They really just become part of you.

That looks like something that everybody else has. If you can handle it being on your body for your whole life though, then go for it.

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.
er.. yes. I know that. But then stereotyping who have tattoos based on some outmoded value system is not on IMO.

Something to keep in mind is that most professional work places don't allow visible tattoos so be prepared to wear long sleeve shirts all the time unless you work someplace that has no such restrictions.
