    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!

    My Opinion

    Ok. So I'm not into the whole tattoo thing. I mean it looks good on some people (especially hot guys) but I don't thing I could ever get one. I'm scared of a needle jabbing me over and over again and what If it's messed up? I would have to live with it for the rest of my life. I...

    What Can I Say

    I have shared a story in I have a tattoo. I have a lot of scars, no tattoos, but my scars have stories. To me they are reminders of different times. Like I have tattooed my life on me.

    I think tattoos are too permanent.

    What if I get something that I love at this very moment but hate it years later? I admit I'm indecisive but I am an ever evolving being. My mind is constantly changing. I don't need a visual representation of a thought on my body. Thanks but no thanks. I do have piercings though...

    Would Like a Tattoo But . . .

    I have dreamed on and off about having a tattoo and it would be something colorful and it would be on my back since it's one of the body parts that changes the least as you age (I'm talking skin shrinkage or stretching here), but something usually stops me, be it lack of...

    None At All

    I have no tattoos, even though they became very popular among my peers at my university in the early 90s. Two reasons I will never get one: I hate needles and I have OCD. I will tolerate needles as a necessary evil for medical purposes, but the thought of sitting in a chair...

    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...

    No Tattoo B/c..

    My mind cannot overcome my fear of needles to get one. It is just too scary. Odd because I am not scared of flying, being on the water, or natural disasters, but tattoos = me feeling faint. Oh well I will have to be unique and strong in my own way.

    I like asking people

    why they got certain tattoos and their story behind it all. And for a long time, I thought that I wanted some too, but I've grown to love the the simple look of my skin. To me, the scars I've collected over the years are my very own tattoos. They chose me.

    This will change. I just have to find the right one. I have a collection of butterfly tattoos, and none of them are the right one, but some are very close. And then I'll have it, on the back of my right shoulder, four or five inches across.

    The Only Mark On My Skin Is Caused By Your Suction Kiss

    Kind Of Scared

    I've always wanted a tattoo but it's FOREVER. I even had someone offer to pay the entire price for me but in the end, I couldn't bring myself to get it. As much as I like tattoos, I also like the idea of pure skin. Not going to get one any time soon.

    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.
