Clearly I need to define that post a little. If you have native roots...you can cover your body in all the tribal tat's you want. You know the meanings behind them. Unlike some white suburbanite kid, freshly 18, who wanders into a shop and goes...."ah....gimmie ummm....THAT!"
As for the cartoon character comment. Some people pick those as they're easy choices. Also stupid. But for some people, they have an emotional attatchment to the character, so I say go for it.
I've got Vivi from FF9. But there's more to my choosing than the fact he looks cool as hell. His character (the mage) has made many apprearances throughout the history of the franchise. So to signify my love for the series, who better to pick? Another reason I went with him is because out of all the characters, I relate the best to him. We're both small in design, but our talents and good nature make us likeable, yet lethal. Also, I relate a lot to the role he played in the game. Going from a powerless feeble creature (in thought) only to find out all he ever needed resided inside him.
As you can see...a decent amount of thought went into it.

I'm not here to sway your opinion, because lord knows if ya don't like something, ya probably never will. But after reading ^^^ that...I should doubt you think of them as meaningless anymore. But you're entitled to if ya want.
I just noticed you're only 13. In five years time, your thoughts will more than likely change on the matter and you'll find yourself in the chair. In fact...I guarentee it. For I said the same exact thing at that age. I also said I'd only get one when I got my first one. 2 1/2 years later I was getting ink again and now have 4 of'em. So yea. Never say never, right?
