though I don't agree with how Joe made his opinion known, I don't see why I should respect what you do to your body. Personally, I don't think much of young folks tattooing. Not that they are trollops (cute word). I simply see a lot of folks who do so much tattoing that I can no longer see THEM for the requirement that I see their tattoos. Of course, it's your choice, but I cannot say I respect it. I mean, I wouldn't have said anything, but I just thought it strange that you feel others should respect what you do with your body. Accept, yes, respect, h m m ... maybe not so.

Maybe a better word for that would be judge? Tiny?

I understand both sides.

I don't personally have too many super FLASHY tattoos but people will still see ink on me and say "trash" without knowing the reasons behind it.

There's a guy in my company. Full sleeves on both arms and full back...you can't see them with his ACUs on and he is by far the nicest most proffesional man I have met with a sorting wife and a lovely son.

He used to own a bar before the army and the other day we had a little platoon beach get together...I literally saw a woman grab her daughter and drag her away from him when we walked passed...and what was she staring at? His arms.

I have my tat design chosen, but I can't decide where to put it. I want it in a somewhat visible place, but not so much that it can't be covered when needed.
Brad is rather against tats and so doesn't want it ruining a 'romantic place' so not breast, butt, etc.

I'm, thinking shoulder blade, but I like inner wrist too. I've thought about the tat for years, so I should probably think about the placement for some time too.

Thing is, at least for my family and the tats they have-they really don't care if you respect them or not. They feel that if you can't, that is your issue, not theirs. It doesn't affect them at all. Each have their own reasons for every tat they have.

I had the idea to get a tattoo, even as an "old lady". I am an avid scuba diver and underwater photographer who loves octopus. I envisioned an octopus with his tentacles wrapped around my ankle. However, learning that this is one of the most painful places to get a tattoo has kept that from ever becoming reality.

When it comes to the ever present opinions of Joe....ignore feature is your friend....

I had an aunt that used to say she had a tattoo on her breast.

"It used to be a short stemmed rose .. now it's a long stemmed rose.."

I never knew if she really had one!

Lol

I often encounter people who walk the long way around me with sideways glances or even demonstratively turn their noses down at me when my half sleeves are visible. I've received excellent customer service while covered up, only to be treated completely differently by the very same people when I returned to pick up my purchase with tattoos visible. It doesn't matter that I am a professional business woman with two degrees, a good job and a happy family - many people make their judgements with their eyes first. I'll even admit to doing so on occasion, though I try to remain open minded enough to ammend my first opinion if need be ;)
