I've a feeling if this dude was real and I met him my panties would FLY ACROSS THE ROOM OKAY. Seriously now, I love the tattoo designs here. Especially the OCTOPUSomg. And the way the blueish, desaturated colors contrast against his skin is really really nice.
Sleeve tattoos are the best to get. You have more options than a standard one shot tat. Quarter, half, full sleeve, or you can just have the forearm. There's always a skull somewhere in your tattoos it seems. Really nice designs but the anchor by his collarbone is my favourite.
btw tattoo's are the best, I've got a layer of stick men fighting with different types of weapons on the small of my back that goes from one side of my body to the other. Totally epic, to this date I don't know anyone who has those and for those of you who read this and go "omg childish much" that's the point, later on I wanna get the four horsemen on my back some where and it's gonna resemble the four horsemen as the government and the stick men as the pawns (us) who fight their wars for them.
Affordability is a major concern- tattoos are certainly a luxury in developed nations. I know where I live, you have to pay a pretty penny to get good quality work. It'd be possible for me to get something less awesome, but I'm terrified of living with a terrible tattoo (I already have one that I'm less than satisfied with- wish I'd waited or been more assertive about what I wanted).
Just a note (because I'm social-justice minded, don't hate!) people on welfare often face a lot of barriers to employment and experience a lot of hardship. Of course there will always be people exploiting these systems, but please consider challenging assumptions about what kind of lives most people on welfare lead. That said, I'm not trying to undermine the hardship of your own experience- being a student is really challenging and expensive. Food security is often a major concern. I hope you have access to resources that may help you to be well-nourished so that you can get the most out of your education!
