I would never get one, I am a christian, so it is against what my Lord says He likes. But many of His kids do have tats. He still loves them to bits.

Ironically, I just noticed I have a "fake" tattoo on the profile picture that shows up right here on Sparkpeople! I love fake tattoos that are realistic looking. I think the one I have in this pic is airbrushed and says "Bad girl." But what I love the most about them is being able to get rid of it when I'm tired of it.

In response to: "Plus I think that the body is something beautiful, and I have beautiful art on it."

I also think the body is beautiful (as it is) and does not need additional "permanent" art in the form of mostly dark, ulgy colors. There are other ways to commemorate important people or memories of events besides putting graphics of them on your body.

I don't judge those that get tattoos but I still think they are ugly on everyone so I don't necessarily try to look at ugly tattoos that much. I try to concentrate on faces more. I sure hope this fad does not expand to lots of people getting them on their face too. There is one young guy in my town with tattoos all over his face. They are all that greenish color. I think he might be a decent looking young man without them but he looks hideous and little children are scared when they see him.

I have three. The first was a birthday gift from my hubby. I had wanted to get one one for years and said if I didn't get one done by the time I turned 40 I never would. So he did his research and snuck my tattoo drawings to his chosen artist and surprised me a day before my birthday.

I don't regret any of them and would get more but I think I am finished for now.

I love tattoos, but I don't have any. If I did get one I would put a lot of thought into it so I wouldn't regret it. I don't regret any of my piercings, but I guess those are easier to get rid of...

No tattoo-I think it would be painful. My son has one. When I see people with tattoos ALL OVER, I think it is their choice but would not do it.

After reading some of the comments on here! Not in a bad way but I think its just so normal in my group of friends that I just figure that everyone has tattoos sometimes! Lol emoticon I am proud to say I have 27 tattoos... my first one I got in 2003 the day of my dads funeral. Each one is a memorial of a person or a moment of my life and I will never forget a single one. I will never let anyone judge me for them and if they do, why would I ever want someone negative in my life. So not a day goes by that I don't love all 27 pieces that decorate my skin and soul!

I got my first when I was 19, my second when I was 20, and my third when I was 21. All for my birthday, if you didn't catch the trend. They all represent very different stages in my life even though they were all a year apart. Plus I think that the body is something beautiful, and I have beautiful art on it.

These answers are fascinating. I started this thread because we recently hired a very pretty girl (early 20s) as a receptionist and our conservative office manager wants her to keep her tattoos covered. She cannot do this completely as they are on her wrists and ankles, but they are not too big. I'm not sure if she has a huge tattoo on her back like so many of the young girls do now.

I have no tattoos and would never get one, mainly because I would not want it to get faded or saggy like so many of the posters here have mentioned. One did mention that the tattoo ink they use now is better than 20 years ago, which I also found interesting. Maybe tattoos don't fade as badly now?

When I see a girl with tattoos and she's wearing something that only reveals (or covers) part of her tattoos, I still think it looks weird. Especially when it's a strapless or spaghetti strap "dress up" gown with beautiful jewelry or whatever (think celebrities on the red carpet). However I guess I'm going to have to admit to a double standard here because I do think tattoos on men are sexy!

Thanks to all who posted! emoticon

I don't have any, but a huge percentage of my friends have them, and every last one of them regrets it, even though all of them got small, subtle ones.

One has a sun on the back of her shoulder. It has faded with time to a sort of beige, and it's in a spot that's not compatible with the clothing styles she likes to wear now. When she was 20-something, she wore either strapless styles so the whole thing was visible or regular shirts that covered it. Now she's a little too mature for strapless, and if she wears spaghetti straps or a tank style, it shows enough that you notice it but not enough to see what it is. People always expect her to move the strap or sleeve so they can see the rest of it. That gets really old after thirty years. (And then they say, "Oh, yeah, I see. Interesting." because it just doesn't look very good anymore.)

Another got a logo of a sports team that she was wild about at the time, and they later got into some big cheating scandal that made her wish she wasn't associated with them. It's on the inside of her ankle, and it's tiny, not very noticeable at all, but she wears a bandage over it half the time.

Another friend has a whole bunch of small ones that she started getting when she was really young, and she's just sick of them, especially the earliest ones. She LOVED frogs when she was 18; she was pretty much over them by the time she was 21. Then it was the green M&M, and then butterflies, and so on. Admittedly, she's a person of short attention span, but she really wishes she hadn't started the whole thing. (That's my reason for not getting any; I get sick of the art on my *walls* and have to change it every year or so. I can't stand the thought of art on my body that I would have to look at forever, no matter how much style or my tastes change.)

And one of my best friends got hers just three or four years ago, after at least a decade of thinking about it, and already wishes she hadn't. She still likes the design, but they adopted kids shortly after she got it, and she just wishes she had the money to spend on them, instead. I told her, "but you just spent a few hundred dollars and you wear it *every day.* Other people spend more than that on a dress they wear twice and shove in the back of the closet." And her response was that seeing it every day was exactly the problem. She said every day she looks at it and thinks that if she'd waited, they could have bought the teenager a better band instrument or paid for dance lessons for the little one.

I don't really think it's anyone else's business what you do with your body, and social attitudes have changed enough that it's not likely to hurt your employment opportunities (assuming you don't get something huge and distracting, or obscene, or politico-religious.) But it's important to try to imagine yourself thirty years down the road and consider how that older version of you will feel about it.

I was at a big gathering with my baseball-tattoo friend and lots of our family members. Her nieces and nephews said, "Auntie, I didn't know YOU had a tattoo!" and she said, "Oh, that? That's my stupidity scar." The friend with the sun on her shoulder thought it was the funniest thing she'd ever heard, and now they both say it.

