    Tattoos

    Picked up the latest Juice over lunch today and the feature this week is interesting to say the least: dmJuice.com :: Juice-Live & Work

    Baffles me why some people would put so much ink on their bodies, too much is just unattractive I think. Two comments I got a kick out of:

    Nichole Hiller, 25 "They represent growth"
    Meredith Goerat, 20 "The one on my arm is a memorial tattoo as well as my view against the war."

    Ok, what exactly is an arm covered in ink representing "growth?" And a memorial tat I can understand but "view against the war?" What you gonna tell your grand kids some day about that one? "yeah I was so cool back in the days, that was a statement tattoo about the Iraq war!"

    Re: Tattoos

    I think tattoo's are cool I'm just not going to spend all that money on them. I guess I'll have to wait to go to the clink to get all tatted up.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I'm an old geezer (age 50) and can't wait for this fad to be over. Especially don't find them attractive on a woman's body, which I believe is just fine the way it is and doesn't need any 'growth' covering it.

    Re: Tattoos

    Some tats I dont mind. Alot of the ones enlisted guys got in the war to honor the fallen, their platoon, etc are super cool. Something that is a lifetime treasure is also ok with me (parents names, favorite team, etc) Having a huge dragon wrapped around your whole body is stupid. Having your girlfriends name tattooed or a temporary event is also stupid.

    Not a fan of the over-done tramp stamp either. Get original ladies.

    Re: Tattoos

    I guess laser removal technology has made it possible for idiots to make permanent idiotic political statements on their bodies without the nasty little thing of permanent getting in the way.

    Re: Tattoos

    I only want one tattoo - a coat of arms with helm, sword, and drapery, and below that on an unrolled scroll Ephesians 6 (verses escape my memory) - the Armor of God section.

    It doesn't make sense because by the time she has grandchildren there probably won't be an Iraq. "Granny, what's an Iraq?"

    Re: Tattoos

    My favorite is the women who get their lips tattooed the color of lipstick so they dont have to wear lipstick. I also like the people who get the stuff shoved under their skin so it makes raised patterns.

    My favorite is when people tell Mike Tyson that thing on his face is cool. "Yeah Mike it looks awesome, I think I might get one"

    growth as in when you get old it will expand and sag? Such as barb wire turning into a picket fence.

    Re: Tattoos

    I've seen a few tattoos that used profanity. I'll bet they work well for job interviews.

    I believe that this isn't a fad and it will never be over. Tattoos have been around for years and years and I don't see them going away.

    To me tattoos with a personal meaning are the risky ones. I, having 3 tattoos, never got one for someone or to mean something. They are just designs that I think look good. No remorse in getting them and nothing personal to tie them to, to make me regret them down the line.


    Your shopping cart, like your impoverished soul, is empty.

    Re: Tattoos

    I have tats as well, but of course they mean something significant to me (heritage, initials, etc). I started mine on the back shoulder blade and up to the shoulder, but nothing you can see "for job purposes" as some people look at it as unprofessional (unfortunately) plus i don't need to show them off.

    I love mine though - plus, i get them for free or tip only, because, well, everyone needs to know a tat guy ;)
