“Love lasts forever, but a tattoo lasts six months longer“
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but tattooed words give you a lot more to talk about. Got something to say? Just choose what font you want to say it with.

“Geek” is a state of mind and, as such, it’s entitled to its own ink genre:

Get Inspired by Great Art
You can always find inspiration in great art. If you still have trouble deciding what you want to engrave on your skin, don’t hesitate to pay homage to your favorite artist.
Want Your Tattoo to Count?
1. Don’t say “I’m going to have this for the rest of my life, so it’s got to be earth-shatteringly special.” Pick something you like now. The years will pass, but the tattoo will be a reminder of your state of mind at the time.
2. Don’t look for something that’s already been done. Those image books in the tattoo store are only meant for inspiration, be original – don’t copy.
3. Look deeply into your soul. What do you see in there? This black hole of desperation won’t make a good tattoo, but you can never lose with a ‘Hello Kitty’ icon ; )
4. As the epic movie “The Karate Kid” taught us, Pain does not exist in this dojo. [or, Pain is only a state of mind]. Don’t hold back from making a huge yakuza-style tattoo because of pain. Pain is temporary, and tattoo-love is forever. The bigger the better.
We’re never tired of cool tattoos! If you feel your tattoo can serve as a source of inspiration – share it with us. Happy ink!
