I'm not turned off by them, but I've yet to meet someone who had a decent (read: meaningful or clever) tattoo. That's not to say there aren't lots of beautiful ones, though. However, to me, tattoos are like bumper-stickers, except permanent, and I just don't see the point.
Now, body markings like like tribal scarring or Maori tattoos are a different story.
I'm Maori, and yeah it's painful, lol. The one's you're thinking of are Moko, and they're pretty much carved in. If you flinch or w/e you're called a pansy (i paraphrase) and no tattoo for you. Some of my older relatives had chin tattoos.
Diana Renata and I were kind of "double dog daring" one another to post a rear end shot, she when she gets to her size 6 and me when I get to my size 8. I have had this pair of size 8 leather pants in my closet for ages. Internet purchase, wrong size etc. But I decided to keep them as my "challenge pants" to myself. Today, they actually buttoned and I can still breath. They will be even more comfortable with 13 less pounds on me. But since I promised Diana I would post this............... Photo on 2011-05-1.jpg
I've wanted a tattoo since I was a kid, admiring my Grandpa's old and faded four from his years in WWII. Alas, I am needle phobic and somehow doubt I'll ever be able to sit for that. But I like admiring others
@ Spen230 wow you look so good looking and yes miles younger.I would not worry about the salt and pepper, don't know any women who are bothered by it, in fact I think it suits you. Esp like the pic in the shirt with the thin blue stripes - losing all that fat=cheekbones unleashed!!
I'm a big fan of tattoos, my hubby is not, so I think the one I have will end up being my only one. I think it qualifies as meaningful, it is the written music to my favorite song (Amazing Grace, got me through some tough times), shaped into a heart, with a small representation of my son's footprint "walking" in it, with room for more baby footprints in the future (I hope).
@ Em. Can you see it yet? I don't know what a photobucket is, sorry.
@TigerLily My 49 year old leather clad professorial ass thanks you.
@ Grumpy Put yer tongue back in yer face.
@ Twibble Thank you very much.
