What are your feelings about your sig other's tattoo(s)?
Well, the other guys' names she keeps adding, those kinda bug me.
No tats on me and I've checked the old lady pretty close, sorry I'm in the wrong thread.
I think visible tattoos on anyone is 'tacky.' Visible as in wearing a t-shirt and jeans and you can still see them. I have a very small tattoo on the back of my ankle in remembrance of my grandfather and it is the same tattoo he had. I also have one on my upper bicep, I don't want anymore but my wife does. She has several, but not in any neither region and as long as she keeps it that way I don't care. Its her body, just don't mark on it where I can see it.
All the sleeved up guys I see at my age are already starting to look like they have leprosy on their arms......it only gets worse from there.
I could certainly live without it; hers isn't very good, even as tattoos go, and I don't find tattoos attractive in their own right. However, I've dated a couple ladies that had them in the last several years, and personality takes first priority every time. I'm being very matter-of-fact about it, because if I keep getting to know someone, the tattoo(s) becomes part of the entire person and becomes sort of invisible. Ink.
Don't like tats on women. They look especially worse as the canvas gets to grandma age.
I don't have any.
My wife has a small one. I'd like her to get it removed.
It is not a deal-breaker, however.
My wife has one tattoo. My feeling is that its absurdly funny. True story follows:
Years ago her sister was in NYC and came across a collapsed man. She wanted to try CPR but was afraid of diseases (she is rather 'shallow'), so didn't, and had no cell to call for help. Most New Yorkers of course just walked right by the gent. A guy finally came up & leaned over as though to help, took his wallet and ran. Tough place to collapse!
Wife (who never travels solo in a city) thought "OMG, what if that happened to me, and I ended up in the hospital or morgue (!) and they couldn't ID me??" I suggested she follow my youthful path and commit crimes = fingerprints, but she decided to get her SSN tattooed on her right big toe. That way the morgue attendant would see it when he put the toe tag on, and she'd be ID'd! Voila!!
I laughed hysterically at the idea, so my wife of course got the tattoo while I was away. One of our young kids told me the news, so I asked my wife if she'd heard the updated morgue procedure: they had started putting the tag on the LEFT big toe!
She is wonderful but gullible, so fell for it fully until I assured her the right toe was still perfect. The tattoo started going south a few years later, and now--in spite of some fun touch-ups--is completely illegible; looks like an ink smear.
I don't make this stuff up.
My GF has one, a dolphin on her ankle. I have no issue with it. It wouldn't bother me if she got more if she wanted to but I doubt she will because she hated the experience and didn't even finish the tat.
Most of the women I work with are tatted. As are the men. I refuse to get one at this point because getting a tattoo is way too conformist these days. I don't really do conformity well.
I have one, my wife has one. We both wish we never got them now.
I've dated a couple of women with tattoos. I can honestly say that I've never seen one that improves the looks of anyone.
My perspective as well
My wife has been threatening to get a tattoo ever since I've known her, but hasn't followed through yet. If she ever does, I'm sure I'll love the tattoo whatever it is--she has great taste in visual art.
I don't have any tattoos. My wife has her eyeliner tattoo'd on. I guess that counts. I wake up in the morning, look over at her,...sexy eyes!
I have a few tattoos myself (not visible with work attire) my wife doesn't have any. She finds it attractive. I will never ask her to get one but if she wanted one I wouldn't oppose.
When I was a kid (I hate that expression at age 60) the only people who had tats were 1)Men and 2) Men who were in the service who got them to mark a time frame, an event or to memorialize a fallen friend or even one drunken night
out of a 3 day leave. If you asked, the answer might be a story or a brief but polite "me and my buddies were drunk" and there is where you left it.
I think it was the mid-nineties that I started to see these youngsters, (needed a parent signature) many of whom were beginner metal musicians, who were totally sleeved in almost neon bright colors. No stories, no life experience to speak of, pretty much no sense. Not long after, it seems like females of that generation started getting them too.
If there was a significant other, a few tats would be cool just no facial please and I'd hope that her tats would represent something special to her and not just be there as a fashion statement of whatever particular era. I have 4, all above the elbows and all black. Not particularly proud of or embarrassed by them since each one has a meaning and is a permanent part of me.
When she was a teenager, my wife and one of her boyfriends tattooed each others intials on their shoulders. The relationship didn't last, but the bad ink did. She had a tattoo artist cover up the initials with a small heart and arrow. Not the best tat I ever saw, but it's on the front of her shoulder and most people don't even know she has it. She has talked about getting a tattoo on her leg. It's no big deal to me, if that is what she wants.
Those are what mine are, no frills.
