    But I Have 4

    I got them all when I was under 18. I hate having them. Luckily they are all on my midsection and very upper thigh and hidden in clothes. Most of the time I don't even temember they are there. Every once and a while my shirt slips up and my lowrise jeans don't cover the stomach...

    On Me.

    I made the mistake years ago of getting a tattoo. Was drunk and, well it happened. Wanted it gone the next day really, but it was too late. I dislike tattoos on me. Others can do with their body as they please. Some I see are nice, some gross (especially then colocated with...

    That Looks Like A...

    So people pay money to have their skin permanently marked, endure pain... so that in a few years someone can say "thats a tattoo of what?"  There are a lot of bad tattoos, and once you have it, there's not much you can do about it.  One of the worse was on a...

    I Don't Think

    they are for me... and sometimes I am repulsed by them on women... but sometimes they are so damn hot. This must be a classic love/hate feeling.

    I just prefer skin the way it is.

    That is my own personal opinion. I would date someone, and have with tattoos but I just enjoy skin without any.

    The Indisposable Canvas

    It's said that tattoos are a way of expressing oneself, but why express yourself in that particular way? It can be painful, it's painful to remove (and even then I've been told the methods are not that effective), and oftentimes the art is covered up by clothing anyway so to whom...

    Sometimes It Sucks...

    I was taken advantage of at 13 by someone with a tattoo, and I have associated them with that, and with bad, for the past 3 or 4 years... The process, the look, the feel of them, the kind of personality it has made me associate with them, I just gag a little bit when I see one...

    One Big Circle

    I'm very anti - tattoo, mostly because it seems like a daft thing to get. You are in pain when they put it on, people then may laugh at you if it's been done wrong by the man, then it hurts to have it removed. One very big and painful circle. Not something I want to get involved...
