I never wore dresses or skirts before I was heavily tattooed - because I am short, chubby, pale with rosy cheeks. When I wore a dress, I looked like a little girl.

I don't look like nobody's little girl no more ^.^

So because someone does like what you like, they are a jerk? Fair enough sure!

I've only ever gotten compliments on mine.
A nicely chosen bit of ink always looks well, shite always looks shite.

Sorry, just cause someone is entitled to their opinion doesn't mean I have to think they are right, or deal with their subsequent horse****.

It doesn't make them a 'jerk' either though

I do NOT need anyone around me on the regular with a "'tattoos look horrible on women" attitude in their head. It would be bad for my self esteem.

reasonable: "I am not into tattooed women"
jerk: "tattoos look horrible on woman"

Don't have any, but it's something I'd really like to do. All that's held me back is that I'd want it to be something individual and unique to me, and it hasn't come to me yet.

Some tattoos look terrible, others look incredible, but I'd never judge anyone who had them. Each to their own.

I have a Kanji symbol on my shoulder and a dragon on my pec (man boob). Will more than likely get another of oriental influence in the near future. They have no significant meaning to me and there are some who like them and some who don't. It doesn't make any odds to me what others think of them, I like them! Opinions are like a**eholes-everyone's got one but most should keep it to themselves!

I've got one on my for arm its the autonomous symbol, that The graffiti artist, Futura 2000 or Futura, he rose to fame because of a lot of work with mowax records and a number of other artists...

But there are 5 rings all inter connected
each ring stands

for
. Self worth
. value my self
. Self belief
. Self esteam
all of which together I peaced these all around the outer ring which is Confidence...
I believe that the above 4 are the deciding factor...

Cant understand how someone else having a tattoo could possibly bother anyone. Ok maybe if it was like a nazi symbol on the forhead it would be a bit off putting but anyhow

Not really fond of them myself, some look cool but in my head its like deciding to have a uniform for the rest of your life, always stuck wearing the same thing. A mate has one I think is hilarious, a shamrock over his heart that you have to brush away chest hair to see.

Anyone get the barbed wire that was so popular in the 90s?

Speaking of that, I worked for a few months teaching English in Thailand, it was a community college so the students were in the 17-20 age bracket. One of the students had that swastika tattoo that Edward Norton's character had in American History X, the same size, in exactly the same position (and no, it wasn't the Buddhist version!). Another teacher, from Germany, had to sit him down and explain the history of it and what it meant..he was boarding in the college and had a tendency to walk around with his shirt off. That was the only time I was ever disturbed by a tattoo.

I've come to learn that there are people in this world who actually want to get offended by things that don't affect them. Bit sad really
