"What tattoo should I get?" ranks right up there next to "Should I get bangs?" on the list of all-consuming questions everybody has asked themselves at least thrice in their lifetime, the inconvenient difference being that the former comes with something like 21,839 more multiple-choice options. How can you decide, then, between a quote, roman numeral, or portrait tattoo? Between an out-there design and subtle white ink? Something big or something small? Body art, after all, is highly subjective.

Instead, consider this: let your individual personality type determine your next tattoo. The decision is infinitely more permanent than finding the ENFP to your INFJ or whether to pursue culinary school over business, and so what better indicator to consider beforehand than what makes you, well, you?

If this sounds complicated, we're here to make it easy. Whether it's your first or 10th (or something in between), we've laid out the exact tattoo you should get based on your personality type. Let us know where you land with the whole bangs thing.
