I really wish tattoos were acceptable in the workplace. It's a shame that I will get overlooked because of my piercings even if I am more qualified than someone else. You can always use make up to cover it as well, I think they have make up especially for tattoo coverage. A little tedious to put it on every time you have exposed skin, though. I'm just hoping I won't have a job where I need to keep it covered.

I understand his opinion on the subject, BUT feel his post was out of place as you did not ask for opinions on getting tattoos. You asked about certain types of tattoos that you are interested in seeing.

Just keep in mind that this site is a very diverse smoldering pot full of different ideals and opinions, but we are a family no matter how often we agree or disagree with one another.

I don't have any horse tattoos so I cannot help you in showing any examples from my end.

Hope you find what it is you are looking for.
I agree and disagree. What Joe said was flat out insulting, rude, and uncalled for. Didn't add anything to the conversation, and his opinion was not asked for in the post what so ever. It was incredibly intolerant. If he hadn't gotten a cyber boot to the rear already boy would I have something to say to him. The only reason he posted was to insult the poster.

I especially liked her last bit - What Suzie says about Sally says more about Suzie than Sally.

Edited to add: While I don't have any horse tattoos, I have three, and I still get the feeling of awe when I look at them today as I did when I first got them. I love each and every one of them, and I want to get more once I have the funds. I love them.

I want to get a a couple horse tattoos as-well. One will be a bust Gypsy she's the one I'm standing next to in my avatar I jokingly call her my equine girlfriend cause were so attached and bonded so well to each other. As for the other one is a bust of Zenyatta the famous race mare on my left bicep area. I have a huge horsey crush on her. Gypsy will be on my right shoulder blade. I've been researching tattoo artists to find one that good with tattooing horses.

While slightly off topic, which the thread went that way (seems they do with opinions), I have absolutely no problem with tattoos. My wife's got a bunch. I have none. She's got another in mind.

What I will say is, scars can have the same or even possibly a worse effect on the general public. I have some pretty wicked scars ( I'm talkin the ones that make tatted up bikers say holy crap), I call em my really expensive stories. But I see how they are looked upon, here the comments, still don't give a ponys terd. Heck I couldn't get em changed if I had a million dollars handy.

Guess what my point is, you're you. Tatts, scars, whatever. I really would discourage a spiderweb on your face, but, if you're buying, an adult, and of sound mind, get after it.

I wish I could find the video I saw on tumblr the other day... a nice little debate between for / against tattoos. The main argument against tattoos is that she thought they were offensive, graffiti on the body, and was sure that 100% of employers would think the same way.
Well, things are changing. My aunt is a nurse and has a couple tattoos that are visible depending what uniform she's wearing, I know another nurse who has them, I've seen lots of people in different offices with tattoos. I'm not saying they DON'T get in the way of your career choices, because they definitely can, but not nearly as much as they used to.

If I was ever going to get one it would be something tiny and sentimental because I'm scared of needles, but I don't think anybody should be actively discouraged from doing what they want to THEIR bodies. Do I think there should be age restrictions? Yes definitely. At sixteen my best friend got an 'awesome' tattoo that I feel she'll regret later in life but it wasn't my place to stop her.

While I don't have any horse ones, I have 12. I'm a hair stylist so there are really no limitations for me in my industry. Definitely place it where there will be no problems in your field, though. Most of mine are on my left arm, so that makes it quite hard to cover up! I plan to have a half sleeve completely done by the end of next month. People like to make money. Just be careful of who you get to do it, some people know they aren't skilled in portraits but choose to do them anyway.

To those who choose to be judgmental, I will tell you a little story. My son, who has both legs and 2 full sleeves, (that have won awards, BTW) was approached by a lady at a gas station. She looked at him and said "How could you DO that? Don;t you know your body is a temple?"

He looked her straight in the face and replied "And have you ever seen s temple that wasn't decorated?"

I cracked up. Lady shut up. It is a personal choice that affects noone else. I have only one, but out of my kids, all 3 have ink, the twins (a the one above and his sister) are the most inked of the group. Both my DIL's have a lot of it also. My only hang up is the $$ they spend on it, even with the "family discount" they get, since they go to the shows with their artist. Not many families have a family tattoo artist. Lol

My mother owns a salon which is where I work at right now, so I don't really have to worry about losing my job anytime soon. Heck, she has 3 tattoos and purple hair!

I'm hoping to do something with horses as my future career (a girl can dream, right?) and I have an internship at a stable in Florida called Valhalla Farms that I'm hoping will push me in the right direction. Afterwards, I'm going to MSU to double major in Business and Equine science, and maybe do something along the lines along training or nutrition. I'm young, and I know that may be likely to change, but I think I kind of figured out I just want to spend the rest of my life around horses. I think having my own business will allow me to do whatever I want with myself, and that's the goal I'm going to strive for. I could never be happy covering up my tattoos and taking out my piercings and I've spent enough years of my childhood being unhappy.
