    A little time and money and the right artist could really touch those up and have em looking supreme again. I've seen some pretty amazing work on older tattoos that were freshened up.

    No touch up needed ... that’s a current picture. In person, the look brand new ... thanks, though!

    I think it's a generational thing. I grew up in the '60s and it was pretty rare then. None of my role models or peers had tats or piercing. I've never had the desire for one. But, if I had grown up in the '90s or '00's I prolly would have a tat or two.

    What a tough experience.

    I've got no way of knowing what you've been thriough........

    Yes, I do acknowledge that a few of them, have this kind of significance. And if they all contained deeply held feelings like this, I doubt I would have ever opened my mouth on the subject.

    Hi.

    I too like some of these. But, going back to what I said previously about design choices, some of these are going to turn into the dreaded blob. To anyone contemplating their first tattoo (or, first small or fine detail one) I'd urge they do a lot of research first about line thickness, shading, bleed/smear, etc.

    There's a reason for those old sayings, like 'bold will hold.'

    I Was Stationed in Cyprus and on Guard Duty. While on patrol I heard a buzzing noise coming from the Orderly Room on closer inspection I found it to be a guy doing tattoos on fellow soldiers so I booked a spot and came back later and on my right arm had two hearts with an arrow thru with my wifes name and mine. I then did another patrol and came back and had a dagger tat on my left arm intending to have the date and "Who Dares Wins" but we had a call out and I had to rush away. I never got the tat finished.. Still ain't.. S

    I've never gotten a tattoo from that guy who works out of a rusty school bus.

    I've lived by two simple rules:
    Don't get a tat when drunk.
    Don't get a tat when sober.

    Lucky you, you were visited by the Ghost of Tattoo Future. I never saw the appeal of tattoos. To me if you want to wear a logo wear a t-shirt, then if you get tired of it you put on another t-shirt. And even in my youth I thought what about when I get my parents age or older. And now I'm way older than they were back when I thought that, and have no tattoos, but have worn many many different t-shirts.

    I was part of a random tattoo mob at Erno's, Mandy was jacking the gun, a tall 6'2" nicely proportioned women all hail and hardy was being tattooed she was having a large tattoo of the purple muppet tattooed on her right buttock . on the other buttock was a large tattoo of the green mppet, the tattooing finished cigerettes and coca colas in hand as Mandy was tapping on the cling wrap asked so whats with the muppets on your a$$?
    The recipient looked over her shoulder with a charming smile ,and said "
    " when I'm getting done from behind, I like to put on a good show for my friend."

    .

    I continue to be amazed with the number of tattoos people get. My father told me when I was a teenager, and young enough I hadn't even considered getting a tattoo, how captured solders with tattoos were skinned alive in WWII and their tattoos were cured and turned into lampshades. It was a definite reason to avoid getting marked. I still have no tattoos. I appreciate the art on others though.



    I've written science fiction novels and, thanks to my father, one of the series began with how tattoo ink initiated the zombie apocalypse ...

    I have a few. I like them. I have zero regrets. I am already over 60. Some of my friends have tats, some don’t. No biggie.

    I don’t have any tattoos.

    ...you don’t spray paint graffiti on the side of the Taj Mahal.

    I'm 62. No tats. I have nothing against them, but lots of folks grow to regret getting them for various reasons.

    If I had a company, restaurant, whatever, employees would be representing me. For that reason no tattoos could be exposed. You can have 'em but not where they are permanently on view. E.g. sleeve, long sleeve shirt. Legs, cover with trousers or longer skirt. Zero tolerance to neck and face or full-time exposure.

    That’s fine, cos in my imaginary world your imaginary ‘company, restaurant, whatever,’ only has tattooed imaginary customers. :)
