    Tattoos: Yay or nay?

    In terms of tattoos and people getting them, how do you view them today?

    I remember growing up and not really seeing them on many people but today, it seems like everyone and their grandma are getting them. No joke either, my mother's older friend who is in her 70's has 3 and she got them within the last 5 years.

    I feel like they are so mainstream now that they lost the "edge" of doing something to be different. I have a few myself but because of my own ideas and design options (I drew them myself), I look like I am part of the trend. You know, small simple all-black designs. I wanted to get another one but part of me is losing more and more interest in actually going through with it.

    Thoughts?

    Never understood them, they just seem pointless.

    You get dickheads with random Chinese/Japanese symbols that are supposed to mean things like "hope" or "luck" but may well just be something like "wallpaper paste". It's all complete and utter, absolute fucking bollocks.

And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"

    I noticed there are a lot of people who just pick something off the wall. I never understood that. I wouldn't get something I didn't design myself inked onto me. It is permanent after all. Even with laser removal, you still are left with a scar.

    "Hey, like my new tattoo?"

    "Yeah, sweet! What does it mean?"

    "Beef chow mein."

    Hmmmm...i don't mind them on other people but I won't be getting any myself. The only negative in my opinion is people aggressively telling me about their tattoos, but being fake polite and waiting for me to ask. It's pretty annoying when someone shows one to me and then waits for me to ask what it means. I've taken on a policy of never asking, so we usually get caught in this 10+ seconds of awkward silence. My sister has one, but I already know she's gonna be a wreck in 1-2 years so maybe it'll help with the insufferable college girl image. Again, no problem with people just having tattoos and not being a tool about it.

    My younger cousin started getting tattoos soon as she turned 18. I lost count of how many she has and she is 22. She always complains about money and not having enough for bills yet I am fairly certain she spent at least 3 grand on tattoos alone over the years. This is something I have an issue with when it comes to them. People prioritize their money for getting them over being a responsible adult. I don't know what it is like for this age group anymore but when I was 18 to 22, I wouldn't spend outside my means. I didn't like owing people money and didn't like the idea of wasting it either.

    I hope your sister didn't pick something off a wall. I try to at least steer people away from that in my family.

    I like tattoos that are functional, like scar-disguising tattoos.

    Eh, not a huge fan of the tiger, but it certainly looks better.

    Doesn't that defeat the purpose?
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    There are more places offering nipple tattoos for breast cancer survivors. I think that is a wonderful thing. This kind of tattoo work is something I can appreciate on multiple levels. The act of just getting it done for the heck of it because it is cool/trendy and not putting any thought into it, that puts me off.

    Teaching them to fear the living crap out of you? lol

    No judgment here but that is being a bit harsh. Just teach them about the regrets that come with tattoos, the chemical and infection risks, and tell them it is not cheap to remove... Plus it is very painful.
