Tattoo? Or Not Tattoo

TattooDa plane? Wow, how old am I anyway? Yep, old enough to remember Tattoo was a person.

I will admit that there are people that have gone entirely overboard on the tattoo culture, your face? What on earth? I have no explanation for the lack of love you must have for yourself and your image that you would mutilate yourself like that.

I have them; my family, children and friends have them. Do I like them? No, not really. I waited until my 30s to get one and still managed to regret it, even though the ones I have are small and tasteful.

I have an interesting and new take on the whole tattoo culture. I am starting to think it’s a waste of money. The way I have decided that flowers, CD’S and magazines are a waste of money.

Beauty and art is a waste of money.

**Beats shit out of self.

  1. Boy you must of had a bad day. I agree with the flowers, CD’s and magazines, but still love my tattoos. The release of endorphins from the pain makes tattooing addictive. However for most of us, we curb the desire to cover our bodies with them. I spent a long time deciding what I wanted to get and went through a lot of artists until I got what I wanted. Probably why I still like them after all these years.
    Oh, big reveal (no need to avert your eyes) 1 cat, 2 spiders, 2 dragonfly’s. πŸ™‚

  2. I have 2 that are visible on my left arm, the wolf’s head and my wife’s first name is on my upper arm in memory of her (she passed away) , and one on my forearm it’s a iron cross with an english rose instead of Jesus, it’s in memory of my Father , I have a space reserved on my left arm between the 2 existing tattoos for a blue bird with an olive branch in it’s beak, it’s not there yet, but will be a memorial tattoo for my Mother when she passes, I have my son’s name tattooed on my back (left shoulder) along with a bible passage. the tattoos you can’t see are on my inner thighs next to my junk….. those I regret, I got them when I was 17 in a friends basement ….in hindsight I’d like to go back in time and boot my 17 year old self in the ass . 1 is a pair of cherries with a bite taken out of one, the other is the ace of spades with Born to Lose- Live to Win around it (taken from a MotorHead Album cover) … ugh… I really was an idiot when I was younger!!

  3. I like them on me and others, but I have a hard time finding very many things that I think I will permanently like seeing on me. I also have them where I can hide them if I don’t want me or others to see them. I guess that’s kind of my way of making them temporary.

  4. I have 5 (I think). They’re all fairly small. The only one I really regret is the one behind my ear – because it’s not easily hidden. All of them though, I could take or leave. It was definitely a passing phase for me – but it didn’t pass before I’d had over 30 piercings.

  5. I am 57 years old, and I have seven tattoos. Of those seven, only one of them do I regret.I regret it because it was very poorly done, and doesn’t really speak to me the way my other tattoos do. Fortunately it is not visible in polite company. I got my first tattoo at age 36, after wanting one for 18 years. Six of my seven tattoos have very deep meaning for me. I actually have an eighth tattoo planned. And I am definitely old enough to remember when Tattoo was a person.

  6. I don’t understand the draw to having one on your face, however if that’s what you like, then I guess that’s cool? But definitely not my cup of tea.
    I’m 31 and I have 4 tattoos. None of which I regret. Yet. haha. Mind you, I’m still in shape so ask me 50 years when my body is old and wrinkly. πŸ™‚ It’s still a fun way to express one self but yes, I can agree also a waste of money, just like a lot of things in life.

  7. Good topic. All my kids and grandkids have them, some more than others. I want ONE. I am 74 years old. ONE. On my right inner wrist: three letters in bold CAPS: D N R. That’s it. Maybe a small Irish shamrock. Ok? DO NOT RESUSCITATE. Done.

  8. That’s why you don’t get one til you know you won’t regret them. I don’t regret a single one of mine. Always planning the next one. I can think of worse things to “waste” money on. And the girls always want to see them.
