For one thing they aren't particularly attractive on women...

But it's more than just that. Not even so many men used to have them either. Seems like everyone has at least one now. There was a time when they weren't for cutesy designs, but were an important symbol to identify oneself as part of a group, be it anything from the Green Berets to the Hell's Angels. Getting a tattoo just because it's so popular now seems kind of stupid to me. :uhm:

Well it's good in a way and also bad in a way. You see that it means that tatoo's are more aceptable now(My left arm is pepered with it btw)there used to be a time when you can't attend a good school or can't get a good job because of having tatoos this happened to me during the late nineties. but now that they have become more acceptable as a form of body art the tolerance for people with tatoos increased for the most part, The bad way is that some kids just put tatoo's on without the slighest concept of what it really means to have one other than trying to look "cool" or "cute" this is stupid. and I agree on you on that part.(Blame it on the NBA players)During my time it used to be the highest form of rebellion againts your parents or society in general. During my days if you had a Tatoo you are already judged as a Deviant. even up to now in some provincial areas of my country old people look at me strage when they see me. I care not they do not control the very air I breath.

I'm considering getting a tattoo. If anywhere, I'd have it on my upper back. And if I do get one, it's gotta be tribal.

I don't think I could ever get one. But for most people, its still a way for everyone who see you to the the message "I'm the Rebel, And there's nothing you people can do about it."

I got no problem with them, to each his or her own eh?

I see a lot of girls with the tramp stamps nowadays though, dont find them all that attractive, but I'm not gonna go with someone just because they have a tattoo, bit of a weak reason. I just dont like it when they're just covered in tattoos, never understood the reason why one would dump so much cash into something like that, oh well.

I've thought about getting a tattoo before, but couldn't decide what I would want to have put on me that I would have to look at everyday of my life.

People at my uni here have tattoos too. I asked a girl about it [she was really pretty at the beginning of the semester, then she put on 30lbs, got a tongue stud, some earrings and a tattoo on her lower back] and she was real easy going with it like it didn't matter, like it was just a quick decision. I was raised real strict about "dirty" things like tattoos, drinking, etc but I think I might get a tattoo if I could get through the idea of a series of needles piercing my skin repeatedly. I should ask how much they cost, etc.

I was thinking of getting a tatoo of my logo (basically a greek "fi" where the I goes through the O and then everything ornated with two flags on top of the O with a red cross on a white background) on my shoulder...

The attractiveness of tattoos is a matter of opinion. You see nothing in them, but there are others who like them. That's why they get them.

I'd consider getting one, but I don't know what I would want, and where I would want it.
