    I dislike needles and don't even have my ears pierced, so that's a no for me.

    I don't have a tattoo and I don't think I will ever get one. If I do I have one rule that I think everyone should live by: it has to be able to be covered up by a t-shirt. Nothing on your wrists or neck (DUMB) or face (REALLY DUMB).
    Personally I think it's smart to be able to at least cover your tattoos with a long sleeve shirt. A lot more places of business are more relaxed about tattoos now but you don't want it to, even unconsciously, affect you chances of getting or keeping a job.

    Of course by the time my kids are old enough to get full time jobs their bosses will all have full sleeves and facial tattoos

    You can't tell us something like this without a picture.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    BTW, hot girls with tattoos is really sexy. I'm not a huge fan of LOTS of tats, but a few subtle ones are hot.

    Re: Friday OT #2 - Tattoos

    I'm old enough now to recall a time when tattoos were only really seen on "rough" people or rebels of one flavor or another, and perhaps the occasional enlisted military man. Unheard of to see on a woman who wasn't on the back of a Harley. It doesn't ring a negative bell in my head like it did 25-30 years ago. I tend to think of it more as someone who chooses to treat their body as a canvas and share something with the world, mostly about themselves or their perspective on whatever they care deeply about. I know they're basically mainstream now, but if the ink hits the neck and/or face or covers a lot of area of the body, that still strikes me as odd and non-mainstream. It not something that even phases me anymore as every other suburban mom and dad at the subdivision pool has a little something on an ankle, shoulder, wrist.

    I have often chuckled at the thought of our caregivers in 30-40 years who will working these nursing homes. I'm sure it will be a common question from the nurses working to care for the elderly of 2040 and beyond to say, "What's that tattoo supposed to be?" Faded ink on saggy, stretched canvasses. What will we think of our 'art' then?

    Or younger...


    I saw a hilarious photo on Facebook of a woman who was probably in her sixties, getting a flag tattoed on her batwing. Her reasoning? "If they're going to be flapping & waving every time I raise my arms, might as well have something worth waving on them."

    I like her style! :)

    Re: Friday OT #2 - Tattoos

    I have 15 tattoos, and am 6ish hours into another 20+ hour piece that will count as one but will take up pretty much my whole back.

    I have some really nerdy tattoos (I have Doctor Doom as a half sleeve on my right arm) and a bunch of stuff that is personal and will never have any meaning except to me and maybe a few other people that remember. I don't regret a single one of them, and when I look back on pictures of myself, I always feel like there is something missing.

    I also have piercings because of reasons.

    I remember when one tattoo was rebellious too.

    It seems that since tattoos are no longer taboo by themselves people feel the need to tattoo their entire body and get 20 piercings in order to show how extreme they are. That's cringe-worthy to me.

    I also cringe when I see cliche and trendy tattoos, particularly on young people.

    Yeah, that barb wire on your bicep is really edgy. Nope, you wont regret that tramp stamp. Yes, get a tattoo of Calvin peeing on your rival schools logo.

    The people that have real artwork tattooed on them impress me.

    A properly-cared for tattoo can look amazing for 100 years :)

    I didn't believe you at first, but I take it back. That is a spot on portrait of Prince and Rosanne. My condolences.

    Yeah, if the artist was going for Rosanne and Prince he ******* nailed it.
