About This Quiz

Tattoos aren't bell bottoms. Tattoos aren't a haircut. Getting a tattoo should not be a frivolous decision, no matter what your friends say after a night of drinking that ends at a local tattoo parlor. Tattoos are deeply personal value statements, even when they aren't meant to be.

If you get a tattoo that suggests a religious affiliation, it's reasonable to assume that not only are you a member of said faith, but that you take it very seriously. If you got a symbol related to a sports team, or a comic book, or a hate group, the meaning would similarly be taken. Even just getting some flash from the wall of a tattoo parlor says that you're a bit impulsive, and depending on how NSFW that tattoo is, it could say other things you may not want it to say.

Do not fret. We have some questions for you. Answer them, and we will be able to guide you to the ink appropriate to your personality. If you don't agree with our pick that's fine, but if you get canned for getting a Mike Tyson facial tattoo, don't blame us. Tell us a bit about your personality, and we'll tell you what design to have indelibly inked into your living flesh!
