Tattoos

What is this obsession with tattoos? Don’t get me wrong, I think a tattoo can be very decorative and as a matter-of-fact not long ago when I was in a bit of a mood I thought of getting one myself, just a little one on my ankle. I thought it would spark me up a bit.

Couldn’t decide between a red-back spider and a rose, which for an old woman at my age would have been more appropriate. Never being an ‘appropriate’ sort of person I couldn’t make up my mind so I bought a box of chocolates and a bottle of Baileys and by the time I had consumed these I had got out of my mood and forgot about the tattoo.

However, so many bodies these days are absolutely covered with tattoos and although they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder I really can’t see anything beautiful about a body full of ink.

Still I guess it’s every person’s right to do what they want with their bodies but what happens when they run out of skin?

Would be interesting to hear other’s opinions.

Re: Tattoos

Dotti tattoos look very good to many,thing is when you get a fair bit older, they dont, i say that from experience, i have many on both arms, also had em on both hands, until i decided that they looked a real mess, so i had em, removed by laser, would have done it years sooner, but it was skin grafts back then, which i thought looked worse than the tattoos, thing young uns should bear in mind if they get the same though as i did,is the simple fact it cost thousands to have em removed and its also more painful than having em on. So my advice to any young un thinking of it, is "DON'T BOTHER"

Re: Tattoos

I hate them.
I think the current trend for covering every visible inch of skin with drawings is appalling.
I have not seen any tattoo and thought WOW that is beautiful.

I do not think you can improve on what you were born with.
I would NEVER consider being tattooed.....not in a million years.

And what about these daft girls who have the names of their children tattooed on the back of their neck.
What is that all about.

If the people who are getting tattoos had been born with a birthmark in the place that they are being tattooed....they would be queueing up for the NHS to take it off.

Everyone to their own....and this is just my opinion....which is not worth much.

Re: Tattoos

the one thing that i find off putting is a tattoo. for me its like having a bad scar on your body. the last thing i would ever have even if they paid me. apart from putting tattoos of their kids on themselves some get their girlfriend/boyfriends names as well. might well get a blind inserted in em with all christian names on so they can just turn it to the correct name for the day.

There’s quite a few in my family with tattoos, not a fan of them myself.

Re: Tattoos

I had my girlfriends name tattooed on my forearm in 1959 when I was stationed in Portsmouth during my national service.
When I came home on my second leave she gave me the engagement ring back and went off with another chap.

Some where the original 'silver surfers' and are sadly no longer with us, others weren't that old and have moved on only to be harassed on Facebook instead of staying here to let me do it in my more kindly way.

Re: Tattoos

Oops! I should have checked first if there had been a previous thread on this subject and then I should really have re-opened that one. Sorry about that. I found the comments on that thread very interesting – and of interest were the posters themselves. Like you, Margaret, I have no interest in Facebook – but greatly enjoy being a member of Accyweb.
