I don't want to get a tattoo,
lest people think that i am a yakuza, and ban me from japanese bath houses.

so maybe i'd get a tattoo of me being really mean to a yakuza,
so that japanese bath house owners would know where I stood on the issue.

Probably a hummingbird somewhere near the top left of my chest... But I won't ever get a tattoo because of reasons.

I don't plan to get another tattoo any time soon since the one I got 5 years ago hurt like hell (yeah, I'm a big and whiny sissy) . If I were to get another one, though, I would want something really sciency-nerdy. But I'll need to wait a few years until I'm in a lab or something and settle on a specific area of study and then get inked with some important aspect of it that I'm sure I'll love.

I would get a ghost tattooed on my butt because then I could tell people that my butt is haunted and how much cooler can you get?

That's the title of a porn movie, or so I hear.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Alice's Adventures in Wonderland so I'd get the image of the Cheshire cat in the tree talking to Alice on my back with the tree on my shoulder. And along the trunk of the tree I'd get "We're all mad here." But my mom says I should wait until I'm at least 30 and make sure it won't sag later on in life.

If I got a tattoo, it would be one of a big mandala or magic/summoning circle on my back, full of occult symbols, an hexagram running across it, the works. Not just random cool-looking stuff, but deliberately-chosen stuff that spells out something significant for the initiated. Not because I think it will make me a Super Magic Guy (I don't really, but it doesn't hurt to try :P ) but because I like occult studies and occult imagery. And, well, there's the possibility other people might think I'm a Super Magic Guy, which is always a nice leverage ;D
Did I do, O CROM, did I as I said Id do? Good! I did.

lol

the only reason i would get a tattoo is if i could convince myself that it conferred some sort of supernatural power like the ability to cook rice without screwing it up. what kind of tattoo would that be anyway?

A recipe. Just don't tattoo it on your butt, that might be a bit unsanitary.

Come to think of it, instructions for things you use all the time and that aren't easily memorized sounds like a nice choice for a tattoo on your forearms.

...maybe something out of XKCD...

Better yet, get the XKCD Linux Cheat Sheat shirt tattoed on your chest/stomach...

This is a shirt with a Linux cheat sheet printed upside-down, so you can glance down at it while hacking. Aimed at the non-guru, it's mainly an overview of useful programs and in some cases handy arguments, and includes a guide to regular expressions.