So I guess that's it. If you're going to get a tattoo, make sure it's an image that you'll never call a stupidity scar.

I am getting a tattoo of a dragonfly.
and here is why.
www.dragonfly-site.com/meaning-symbolize.h
tml

defeating self created illusions---for me, means, I always told myself I would never lose weight, I couldnt do it without intervention, but I have and I am still working on it.
living IN the moment----which for me means, I cant help what I have done wrong in my past, but I can move on from it, I cant see what tomorrow will bring, good or bad, so I can only face it when it comes.
and finally, the opening of ones eyes----We all sometimes walk around in the dark, we KNOW in our hearts what we need to do to improve, or change or overcome our problems.
But it takes really opening our eyes and facing it to make the needed changes.
And that the dragonfly lives such a short life, it is a reminder to live life to the fullest and try to be happy.

I only have 1 tattoo that I got in 1990. I don't regret it and in fact I would love to get a few more (and redo/coverup the one from 1990, it's faded and I'd like a bigger tat there anyway) I told myself that if I ever get below 200 lbs. I'm going to have my redo done as a gift to myself.

Even a couple years ago, I had a little dog named Rosie and when she died I was going to get a cherry blossom tattoo. She was a Japanese Chin and her show name meant Cherry Blossom even though her breeder called her Rosie.

I adored Rosie, but I am still glad that I talked myself out of it. I don't regret talking myself out of it.

Made it to my maintenance weight of 125 pounds.

Even though I have reached goal. I still don't know everything about weight loss.

I personally don't have any since I don't like them, but I won't judge anyone who has one since it's their body and not mine. I know someone who has a sleeve and the more money he is investing in it, the more he is not wanting to finish it.

I have 3, but none are large. I would personally not get a sleeve or a very large tat. All three are very personal to me and make me smile every time I look at them.

I have 2, one small on my shoulder the other larger on my ankle. They both have meaning to me, and I still like them. Luckily its more accepted to have them. Although, was husband was almost asked to leave one of his demos because the manager didn't like tattoos and you could see just a little bit of his on his arm. His sleeves were a little shorter that day.

Trust me, anyone with a tattoo knows what some people think of us (usually we are related to at least one or two people who hate tattoos).

I got my first one when I turned 40 but I'd been considering the design for over ten years. There are certain designs I would never ever get and I wouldn't get a full sleeve because I do like to be able to cover them at times. Mostly, if mine aren't showing, people are surprised that I have them and even some people who dislike tattoos tell me that mine "aren't too bad".

Not that I'm trying to convince anyone to get one because it isn't something to be done lightly but the inks they use now are much, much better than they were 20 years ago.

I'd say that I pretty much don't care what people think about them now and I have a hard time believing that I'm going to care much when I'm old either. If the tattoos sag, they will just be sagging along with everything else I've got!

When I was in my 20's I considered getting one. And now that I am not in my 20's. I am really glad that I didn't and I don't regret that I didn't

Made it to my maintenance weight of 125 pounds.

Even though I have reached goal. I still don't know everything about weight loss.

Nope, because I don't have any... and won't get any.

In response to: "Lots of people in this thread are glad they don't have any - that's fine - but this thread is specifically about those people who do...so your responses are not providing any value here."

I find lots of value in opinions of people who choose not to get tattoos.

In fact I think this is a good way for those with lots of tattoos considering getting more, to hear real and somewhat anonymous view points about how they are looked upon by potential employers, etc. Not sure if should add my opinion since it is of "no value" but here goes anyway. I don't have any and will never get any. I find them unattractive and I don't care how talented the artist is. The colors are usually ugly and the designs change and deteriorate with age and look far worse than they originally did.

I have one, and it's awesome. Not sure though if I'd have another one. It took years to find the right one to go with the first time.

Lots of people in this thread are glad they don't have any - that's fine - but this thread is specifically about those people who do...so your responses are not providing any value here.

It's a personal choice for a tattoo - good tattoos are not cheap, and cheap tattoos are not good

Don't have any, never wanted any (I personally think they are not attractive at all, but that's just my opinion), and I often wonder what some of them will look like on people when they are over 70 and all wrinkled.

I have 5-6 (depending on how you count them) and I have no regrets. I sometimes wish I could move my first little flower but I got it with friends so it has nice meaning.

No regrets. Probably not done yet either.


But I also always tell people not to rush into anything. Find a great artist and be willing to pay for the work.

I can show my tattoos at my job but I wouldn't show them during an interview just because it could put people off. Also, mine are all "pretty" and not likely to offend.

I have two small old tats done by a friend when he was just beginning to learn the art...they were done with homemade instruments...I would love to have them removed (or covered).

I have one medium one that was supposed to be paired on my boyfriend at the time who never did get it so it was not my first choice but I don't really mind it.

If I could go back I probably wouldn't have any and I remember a woman telling me 25 years ago never to get any and if I ever did to be sure they were hidden from sight in normal dress as it could hinder employment opportunities...my how times have changed...in my profession I find it kind of gross and unsightly to see tats all over peoples chests and necks and arms...the age of the populace that I (we) deal with think that girls with tats are lesbians or criminals as they come from a generation when only military and prisons had men with tats.

I've also have friends who had gotten tats as young adults and are now paying a high price to have them removed.

No, I have one tattoo and it's very special to me. I will get another one, eventually.

No. I have a medium-ish one on my back that I probably wouldn't choose now, but I still like it. The one on my hip that I got last year is a book quote from a passage that I've been in love with since I was 15, so I doubt I'll ever regret that one.

Nope. Some of my older ones (15plus years) could use some touch ups, but I love every single one.

You'll never regret the workout you do, only the one you don't.
