I Have No Tattoos

    I feel like SOME people get tattoos

    because it is the cool, hip thing to do. I am just not impressed unless it has some deeper meaning to it. I am not accusing people of only getting tattoos to impress people. I am not against tattoos or put off by them, just the stupid ones. I question sometimes why someone...

    a) I don't like pain b) I don't need to

    permanently mark my body to remember people I love c) I think art looks good in the right frame - and that's not my body d) I remembered that what might look good and fashionable when I'm 20 may look foolish when I'm 80 e) I have close friends with tattoos. I regard them as...

    Ever notice that not having a tattoo nowadays is

    as common as having one used to be? I've never had the desire to have ink blots in my skin that will just look like liver spots when I'm old. And I'm not buying the "it proves how personal and meaningful" something was, because if it's meaningful to me, a tattoo isn't going to...

    No, I do not have any tattoos

    but I am thinking about getting a couple on my body. I wanted a butterfly on my back and a sign on my tummy. I would love my nips pierced too. I believe that package would look so beautiful on my lovely body.

    I am not sure if I will get one

    or not. I have thought about it before, but the pain would make me a bit squeamish, and it would be really hard for me to decide on something that would be permanently on my body. So I would really have to think about ut first.

    Never Had the Desire

    I have never wanted to get a tattoo, and have never really understood why someone would want one.  It's permanent.  If you want to make a statement, why not a temporary tattoo?  Will you really still want that tattoo when you are older? I have a few friends who...

    I've thought of getting one

    but I'm pretty indecisive about designs so I get henna tattoos instead. That way I can switch it up once it fades.

    If you have a symbol

    or picture you want on your body....buy a picture instead. God gave us this beautiful body to not be covered in ink.

    I have no desire to get a tattoo.

    My brother has a tattoo and it looks nice but as long as it is not on me, I'm fine. I can't handle the pain, i can barely stand the pain from a paper cut.

    I don't think that there is anything wrong with

    them. I was married to a woman with one, have dated a couple of women that have them and know a few others that have one or more. For the most part they look really good on people, I just don't really think that they are for me.

    It seems like everybody has

    or wants a tattoo. I don't get it! I don't want to mark up my body. Not even a little. It's just weird to me. I don't even like temporary stuff. As a child, I never wanted to have my face painted or anything, and I refused to wear any Halloween costumes that involved paint...

    but the only permanent one I would consider is having my hubby's name on my back.

    Sometimes I want to have one.

    My concern is not about the pain but being permanent on my skin. I am afraid that I will regret having a tattoo one day as I have things that I have done in the past and regret now.

    I have had those sticker tattoos though,

    but that did not really count. The real one is just too freakishly painful. To poke needles at my skin for Nth times is just too extreme for me.

    Dumb Idea

    Injecting ink into your skin with a needle - what idiot thought that one up? Not for me, thanks. I'm not saying they don't look hot on young women. But most of those women looked hot already!

    I feel like it would be nice

    and always hear about them. I only feel like they will end up being like something regretful and very hard to remove. Also, I don't know where to place it (simply on arms does not seem like a good idea for me).

    I have been with friends to get their tattoos.

    I've looked through the binders but never saw anything I wanted on my body for the rest of my life. The only thing that came close was Donald Duck flipping the bird. Now that I have kids I'm glad I didn't. I'm not against tattoos. I am grateful that I live in a country where...

    The human body is beautiful.

    If you cover it up with tattoos then no one can see it. Why do it?

    I have naturally pale white skin.

    To me, looks like a perfectly complete masterpiece, nothing further needs to be added to the canvas. I prefer it this way, and I don't need to get a tattoo to become a bad boy or something of that nature. I'm mostly good as it is, but even good boys can be a bit naughty without...
