These tats will give you seriously itchy fingers.

If you're thinking about getting a tattoo, your parents (no matter what age you are!) will probably say one of two things. Either a) don't get them at all or b) if you're going to get them, don't get them anywhere people can see, "you'll never get a job!" etc.

While we don't know the employment status of any of the people in this gallery, we can say they definitely have some impressive tats. And besides, we're pretty sure most people are cool with visible tattoos nowadays. At least, that's what you'll be saying after checking out these badass tattoos...
