There are some important things that you want to remember before you choose to get your Superman tattoo or any tattoo. Please be sure to research your tattoo. Make sure that you completely understand what your tattoo represents and stands for. You don't want to get inked and find out later that your tattoo represents something different from what you originally thought.

Don't rush to get inked! Men and women that rush to get tattooed usually end up with a tattoo that they later regret. Don't make this same mistake. Remember, you are going to sport this for the rest of your life. If your having second thoughts or questioning your tattoo choice, don't get tattooed. Wait until you are completely sure before you make the leap.

Superman tattoos are a great choice for many reasons. The Superman symbol is an iconic symbol that represents many positive attributes as a tattoo. Superman tattoos give you a variety of options to weigh out, so hopefully you can find one that fits your personality and style.

      Thank you all for taking the time to comment, vote, and everything in between. You all are right, there is a level of achievement, a level of perfection to some extent. For many, he is a hero. For some, even after all these years.

      I agree that part of the reason that the Superman tattoo may be the most popular is because it represents ideals worth striving for. Voting this Up and Beautiful.

      "Faster than a speeding bullet; more powerful than a locomotive; able to leap tall buildings at a single bound.....look, up in the sky....."

      This one I loved, but then I've loved Superman since I was a kid and George Reeves was the Man of Steel!
