Tattoos...

So, what's the consensus on tattoos? Are they cute or not? Do you have any? Would you date someone who has tattoos or no?

I'll go...I LOVE tattoos. I have three, and I'm working on my 4th. I'm hoping that I'll be getting it this summer. As for on other people, I love them! I think they're definitely cute, and they give a good view into who the person is by looking at their tattoos.

Re: Tattoos...

I have a few sak yant tattoos that were done by hand with bamboo (like this). Not sure if I would get any other kind. As long as they are tastefully done I don't mind tattoos on other people at all.

Re: Tattoos...

LOVE tattoos! I have 5 so far, with all of my spine being the largest. I adore them on other people, granted they are tasteful and mean something to them.

Re: Tattoos...

I have 4 myself, and have mostly dated other people with tattoos. Obviously that has nothing to do with why I dated them, but I do find them attractive if they're well done. In general I think less is more though.

Re: Tattoos...

They're great, as long as they're symbolic, and neither meaningless nor something too meaningful, like a name. I have one, and I love it, and I'd love to get more. If my partner had one, I'd like that a lot.

I love tattoos. They can be really cool but they can also be really terrible if people aren't careful. I do plan on getting at least one though.

Re: Tattoos...

I would love symbolic, meaningful tattoos! I think they are beautiful! As soon as I turn 18, I'll get tattooes! I've already picked some designs that I want! :P

Those tattoos are awesome


I love tattoos. I have 4 and working on getting my fifth. I think they are super attractive.

Re: Tattoos...

tattoos are nice and can look nice, i certainly want some but they will have meaning. im just not personally a fan of the 'i got it because it looked nice when i was 16' then every week change its meaning, when in fact it doesnt have a meaning they just got it young lol

but it wouldnt be a deal breaker if i liked her, nothing would unless she was mean

Re: Tattoos...

Im waiting to get older soon so I can get one! Sure I'll date someone with tattoos...except if the tattoo is on their face. Thats just kinda weird & not thoughtful cuz how will you get jobs?

Re: Tattoos...

Would definitely date someone with tattoos, obviously not sole based just on the fact they have tattoo/s. Doesn't matter if they're meaningful or just a pretty sweet design. Only thing that would probably put me off is if they got a tattoo when they were young JUST for the sake of getting one.

Re: Tattoos...

I've got one, meaningful to me, sketched it up myself and had a family member who is in the tattoo business throw it on... It's a nautical star with gears and wires on the inside.

I definitely think they tell someones story/personality and would date someone with tattoos.

Re: Tattoos...

Personally, I would not get a tattoo. I just don't want one and it would be a terrible choice for my career. I have nothing against them and would have no problem dating someone with a tattoo though
