    Used To Want One

    But I have changed so much in my life that I can't imagine having something permanent on my body. Also, after going to Vegas last year and hanging out at the pool I realized that so many people have them these days that you are more unique by not having one. Not going to follow...

    My Reasoning

    I simply find it unattractive? I am a heterosexual man, and under no circumstances could ever be attracted to another man. Does that make me intolerant? Or, say I met what I assumed to be a woman, and then discovered that she had a penis, would I be a hateful person if I wasn't...

    I once thought it might be fun to get a cute

    tattoo but I really don't want anything permanent on my body. As I get older it might fade or stretch and change and I just don't think it would look good. Besides, I think skin looks better tattoo free personally. Besides, I'm not sure I'd enjoy the needle! So no tattoos for me...

    I Don't Like Them...

    I don't like tattoos. For myself, anyway. I don't care what other people do. I find them unattractive, as they mar the natural flawless look of skin (that's how I perceive it). However, despite the fact that I don't like them, nearly everyone I've been attracted to in my life...

    I can't think of anything in the world I want

    on my body for the rest of my life. Tattoos look dirty and unprofessional to me. I can't take anybody serious when the have both arms covered in bullshit. People always say "well it means something to me!" I'm like if you have to have it tattooed on your body to remember its not...

    I did for a while, but then my sisters got

    theirs. "We should get sister tattoos!" they said. I think we're a little old to try "matching." Besides, I don't feel any kind of bond with them. I don't think they really feel as close as they insist we all are. They're religious, so their tattoos include Bible verses. One of...

    Not Mine

    My grandfather has The Lady Fatima tattoo at the back of his shoulder, 5-7cm. My father has a sign of the cross tattooed to his upper arm.  While I can't understand why they have to make a mark ( I never tried to ask ) I was brought up to believe that women in my clan don't...

    Don't Like the Look

    I don't like the look of ink on the skin. I prefer things to look as natural as possible. I also think it's over-done and wouldn't want something put permanently on my skin that I'd regret.

    Use to Want One

    I used to want a tattoo. I was 19 at the time and Tattoo Charlie's was right around the corner from where I lived. I went in one day with the intention of getting one and Charlie asked me how old I was. When I told him he said to come back when I was 21. He really did me a favor...

    I Am Attracted to Skin

    Skin. Amazing. There is so much you can say about it. Imagine sex without skin. It stretches and it shrinks. Largest organ. It keeps all the bad stuff out and all the good stuff in. Just think of a baby with a tattoo, and you will know how I feel about tattoos. Indeed we should...

    I personally don't see the appeal

    More Permanent Than Marriage.

    I've never found an image I'd want permanently on my body although I considered it as a teen. Besides, I simply don't find them attractive. Thank God I was able to divorce my ex and that she wasn't a permanent reminder of my bad judgement as the cat's *** in the picture above...

    No!

    I have never wanted a tattoo and I never will!  I have a strong aversion to tattoos.  I don't mind people with tattoos, but I don't think they make you look 'cool'.
