Tattoo Design Has Now Peaked

Pip Foweraker is a thoughtful, careful man, so he spent considerable time contemplating what he would like to have as his first and possibly only tattoo. His friends advised against the whole idea. After all, what will it look like when he's old? Tattoos are, practically speaking, forever. So Foweraker established a general principle to address this problem:

...the best solution would be to get a tattoo so over-the-top awesome, and filled with personal meaning and satisfaction, that it would be literally impossible for me to ever regret getting it.

Careful reasoning led him to conclude that the ultimate tattoo -- one that would be impossible for anyone to regret -- would be one showing a tyrannosaurus rex and Optimus Prime giving each other a high five. You can find his detailed argument at the link, which I think you will agree is flawless.

Indeed, he has the right idea. Get what you love, that's my tattoo philosophy. For instance, I love this one. But to truly be "mine" I'd have Bumblebee. No extendahands necessary there!

I still think he will regret it someday.

I will never get a tatoo because everyone I know that has one or more regrets them..... especially ones in places that are hard to conceal.

I think it's awesome.

@Sandi, I've had mine for 17 years now and I've got no regrets. But like Pip I did spend a lot of time thinking about what I wanted and made sure it was somewhere (my shoulder) that was easy to cover at work etc., but was also easy to show people if I wanted to.
