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.
1.) What was that last part??? and 2.) WTF does that have to do with looking like a carnival freak? (The picture in Post#8)

Okay.....other than a tat parlor or a Goth club, where would those two get a paying job?
What was that last part???
Well mister narrow between the ears,,,, It was a cut to you.
Just because some choose to have ink certainly doesn't change what there capability is to earn a good to excellent income.
I learned long ago not just from my tattooed Navy Father but also a neighbor growing up that's a Pagan 1%. Tattoos don't make the man... Both are Korean and VN combat Veterans, their tats tell stories about there lives.
I was making a statement that " she " can easily pay her bills without calling daddy's bestie to get her home, car or motorcycle repaired.
And the funniest part, if one of my employees needed a brakeline replaced, one of us would just jack it up and replace it for her in the shop parking lot. Or go to her home if the truck was there.

Edit,, and I don't believe that she would be scared to work on the brakelines, she tends to like to learn new things.

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.


That is kind of a nice thing, it's just not for me I guess. That reminds me of my wife's nephew, he got a tattoo when his grandfather died. It is 2 paw prints because he called him pawpaw.

Maybe, but probably not, even though it is well done:

Yes, this is what is appropriate:

As with most things associated with the body, the rules for men are far different from the rules for women.

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?
Actually not so much..

You see tattoos on many in the military, like skulls and crossbones... Bloody Tigers.. Knives..

They are more than likely finance clerks, or cooks.

Most of the ones you think would have tattoos don't.

You ever see somebody with a Green Beret tattoo that has their Group on it.. Probably never was..

If I EVER got a tattoo it would be Marvin... or Bugs..

Don't need a "Look at me, I'm a pirate" type of tattoo.

I disagree with that. Its painfully obvious that you didn't serve.

And what's a " Group " in the Armed Services?????

Some of those silly skulls crossbones, M16, parachute, paddles, scuba and on and on all have meaning to those that know.

I do appreciate tattoos that have meaning.. and stories..
My sister loved the starfish, so that is what I got on my shoulder. The guy who designed it was the one who also gave me the tattoo.

Four pics to the finished design:

Just out of curiosity, did you ever serve?

Because a lot of people in the military, even if they were not Army, knows what a "Group" is when talking about Green Berets, as Bob was.

There are five active duty Special Forces Groups and two National Guard Groups. Each group is assigned to a certain geographic region. 10th Group is Europe, 5th is the Middle East, 7th is South America, etc, etc.

Tattoos are so damn popular nowadays it's more rare to find people without them than with them. The old "traditional" military tattoos are all but gone on today's young service members. Tattoo artists nowadays are doing some mind blowing work and only getting better.

It used to be you went in to a shop, picked out a picture on the wall that the artist had a pre-cut stencil made and that was it. Lines were big and bold and color was packed in with no real shading. Those were the old school military style tattoos. Eagles, daggers, sailing ships, wings, etc, etc.
