Really? gang affiliated and smart though?? youre kidding right? im not 1 to open my mouth on here and talk negatively but ANY gang related tattoo is silly especially if it would jeapordize a career


clearly not in cali, which is the point. no one actually cares unless you're trying to be in a law firm or something.

dude has gang tattoos, still works at a hospital. tattoos didn't jeopardize anything.

Yeah, believe it or not there are some smart gangsters out there. The homie was the bookworm type in skool, and loved doing homework. Sometimes, depending on where you live in some southern california cities like long beach, compton, watts, etc. the "gangster" lifestyle is all you have, whether you like it or not.

QFT; the new thing in the OC now if you're "gangster" is to be book smart.

shits definitely different in cali from ny then....anyone with a visible tattoo, let alone a gang-related tattoo is putting his job-chances in jeopardy on wallstreet

Its the same everywhere.. Any office corporate job u cant have visible tattoos.. Meaning hands, neck, face.. Even if u were in a gang before and had gang related tattoos covered u still could get the job.. Unless u have been convicted of felonies but not all "gangsters" have records.. Like OJ said some people in gangs are actually smart but they dont really have the great of an option when they are young so they go that way... Reason the dude he knows, got a job as an RN is because he prolly told them his story, was smart got a good education and wanted to go int he medical field.. And they most likely hired em because if some needs help in a hospital they arent going look and be "oh no he has tattoos all over his body, i want someone else" reason the people hiring prolly could careless as long as he is doing his job right..

Now in the corp. world its different cause u are dealing with all types of people and to them u have to look clean cut.. Its al about the first impression here.. Even though there is people who are high up who are heavily tattooed, they just cover it up very well.. So they dont want u to have tattoos showing and especially no gang related tattoos because they would be afraid of how someone will judge u just by your look alone and really could effect the company for whatever is they are dealing with.. And this is everywhere in the US..

Dumbest shit to do, someone I know did it and they get made fun of still.

why are you going to put a corporate logo on your skin? get something with meaning or nothing

If you gotta ask, it is probably going to be a mistake.

Why would you want the swoosh? Okay, you like Nikes. I like pizza doesn't mean I'm..nevermind, I'm actually planning to get a pizza tattoo. I like my PS3, doesn't mean I should get a controller inked on me.

Theres a huge difference between booksmarts/knowledge and actually being smart. I.E making smart decisions, or having good judgement...just saying.

tattoo show such dedication to ones art! how intrigueing to see one brandish their lifestlye on ones own skin!
May 07, 2010 @ 00:05:21

wow so fucking dope! it's almost like a picture.

color tattoo > black & white... unless it's a writing or quote. that's just my personal preference

See, I'm the same way. I wore Janoski's to my HS prom last year and it's killing me to not be able to wear 'em this year. Gotta actually wear dress shoes this year, but as soon as I'm out..throwin' some Nikes on. I think if I found the right swoosh to use, it'd be nice.

I think I'm going to get a balance scale on my inner bicep. Something like this:
I am in constant pursuit of balance in my life--all the cliches like work/party, equality, and all that crap. Definitely a personal motif, if you will. (Plus I'm a Libra, so there's obviously a connection there as well.) Just thought I'd phish for feedback here. Any thoughts?

I dig it! Good meaning as well. Reminds me of something similar to this:



It's a Lawrence Arms piece. I was thinking of adding something to my stomach, but I'm not exactly ....The Situation, at the moment.

for some reason that tat just looks gross to me....even more so picturing it on a mans stomach
May 07, 2010 @ 22:32:21
I should have re-phrased that. I like that piece, but I wouldn't get it on my stomach. I'm trying to come up with something for my stomach.That or possibly fill in the background of my chest piece.
