popular cinema and copied. now tribal tends to be the preserve of the serial steroid abusers

    But how would anyone know it was hitlers? It’d be fine.
