If you got mostly A’s, you should get a realistic tattoo. Whether it’s a tattoo of your childhood dog or a portrait of your dead aunt, a realistic tattoo will allow you to keep a piece of your history on your skin forever.
If you got mostly B’s, you should get a quote tattoo. You love your words, and now you can etch those cheesy inspirational quotes and deep literary musings right onto your skin.
If you got mostly C’s, you should get a teeny-tiny tatt. You want a tattoo, but might be a bit worried about the commitment. Well, don’t you worry you’re pretty little mind because these fingernail-sized tattoos could be the answer to your prayers.
If you got mostly D’s, you should get a watercolor tattoo. A water color tattoo will allow your colorful, free-spirited nature to flow onto your skin.
If you got mostly E’s, you should get a tribal tattoo. So you think you’re a tough guy? Well maybe you are, but chances are you're just a hipster. But either way, the dark, pronounced lines and intricate designs of tribal tattoos may be right for you.
If you got mostly F’s, you should get a geometric tattoo. You like things simple, clean cut and professional, none of that basic, frilly fru fru garbage, and you want a tattoo to match.
If you got mostly G’s, you should get a traditional tattoo. You like to keep things traditional with bold lines, bright colors and maybe an anchor or two.
