Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

        If I was gonna get an Armenian Tatoo. I'd get a scene.
        Picture this:

        you get the tatoo of Ararat, both Great and Small.
        On the peak of Great Ararat you have the flag of Armenia.
        And maybe a small Armenian church right by the mountain.
        Hmm, "nothing CRAZY". well, take the Small Ararat peak out.

        Or how about this one, the tatoo of Akhtamar, or Tsitsernakaberd.

        Finally if non of these options are good, maybe you can tatoo this guy on your left shoulder :

          Personally, if I had to make such a statement, I would not tattoo clichés such as the mount Ararat, the Armenian flag. Not only it may say: "that's all we have to show," but they may not - as tattoos - be esthetically appealing.
          Instead I would chose - for a tattoo - themes from the following; because of the colors, simplicity of the lines and esthetic appeal :
          1- Ancient ceramics - some nice patterns, themes
          2- Medieval "illustrations" - "enluminures" in French
          3- Patterns from old napkins and/or rugs
          4- Armenian painters. For instance, some of the paintings of Minas Avetisian - slightly simplified - may render nicely as tattoos. Examples:










          The themes and colors have an Armenian touch!


          For more ideas check the following
          1- If available in Canada, "Armenie entre Orient et Occident" published by the "Bibliotheque Nationale de France".
          2- on http://armsite.com
          - http://armsite.com/miniatures/
          - http://armsite.com/rugs/

          Please, let us know what you decide! Thanks! You may be setting a trend!!!!

          What if I find someone else when looking for you? My soul shivers as the idea invades my mind.

              It depends how tasteful they are, where they are, how many and of course, the quality!
              A single one, with nice colors/size/quality where she wants to have it can be delightful!

                I'm sure, but generally speaking tattoos have been the hallmark of criminal and lowly elements, and generally speaking, they still are the hallmark of the knaves. It's funny because I used to be all into this idea of getting a tattoo but now my view on it has changed 180, as I've matured. I don't mind if you want to get it, but I still have my ideas of what tattoos are and the kind of people that generally get them.

                  I always get Henna Tattoos but I've never really thought about getting a real one. It all depends on whats tasteful, what you like, and if you can deal with having it on your body for the rest of your life.
                  If you have it,
                  you don't need to have anything else.
                  If you don't have it,
                  it doesn't matter much what else you do have.

                    What my question is, what is the point of getting a tattoo? What is the reason that motivates one to get it?
