    Aprapos a thread elsewhere I'd love to know the general consensus here re tattoos.
    Pros and cons boardsies please.
    I absolutely hate them and more, I hate the mentality behind them.
    "Lets all go and get tattoos! Yeah! Look how outrageous we are!"
    Also, if your going to forget your loved ones names and DOBs unless you have them tattooed on your leg, should you be allowed out without a minder??

    If you want a tattoo get a tattoo. If you don't, don't. Simple.

    Lets all moan about people with tattoos! Look how outrageous we are!


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,096 ✭✭✭✭bucketybuck


    And yet if you wore the same clothes for the rest of your life people would think you weird.


  • Registered Users Posts: 30,178 ✭✭✭✭freshpopcorn


    If you want one get one wherever you want but don't expect everybody to like them!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 31,152 ✭✭✭✭KERSPLAT!


    I'd be of the opinion, mind your own ****ing business, with regards to tattoos :)

    Is that what people say?


  • Registered Users Posts: 397 ✭✭Carlosthejakal


    Personally I really like tattoos, and I have often admired people who have cool ones. I would like to get a tattoo for the past 10 years or so but I have not found something I would be happy with for life.
    No gf /partner names or faces, no diy jobs either. It always looks terrible imo

    Of course it is. The OP knows because he has indept knowledge of every tattooed person.
    Op, different strokes and all that.
    I have me own life to look after than worry about a bit of ink or something on someone else minding their own business

    Your boyfriend might leave you if you get a tattoo


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,018 ✭✭✭Ficheall


    I was never keen on them, but when the widow's peaks expanded so much they joined each other, I got 106 little black rabbits tattooed on my forehead.

    Yep this is the theme of a thread elsewhere


  • Registered Users Posts: 30,178 ✭✭✭✭freshpopcorn


    I will admit I wouldn't be the biggest lover of Tattoo's even some of one's that people would call trashy but the one's I hate are the one's of Pokemon!

    Don't be ridiculous - what sort of shoddy tattoo artist do you think I went to? :P

    Oh you have a tattoo, a beard and you like Conor McGregor? You seem interesting, let's discuss postmodern decronstructivism...or, if you insist, gym routines...


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,411 ✭✭✭Stigura


    Put simply? I have a load of tattoos. But, ye wouldn't know that unless ye saw me with my clothes off. And That's not liable to happen! :eek:

    So, yeah. Don't worry about them. Morbidly obese people are harder on My eye than tattoos. And Those f**kers can't hide That.

    I've a big fat obnoxious colourful tattoo on one side of my chest, from the collar-bone down to the top of my breast. It's not work-friendly. I work in accountancy. I just keep it covered in the workplace - no big deal. It's pretty and lovely and I don't think I'll ever regret it!

    I've another smaller tattoo the other side of my chest, easier to hide, I don't like it as much but it's for my son and it's "his" tattoo (an owl) and he loves it, so it's grand!

    I'd get loads more ink if I had the money, to be honest! I do get quite a few judgey comments about the ones I have (well, about the one that's mostly on display) and I don't really care ... you can't take those sort of things personally, that's only their perception of the world and of me. I can't and won't own their feelings.

    Tattoos are lovely..like a new pair of jeans or car or sunglasses. Unfortunately they go out of fashion/appeal. You have only so much skin on your body so the minute you cover it it is gone for ever. Tattoos have got so common now that to be not tattooed is a bigger sign of artistic freedom and evidence of being not influenced by pop culture.

    Truly is the definition of go big or go home. People covered in well done tatoos look amazing. They probably could have bought a house with the money but fcuk that. Little twatty doodles from some eejit look ****e.


  • Registered Users Posts: 315 ✭✭Teddington Cuddlesworth


    I got a tattoo.
    It's ****.

    Do I regret getting it?
    No.

    Would I get another one?
    No.


    It's on my upper back and the only time it sees direct sunlight is when I'm on holiday, most of my friends/family keep forgetting I have it they see it so rarely.

    I do admire tattoos on other people though, but equally, I judge them.


  • Registered Users Posts: 939 ✭✭✭nuckeythompson


    They all go out of fashion eventually. And most people regret them later in life, even though few admit it


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,394 ✭✭✭✭Turtyturd


    How does that quote go again?

    The difference between tattooed and non tattooed people is that tattooed people don't give a sh!t that you don't have tattoos.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,570 ✭✭✭MyStubbleItches


    Ah shur look if you want to be cool get one, doesn't matter what it is as long as its INK. All the cool people have them. If you want to be properly cool, get one twenty years ago. Apart from the 'I love mum' or Anto '20/10/83', a lot of the tattoos from then are admirable. These days it's tramp stamps and idiot supposed-to-be-Maori shíte.

    Almost got one a few years ago but the aftercare sounded a bit gross so I didn't bother.

    I was out running today and saw a middle-aged woman in shorts a few feet ahead who had the most horrific and torturous looking varicose veins all over both of her calves.
    It was only as I got closer that I realized it actually was a tattoo- some kind of blue thunderbolt design on both legs..??

    The problem with tattoos is the fact that what you think is tasteful or attractive at one point in your life will invariably look awful at some point down the line.
