You're ready to do it. There really are just two kinds of people in this world: those who have tattoos and those that don't. Once you get a tattoo, you are part of the club forever; whether you have tattoos all over your body, or whether you just a small one on your ankle, once you get inked up you can't go back. Which is exactly why you are going to think long and hard about what kind of tattoo you are going to get.
