Personally I think the numbers are low. They only talked to little more than 2500 people. And they didn't ask me. I have three.

Not me, nope, never. I would never want to live with the same graphic the rest of my life. I go through transformations on a regular basis and would not want to be locked in to one permanent image. It's like being able to cut your hair in different styles, change its color. Also, I'm not crazy about tattoos on wrinkled skin, and I hope to live to at least 100.

Rob (my partner) and I finally had the Celtic Moon put on our right shoulders on our 5th Anniversary last year. Like Kim's Mister...it was a huge decision for Him as we had been "maybe" going to do it for 4 years!!!:>)

Nope, no tattooes. No piercings, either, 'cepting for those more-or-less accidental ones that have scarred over. I've never found a design that I liked enough to live with forever and besides, I'd have to give up giving blood for a while if I got either a tattoo or a piercing.

My ex-USMC nephew has one, a modest "USMC" in a scroll on his upper right bicep. His then-fiance-now-wife thought it "dumb", threatened to get one herself and asked me what I thought she should get. I suggested a tasteful flaming skull encircled with the legend "Booze Boys And Harleys" and nephew nearly went through the roof! We managed to calm him down; as far as I know he's still the only one in his household with a tattoo.

No tattoos here either.

My wife had an interesting question awhile back. There were some white racists on TV an several of them had multiple tatoos covering large portions of their bodies. She asked why someone who hated people of color and was so proud of being white would want to cover up their white skin and make it darker. I had no answer for her.

Neither of us have anything against tatoos. We just doen't want one ourselves.

The Republicans and general population may only have 14% tattoos, but the under 25 population surely is much, much higher.

I'm with Alice. I'm all for transformation, not fixation. And the old cliche "nothing lasts forever" is one that more people should consider, when it comes to how their tattoos will look on wrinkled skin, especially if they pursue that other bizarre skin fixation of tanning. Then there are the distorted tattoos on people who have gained weight...

No thanks!

The inks are much better now than they used to be - you've probably seen old tattoos that have bled out around the edges and become fuzzy... That doesn't happen so much anymore. And the people doing them consider themselves artists, and are very serious about their work.

Tattooing isn't for everyone, that's true. But that's okay. Vive le difference. :-)

I had a tattoo in Hong Kong while on a drunken run ashore in the 60,s I had a look at the designs on the wall and thought for some strange reason that the head of christ with a crown of thorns would look great on my arm but after a week when the scab came off it looked like a chinaman with a sweat band ,I then had it covered over with a black panthers head now 40 years on it looks like a black blob, beware. I also heard a tale of a drunken Scotsman in a foreign port trying to explain that he wanted a thisle with Scotland underneath but ended up with a pineapple

I look at all the young girls with tattoos around hip level (fully or partly visible with hipster jeans) & wonder what will be the next fashion. And what they will do with their unfashionable tattoos then?

I also remember an 18 year old permanently wearing a 2" square of plaster on her upper arm to cover the tat she got in a drunken moment when she was 16. Nowadays lasers remove them permanently (or so the ads say) but we still hears stories of famous (& not so famous) folks getting their tats modified to cover an old love's name.

Years ago I borrowed a book on tattoos written by a Naval surgeon from the library. Naturally he'd seen a lot in his career! Some were in amazing locations - a fox hunt came over the shoulder, down the back & chased the fox into ... Certainly this was the unspeakable in pursuit of the uneatable.

Anyway, not for me - even tho I'm very conservative in my clothes & jewellery (I hate throwing away favourite clothing & wear stuff long after other folks would throw it away as old fashioned or shabby) I still like to change & would not like a permanent tat even if it was a teddy bear!! Besides needles hurt.

Alice,
tats are transitional. I started off some years ago with a small dragon and then got fed up with it and had it incorporated into another tat wich I then got tired of and had incorporated into another tat, whilst having a couple of others done. I am now contemplating having something else done to them, and still they cover only a small part of my body surface area.

Have none myself, but I'm not repelled by a good professional one. However, not a few kids here in NZ get out the needle and ink-bottle at playtime/recess and do-it-(on)themselves. The serves, in my opinion, to establish (A) A lack of esthetic sense, (B) A lack of common sense, and (C) Handedness.
They often end up with one hand heavily tattooed, covering up youthful 'artwork.'
Then there are the individuals who have a full facial tattoo, in the traditional Maori fashion. I've heard it said that this denotes a wish to never be offered a job.....

bbc - check out this site Body Modification Extreme. Near the top you'll see a link for Scarification Photos/Stories. Follow that to find out insider's views (both good and bad) about branding and scarification.
WARNING: This site is very graphic, both in pictures and text. The pictures and the stories are not the antiseptic propaganda of someone writing about a subculture, they are done by the people IN the subculture. The site does, however, give you a very detailed, realistic idea of what these processes are like from the views of both people who give them and receive them.
