    I Miss the Pre-Tattoo Era

    I might be older than some of you here. I'm in my early 40s. I have fond memories of when nobody had tattoos except for bikers, sailors, and criminals. I constantly think back to how nice it was in the 1970s and 80s when the women were pretty and non-tattooed. I took...

    Deeply Repulsed

    I am an extremely open minded person except when it comes to tattoos and piercings, In that regards I am a real judgmental, close-minded zealot. I am now on the verge of losing my best friend because he wants a tattoo and I, being a Nazi in that regards told him to get one but...

    Tattoos On Women Are The Biggest Turnoff To Me

    Tattoos Are...disgusting.

    It's so hard to find an honest person who empathizes with me. The tiniest trace of permanent ink on someone's body makes me cringe. It's even worse seeing them on the obese. With me, there is absolutely no exception when it comes to tattoos (save religious reasons.) I will hate...

    I'm in a wonderful relationship with a beautiful girl.  Her and I have really officially been a couple for several months but we've known each other as fairly close friends for nearly 6 years.  I went into this knowing that she will gradually cover her entire body with...

    Tattoos On Women Are Such a Turn Off!

    I can't believe the garbage that I see going on today. I blame the liberal/feminist movement for all of the screwed up generation X ers I hear about on a daily basis. Here are my complaints in order: 1).  Affirmative action does the most damage to our country's...

    I don't hate all tattoos,

    some people really do suit them and they look great! However, I am very against women with tattoos( a little sexist I know), I think they look trashy and not elegant on females. Women with tattoos look as though they're trying to be men rather than what they are. Perhaps it's...

    Tattoo Fears

    OK, I'm not afraid of tattoos, but I have afraid of how you get them. See, my mom has two tattoos and my father has one. Almost everyone I know has a tattoo, except me. And to be honest, I have no problem with that at all. When my mom went to get her second tattoo (a Winni The...

    Tattooed Bufferillas Make My Life Hell

    Right. Let's clarify this once

    and for all. I love some tattoos and hate others. I love.. the concept of tattoos. I love artistic and unique tattoos. Those dazzlingly intricate ones. I love tattoos that have meaning. To commemorate an event or loved one. Or as in my case, for spirituality. Sadly nowadays, I...

    A tattoo is a sign of individuality

    or creativity? That's a joke. In Back to the Future II, in 2015, we are all supposed to wear our pants inside out because it is the 'look.' If I did that in public (and would be the only one to do so) I would be called a psycho and shunned or mocked. Sure, I would be an...

    You Can't Redecorate Your Body Once Permanently Decorated.

    I don't find tattoos attractive on a woman at all. Rather it seems a violation of their natural beauty. I have none because I can't imagine any image I'd want tattooed on my body FOREVER. Ever see an old skin sagging man or woman with tattoos? NOT a  pretty sight. I...

    Tattoos Are Tacky

    Why Tattoos Are Dirty

    When I was at school we had to use fountain pens instead of ballpoints, to learn good handwriting. So, of course, our fingers got dirty with ink. So we cleaned our hands by scrubbing off the ink. Now, we have tattoo artists who force ink under the skin so it can never be washed...

    Tats Are Ugly.

    They are a mark of the devil. They make people look like trash. Especially women with tats are ugly. Its a waste of money and just think every dime someone spends on tats they could have a new car or house or kids food or even a new boob job besides the tats

    Why? I have found it is because teenage girls are of the OPINION (mistakenly) that tattoos are "pretty," "cute," "meaningful," "powerful," "hot," or "sexy!"Well, in my opinion it is barbaric form of self torture, thoughtless selfishness, and a pagan practice that I know some...

    Thing is, i like skin.

    I feel ink ruins it. Ruins the natural beauty. I'll never get a tattoo. Hopefully i find a girl that's the same. Probably won't, but whatever. Least my skin will be beautiful lol.

    Useless Stuff

    I hate them and I would never go deep in a relationship with someone who have them, I cant even pronounce the word, it sounds evil for me and I have a husband with one, he would have to remove that, if he wanted to get a family with me.
