So...tattoos have jumped every shark known to man

At Disneyland.

18-80 years old -- 6-7+ on every third person and in every place imaginable.

Not sure how it's still a thing?

Trend approaches overload. I predict tattoo removal to be the biggest industry starting in, oh, the early 2020's.

The other day I almost tripped over a young man with neck and face tattoos, teardrops under one eye, etc. I thought, great.... gang member, and stiffened up preparing for the obligatory hip check to the curb.

He politely side stepped me, and said "Excuse me, sir".

I guess sometimes the print on the cover does not reflect the prose inside.

I've rarely, almost never, seen a tattoo on someone, that looked good. I'm beginning to form the impression that they've become cliche.

Earlobe stretching might actually get some attention today.

Clothes, hair, car, phone, pierce, tattoo, etc. All ways to express your individuality. What once was unusual and distinctive is now added to the lengthening list of fashions.

For my body, I agree, but I've dated multiple people with them and for their bodies, the art looked quite nice.

All ways to express your individuality.

Except two of those are permanent and semi-permanent.

I don't care for any ink or the body as a canvas.

Not that there isn't well done ink, but when I doesn't wash off…

I thought it cliché long ago.

Who knew Mike Tyson was onto something.

The earlobe stretching actually creeps me out.

But that's life in the big city.

I have quite a few but it wasn't something I got into as part of the more recent trend. I have a few going back to the early 80s when tattoos were still big taboos. My most recent is about 5 years old. Largest one covers my right arm from wrist to shoulder. It's just been part of my creative expression for over 30 years and they all serve as reminders of my own journey. I have not a single regret and will likely get more in the future. If you get a tattoo as part of a trend, or to try to impress someone, or just because all your friend have one, you're an idiot.

I will note that I keep contemplating getting the chemical symbol for stainless steel over the surgical scar on my right arm. Or perhaps a recyclable symbol.
Then again... my late mother in law's most favorite joke ever was this one:

An elderly woman goes to her doctor for an exam. The doctor asks about the letters tattooed on her left mammary. She proudly declares "It says Let's Boogie ! "

The doctor smiles and says "Madam, I'm afraid now it says Let's Booooooooooogie !"

I still giggle when I remember her bright eyes dancing, and her german accented voice saying "Booooooooooogie !"

Every once in a while I see one that looks really good. Once in a GREAT while. A VERY great while. Most of them look like they were drawn with crayons by a 1st grader (and not a talented one)... dark grey-green crayons, coloring outside the lines, with crap art work.

They were cliche 20 years ago... now they're just stupid.

The only ones I've seen that were actually NICE were using bright colorful inks, NONE of that crappy grey-green masquerading for black ink, on highly detailed designs that obviously took a great deal of both design and execution effort.
Even then, I'll bet that full sleeve isn't going to look very good in 40 years when she's bouncing her grandkids on her knee.

That reminds me of Petro's sig- You're unique, like everybody else.

It's all a choice, just not mine.

It's an individual decision.. I'll skip it.

What bothers me are the number of 14-15 year olds in my school with tattoos. There is no way a child should be allowed to make that type of decision. Then you see the parents and all is explained.

And that's what makes it both funny, and sad... Not only the person GETTING the tat was too dumb to know the difference, but the person DOING the tattoo was either too dumb, or malicious, to stop it.

Same here. I have none but the journey aspect resonates with me. Never considered one until a friend I admire said she was considering something discreet. We might get them one day to show a bond, or won't, and it doesn't matter either way really.

No need.

[techcrunch.com]

Ephemeral is developing tattoo ink designed to disappear after a year

Tattoo inks today are permanent because of the fact that the dye molecules are too big for your body’s immune system to take away,” explains co-founder Anthony Lam. “By using smaller molecules, we’ve encapsulated them inside this spherical structure that’s big enough that your immune system doesn’t take it away. But when you remove it, it essentially eats away one of the components and the dye molecules are flushed out.”


...

There are other tats that fade after two weeks.

Show your girl that you love her... today. And then the next girl. And then the next girl... and if you plan it right you won't have a mark on you for Christmas dinner with mom and dad none the wiser.

An artist friend of mine does some tattoos on the side, mostly his own original art or an interpretation of something else, no pattern book at his house. He's asked me a couple times if I wanted to get one, and I said, "No, I've got enough scars that they won't have any trouble IDing my corpse."

I got to meet this guy one day.
[community.coneyisland.com]
i was waiting with my car in NYC until the street-cleaning time was done—you can park if you stay with your car, but get a ticket if you leave it alone. My daughter lived around the corner and i called her to come relieve me while I went to her place to relieve myself. Then this guy pulls up and gets out of his car, starts talking to another guy near me and I'm like "Omigod I'm going to leave my daughter out here with this guy?" When Vanessa came up she looked right past me and said "Eak, how you doing?" He's like "Vanessa! long time no see!"

I'm not into getting one. Never was too keen on having a tattoo, even though I have an experienced artist in the family who does it for a living. He's quite good, and has offered to do one for me for free, but I always decline. I don't mind seeing them on other people, but for some reason having one myself doesn't thrill me one bit.

We had a family gathering a few years ago, and I see one of my nephews with long "sleeve" tattoos on both arms. This shocked me, because he's got a pretty damn important job with the FBI and I was thinking tattoos were inappropriate for the position he held. I called him over to ask him about them, and he grabbed an almost invisible edge and showed me that they actually WERE sleeves! Fake tats you could roll right off your arm, but looked very realistic.

Best of both worlds, I guess.

Oh, and seeing that Jimmy Marley tat always makes me laugh!
