Title: Tattoos
Post by: shredc0re on June 12, 2012, 07:50:35 PM
Let's have a debate about tattoos!

What's your opinion on tattoos?
Do you want to get some later, if yes, what do you ink?
Do you already have tattoos?

Let's go guys!

I dunno why, but I can't stand tattoos, there is just something about them that churns my stomach.
I guess if I was dating a girl with one, I wouldn't mind if it was small and not -that- noticeable, but if it was a full arm of them.....urrkk.

Why don't you like them?

I love tattoos.. I think your body is a canvas and tattoos are just paintings on the canvas.

Ive got 5 and I want a full arm sleeve but I cant justify spending over a grand on a tattoo. My mrs has one on the bottom of her back and I dont mind that but I wont let her get anymore, women with tattoos on their arms make me bork. Who would want to see that in their wedding photos?

No thanks, I'd rather not. I wouldn't have any in sight either, like on my hands, I don't feel like I have to show mine off to the world. Plus you can't get many jobs if you have visible tattoos.

If you get tattoos to look cool or for a fashion statement or something, you're just looking for attention and that's wrong in my book. Get something that means something to you, I have my daughters name.
Title: Re: Tattoos
Post by: shredc0re on June 13, 2012, 12:16:02 PM
I agree with your statement about not getting tattoos as a fashion statement because that is indeed attention whoring. A tattoo has to have a specific meaning.

Unproffessional?

That's the problem with alot of people they show more interest about the looks then the skills of people.

You see, that's why you don't have them on show ;)

I'm deadly serious at work and I have tattoos, I'm like a slave driver at times. I do fuck around a lot outside of work though, I'll admit that.

So getting a tattoo shows you fool around? I can give you a lot of examples of people with tattoos that are taken more serious than 'the average person'. No offense, but what you're pointing out is that people judge other people by how they look, not by who they are.

That's the problem with alot of people they show more interest about the looks then the skills of people.
That's exactly what I think.

I'm saying from personal experience how everyone I knew with tattoos were not serious workers. But then again, this is America. Different cultures, diilfferent opinios

Yeah, it's probably different for Europe.. I know more 'normal' people that aren't serious workers than people with tattoos.

Darth Maul is indeed said to be covered with tattoos (hence the red/black skin)

I'm getting a few tattoos to remember my childhood (pokemon, fersure) and something with the sentence "the only thing left to lose is time".

So you are using the southern region of Belgium, bearing in mind that Belgium is an extremely small place with a population of little over 11 million in total, as a basis for the entire tattooed population of the world?
Title: Re: Tattoos
Post by: BloodcatNS on June 14, 2012, 02:58:15 PM

Hard data, my good man. I can't look at any city that's far from my place. So where's the statistics?

That, and your logic is a bit flawed there. Don't you consider the fact that other countries/cities/places have different traditions and cultures from the rest? Some have tattoos just for the sake of it, while others have meanings in them, while others see it as vandalizing the body. And you don't have a proof that those who have tattoos are "more serious" or "more smart" or "more" anything than those who haven't.

Also,

(http://images.wikia.com/masseffect/images/6/6d/Jack_Mugshot.png)

This is a female. Fictional, yes. But still.


OT
I don't have anything against people who have tattoos. But for some reason, it makes them more intimidating and difficult to approach to. But of course, I've been proven wrong in a few instances. It's just that those "wannabe gangsters" are often the people who put on tattoos, making it easy for the general population to stereotype people with marking on their bodies.

Post by: iluvfupaburgers on June 16, 2012, 05:23:28 PM
i think tattoos are ok. i dont like it when people get them just for getting one. ive always thought since tattoos are so permanent, they have to have a meaning for you. i actually want to get one but havent because of this, and because i want to be more in shape too.


i think its retarded to say people are jokers just for having tattoos. its stupid. and unproffessional to discriminate people based on looks intead of how they are as people.


some relatives got a tattoo of my cousin that died. they got a number 50 because he used to do motocross and was #50 in competitions. i dont see anything about fooling around here when they are trying to remember him

I'm still alive! It didn't hurt at all until the last 30 minutes, by then my arm was sore as fuck. We got most of the top of my arm done, I'm booked in again in a month to get my forearm done too.

EDIT: The guy has posted a pic of part of it on his facebook wall. This is just a small part around the back, I'll post a full picture tomorrow when I take the cover thing off it and wash it.

My tattoo guy just drew me a picture of a evil humanoid octopus thingy holding onto a skull, we're going to put it on my forearm on Sunday.

Also I'm getting my other arm done with a Norse Mythology theme when I get back off holiday. I'm thinking Odin, vikings, maybe a wolf. It will look fucking awesome I reckon.

Today was my day for getting my sleeve finished. Unfortunately I'm still acting like a dumb teenager and was up all night partying as per usual. I got 4 hours in though after I was sober enough to drive and olly the octopus is now finished. I'll update with pics when my tattooist posts them on his page later.

No, it's not a typical tattoo. I can work around it (which I probably won't), but anything to try to extend it would make it lose meaning.
