Nope. I love Hubby with all my heart but he does not need me to deface myself with tattoos/piercings to prove it to him....

Imagine when the Love of your life turns out to be the Rat of the century and you have his/her name nicely inked all over your face or prominent part of your anatomy... Indeed anywhere seems to be a bad idea. How many people would love to get down and funky and find out the object of their desire has somebody else's name tatooed over their butts, genitals, breasts etc ?!?!....


Tatoos and piercings are not for me anyway but names are just plain silly IMO. Whatever floats your boat I suppose...

But that Bentley would probably have a paint job, and not just primer, right?

The fact is, people over the age of about 35 grew up seeing tattoos on bikers, sailors, and criminals.

That's it.

Women who engraved their bodies were looked down on as dayshift hookers, of the skankiest type.

Just like young people today who laugh at older folks who can't work iphones (ageist much?) it's all about what was normal and acceptable in the decade you came to age in.

It will swing around, I warn you now. Those who rushed out and got a Pammy Anderson type barb wire tattoo, are ALREADY out of date, and look kinda silly. Those who rushed out and got celtic tattoos, ditto. Children of the 90s.

Now we have stupid sayings and chinese characters. In 30 years time the wearers of these will be written off as "silly old fools" by the new batch of young'uns who probably wouldn't DREAM of tattoing themselves.

Getting a tattoo is like getting a pair of shoes that you will have to wear for the rest of your life. You can never ever take the shoes off, even though they are wildly unfashionable, irrelevant, worn, ragged, scuffed.

Getting a tattoo is the equivalent of having to wear Crocs for the rest of your life, no matter how much fashion and tastes change.

I received my first tattoo 11 years ago.

I still love it.

My forearm was done 6 years ago.

I still love it.

I plan on finishing up my sleeve and I daresay that I will continue loving the tattoos I have considering they were all custom and have nothing to do with what's 'popular'... for me, birds and flowers won't go out of style

If tattoos aren't your thing, that's fantastic, I would never ever want to force anyone to get one. I truly do love mine and really like having them, so cheers
