Recently I have seen alot of young women at the beach who look all quite normal from the neck up but have just tons of tattoos all over their body. These are women who seem to be professional white collar women but hidden behind the clothes are as many as 10 large tattoos.

I wonder if they will feel attractive 15 years from now when tattoos are out of style and they have matured?

I think tatoos, if placed properly and planned well (as well as executed well) can be beautiful. Many of the modern pinup girls have them, including Sabina Kelly who has a thriving career. She always looks glamorous and feminine. Placement is key, however:

I'm very proud of you, Refugee, for getting out of the house to take a break from stalking your beautiful neighbor.

I don't have any tats, but there are some I have seen that are placed right and are tasteful. Some people can carry them off - some can't. I couldn't.

Tattoos might look good when you're young, but when you get older and everything starts to sag, you'll probably regret them.

Yeah, a lot of things work really well when you're young...but you grow up and then, maybe, not so much so! People with tats remind me of graffiti taggers looking at a blank wall and feeling the urge to put their mark on it....just a different wall...using their body instead. No matter what you do, skin continues to age and what looks good on young skin changes as the wearer gets older. Most regret it, but it's too late and tat removal is expensive! Personally, I think tats look horible no matter who they're on...male, female, young, or old. And don't get me started on piercings!!!

I have a tatt and due to health issues that make me overweight, my skin is already saggy at 20! But I love my tattoo and it's MINE, I could care less what others think of it. It's in a "tramp stamp" position (only because that's where on my body this particular image would jive the best) so no one sees it except lovers, at the beach, or if I'm touching my toes. :P

I plan on getting more on my back. Personally, I'm not a fan of sleeves on girls and I want my tattoos to all be easily coverable. The images I plan all have strong symbolism to me and I could care less what other people think- they don't see them on a daily basis and they have no idea anyway what my motivations were for getting them.

I've seen some great tattoos and some crappy ones. I guess as long as they make the owner happy....all is well. I don't think once this particular generation gets older that tats which don't do well as skin sags a bit will be that big of a deal since so many people their age will be in the same boat.

Default Tattoos are so lame!

Why would anyone want to put their body through pain? Tattoos are such a waste of money, time and just stupid! Here in WA State every time I turn around, I see someone with a tat and body piercings- eyebrow, lip, tounge and the worst- nose. Get a life people! No one wants to see your gross rings. Take them out!!! I don't want to look at your nasty tounge!! Idiot!!

They may feel beautiful, but they look like sh*t.

Non tattooed people really like to get worked up about those who have tattoos.....not sure why anyone cares so much about what someone else does to their body.
There are lots of things I see every day that people do to their bodies that I would prefer not to see....and it has nothing to do with tattoos or piercings!
