What Nikaya to start with when reading the Sutta Pitaka?

When reading all of the Sutta Pitaka which Nikaya should you start with?

Tattoos, help or hindrance?

I was wondering what you all you think about Buddhist tattoos. Do they cause attachment to the body which is not self? Do they serve as a reminder of the only truth path to ultimate freedom? What is your take on Buddhism, tattoos, and Buddhist tattoos?
