Tattoos Are A Beautiful

I don't know if people have a strong opinion when it comes to tattoos, I think most people don't care what grown adults do with their body. I have 3 tattoos and love them all and I got my tattoos for me and I don't care what other people think.The people who look down or say bad things about people with tattoos are just ignorant and don't know anything about tattoos or the reason why people get tattooed. I feel a lot of the people who rag on people with tattoos are just too scared to get one themselves so they make up BS and try to tell people not to get them or say ignorant things like "think about when you're 80 how the tattoo will look" like the person with the tattoos doesn't already know one day they will be old with tattoos and they will not look the same but that shouldn't make a difference. Everyone gets old, I'll just get old with artwork on my body and I'm fine with that. I just think it's funny how ignorant people are and really think that the person tattooed doesn't know they will be old with tattoos. Also most people who get tattooed put a lot of thought into what they wanted to get and knew what they wanted and tattoos are for life and everyone with tattoos knows that.

Tattoos represent art to me and I get them because I want to and I just love tattoos. Also some people believe tattoos have to have some kind of special meaning when in reality they don't, the only reason people think that is because of tattoo shows on TV which is mostly drama and very little is fact on those shows even though I watch them. Tattoos don't make you a certain way, it's the person you are who makes you. So I look at tattoos as a form of art and self expression and people get them for many reasons and people without tattoos shouldn't worry about people with tattoos because we don't care that you don't have any. I think everyone should mind their own business and let grown adults do what they want to do and stop judging and being ignorant about tattoos and the people who have them. As I said I think most people don't care or at least actually understand why people get tattoos but it's the ignorant people who don't know anything about tattoos but try to judge someone when they themselves don't have any that get people upset.

I wish I could enjoy tattoos but sadly, one of my earliest childhood memories is seeing a woman with blue numbers tattooed on her left forearm. When I asked my mother about them, she told me the truth and since that day I have had an aversion to them.

I love tattoos!!

Please, get all the tattoos you want, just don't handle my food or get too close to me, I don't say this for any other reason other than the rarely spoken of side affects of tattooes and the risks they pose, not only to the wearer, but all those who may come in contact with them.

You wouldn't associate with a drug addict because of the risks to your own health, yet people with tattoos think they're different.

The inks used in tattoos were never meant to be injected into the skin, they are industrial inks designed for use in a printing machine, no where on this earth will you find any approval by any health authority for the use of these inks on the skin, let alone to be injected into it, and there is good reason for this.

Those inks are toxic, they are full of all kinds of carcinogens, and speaking of health, long term, those inks will cause cancer, liver damage, if you don't get HIV, AIDS, hepatitis, herpes or any number of other infections in the first instance.

Everyone looks down on junkies for sticking needles in themselves, but hardly anyone relates the same risks to being tattooed.

You said it perfectly :) I love my tattoos and if anyone thinks I'm a lesser person because of them then they aren't worth my time!

You said, and you are correct, I am not worth the little time you have left. I wish you well with the cancer or the liver damage that will bring about your final demise. Don't let it get you down, it's too late to do anything about it now, just think yourself lucky you didn't get HIV, AIDS, hepatitis, herpes or any number of other infections in the first instance. Yes sir, Tattoos are a great idea, NOT!

And I'm sorry about your mental illness... it must be tough to deal with hating something so beautiful..... go bother somebody who deserves your negativity....

I totally agree. If someone I don't know has a problem with something I did to MY body, they can kindly look the other direction. The problem is, they stare and judge and generalize that anyone who has a tattoo is a convict, drug dealer or criminal. Cracks me up. As for me, I will continue doing what I want with my body.

You are correct, we do stare, we look at people who wouldn't scribble on their car, their home, their clothing or anything else they wanted to look good, but these same people who all suffer low self esteem, who crave attention, all self mutilate thinking it will make them stand out as some kind of rebel or free spirit, and then say they don't care what people think, yet it's fact, all those who have tattoos, got them for show, which demonstrates clearly, they really do care what others think.

Sorry, but my words are the truth of your sad deluded life.

Wow I'm so sorry you are such a hateful person... shame on your parents for not teaching you respect for other human beings and other people's way of life. You should be ashamed of who you are. 1) Get over yourself 2) Your way of living is not the only way to live, nor the only correct way, in face there is no correct way 3) Why not spread positive things around instead of negative? You really need some help. Counseling is a great way to get out that negative energy. Try seeing a therapist. That or just get off of this peaceful website.

Hmmmm? So in your opinion, my genuine efforts, which are to do no more than warn the easily influenced youth of today, those who are still innocent and far too inexperienced to understand the complete set of consequences of having industrial inks, full of carcinogens, acids, plastic, and mercury, not to mention having to live with the stigma attached to what will be a permanent disfigurement, which will cause them so much regret as they age, which were introduced to the western world by drunken sailors, and their ******, then adopted by prison inmates as a sign of ownership, now worn by criminals and drug addicts, all people with extremely low self esteem. I can understand your fears of what I'm trying to reveal, given that it's too late for you to reverse your permanent mistake, because you know you also face the risks of HIV, AIDS, hepatitis, herpes or any number of other infections in the first instance, and in the long term, the destruction of your liver, that's if the cancer doesn't claim you first. All that for a silly moment of your ignorance in your youth, it really doesn't seem worth the risks to me, and I'm sure, any other rational person who values their health. My apologies for telling the truth.

What you've just said...
..is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
At no point in your rambling, incoherent response...
..were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought.
Everyone on this site is now dumber for having read it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

To you equally, I offer the very same. Hmmmm? So in your opinion, my genuine efforts, which are to do no more than warn the easily influenced youth of today, those who are still innocent and far too inexperienced to understand the complete set of consequences of having industrial inks, full of carcinogens, acids, plastic, and mercury, not to mention having to live with the stigma attached to what will be a permanent disfigurement, which will cause them so much regret as they age, which were introduced to the western world by drunken sailors, and their ******, then adopted by prison inmates as a sign of ownership, now worn by criminals and drug addicts, all people with extremely low self esteem.

All that for a silly moment of your ignorance in your youth, it really doesn't seem worth the risks to me, and I'm sure, any other rational person who values their health.

Have a nice day.
