Us tattooed folks have no issues with the non-tattooed folks. I suggest the same level of respect be shared across both groups.

You know, just to think logically here, even though we usually can't have that in this world inhabited by psychotic apes.

I didn't mean you had to be in the circus or you'd wind up in the circus- it's just that is one of the few work environments where freakish body modifications might lead to a career enhancement.

How can a sleeve...covering an entire body segment in tattoo... be anything other over the top or gaudy?

Of course you don't have problems with non-tattooed folks. Why would I respect a decision that's so short sighted though? I respect your right to make it, of course- I just don't respect the decision itself. What's respectful about it? I respect decisions that are well though out and beneficial- not short-sighted and disfiguring. E.g. in wearing sunscreen vs. embedding ink in your skin, the sunscreen is the decision that I respect.

Hey guys, I did some digging and found a video of Carve getting a tattoo, wanting to be cool like his buddies... I think it explains why he hates tattoos so much.. I'll just let the video explain..

It was a few years back. I find it very expressive and meaningful, and I'm glad this stupid picture will be embedded in my skin for the rest of my days :P




LOL- can you believe someone actually got that!? They must've REALLY liked that sketch!

I love debating - whether or not I give two shits if the other cares, itself, is debatable.

Besides... I'm a banking exec. If I actually took to heart people's criticisms, and cared what everyone thought, especially the protesters that have shown up at my office tower... then I'd definitely have problems trying to deal with society.

I posted this on the other thread but I will post it here too. The frog represents my mother, the foo dog is for my father, and the big flowers are for each of my brothers. There is another one on the inside of my bicep that you can't see in this photo (3 brothers). It wraps all the way around my arm other than my arm pit. I have a nautical star over each collar bone that represents guidance and protection, as well as the Red Sox logo on my left calf and a chinese symbol that says brother near my right shoulder blade (me and a few friends got it done before we parted ways after high school, it was my first tattoo).

No touch ups yet, it is just about one year old. All together it took about 24 hours. I had four 5 hour sessions and one 4 hour finish/touch up session.

She's great, but the chance of anything long-term is probably, say, 15% of what it would've been otherwise. They're THAT unattractive, and attraction is important (even though the style matches the contemporary-asian decor of my house- LOL) In other words, she'd have to be damn near perfect except for the sleeves. When she told me she had them, she said something to the effect of "it's not typically what most guys picture when they think of the kind of girl they'd like to bring home to meet their mom". She's absolutely right. She's the same age as me.
Can I ask you a question. Why would you go out with her if something so obvious is so distasteful to you? In your words 15% chance of a long term resltionship or could we agree to call it a productive relationship. Seems hypcritical to me and screams that you're in it for one reason.

On topic I have 12, I am older mid 50's had them for years, first I was 19yo. Regrets nope, anything visible in the buisness world nope, caused me any problems nope , a few laughs when people say some pretty ingorant things about them and people who have them but nothing I can't just laugh it.

Depends on your definition of "real lady". Everyone will have their own version of that, and mine is tatted up pretty good... She works as a Labratory technician at a pediactrics center, owns her house and car, and has her priorities straight.

Of course

1) She's otherwise fun and attractive in many ways- especially when she's covered up and I can forget about them
2) I'm upfront- not hypocritical. I told her my opinion on tattoos right after she said she had them. I was VERY clear, saying many of the things I've said here (shortsighted...limiting....body not a canvas....don't see the point of 'em, etc.)
3) I told her right from the start I'm not really looking for anything long term at the moment (although I didn't mention how severely extensive tattoos reduce the possibility). Besides- in the spring she'll be moving around a lot for a year anyway for her medical program
4) To be open-minded and broaden my horizons
5) She's intelligent and bold with many similar views and interests- we have lots of fun

Beyond me initially making it very clear how much I dislike tattoos, I haven't brought them up once...but she has. When she first mentioned she had them, she said she's "very dedicated to her body art". Now...I think that maybe like some others posting here, it's because she doesn't have much choice anymore. Since then, she said she finished her sleeve a couple of years ago despite starting them 8 years ago...because she thought it would look better than leaving them unfinished. She finds them very limiting (especially when we she wants to wear a nice dress and look formal, which we've done- her idea not mine), and doesn't like the assumptions a lot of people make about her. She's thinking of removing a few smaller/simpler ones that are more difficult to cover up. She told me before she even knew my opinion on tattoos that "a lot of people can't see past the ink". I can...but why would she WANT anyone to? She got them to look at- not past. Learning a little more about her story, she got them at a more volatile and directionless time in her life when she clearly didn't have the self respect/esteem that she has now, as one might expect. I don't give her a hard time about it. Like I said- I never bring it up.

She likes me a lot, too. It's really too bad. I have a great time with her, but without that initial strong attraction, the relationship just doesn't have the potential it otherwise might. I also want a woman I feel proud to show off- not one I'd sometimes find embarassing or feel like I'd have to make excuses for.

Anyway, it's really reinforced my thoughts on tattoos. Don't get 'em, ladies.

I can confirm that this is a VERY common reaction to heavily tattooed girls. Not sure why anyone would want that.
