Personally, I think tattoos are alright as long as they hold a deeper meaning.
I have a small barcode on my ankle with the day my nephew was born and the day he died under it.
Then I have a quote on my lower back, which says "Everybody dies, but not everybody lives." in pretty cursive letters.
A lot of people judge me because I have tattoos but honesly I don't see a problem with them because nobody can see my tattoos. They aren't somewhere noticable and my tattoos hold a very deep meaning that I hold dear to my heart.
My son says that my tattoos are cool.
What do you think of tattoos? Do you think they're trashy? Do you think they're awesome?
I have one on my ankle and one on my left shoulder blade and i plan on getting more. I had promised my dad i wouldn't get anything gaudy or something I'll regret. i never said anything about the number i would get. ;P
I have 3, SO has 14 or 15. He's working on a sleeve. I love them but I try to put mine where they can be concealed because I am graduating in May as a surgery tech. And I don't want them hindering my job search.
I LOVE tattoos, I have several and they all mean something, including the 18in by 15in one i have that covers most of my back... they all tell stories and i do have my favorites like the tattoo wedding ring that i have (i have real ring) but my dh has the same one on his finger that i do on mine cause our marriage is something perminate... I have plans on getting more.... there is nothing wrong with tattoos in my personal opinion.
DH and I love tattoo's. While not all of mine have a 'deep meaning', I do spend quite a few months picking/designing just the right ones before I run out and tell my tattoo guy "slap a chinese symbol on me!".
