I'm not talking one or two tattoos, but tattoos all over their body. Of course, it is their body. However, I find those people with tattoos all over their arms, legs, body, everywhere very annoying and can't understand why anyone would do that!?

There are several reasons to have tattoos, mainly to express one's individuality, then there is the obvious to me it is their body, their decision what to do with it and their money so who cares and the BIGGEST reason to get tattoos everywhere is to annoy people who think tattoos are annoying.

I can't understand why anyone would be annoyed with people that have a bunch of tattoos. We're in the same boat!

I don't find the person annoying, but I do find the tattoos visually unappealing. I think they really make a person appear trashy.

Or to try gain gain conformity with others in the tattoo community.

Ever notice someone with a tattoo will wear a tank top or t shirt when it is 35F degrees outside?

The ones who think they are funny telling old Henny Youngman jokes all the time, with a real high screechy voice and personal hygiene issues I find annoying.

I was a manager at a McDonalds once and one of our employees got what I thought was an inappropriate tattoo on their forehead. We consulted and agreed that she could alter the tattoo to read "Breath to all customers" with a red sharpie while at the cash register and that would be OK.

I'm never annoyed by the way a person looks. How a person ACTS can be annoying.

I wouldn't say annoying. It puts me off but I think a large part of it is my age (**Boomer alert**) because my daughter (29) has no problem with it. It seems to be a subculture thing. Way back in the 60's and 70's, I and my peers had a different type of subculture that didn't appeal to older folks. Such is life. I know folks who got tattoos who wish they didn't and the permanence is a problem for them.

But, tattoos seem to transcend several different subcultures and lifestyle choices and, to me, it isn't a clear message....if someone thinks they are making a statement I don't know what it is. I worked in and around prisons for twenty years so I also have that baggage regarding tattoos.

People who are annoying are that way due to their behavior - not because of body mods or lack thereof.

Maybe if you got to know them instead of just being annoyed, you could ask them why they have their tattoos. They love talking about them; they are there for you to look at.
