What do you think about tattoos? They used to be just for bikers and military vets but now I think there is a law requiring everyone over the age of 10 to get one.
To each his own I guess but I'm not really a big fan, I can't think of anything that I would want to look at for the rest of my life. and when I see a pretty girl with a big ole tattoo it turns me off almost as much as her smoking a cigarette. :banghead:

I love my tattoos (and I also smoke, but it doesn't matter because I'm taken anyway :love:).

I have no opinion on other peoples' tattoos, unless they're either really pretty or really ugly.

Didn't this train stop in the station a few years ago?

Buckle up.

I love my tattoo. I've had mine for about 5 years. I got it the year after my sister died - it was in honor of her that I got it.

I don't care either way; except for some of those guys you see on Lockup, who have them all over their faces. I guess they don't plan on getting much of a job when they're done serving their life sentences. ;)

When I see a particularly pretty sleeve on some young thing, I always wonder what it'll look like at age 58.

I think the tattoo thing takes away from military tattoos. Back in the day, that was a mark of bravery. Today, I think, so many people are so lost that they have to brand their body to stand out. I, actually, would like to see tattoos that can be covered (and one can have a chance at getting a real job); the ridiculous piercings of the face and lips is another story/thread. How do those people even kiss anyone anymore? Do they understand it looks hideous? Just wondering. Also, aren't tattoos physically harmful, as far as getting pricked with a needle and ink, and all?

Tattoos in general have been around for literally thousands of years and were not solely dedicated to military members.

Times are-a-changin' and as someone who could care less what other people do to their body, and as someone with a "real" job with tattoos that can't be covered and a big beard, maybe it's time we move past the idea that someone's looks dictate how they should be treated or viewed?

Okay.....other than a tat parlor or a Goth club, where would those two get a paying job?
I have a woman that welds for me that has full sleeves, back and a bunch on her legs.
Piercing that will make a gay man stare in the summer months. She is a superb welder and a great natured person to work around. She also has thicker skin than most men, she is a person that you don't play Truth or Dare with or Dare to show the new hardware that she had installed the weekend before.
Tattoos have never bothered me nor have I ever judged someone for having tattoos.
I have a few from my travels in life myself.


Edit,, and she is quite capable of paying for her car repairs herself.

THAT right there is a biggie!

Nothing pizzes me off more than seeing some woman or man trying to show off their latest $600 artwork and how cool it is and then, next breath is "I need some gas money."

In the tradition of Island mens, this fine specimen of a Samoan man had nearly completed his entire body tattoo when we visited. He explained the process to us and said he was having this done as part of becoming a Chief.

It is an extremely lengthy and painful process...
