I like tattoos but I want to know about something I have never heard anyone talk about. What kind of effect can too much ink in your body can do. After all they are injecting potencially toxic chemicals into somebodys body.
Well to be fair, Japanese tattoos are literally the art and history of Japan pulled from the old books onto skin and are strictly based off lore and culture. Demons are a very large part of the history and the art, and you cannot change it. Hence why Japanese style tattoos have very strict pairings, such as what flowers can go with what fish or dragons.
wow its absolutely incredible how much history has gone into Japanese ink... I love how its blended into all cultures an is still highly respected as more than just tattoos... so so so beautiful... ONE LOVE(:
Cats are little God's of Mercy in Japan, plus it's kinda funny. Tattooing spots and stripes. I used to know what it meant but I've forgotten. There is a tail to it try googling?. Cats take you to heaven.

10. “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost (1874-1963)
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.
Meaning of the Poem.
This poem deals with that big noble question of “How to make a difference in the world?” On first reading, it tells us that the choice one makes really does matter, ending: “I took the one less traveled by, / And that has made all the difference.”
