Not yet but for years I have thought about getting the Let Go black star on my wrist like she has and many other fans have copied. Now is not the right time (for example, some jobs don't let you have tattoos or you have to cover them), and I wanted to make sure years later I still want it, so I am waiting, but perhaps someday I'll get it.
I have the let go star on my wrist, also the lighning bolt and the music note which I share with my best friends for the sake of loving music. And I have the FUCK tattoo which is one of my fave words in English.
I do have an Avril-inspired tattoo. It's now been three years since I had it done. It's basically an almost replica of her lightning bolt tattoo on her wrist/forearm. I always loved it, but I didn't want to put a 30 just because she had it (and had a completely different personal meaning to her), so I gave it a twist and put the 14 on it, which symbolizes the year 2014: my most life-changing year on a personal level. I also love how the lighting bolt symbolizes a sudden struck, which to me was a sudden change in my life that turned it around for the better.
I'm not sure why avril picked the cupcake for her cover up at the end of the day it's up to her what's on her body but for me I would be annoyed about seeing the old tattoo under the new one. It would have covered better with black ink in a tattoo. It's the only tattoo of avrils I will admit I'm not keen on and it's because of the reason above. On the whole her tattoo choices are fantastic and it's not like I haven't had bad tattoos in the past that got covered or fixed by another artist.

I don't think I will ever get a tattoo because I am afraid to get it done, but I've always loved the idea of getting lyrics as tattoos.
Since maybe 2013, I have envisioned getting "With you by my side, I will fight and defend" on the back of my shoulder in remembrance of my younger sister who passed in late 2010. I have no idea about the font choice, but I imagine there would also be a blue heart or flower somewhere around the lyrics, because my sister loved the color blue and she loved gardening. However, that wasn't the first set of lyrics I chose lol. At first, I wanted to get "So far away, I wish you were here" done in 2011. As much as I love that lyric, I'm glad I never got it tattoed on me. I just feel like it didn't really relate to how my sister was - strong, outgoing, and lovable. Not only that, but looking back now with more knowledge than I knew back then, I would probably feel like I was stuck in 2010, not accepting that my sister was in a better place. If any of that makes sense.
I also love the idea of tattoos behind the ear, but I imagine it hurts like hell!
I don't have tattoos but I love to see them on other's people
Am I weird? Maybe I'm just too afraid of the needle haha
That's super common, actually. I know a lotta people that don't want tats for themselfs, but like to see them on other people.
I don't have any Avril inspired tattoos and I wouldn't want to either. Having tattoos (I have 14 I think, kinda lost count) is something very from me to me. Whatever I choose to get tattooed is only inspired by me, my life or certain times I've went through/passed. I'll also have to say that I try to be as individual as possible (in times where it indeed seems rather impossible - I know!).
I don't judge people that get inspired by their idols and therefore choose to get a similar/same tattoo as their idols, but for me it wouldn't be an option.
You should maybe rename this thread in just 'the tattoo thread', takes off a bit the pressure and is more welcoming to all tattooed people.

No I have a small Placebo inspired tattoo instead "Les âmes sœurs ne meurt jamais" which is French for Soulmates never die. It has 'The' at the beginning though but oh well! And I love mineee. I don't plan on getting anymore, if I did then I would put the Placebo angel wings logos beside that one.
