Love 'em. I have 3. I know other people look down on them.
Everyone has their own opinions on them.

I think they're interesting. I have one that extends from my elbow to almost my shoulder. No regrets. I generally think they're more attractive if SOME effort has gone into keeping them 'discreet'. That said, I also like the 'art show' style displays (just not for ME).

Tatoos are cool if they're done right and the tatoo matches the person. It's funny when you see some people with a certain tatoo and it just doesn't look right.

I want to get a small one... problem is I'm big time scared of pain.

I don't mind them a bit as long as they are easily covered for formal occasions.

My wife has several small ones (5 in all) but again they are all easily covered though she does get strange looks from snooty church people when at the swimming pool.

I think they are wonderful. I only have one, and for the time being it's enough for me but there is really that part of my soul that could get decked out (tastefully) from head to toe in images & words that have deep meanings to me. As a woman I find the majority of tattoos on men ravishingly attractive, and those on other women very beautiful.

I tend to think that if the tattoo was entered into with the right frame of mind (lol, as oppressed to 12 beers making the judgment calls for you) and after a bit of consideration, the wearer will usually display it (or them) in a way that conveys that he or she is happy with their tattoo art. And that sense of happiness with their tat(s) makes the particular design look good on that person. What works on one person doesn't always look as good (or “fitting”) on another.

I love the sense of permanence that a tattoo implies (I know that they can now be “removed”, but for most people our skin art is a lifelong companion). Something about the choice to commit yourself to modifying your body for the rest of your days is very appealing to me.

The problem is that it happens too often that what seems to be a brilliant idea at certain point can become something you will sorely regret later... even if you can remove it probably it will be a lot more of a hassle to do it than putting it on... to me it doesn't seem worth the trouble..

And who knows this will not happen to you....
