the vast majority of tattoos i've seen are fucking ugly and/or amateurish, or ridiculous trendy shit girls get on their ankles and shoulder blades, like butterflies and little flowers and, in more recent times, stars and birds. or tramp stamps.
but here are some i thought are cool designs, well made and cool loooking.
also, and this is more of a personal assessment, i think tattoos look best on people with very distinctive styles (nothing worse than the suburban shopping mall prom look with a tattoo on her foot or shoulder). and i tend to think they look best on men. or at least that's been my experience anyway.
this one's nothing spesh but i thought it was cute.
this is pretty full on but it's well done, at least the middle part. i hate that nasty tribal looking shit on his arm:
cute and nerdy:
this one's funny and i like the drawing style.
i usually hate foot/ankle tattoos but find they work better when it's a great design and if you just go all out, instead of a rinky dinky lame flower.
very large but the artwork is amazing:
this one grosses me out but at the same time it's very cool artwork and very well done:
simple but i like it and i like the placement:
i usually hate upper arm/shoulder tats on women but this works. and it's awesome.
i really like this one.
birds are getting all trendy and shit but i still think they can be beautiful if well done and nicely placed.
i love this one. it's very old school/nautical and i love the stark black and white.
