It's funny - I've never met a heavily tattooed person who cared in the least if anyone else was tattooed or not, or thought less of anyone without tattoos because of that simple fact, but met a whole lot who are quick to judge someone because of their interests or the way they look. I've spent the majority of my life as a heavily tattooed man and while it's not like it used to be, it still amazes me how people can be so manipulated by their own misunderstanding and ignorance.

I guess there are people everywhere who like to elevate themselves above others because of their prejudice. Some people think we are dumb for being into old cars. They don't get it either...

Also guys - "tats" is pretty much the equivalent of fingernails on a chalkboard in the tattoo community. Say what you like, but just an FYI.

This is the part I don't get. Whether you want them or not is fine, but if you complain to me that you don't have the money to pay your bills but have thousands of dollars in tattoos, I don't have any pity for you.

Personally I prefer the clean look without tattoos on myself. I can't get tired of a tattoo I don't have.

I have nothing against people with tattoos. My now deceased running buddy was covered from head to toe and that was well before it became a trend. I know lots of bad people that wear suits and ties everyday and have no tattoos at all.
I have a couple my self that are pretty old now. Probably would have a few more but I have a hard enough time healing skin breaks as it is with out paying to have more. To each, his own. Thatís what makes the world interesting....

Tats was a slang word I was familiar with back in the day by gang head types that had ....tattoos. Thats what they called them, "tats".

With so many people having tattoos, a form of job discrimination because of tattoos in some work environments has been possible recently, probably not so much in the future.

i have no problem with tats and like the nice ones. never held someone up for having a tat. same with piercings, as i have a ear ring i wear from time to time. but you come in with huge holes in your ears and cheeks and i am gonna laugh at you, i'm sorry i do have a morbid sense of humor.

Personally they are not for me... didn't get any while in the Army and overseas and never got wasted enough to be pulled into a parlor... so I remain simply spotted with some age spots, freckles and graying everyday hair...

Iíve got friends with several. Doesnít bother me, if I think of you as a friend, itís probably not because of what you look like. That is, unless you look like Heather Locklear in the 1980ís, Kate Jackson in the 1970ís, Stevie Nicks around 1979, or several other babes, then iím Happy to be with you for your looks!

My son in prison has them everywhere. I was ok with it until he started putting them on his face. He pretty well spoiled his chances of ever getting a decent job when, or if, he ever gets out.
