    I'm one of the lucky ones; got a bunch of them in the Navy in the 1960's and they're still in good condition; very clear. I thought they'd be just indistinguishable blotches of ink by now, but they're not.

    It’s not hate. It’s displeasure from people who think it’s stupid. She doesn’t know what real hate is. I HATE people that label everything as hate. Thats a victim mentality trait.

    Empowering? I don’t get that. If you need anything other than your own mind to empower you, you may be weak. To each their own with a bodysuit. The ear holes are just stupid. They are not unique as every idiot that wanted to be unique has them. It’s not normal unless you are from a tribe that actually does something like that. To me it’s playing make believe, being something you are not. Fantasy. Something that should be not be done when you are a grown person. But then again, a lot of people don’t live in reality. It’s all attention seeking IMO. Again, something that adults should be over at some point.

    I have two tattoos. I wish I didn’t have any. It’s so common it’s disgusting at this point. Mine are hidden and I’m glad they are.

    I HATE TAT's...especially on women.

    I HATE TAT's all over a persons face. (and god knows where ever else)

    i'd never hire anyone that had a face full of tat's when i ran the garage.

    there i said it.....

    I kind of agree with this. One tattoo, don't care to get another. Seemed cool when I was 27. Lol

    If you only have one tattoo...army unit insignia... and absolutely no memory of getting it, does it still count?

    You want a tattoo, get one. I couldn't care less. I think they are distasteful and ugly. But that's me. I won't comment on them or judge you for them, but the sight of one IS part of a first impression, and for me, that will lower the first impression as I don't believe one should purposefully mar their body. To me, it says you have a self esteem problem. And no, I won't mention any of that. Unless you ask me what I think of them. If you don't want an honest answer, don't ask the question. :D

    I remember a time when you had to answer for your tattoos. A time where getting a tattoo that resembles a underworld organizations tattoo would have caused issues.

    maybe she hasn’t come across those situations yet or the fact that no one cares anymore. But a crutch is still a crutch.
