  • I really want to get a little petite one in honour of my son but Im afraid of getting hep B or C or whatever else u can get :(
  • As long as an individual is mature enough to realise that it's for life, and not have something that they may regret in the future, as it's with you for life, unless you have loads of money for surgical removal.... go for it, but try and make sure it's tasteful
  • I've been toying with getting one for years. Now that I'm approaching the tender age of 45, I think the time has come, but deciding on what the tattoo should be is a huge decision.
  • I miss the good old days, when only sailors and biker chicks had tattoos.
  • Each to there own - personally, I like them (I have 3) My boyfriend doesn't like them at all so I probably wont get any more.
  • I get the feeling that a lot of people go for tattoos because they are great attention getters and conversation starters. I guess people have this inherent need for validation and affirmation and they choose the tattoo as an instrument of their self expression. Personally I never went for tattoos. I got this far without ever having one so why should I ruin a good thing.
  • On the right person with the right look, they can look absolutely amazing and incredibly sexy. I despise "chick tatt's" as we call them here - meaningless little bunches of flowers or fairies that don't mean anything and just look tacky. Those kinds of tattoo's are heinous. I have wanted a tattoo for a long time - I think that I know what I want to get it and that the time will be right to get it sometime next year. That will be fun. Tattoo's are cool, but Scarification is way, way cooler. My partner has some absolutely amazing, intricate Scarification artwork on his chest and back. I believe that part of what makes it so incredible looking is that it is quite unusual, and that the patterns are part of his Native American heritage.
  • To each his own. I don't really mind a tat or two (I have a very small, black only, winged heart on my upper thigh). I am wondering what some of this "artwork" is going to look like when the people get old and wrinkled.
  • I have one. To each his/her own. Other people's tattoos are not my business.
  • I like tattoos...thats why I'm covered in them.
  • I have one on my upper arm/shoulder area that I got when I was 17. (Back then, they would do that! ) Would I do it over again ? Probably not !! One thing I can say about them is that they are permanent !
  • I think they're hot and sexy, but I'd never have one because they're so permanent.
  • Fine for some - I don't want any.
  • I like them...I have 6! And it's really none of my business what anyone else does to their body!
  • Fine for some. I have three, one I hate, one I tolerate, and one I still kind of like. I wish I hadn't gotten them, though.
  • I despise them in every way.
  • I love my tattoo. It's in the "tramp stamp" location (lower back) but the reason I got it there was so it would only be visible if I chose it to be so. My tattoo (which is much larger than I originally intended it to be!) is a celtic cross which has personal meaning to me. I got it 8 years ago and I love it as much today as I did then. My criteria for the location was that it couldn't be visible in a wedding or formal dress, business attire, or unless I wanted it to be visible. I don't regret my choice to get "permanently" marked at all. I really put a lot of thought into my decision.
  • Not my thing but other people seem to like them. They seem addictive for some. I rather have henna, mehndi done because it isn't permanent. I love celebrating the moment, having a statement on my body about today or next week and not forever. I want to have a vine growing up my leg this week and maybe next month I'll have a dragon crawling up the other leg. Or I'll try doing the bottoms of my feet with a moon and stars and next time a lotus blossom.
  • I have two~a kitten on my chest and a amatuer one on my back. I love my little kitten,but I regret that one on my back,it is my ex's name.That one is there for life unless I get another to cover it.I won't allow any of my children to get one until they are old enough{17/18} to understand that it is a very huge decision that can't be erased! When my son ~26~ got one,I advised him not to get his girlfriends name,he did anyway but in tribal lettering.I will never allow them to get an amatuer one,too dangerous~I was young and dumb!
  • I have one, a small seal blowing bubbles on my right shoulder, and im thinking of having an angel on my left. Yeah they are fine as long as they dont cover the whole body surface i guess.
  • Here's Private Leonard L. Church and Private Dexter Grif with my response:
  • If they're small and well placed, and "tasteful", I don't mind them, but if they're big or "all over the place" and "trashy looking", I think they're ugly.
  • Well, from a woman's stand-point, I actually have two of them. I got them when I first turned 18 because it was a cool thing to do. I actually put a lot of thought into my tats. I got them small and thought that there may come a day where I wasn't so proud of them. So mine are placed in spots where they can be hidden. For everyone else... what ever floats your boat. Do your thing!
  • If it looks good, it's good to look at it.
  • I have a lot, and plan on getting a lot more. I think as long as people sit down and think about what they want then they are great. The worst thing anyone could do is walk into a shop and pick out some flash on the wall (I did it, I hate it, and will be covering it up soon). But as long as the tattoos are well done, I love em. Love getting them, love having them, love seeing them.
  • I'd give someone a tattoo,but would not get one.
  • I think everyone ought to have to wear the same shirt for a month to see what being stuck with a dated fashion before they get a tattoo. Or they should have to have a removable tattoo just like the permanent one they want for a month before they get the permanent one. It ought to be a law. They'd change their minds about the tattoo in a couple weeks and it would save young people a lot of grief.
  • A rather permanent fashion statement. And since fashion comes and goes in cycles, that kind of locks one into one particular era and makes it hard to stay in fashion with the times, don't you think? If you are going to get a tattoo, I believe you should make your choice and wait a year before coming back to it. If your desire to obtain that tattoo hasn't changed, then maybe you'll not be disappointed later in life.
  • hey, they look cool, if done right. I wouldnt get one im too chicken, but they do look cool.
  • What I've heard is that 24% of people with tattoos are getting them removed ten years later. But go ahead; in today's tight job market, why not give potential employers yet another reason to lose your job application?
  • The female body is the beautiful thing ever created. For any woman to have a "Tramp Stamp" anywhere on their body (big or small) is like putting graffiti on a priceless painting.
  • I love them, as long as they're not too many, because then I think they just make your skin look dirty, also I think they look terrible if they get faded.
