What Type of Tattoo Should You Get?
by Brian Whitney

While in the old days a tattoo was a sign of someone who was a rebel, and maybe even just a bit dangerous, these days tattoos are everywhere and worn by all sorts of people from different walks of life. You may have decided that you want a tattoo, but what kind of tattoo should you get? 

There are so many different kinds of tattoos. Maybe you want the traditional style, kind of old school and cartoonish, or maybe you want a realistic-looking tattoo of a face or a scene.  Tribal tattoos are really hot right now, both with people who dig their cultural significance and with people that just think they look cool. A type of tattoo that is totally hot right now is new school, which is cartoonish, but in a current style. If you really want to impress your crowd, maybe a Japanese-inspired tattoo is what you are looking for.
