While I know some of you do not think tattoos are the best idea, I see no reason for you to degrade people who have them. I have them and I am not trashy nor are my tattoos. I am not low class. I do not have hepatitis. I know physicians with tattoos as well as other very white collar professionals.

I have nothing against anyone here, but I think it is very judgmental of those looking down their noses upon people with tattoos and speaks volumes about who you are.

I would recommend something that holds special meaning to you and to avoid trendy tattoos that are common such as the tribal or barbed wire style designs that have little to no personal meaning to you.

Agreed

I try to avoid threads like this because as a fairly heavily tattooed person I try to keep things as positive as possible.

Regardless, to the OP I say spend some time talking to some artists, looking at portfolios and really delving into the imagery that you enjoy and can see on your body for life. A good artist will be able to draw something incredibly unique for you that you both can be proud of. All of my tattoos are original pieces of art that were drawn specifically for me and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Sorry have to agree with the ick factor here. Think long and hard as it could interfere with your professional life some day.

I have a reasonable pain tolerance, but it's more the design i'm worried about not it hurting.

What style would look good?



that's not me, but i'd like something similar to that.
Design? Style?
That tattoo will be a part of you for the rest of your life. I would only get a tattoo of something I'm really passionate about, something incredibly meaningful to me.
Do you feel passionate abut tribal tattoos? What do they mean to you? Probably nothing.

Not to mention how low class tattoos are. Get smart and don't do it.
low class that people of varying socio-economic levels get them?

seems you're envious that the youth in your era didn't do them, eh?

er... get with the real world.

many people of varying professions/classes have tattoos.

you know, saying tattoos are "bad" is what people long ago used to think. morals and values change, right? lol..

That isn't even the issue. I am quite sure you and I were not born in the same era. I would never tell an older person to rot and I would not call them names. I just turned forty a couple of weeks ago, so maybe I am an old fogy as well!

I got my first tattoo when I was around 35 or so.

People have their opinions, and that is how it will always be. They do not need to think they are better than someone or that someone is trashy because they are not like them.

If I never said I had a tattoo or never showed it to them, they would have no idea and would not judge me as someone who had a tattoo and called me trashy and low class. You know why? Because I am not. I am a good person who is far from those things.

What would keep me from ever getting one is I'd be afraid I wouldn't like it, or I'd get sick of it. How would you like to choose a shirt that you had to wear everyday for the rest of your life? I couldn't do it.
