    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

    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 Don't Hate The People, But...

    There are so many people with tattoos that it's refreshing to see someone who DOESN'T have one. Maybe later tattoo-free will be the next big rebellious thing to become. I hate the ones that get it and then are annoyed whenever someone starts a conversation with them about the...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    I stumbled across this experience and found myself drawn to reading the stories. It didn't take long for me to realize that I had stumbled into an area I wasn't looking for. I think that if you choose to dislike tattoos, it's fine with me, everyone is entitled to their own...

    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...

    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...

    I am not completely against them, nor will I ever be. I have two tattoo's right now, one which is the date of my mom's death and the other which is a little sillier but still holds meaning to me. The tattoo's I can't stand are the ones where they get them intentionally to gross...

    They Ruin the Natural Beauty

    I believe tattoos ruin the natural lines of a woman's body.  For some reason, they just turn me off.

    Tattoos Are Tacky

    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...

    Well excuse me but a tattoo is nothing more then a form of self mutilation. It does not make you prettier. On the contrary it makes you more ugly. I know it's really really old and people have been doing it for ages but for me it's a sign of a person with a loose wire in their...
