It seems like these days everyone and their mother is getting tattooed. Heck, I've even thought about it....... :mrgreen:

Any of our members have tattoos that they'd like to show-off?

Nope, no tattoos. Just not a fan of them. I have seen some cool ones that had me thinking about it from time to time though.

Have no problems with other folks doing them but have no use for 'em, myself. One of the kids had a "whirlwind romance" and ended up with the name of the object of affection prominently displayed on the upper arm. It took many hours, lots of money (and, no doubt, discomfort), and ended up more than doubling the size of the mark trying to camoflage the artistic statement into something else. I still don't know what it's supposed to be, but now it looks like a high-speed car wreck and the name is still not that difficult to discern.

1. 'Miranda' (My daughter's name) on chest
2. Confederate State Army (skull wearing cowboy hat, flag, swords and rattlesnake)
3. Horned Bull Skull (in red/white/blue of Texas flag)
4. Crossing 'six shooters'
5. 'Gunslinger' on the back of my neck
6. Pirate skeleton w/sword and giving 1 finger salute

They are on both shoulders and shoulder blades, so I can't get pics right now...maybe later.

I have 3 !

An eagle on my left arm.

Yosemetee Sam with a smokeing gun and holding a confederate battle flag on my right arm.

And a skull wearing a cowboy hat on my chest. (this one was slightly damaged when I was hit by a drunk driver)

I don't have any but have seen a few that were quite nice. I watched the Tattoo parlors working day and night at Sturgis and felt a little weak in the knees just watching them work in the windows.

Lots of people walking around with the bandages on all day. I wondered how many folks would end up with Hepatitis following that routine. Its a curse of the tattoo parlors these days so you have to be careful of which places you visit for you tattoos.

I hear they change out the needles but it is still passed via the equipment I guess unless they follow hospital sterilization techniques.

I'm kind of old fashion in this regard. I've never seen a woman with a tatoo who wouldn't look better without it. Especially today. Many of these women have gone nuts with them. All over their arms, and lower legs, and of course let's not forget the "Tramp stamp" across the lower back, just above the butt crack. I saw a picture of that bike builder Jesse James 1st wife, (the one before Sandra Bullock), and she was tatooed everywhere! It looked terrible, and she was a beautiful girl. They think this is cool and in style now, but I can all but guarantee you when the bulk of these women get into their 50's, they'll wish they never did it. I've never seen a 20 year old tatoo that didn't run and look like crap. A tiny butterfly on the ankle is one thing, but these babes who have defaced their whole body are going to be sorry. If women want to be noticed a pair of tight jeans or a short skirt will get them far more positive attention than a half a gallon of ink pumped into their skin. And best of all you can take it off when your done. Bill T.

I guess I am old and not "Cool" because I agree completely!

A small well done tattoo with lots of color is nice but the line tattoo all over the butt is not in good taste, in my opinion. I have the problem of making a judgement call about intelligence when I see someone like that!

The barbed wire around the exposed arms is quite popular with the women in the Portland area. I don't see too many college grads sporting those either.

Yup - I agree too......

Oh, and the 2nd wife of Jesse James, Janine Lindemulder was a ex-porn star, so maybe that explains it!!!

I don't mind small, very discreet symbols. But when tattoo's are overdone and all over the place it starts to look tacky! I was thinking of getting an eastern symbol over my heart, in a place no-one would ever see it, but the thought of what it would look like 20 years from now has prevented me from doing it. Rich is totally against...........

You have brought up a very good point. How many of these "modern women" that look like a supermarket bar code are going to be successful in job interviews showing up looking like a billboard? Bill T.

Ha!Ha! :lol: :lol: Supermarket Bar Code!!! Now that's creative! Love it!

When in Finance and Accounting the companies that I worked for would tell folks that all the tongue studs, piercings that showed and tattoos would have to be covered. Otherwise hit the road. I believe Lowe's has pretty much the same policy. If you have no personal self respect they don't want to chat with you. It scares the customers!

I don't think any of the tattoos mentioned by the folks on the forum, so far, would be considered offensive.

I can't stand tattoos on girls either. Why mess up their pretty leg with some foolish flower or heart? To me, tattoos are like chewing tobacco...it is one of those things that are only right for a guy to do.

On a side note, I have seen that some girls are 'forced' to get inked up with their current boyfriend's name all over them...this is a way of trying to make sure that other guys won't want them. Gang tattoos are generally forced upon female members as well.

True, but those girls are idiot's. Any woman who let's her "boyfriend" order her to tatoo his name on her should be killed for nothing else but stupidity. Good God what is this country coming to?? Bill T.

Mel will wear short skirts, short shorts, high heels, name it. But zero tatoos! Now there is a way around all of this. They have "Fake Tatoos". She's got 'em. They look really cool, and after a night in the sack, they're gone! If not, whatever is left, the shower will take care of the next day. It's better than anything permanent. Bill T.
