No, that wasn't the ironic part. The irony is that one would assume that women who are "comfortable in their own skin" would be *more* likely to get tattooed than women who were worried about how other people perceive them.

I like the Austin Powers reference, though.

I'm sure that people with tattoos think that the tattoos are beautiful, interesting, tasteful, classy and all the rest, but that segment of the population has typical characteristics which most other people simply do not find appealing. I usually do not find that I have enough in common with people who have tattoos to actually befriend one.
Wow... What a terrible attitude towards others... But you're obviously entitled to your opinions.

However, I'm not a commercial pilot, I'm a hobby pilot that flies for fun. My clients have no problem inviting me to personal events. Perhaps some consider me 'the help', but those are not the type of people I want to associate with anyway. People that consider others 'beneath them' because of the job they do are so much worse than those who simply have tattoos. I can cover my tattoos up... Bad attitudes are a bit harder to hide.

I wont think she's trash, but that tat would definitely not look good. Thats just what happens when a 20 something gets a tat - in 30 years it wont look as good. Now, take a 50 year old granny who wants to get a boob a tat, then yeah, that is someone who I would say is not Hilary Clinton or Nancy Pelosi but would more than likely be more like a Rock Of Love reject.

I have a lot of dude friends with tats and they all get them because they want to give a certain impression to others about who/what they are. The martial artist/mma fighters get chinese dragons and chinese writing because they want to show people that they are bada$$es. The gangster types get them becuase they want to show their gang affiliation and how tough they are by getting tats on their necks. The "artsy" dudes who take photos of hot chicks and rock concerts get them to show "hey, Im an artist and Im a bada$$". The Skank ho chicks get the mark of the hoar (sp) on their lower backs because they want the guys who are banging them doggy to see "art" and think they are "cool".

Im not saying ALL people who get tats are this way, but a great majority of them ARE. Its okay. Pixie is hot. Ive seen other chicks with full sleeves who are hot. The bellydance/yoga chicks I know with their thousand dollar tats are HOT and Im okay with that. But when you get chicks wanting to get their boobs tatted then that is a completely different type of person.

I think these are kinda cool looking.

But I'd have to be a stripper to have them.

OK. If that makes sense to you, who am I to argue.

Stereotypes are based on widely perceived truths, I'll certainly not argue with you there. However, like nearly all stereotypes, they are wrong nearly as often as they are right.

P.S. I'm in the process of getting a 3/4 sleeve tattoo completed. I'm the farthest thing from a badass, gangster, artist or MMA fighter that there is. I'm getting it because *I* like it, not for anyone else or for any other reasons.

I don't like them and I think they are the ultimate of tackiness. IMO, very few things instantly downgrade a woman more than tattoos, especially on such a beautiful part of the female anatomy as the breasts.

Oh, misogyny. When a man gets tattoos, he's a bad boy, he's cool and he's interesting. When a woman gets tattoos, she's trashy, uneducated, and hideous.

You could probably replace 'tat' with:
Hair cut
teeth whitening
ear piercing


so what point are you trying to make?

My point is quite clear, you just missed it. Try going back and reading my posts again in their entirety, but this time, read slowly for better comprehension.
