What does everyone think of Tattoos?

I've never understood the need to paint a permanent brand on oneself. Even if some of it is amazing artwork, wouldn't you rather see it on some other canvas than human skin?

CBC story on body art and piercing...

I guess I better refrain from posting certain body parts that had been pierced. I don'y have the balls.

Turnoff!
If a girl has a small one that can't be easily seen then I guess it's OK.
I'd rather them not have one at all.

Health Canada defines tattooing as the art of permanently depositing pigment into the skin to a depth of 1-2 mm to create a design. An electric machine vibrates a cluster of needles hundreds of times per minute to puncture the skin and deposit the pigment. The art dates bate to 2000 B.C. as a tribal custom in many different parts of the world, including Africa and North America.

I think it's a turnoff. Funny to read this thread though as literally two seconds ago I was reading a thread on another board where people were posting their tattoos. One was beautiful artistically but I wouldn't want it on my arm.

It used to be cool but now, its a complete turnoff. Only neo-wannabees get them today to be like everyone else.

Major turnoff! Imagine marrying a chick, let's say you're both 30, the tatoo looks nice then, but wait until you celebrate your silver anniversary or more, how good will that tatoo look then? UGH! Especially if she has it on her buttcheek, or another interesting place. Do you wanna look at her tatoo when she's 60???

In certain parts of the world, tatoos (like the kind featured in the opening post) are frequently associated with the underworld and organized crime. So, not only is it a turnoff, it's also a police magnet.

I find tattoo's a turn-on depending how they are. Such as size, location, what the tattoo is. I like reasonably sized tattoos on the small of a womans back, lower neck (on occasion), ankle, even sometimes on the arm, ect. But when a chick has more tattoos than a Hells Angel, then it becomes a turn-off.

I have 5 myself, am close to getting number 6, but all my tattoos can be covered by a T-Shirt. Always will be.

There may be a case for a small descreet tattoo on a woman. But generally, I'd have to say that it's a turn-off to me. Notice I used the term "woman" instead of "lady". That about sums up my feelings I guess.
BTW, of particular annoyance to me are girls with "the standard" tattoos. You know, the ones EVERYONE gets; the norge (top of ass crack to lower back), the Chinese character on the back of the hip, barbed wire on the arm (I always wonder why anyone thinks that's cool. Are we supposed to think that it is real and they are just that tough?), and the boob/cleavage area (If there were a field guide to identify white trash women, this one would be definitive.)

I have to agree about tattoos are fine if they are small. I had a friend once that I was totally into her, and then she got a tattoo. It was a sweet looking tattoo, but she had it put on her leg, total turnoff. She was originally going to have it put on her back, but got it put on her leg instead. Then she got another on her calf, and was about to get one on her ankle the last time I saw her a few years ago. I have considered get one a few time over the last 6 years or so, but have decided against it. There's nothing more sad than a old saggy tattoo. If you're going to get one, get something small, that has meaning to you, and will be something twenty years down the road that still means something to you. These people that get their boyfriend or girlfriend's name tattooed on them are idiots. On girl I dated had an ex-boyfriend's first inital tattoo in between her breasts, luckily for me his inital was an "S", so she could say it was for my name. She used to say that it stood for her astrological sign, Scorpio. I mean tattoos nowadays aren't exactly a rebel thing. I had friends in high school that got them, and I really wasn't too impressed at all. I even knew a guy that did his own tattoos with a homemade tattoo pen and using India ink. In several states, tattoos are illegal; in fact, in South Carolina recently, they arrested a tattoo artist for doing a demonstration on a local TV show.

One development I don't like. Was down in Tokyo last weekend and every second girl had a tattoo across the small of her back and wearing the cut-off shirt so it was not only visible but you really couldn't miss it.

Mainly something deep and meaningful in gothic script. I thought it looked plain slutty and surely something they will regret.

BTW I have tattoos (turned on yet KROC) but there are limits of taste and fashion. I mean these things aren't going to go away despite claims that removal is getting easier and cheaper.

Srbmod-
I completely agree about them not being a rebel thing anymore. In fact, I think tattoo shops might as well put a big sign in the window saying, "CONFORM!!!"!

This guy's ads ran in the local weekly. Some of them were pretty funny. His work is pretty amazing. His clientele are obvioulsy not sorority girls getting Winnie the Pooh tattoos on their bikini line...

A good tattoo looks great on the right person. There's nothing worse than a bad tattoo on the wrong person though.

MAJOR TURN OFF. Can't stand them.

What I never understood is why people have his/her significant other/wife/husbands name tatooed on their bodies. I've seen quite a few people break up with the person whos name they now have permanently tatooed on their body. Pretty stupid, huh?

I just don't get the appeal. And the pain... why go through all of that?

Another good ass tatoo is to put a big "W" on each cheek, so when you bend over, well, "WOW" comes to mind.  Smile

A good friend of mine has a few tatoos, and he wants to sleeve his arms. Weird thing is, he doesn't care about art in any form, but he tells me how great the art is when it refers to a tatoo. I tell him all the time, go and buy a nice painting, and if you get sick of it, you can get rid of it. I admit, the work is excellent, but I'd like to see the tatoos in 10 years and how bad they'll look then. I'll get the last laugh.  Smile
