    No Ink On Me

    I have been thinking of getting a tattoo since I was a teenager.  I just kept thinking that I would always have THIS TATTOO on my body forever.  I couldn't decide what I wanted so I waited.  A couple of years ago I was thinking about getting a tree spirit.  I always thought...

    Not Right Now And Maybe Never...

    I've just never really been one for the whole "inking" thing. Anyway, there is really nothing that I can think of that I would actually WANT to get tattooed on me, especially since it would be permanent. I mean, sure, there is always laser removal, but that's pricey. Maybe the...

    Craving them, though.

    18th birthday, of course. It seems to have become a tradition, now. I'm not sure what I want it to be though. I for sure what a tree on my back and an ouroboros on one of my biceps. Might get a quote from a novel or movie I like somewhere.

    I sit here watching my son get his first tattoo. Thinking about if god wanted us to have tattoos he would have one on us before we were born.... I think they are the nasty things people can get.

    No Tat For Me.

    My sisters both have tattoos but I cannot bring myself to get one. I am too much of a wuss, but on the positive side, being tattoo free is becoming rare and is becoming more unique than those with tattoos. That and my doctor said all tattoos will turn odd colors as the years...

    I remember finding out my ex got a tattoo.

    She then told me it was my name. I thought she was joking. She then showed me and I was honestly impressed. Impressed on how stupid it was. Don't get me wrong, that's sweet and all but we weren't even married; and even if we were married, I still don't think it's a good idea...

    Okay With The Skin I'm In

    When I was a teenager I couldn't wait to get a tattoo! My mother even went to the parlor with me when I was 17. Over the years I kept saying I would get one, I just didn't know where or what. Now that I'm older my feelings have changed. There are so many with tatts in my...

    While I find some tattoos very attractive I

    don't think I could get one myself. I don't think I could handle the needle and my skin looks better without the ink!

    They're Ok For Guys

    I don't want to offend anybody but I can't understand why girls get tattoos. One or two small ones are OK but I like things natural. They're OK for guys but some guys overdo it. Like all those tattoos on Jesse James.

    For Quite A Few Reasons.

    One of the most understandable and overly stated is that i just don't want to have an older physique cover in unrecognizable permanent markings. The fear grows that i would choose the wrong thing that may seem interesting now but could be inappropriate if i get a job or...

    Yokes, who the hell wants ink poisoning?

    And honestly you want that on you saggy skin when you turn old? - Unless you remove it which is painful. There are people who feel in love and get tatties, but then what if the face you once loved is the face you've come to hate AFTER realizing he/ she wasn't THE ONE.

    Not For Me.

    I like some of the tatoos I see, others are more like body graffiti. My kids all have some small tatoo. But I always say a tatoo is like Herpes, it's forever!

    No Permanent Ink

    I am tat-free. But, I've always liked to draw on myself and get fake ones. I never got into the idea of getting a real one. I have eczema, so getting a tattoo wouldn't be wise. I'm not against body art. I'm just way more into piercings. I like the needles more than the ink.

    Do 3 Dots Count?

    I think tattoos can be beautiful art or hideous disfigurement. I never really wanted one for myself. Then I had surgery and needed radiation therapy. They had to tattoo 3 little black dots to use as markers for the radiation beam....only one can be seen...on the right outer...

    I don't care for them - especially on women. To me, whenever I see a gal with tats, all I can think is she's the devil's inked-up baby mama! LOL

    It Just Isn't Me..

    I never saw a tattoo that I wanted on my own body. I was even in the Military, and went with lots of friends to ink parlours, but never saw anything I wanted on my body forever. I have seen it become very fashionable, and seen a lot of gal pals get the lower back tatt, or the...

    For Some Probably Common Reasons.....

    1. I can't decide on anything I want to stay with me for life.2. I am a self confirmed chicken and just plain scared of the pain.3. I don't think I want to disfigure myself in a way that won't be attractive anymore when I am 80+..... hopefully

    I'm in my early 30's

    and managed to remain tattoo-free. I have never wanted one. As humans we are constantly changing. Our interests, beliefs, fantasies, relationships...all in constant flux. The tattoo(s) I chose for myself as a teenager would no longer be relevant in my 20's, tattoos I chose for...

    Never Know

    I don't have any tattoos, not because I have anything against them. I simply haven't found one I thought I must have. I always wanted one. There just hasn't been anything I wouldn't mind having on my body forever.

    Not Yet Anyway

    I still might one day.  I have to find a good enough reason and a design with a decent amount of significance before I decide to go down that road.  After all, it's forever.

    I Would Love One...

    ... but I get bored so easily! I want one with meaning, but have yet to find something that screams at me, something that I will cherish and not get bored with. I am not good with designing one, either. Then there is the question of where on my body to put it. I would love one...

    That's it the whole reason. I don't like them on guys, I like them even less on girls.  And I certainly wouldn't like them on me.
