Tattoos are shit. A pointless expression system for the egoistical and vain.

I like'em but I don't like when women tattoo their face because they are destroying something that was already beautiful and unique.

No strong opinions one way or the other. It's not my business what you want to do with your body, and if you like how it looks, then that's cool. I wouldn't get one myself, but I can appreciate them.

I'll echo what others have said, it's your body and not my place to judge. That said, a general sentiment of mine is that I hope people put a lot of time and thought into the choice before going through with it.

By the way, I really like your tattoo. ^_^

While I disagree with your outlook, I'll respect your opinion for what it is

I love some of the art work and look at some of the tattoos drawn out on paper quite a lot. In moderation a small tattoo that can be easily hidden when needed might be fine. I'm not a fan of the let's cover every inch of our bodies in ink though. I myself would never get one.

I think that tattoos are a great way to express yourself and whenever I see people with them I just think they look so cool and they can be so beautiful! Don't know if I'll ever get any though, I'm totally afraid they'll hurt!

I've got nine, but I can dress in ways that you can't see any of them.
I ran into a co worker recently while wearing shorts and a tank top and she was shocked to know I even had tattoos, and she could only see four of them.

Time and place, people. You'd be surprised how many "professional" people are tatted up, so please spare us the spiel on how well-to-do and professional people can't be tattooed. They're easy to cover if you choose to place them appropriately for your lifestyle.

Bottom line, if you don't like 'em, don't get 'em.

Ah, but, personally, I don't like face or full neck tattoos. Some people can totally pull them off, granted, but they aren't my cup of tea.

What she said. They're pretty easy to hide so long as you avoid hands/face.

I hate when people just copy tattoos and then try to argue about how it's an expression of themselves and all that garbage. You're expressing how much you like to copy people?


I agree. If you got it done for the aesthetic appeal, then just admit it. Nothing wrong with that.

But you can never hide them from yourself.

I know a guy who has a tattoo on his chest for his dead dad, way cool. I know another guy who has a very well-done copy of a wildberry pop-tart, and he plays it cool, but for how long? When he's 45, how does he play that as cool?

I witnessed and experienced a guy getting a joke of a spider tattoo with a microphone attached to the gun during a noise show.

None of these tattoos make sense to me, personally, but there's only the pop-tart that I can make fun of. I think they're all fine to have, but I'm not the kind of person who would get a tattoo, and knowing these people has only reassured me of that.

Just because you might be the kind of person to regret things, doesn't mean they are. Plus, when you get older, everything starts to look like crap. Pretty sure someone already said that, and they're right.

I love them but agree with the general sentiment that you really need to think about what you\re going to get and where you're going to get it before hand. And I'm not just talking about a couple days of thought. I have one and am in the process of designing/planning my second.

Personally, I would warn anyone thinking of getting one to try to stay away from anything from pop culture unless it really has a long held deep meaning for you. I'd also strongly caution against getting a tatt in an area you can't fairly easily conceal. Yes, tattoos are fairly common place now and aren't anywhere near as taboo as they used to be but you will get judged (sometimes very harshly) on having tattoos even if they are beautifully designed and done. This is even more true if you get one on your neck, face, hand, etc. Is it fair? Not really, but it's the truth. I'd also advise to get something that actually means something to you because, by and large, it's going to be there forever. In other words, don't just go to the studio and pick something out of the catalogue sitting by the front door.

I hate poorly done tattoos and those damn butterfly wings. I think tattoos are cool as long you're not cover in tattoos, but I hold no illwill towards those who have decorated themseleves.

BTW: Now thats a awesome tattoo, you went to a legit tattoo palor.
