  • I don't really like excessive tattoos, but it's only a personal preference. I don't really care if others choose to get them. I don't mind one tasteful one, but I could never think of something that I would want on me for the rest of my life. Anything I would have chosen 10 years ago I would think is stupid now. My son is only 7 months old so I am not going to worry about that for now!

  • I'm gonna treat myself to a couple of tattoos for my 50th birthday! I think they're okay, I wouldn't go extreme like sleeves or anything, but a couple of 'em aren't bad.

  • I don't think less of a person if they have tattoos, but I do think people should think LONG and HARD before getting one. I was tempted to get one in college, but always chickened out. Now I am so glad I never went through it. It has been my experience with anyone I know, that they ALMOST always regret the choice somewhere down the line. My husband has a dragon that goes from this shoulder blade clear down his back and he would get rid of it in a heartbeat if possible.

  • I don't mind them as long as they think about where they will be located on their bodies. I don't really like the whole sleeves and stuff like that, or like whole body tatts.. I have 2 tattoos. One on my back (which you can't see... only if I wear a bathing suit.. and one on my ankle. I wouldn't be mad if my children wanted to get tatts once they were older *adults* and have thought about it. As for my husband I wouldn't care either. It is an option that each individual will think differently on! But no, I am not against them in general. If my dd did come home with a sleeve or a whole body tat, I would still lover her regardless.. It wouldn't change her as a person!

  • It depend on the art. I think tattoo's can look really good on both men and women. But I hate seeing people put a bunch of different themed tattoo's in different places on there body. There was this women that used to come into the restaurant I worked at that had on one arm Winnie the Poo, a white tiger cub, Tweety, and a fairy. There was no flow. She looked like a little kid that got into the whole box of temporary tattoo's.

  • I have 3 and want at least one more. My dh makes fun of people with tats, but if he changed his mind and got one I'd be very cool with it. My oldest dd is 14 and says she's thinking about it when she turns 18, but she's definitely getting a couple piercings she says. We'll see what she really does when she turns 18. I do believe in waiting until you're 18 and don't have to have someone sign for you. It's kind of a coming of age thing...
