Miss America 2014: Donald Trump slams Miss Kansas Theresa Vail's tattoos

Miss Kansas, Sgt. Theresa Vail, will make a statement when she walks down the runway during Sunday's Miss America competition:she will be the first Miss America contestant to expose her tattoos during the pageant.

While many are praising Vail's ink and her platform -- empowering women to overcome stereotypes and break barriers -- one critic is not a fan of her body art ... Donald Trump, a.k.a. the owner of the Miss Universe Organization, which produces the Miss Universe, Miss USA, and Miss Teen USA pageants.

"We don't encourage it. I'm not a fan of tattoos. I see many people get the tattoos," Trump tells Piers Morgan. "I don't know what's going on nowadays, but just everybody's getting tattoos. Many of them regret it later."

Trump isn't just anti-tattoos because of his ideals. He also doesn't see the aesthetic benefit of the body art. "Many of them are done by people that aren't even artists. They have no talent, they have less talent than I would have in putting on a tattoo," Trump says. "I see these people with tic-tac-toe boards on their arms and legs. I don't understand what's going on with the tattoos. I would certainly not want it. I would not want anybody that I'm close to to have it."

 I like the tattoo. I've seen some tattoos from artists that could blow a person's mind. Trump's too high on his golden pony to know real art.

Well stop being a pussy and shut up about tattoos. It's not your body so what is the point about crying over this? He's so pompous and annoying, someone needs to get him passed out drunk then tattoo a dick on his face.
