Tattoo..to or not to??

I've never been a ornament person and hated women with lot of jewellery. I feel every ornament brings a sense of tied down effect on one. For how many times i have seen women in my family checking their necklaces and rings out. First to confirm if its there and secondly its at the right place. Thats one of the reason i am uncomfortable wearing a ring(the one ammamma gave me) as well . But these days i am attracted to tattoo's. Yes i consider even them as an ornament. It can be to make a statement or just a crazy fashion but its now my burning desire to get a tattoo. I have been thinking about the various designs like an Ashoka Chakra or the sanskrit scripture 'OM' or may be my sister's name on my shoulders or biceps. I really am yet to decide but ashoka chakra tops the list and for obvious reasons. And yes we are speaking about a permanent tattoo. One for the life..like picking a wife so must be extra careful aint it??


A friend of mine has a chineese symbol of 'Strength' tattoed on his leg calf muscles. Now an 'OM' on my broad biceps would look bombastic and also will give me an urge to workout daily. So its like a Win-Win situation. The safety of a tattoo was the next point to investigate, but these days everyone is using sterilized needles and there are tattoo parlours who are masters at this craft. And they are not that costly for a simple design one just needs to make a booking in advance and maybe they will play around with the design here and there. But yes i need to hit the right frequency with the artist, i dont want him to fiddle around with my personal choices too much.

Still the questions in mind are like these ;
Should i get it or not to??
If yes, which one is better an OM or Ashoka Chakra or you have any better ideas??
Dont give me dumb ideas like hanu gave(danger sign tattoo up your Ass..... lol)plzzzz
Lemme know!!!
Adois till then.................

Asoka Chakra...is a nice idea..but are you a total Patriot??

Om is divine...get it if you can show divinity in your whatever you do...
other options I can think of are a. Dove - world peace
b. pi Beta kappa(Symbols - Love of Learning)

i guess am a hard core when it comes to patriotism..and not by the decibels while watching cricket matches but by my hope and respect for our country and its rich traditions. ashoka chakra is a strong bet..next month is my birthday so chances of me gifting myself a tattoo seem to be pretty high. thanks for the suggestions deeps... beta kappa looks good image wise...

if u r so patriotic, what about a miniature India in tri-colour? :-)


the usual wriggling snake n all r too common. Go for something different. They say that once u've a permanent tattoo, u cant donate blood!!!!
