I Dont see the appeal of having a tattoo that can't be remove with spending a lot of money and pain. They are really experience and make you look out of place. I'm like the only few people at 31 that has never gotten one. Does anyone have this feeling too? Girls are surprise that I Dont have one.

I wouldn't personally ever get any, but I can understand why people get them. It shouldn't be weird not having any, so I'm not sure why they would be surprised.

probably not, but you already knew that answer, so why ask the question? You can ask the same question about anything people like, do or want.

It depends. I don't like huge tattoos but small ones are fine, especially if they hold meaning to the person. My sister has a tattoo to remember our dad by, and that's fine.

I'm going to get a tattoo at some point, but it's going to be small, placed somewhere that it can be hidden if necessary, and it has to hold a meaning for me.

I made mine (which actually hold some meaning to me) when it wasn't "hip" to do them but now seems everybody "must" have some which I frankly find weird.

I'm 32 and don't have any tattoos. They are silly and kiddy-like (in the meaning that kids would write on walls or their body).

 

Besides, I'm fair-skinned even at 32 and would look very funny.

agreed. megan fox has too much bad hanwriting on her body. period.

 

and i tell you one thing about americans or europeans who like having chinese character tattooed on their bodies -

 

- almost all the handwriting are very bad. so very bad. it's laughable.

 

- some are so literally translated from english or other languages, "lost in translation" has nothing on them. reminds me of an ads i saw in taiwan sometime back where a causasian was so happy to show off his new chinese tattoos, not realising it was in fact the name of a <edit: not a cold oilment. but something worse ...>

I dont have any tattoos, but at some point I would like to get one. But they're expensive and I need to decide on a motive I really want, and if I'm going to get a tattoo it's going to be fairly big, like should/upper arm, patchwork tattoos that don't match and fit together don't make any sense, if you're going to out art on your body, make it worth it.

Face, hand and neck tattoos that can't bee a silky covered with a shirt or something don't make any sense though. Or people who are covered in them.

The tattoo only needs to mean something and look good to the person that has it though...

I'm sure your not the only one, but then that's the beauty of the human race, different opinions and different choices.

The sleeve trend thats going about at the minute is going to be hilarious when it goes out of fashion... pretty much everyone i know is getting them. There is no real identity, no real reason.. just loads of randomness smushed together to cover the arms.

I've got a couple that mean something to me.  Nothing big, easily hidden under a t-shirt.  Plenty of people find them odd, but I don't care, I'm not them.

Personally, I have no desire for them, but whatever floats anyone's boat.

 

I do have to say one thing, I don't like people treating their tattoos as art, I mean what does that make you, just a canvas pretty much. Kudos to tattoo artists and people who come up with their own designs (a friend of mine is a great one), but taking pride in lettings someone else do their work on your body is something I never quite understood.

 

Other than that, face tattoos give me cringebumps, as well as band tattoos. I mean, I understand tattoos themselves represent your state of mind at the particular moment you got them, but imagine all the kids walking around with Lostprophet tattoos or Ian Watkins' face right now, ewwww.
