    Not a lot, you look great! Just depends on your personal preference but you'll look great either way. Also I love your ink!

    I'd guess you're in the 18-20% body fat range. Nobody can tell you how much weight you need to lose because we don't know your current weight and height and we don't know what your goal is.

    I think generally you can get down to 10-12% body fat without too much danger of losing muscle, if, 1) you are consistently lifting according to a well-structured, progressive lifting program, 2) you are eating sufficient protein, approximately 0.8-1 gram per pound of body weight per day, and 3) you don't try to lose more than 1-1.5% of your body weight per week. There are other factors but those three are by far the most important.
