From an anatomical perspective, the mid to lower back is one of the choicest areas to get a tattoo. There are some women who get it because it makes them feel sexy, but for the most part it seems to be an aesthetically pleasing place to put a tattoo. For the record, I don't have one so I really have no pony in this race.

Oh..forgot this was C-D...

LOL TATTOOS ARE FOR HOES.

My mind wanders sometimes and its nice to have something to read.

I don't find them attractive. As for me, I have no holes or marks I wasn't born with.

I've been in two long-term relationships since getting them. Neither guy had any tattoos. One never would, didn't care for them, but said he didn't care about mine one way or the other. The other has been in the military for a dozen years, has never gotten one, and is considering getting his first. He's not really "the type," either. I didn't get mine to impress guys, I got them because I like them.

I think it's very sexy that you are a nerdy bookish teacher and have those tats. The images in my mind now.

"Tramp Stamp" aka: "Stripper Bar Code" I don't care what they say. Forty to 50 years from now I'll bet some of them are hanging down on their floppy buns.

In 40-50 years I'll have far more to worry about than what my tattoos look like. If you're still that concerned with what you look like and are still judging others for what they look like then you have much bigger issues than a sagging tattoo.

Before the whole tramp stamp trend, many years ago in the late 1990's I saw a guy on the beach with one. Back then, not many people had tramp stamps, but here was this guy who had it. Bet he regrets it now.

I like a nice tattoo but I do not like the trend of "I've got a tattoo! LOOK!"

Personally I think one can do what they like with their own bodies without being judged, BUT I was at my friends house the other day looking at her beautiful, stunning, model 19 year old daughters back, which I was horrified to discover was a humungous, ugly, black and red monstrosity from her shoulders right down to her azz.

She was very defensive about it as a 19 year old would be "I like it!" but she has broken up with that particular boyfriend, stopped taking those particular drugs, and now essentially regrets the hell out of never being able to wear a bikini or a strapless top again.

At age 19.

Most girls raised to be ladies are not going to wind up with tats anywhere, much less large visible tramp stamps. Just as women can dress like a **** to attract a certain type of attention, so too do women get permanent tats for the same reason. Try looking at strippers and porn stars these days and all you will see are tats, pierced tongues etc. I imagine street walkers also have them, but I wouldn't know.

These certainly are not Amish, Mormon or other religious or properly raised women.
Hah! I guess I'll tell my pastor I'm not religious. I wonder if she'll still want me to teach Vacation Bible School tonight, despite the shamrock and claddagh I've had on my back for a decade? I'm guessing yes...the school at which I teach profoundly disabled children seems to also not be too concerned that the presence of ink on me clearly brands me as a prostitute, and I'm pretty sure I won't have to turn in the state press association writing awards I won while on the job as a (tattooed) newspaper reporter and editor. As far as being "a lady," I suppose you'd have to ask my Naval officer SO, but he seems to think so.

LOL! Honey, at my age it's way to late to care.
