No, Ellen, you can't have one. Site is just barely safe for work, at least that page is anyway.

Not that I have any problems with ink, but damn, that does seem to be a bit trendy and something you might end up being embarrassed about, no?
You mean there are actually people who think ahead before getting a tattoo?
oh yeah. Some people do it to memorialize something, others do it for a lifestyle thing, others do it because it's part of their culture (think Maori, iirc), etc. Some are tasteful, some are not. I've never had any issues with well-place, well-done ink.
But, just consider your future plans very well prior to getting inked. My brother decided to get a USN tat on his arm - then ended up joining the Marines. That must've been loads of fun for him during Boot.

Tat: notice that I'm not inked, nor is my wife...
But, that being said, I do have many friends who are and have done a good job of it (and I know people who haven't...), so yeah, I did jump in.
I thought ahead before mine, and I even have on that is being sketched out for me.
This will be my second tattoo.
