I must be contrary on this point, personally I am neutral towards body art. If the person is attractive, what he or she inks on their skin is very much besides the point to me.

I love tattoos and have a few myself. They are not overbearing or anything but I think if I saw a girl without a tattoo I'd be ok with it, but a girl with a tattoo attracts me more...depending on what and where of course.

I am actually also attracted to people with tattoos, however my bf does not have any of his own and doesn't care much for them.

I can't see him with any tattoos, wouldn't fit his personality or who he is.

It's funny because I have a full sleeve and I think lower back tattoos are tacky. I also think tattoos on women's legs (unless it's up on the side of the thigh) are tacky.

So, even heavily tattooed people can have opinions about tattoos

I have tattoos, but usually don't find them attractive on women I date. It just depends on what and location of the tattoo(s).

Some tattoos are cool, but many tattoos people are getting now are just stupid. Just my opinion.

Other than my dating preference, I could care less what others do with their bodies.

Ah, tattoos. I have found some to be beautiful, true art. However, I have seen more terrible, horrible, awful tattoos than beautiful. I do not have any, because who I am today is not who I will be in 3 years, let alone 40. I don't want to be stuck with something permanently that may eventually hold no meaning for me. I work with a beautiful, young twenty something female who has a key hole inside a heart on her wrist. Unfortunately, it looks like a *ock, not a keyhole. She hates it, and should.

Tattoos are going to attract attention, you're okay with positive attention but not the negative? I don't think it works like that. People are going to comment on anything that's different, whether it's your hairstyle, the way you dress, whatever. I've always thought it a little odd that people go out of their way to be a bit different (which is a good thing IMO) but then they seem put out if some people don't like it.

I have a number of tattoos and piercings. I have never had anyone say anything negative to me about them, but have had many people complement me on some of them. Yes, I realize when I am elderly that it might look silly, but I knew that when I got them. I am ok with that. The way I look at it, it is my body and as long as I am not hurting someone it is my business and my choice.

I think it depends on how the negativity is shown. I understand not everyone is going to like tattoos and some will judge me negatively for having them, but that's no reason to be a dick about it.

If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all
