Big Dumb Tattoos- anybody regretting it?
Posted by: Steve G.
Date: January 26, 2021 05:38PM
I see more and more tattoos that are getting larger and perhaps stupider on TV etc.

These include people who have apparently decided to inscribe the entire first chapter of romance novels on various body parts.

Here's the question: Now that enough time has passed, do you know anyone who regrets subscribing to the low art of extensive tattoos?

I've seen some truly beautiful ones and many hopelessly garbage ones, but the majority fall somewhere between those two extremes.

One good rule of thumb is get something original and unique, not the same ones that were put out by "Sailor Jerry" generations ago that we've all seen a million times, ESPECIALLY not that stupid and badly drawn black panther that appears to be clawing it's way up whatever body part it is tattooed on. Unironic stick figures and crooked, badly-placed, misspelled words are no-nos as tattoos as well.

Personally I too HATE text tattoos such as the aforementioned novel chapter because to me if you can't say it with an image instead of text then it doesn't need to be a tattoo, but I realize I'm swimming against the tide on that one. The one exception I've seen to that rule was the inscription from The One Ring as an armband.

I see white trash

I see other races than white with ugly tattoo.

Also a lot whites of all ages with dumb tats.

Which includes most tats.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Interesting topic. With all the stories on TV about people getting their vaccines, shown with their sleeves rolled up exposing their body art, I've been tempted to start a poll as to who here had one...or more. I'd be curious as to the percentages of the population with them, how many, how large, demographic breakdown, etc. One of those things I just don't get, but it seems I'm in the minority.

NO mention of the 40%+ likely increase in the chance of getting a free case of hepatitis with that ink? facepalm

I doubt you'd get many answers because, for a forum that tends to be exceedingly liberal on some subjects, this one is almost as conservative if not outright judgmental as my grandmother's WCTU quilting circle would have been about tattoos.

Son has one [his name in Mayan glyphs, a tribute to his heritage]. It is just an armband.
Daughter in law has two - a Harry Potter symbol and a small flower. I see both as short-sighted and will be regretted as she grows up
Wife wants one, but I think it is more talk than action
I cannot think of anything I want permanently inked on my body.

A friend had a rooster in a noose on his calf. He said he always wants a cock hanging below his knee. I will say that got a chuckle.

Unfortunately, a very common human failing is being judgmental.

I suspect it's part of human DNA or some eons old natural behavior that has to be overcome like so many other foibles, and that doesn't happen for everybody.

People confuse offering an opinion, often welcome, for an excuse be be judgmental, usually never welcome.

It goes hand in hand with the desire to be unnecessarily disparaging when couching judgement as opinion.

Maybe it's the latent or not-so latent bully that resides in so many peoples psyche.

There's no Star Trek future where we all just get along.

Mankind will not evolve to that level for social consciousness, of consideration for others.

It's left to individuals, many of whom step up, and many don't.

So where tats are concerned, if ya got 'em fine, if ya don't fine.

I don't like tats, and I never will.

My choice affects only me.

After hearing about the Bitcoin person who forgot their password and is in danger of losing hundreds of millions, that might be a good reason for one.

I was tempted to get one instead of wearing a medic alert bracelet/necklace as I noted in a past thread. You folks provided hilarious suggestions of where to place that tattoo.

I do have three tattoos and am looking forwards to using the line “If I get to know you better, maybe I’ll show you my tattoos.” In truth, they are unremarkable indexing dots for making sure the gigantic machine sent the radiation to the right place.

Tats are big with the younger crowd, not so much with baby boomers.

IF I were ever to get one, it would be the Tai Chi symbol. Not sure where I would put it — probably an upper arm, where it could be kept hidden as needed. Over my heart would be nice, but my hairy chest precludes putting anything there that I want to be able to see. Maybe the back of my neck...



It is what it is.

True. I'm no less guilty than anyone else, I'm just pulling in the other direction. The clean-cut, no tats, no facial hair, always buffed and polished to a high sheen business types are the ones that creep me out to the point of purposeful avoidance.

I wonder how many people are smart enough to try a henna (temporary) tattoo BEFORE they fully commit?
