tattoos used to only be on inmates, sailors, yakuza, gang members.
Now every stripper is covered, every  rock star, housewives, grandmas, and so on.

hopefully parents wont start inking their kids or their pets

frankly I still think after all these years that it is tacky looking and I look down on people that do it.

oh cool, another man looking down on people who do what they want with their bodies

awesome

I have missed you



and have this to say to this thread....... its a great saying........

opinions are like assholes....... everybody has got one.... "fill in the blank"

This may show where we are all coming from. smile There are so many ways to complete this in this situation or any. Please be kind and rewind. Perhaps our views of things are different people. Dont be a jerk to me and I wont be one to you. We are at war with other countries over so many different things. There is turmoil and hatred amongst our people and for what? May I ask? Shouldnt it be for a reason more than what people do to their bodies? We glance at someone and instantly judge them if their skin is different or if their body is marked. That is a pretty lame excuse as a way to judge people. Plenty of educated people have marked skin and potentially have saved lives of someone you knew or know or helped to advance us in ways you dont even know. Perhaps you check yourselves and look into who YOU are and what YOU do before pointing a finger. Always look to better yourself, first. That is how we as a whole can grow and change to make a better future.

The man on the corner dressed in raggedy clothes may be a millionaire for all you know. He just doesn't show it. The man covered in full tattoo sleeves that you saw in the deli at 5am could have been on his way to provide surgery to a young child in dire need. There are people who work humble livings because they really love what they do, not because they are money hungry. Listen fast before you judge because some of those white collared people  may APPEAR to have it all together, but behind closed doors, it all falls apart. Never judge someone by their appearance, is what I am saying. Give people a chance. Have a lovely day people.

It's always telling how small minded people are when they live in counties/cities that have so few people... it's representing a few city blocks of a larger, open minded city in the US.

YOU, Sir... are intolerant and, besides photographic talent, are really an embarrassment to the artistic community in the US.

It's always weird seeing people that proclaim to do artistic work having a closed mind.

Just imagine if your mind would be actually open... and tolerant... the art you'd be able to create...

Sad!  sad

Tattoos are a way of self expression (at least thats what I believe they should be). I have quite a few , I am female, I am petite, and my tattoos are large and bold. I've changed tattoos, so I guess I also fall into the category of "changing my mind". Sometimes a bad tattoo is just like a scar, it reminds you of where you were at that point in your life, and the life lessons you learned and what came from that particular time.

I don't think it's a matter of them ever going away or do I think people should "wish they would". It's the same difference as a person wanting to wear their hair a certain style, dress a certain way, portray a certain image, etc. It is nice people are more accepting of them now and they are considered more "normal" and people don't look at you like you've got two heads. But just as there is an increase in population, there is an increase in tattoo art , and that of course will lead to an increase in tattoo removal.
