    Great compilation, I must admit. Actually, I’ve been looking through couple tattoo designs for a while lately ’cause we’re planning to make such tatts for me and my wife. But we want to be sure that designs we’ll finally pick would be, you know, on trend but not out-of-fashion. Are tattoos on this page fresh? ‘Cause they differ a lot from couple tattoos on this page (Dubuddha) which we took as sort of a landmark. Can you help for us not to look stupid with crappy old-fashioned tattoos?
    Thanks!

      Keep in mind 50 years from now, your “on trend” tattoo will be crappy and old-fashioned. Get a tattoo that means something personal to you, don’t follow what you think is ‘fresh’ – those are the ones that usually look silly years from now.
