What Your Tattoo Says About You

It’s one thing to get a tattoo and absolutely love it for the rest of your life. But more so than not, people will get one that they like at the spur of the moment, and then they realize that it just doesn’t match their personality as they grow older. And there’s nothing worse than having to permanently live with something you can’t stand. Getting a tattoo is, and should be, a major decision, one you don’t take lightly (unless you try these fake options).

Whether you want a tribal tattoo or a butterfly tattoo, what you get inked on your body will give others an impression of what kind of person you are. I know this can be totally different based on opinion, but I was curious to see what a tattoo artist had to say. So I interviewed Clay Clement, owner of Studio City Tattoo, to see what he thought about what certain tattoos said about a person.

We went over some of Hollywood’s most famous tattoos (ranging from Angelina Jolie’s to Nicole Richie’s), and he gave me an in-depth analysis of their tattoo designs. He also commented on the location of these tattoos, which is where it got really interesting. So before you bust into that tattoo parlor, make sure you check out these tattoo ideas, and what impression yours might give about you. You may just change your mind.

Again, I know this is all one artist’s opinion, and you may think otherwise. But even if you don’t agree with the analysis, check out the celebrity photos. Because let’s face it — everything looks great on stars, and even when it doesn’t, at least it’s not on you, right?
