I just personally think they are nasty and I am repulsed by them. It's hard to pretend you like something that grosses you out.

I did not say that YOU were judgmental towards respectable people with tattoos, I was suggesting that some people really are. I have know a couple of them.

Although this does suggest some degree of judgmentalism. I have heard this reteric before.

I beg to differ on this one. I have read your posts before. You definitely are an old school country girl, no offense, that's just the way I see it.

That is true. Many country people have tattoos, many of which are conservative. Now you have to understand, I was making a big generalization. There will always be exceptions to the rule, but I usually find the judgmental people of the more conservative and older demographic. What this means is that I still think that your tattoos are more of a big deal (behind your back) than they would be in Seattle, SF or NYC. Also, despite your personal experiences to the contrary, seniors in general tend to be the more judgmental type, at least that is what I have seen. I am happy that you met older, more conservative people that appreciated your tattoos, but do not expect that to be the case everywhere.

That is why people should put time and effort into the design that they want. From there, think about all the outcomes that can come from getting a tattoo and the design that's been chosen.

Ahhh after all the banter here on this thread we have ascertained what all of us pretty much knew to begin with;
Some people like tattoo's.
Some people don't like tattoo's.

A huge congratulation's on all your efforts.

Are you saying that people who are conservative politically are more judgmental of tattoos?

I live in a fairly liberal area...I think older people of any political view tend to view them less favorably.

I don't like them. I doubt I'll ever get one. But I have plenty of friends with tattoos and I've dated guys with tattoos. I just don't like them for myself.

I'm indifferent to tattos in general. I do appreciate the very good ones. The only time I find them less than Ideal is if it is a very beautiful woman or the Tats that poorly done.
