    I have wanted a tattoo for years, but my mother's disapproval has always frozen me. She had no problem with anyone else getting one, but not her daughter. Lol.

      That is what everyone always reminds me. I always appreciate the support. It's just hard to not want to disappoint a parent, no matter your age.

      It's the same with my mother, but we managed to work through a compromise. So long as it's not permanent, she's fine with it. Though that does mean I have to personally touch it up every few days.

      I remember when I got my first tat, I was in the Army. When I showed my mom, she said "I don't get it" (despite her having several tattoos). I told her it wasn't for her to get. She had a similar response after I got my full sleeve, which depicts the 3 fates of Roman & Greek mythology. I told her that if she didn't like them, then she was free to not get one

      My mom is just from a different generation where tattoos were only on "bad people." She has never liked or approved of any of my tattoos, but it's my body and she just had to learn to live with it. I have never been to jail or in trouble with the law, never done any drugs, and I don't even drink. I told her if the worst thing I do with my life is get tattoos she should consider herself lucky that I was not and am not a difficult child. I even waited until I was old enough to go get tattooed on my own. I have been much more conservative with getting tattoos than I would like for her sake. Though I am not 100% respectful from her viewpoint, I could be a lot more covered than I am. And I'm currently 28 and still try not to go too crazy for her benefit. lol

    I've always loved looking at tattoos and always wanted one. But for the longest time I never thought I would get one because I hate needles. But after I got in my accident, I've had less of a problem with needles as long as I'm not directly looking at them. I got my first tattoo on the 1 year anniversary of the accident around a burn scar I got in it, and it really wasn't bad at all. I wouldn't mind getting another one, but my mom made me promise not to get one that she could see in my wedding dress one day. I still would like another one though and this documentary makes me excited for that one day I do get my second tattoo.

    I'm so excited! I've been looking forward to this doc ever since Geoff off-handedly mention it in an Off Topic. Didn't expect it to be out this soon. I love creative expression and it's so fascinating hearing people talk about their tattoos and experiences.

    I got my first and only tattoo 6 years ago. My parents were not a fan of it. I've spent the past 2 weeks designing my next tattoo; it's gonna be bigger and more fundamental than it's predecessor. 


    As Geoff so poignantly touches on in the trailer, there is an extension of identity and creativity that comes with a tattoo. Two thoughts popped into my head seeing this: a desire to learn the perspective of a man who has a passion that manifested both earlier and greater than mine, and the relief of knowing such a perspective exists, from a person I respect, when that question of "what will the folks think?" looms so big.


    TLDR: Thanks Geoff geoff (and those involved with this production of RoosterTeeth). I'm looking forward to seeing this in its entirety.

    I mostly just want a tattoo by Geoff now. If said co-worker backs out, I live in Austin, I'm in my 20's, and I still have some uninked skin... just sayin'.

    As someone who doesn't have tattoos, I agree that tattoos look incredibly cool and some are so artistically creative that it adds to the sentiment behind it. This will be really fun to watch. And a bonus: we might see Geoff literally tattoo a dick on someone.

    This is probably the most excited I have been about a Rooster Teeth thing that I have been ever since I first heard about it.  I love tattoos and tattoo culture, so this should be a fun documentary to watch.  I wonder who Geoff convinced to let him tattoo.

    I'll be honest in that I've never been a big fan personally of tattoos. Never really wanted them, and I don't generally think "oh, that's awesome" when I see one or someone wants to show them off. That being said, I do think that they can look good if done properly or with the right designs, but I guess my opinion on them in general has just been influenced by all the crappy ones that people have around the area I currently live in, where they'll spend over $100 just to get something simple done, that looks like a middle schooler could have done better. I am looking forward to this documentary though, and especially seeing Geoff talk about tattoo culture and learning how to do it.....

      Same here. My artist is mad at me because I'm running out of space. 

      And no, I would never let Geoff or anyone else tattoo me. Don't need the artist mad at me for yet another reason. :)
