IMO a lot of people jump the gun and get a tattoo without a good idea and it usually looks really douchey. Like people who are 1/4 Irish with no ties to their Irish roots will get an Irish tattoo. Or they'll get an overused quote like "Live life to the fullest."
I think I'd only get a tattoo of something that's defined me for most of my life. I'd probably get an American symbol, a Steelers logo, or a quote from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I'd get in on one of my arms.
What would you get and where?

I'd get a set of 2/3 orchids to represent the bond between myself, my sister, and my best friend. They're probably the people who mean the most to me in life, and I'm beyond thankful to have the ability to know them. The whole orchid thing started as an inside joke and would take forever and a day to explain... I don't even know if I could properly describe it/put it into words haha, but overall, orchids have become something that I associate our bond with. Plus, it'd make a nice looking tattoo!
Another one that I would get, one that I could possibly combine with the first, is pretty simple. I just want the words Above & Beyond, which would represent a good amount of things for me. First off, the name itself is a trance/progressive (electronic music group) that really got me into the scene a couple years back, and they've helped me realize my passion for djing/music production even more. Not only this, but it's kind of like another way of saying, 'go big or go home,' which I tend to say pretty often. I really want to go far in life and believe that if you try ridiculously hard, it will pay off in some form or fashion. (ie, go 'above & beyond') My dad's done it with his life, so who says I can't do the same? So yeah, that's about it! Not sure where I'd put these babies (gotta stay classy, you know? haha), but those are the tattoos that I'd get (and might possibly get some time in the future :) !
