Well. In the case of me and my tattoo's, I like to show them off when people ask to see them. Mine are usually more unique than most around my area.
It's mostly black and grey tribal out here. :/ Or black and grey skulls/death/nakedwomen/tribal/biomech.
My left arm looks like a freaking rainbow. I have dragons, cats in the moon, myself playing a Ps1 sitting on a towel with the galactic code for our planet, ZZ9PluralZAlpha on it. ( Lots of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy references ) flying batbooks, flying angelbooks, a old pocket watch with the hands pointing to 2 and 7 for my 27th birthday and a 3d perspective skeleton key unlocking gears that are wrapped around my forearm.. That's just the forearm. :P
because they are happy to have it too
