    Don't get me wrong, even though I don't have any tattoos I see a lot of really cool artwork that I can appreciate but why is it so prominent for guys to tattoo themselves up with symbols of death and evil like Skulls, Grim Reapers, Dragons, Demons, Satan etc?? I'm just curious, never could figure it out:realcrazy:

      I don't get it either, never have, and not a fan of tattoos, but to each their own, just like your car, its your skin do what you want with it.

        I don't get are the "sleeves" of tattoos where you can't tell what it all is. It's just one big mess.

              Tattoos are now a fashion statement similar to long hair & bell-bottom jeans, just more permanent. I personally DO NOT like anything satanic. Seriously, do you want to explain to God why you have a devil tattooed on you when you go to heaven?

                    Well all I can say about this is...Tatoos are Forever. And the more one has then the more when they get old, those Tats will look like a blob of ink and not resemble what they once depicted. And I also have a dislike for a gal that has them all over and is an attractive gal to boot. I just don't get it. Never got one in my 34.5 years in the AF either...cr8crshr/Bill:screwy::screwy::screwy::usflag::usflag::usflag:

                      I worked with an older guy (he's about 60 now) a few years ago. He is the spitting image of Mr Squidward (from Spongebob Squarepants)...in fact people still call him Squiddy. Anyway, he has a bunch of tattoo's on his arms...from a mis-spent youth. Being the skinny wrinkly old SOB that he is, the tattoo's don't look that sharp anymore. One day our Sales rep said to him..."Did you get your tattoo's drawn on with crayons?"

                      We all laughed...well, except for one guy. :lol:

                      BTW...he is an alcoholic...probably explains the wrinkled old look. He was always hiding his beer in his desk at work.....old Tony, what a character. I came in the office one day after visiting customers. The Eagles were playing on the radio "Lying Eyes". I started singing over it "Tony, you can't hide your Lion Ice"

                      His favourite drink for when you have to drive home - very low alcohol content...(trouble is he would do about 4 before getting in his car)

                        I like tattoos....on other people. LOL
                        I have to agree with most on this subject, tat's have gotten more and more the "Thing" today. It's funny that this has such a following with the gen x and millennials thinking it's cool...just wait until your in your 50's-60's and that bad assed eagle starts to look like a beat to shit buzzard. I myself have enough scars on my hide from living life, no need for self mutilation.

                          The new novelty for me is a girl without tattoos. The other day at the gym a girl in a white bikini took a dip in the hot tub and not a tat to be found (no where uncovered anyway). However, after flirting with her a minute I noticed her tongue was pierced.

                          Edit: Here is the rest of the story. I was a Spanish major at San Diego State University and the bikini girl turned out to be a (Mexican) gym employee whose task it was to wipe clean the exercise equipment. I have always wanted to tutor English, so I gave her a book to study and wrote my phone number on the inside cover.

                          Weeks later she called me on my cell phone and asked me (in Spanish) what I was doing. I told her I was eating lunch (alone) at Hometown Buffet. Never heard back from her after that. Much later, I found her wiping down a machine at the gym and she told me she had gotten married.

                                Tattoos simply say "look at me". With age, most tattoos turn to a blur and those that got them regret it.

                                  for his pleasure, lol. A solid conversation starter. You can ask her how effective it is on the tip of your bippy.

                                      Tatoo's used to be for Marines and Sailors. Now, my grand-daughters are starting to have little one's that I can see on their ankle, shoulder, etc. Not a fan of tattoo's.

                                        The ones I don't get are the girls that have an illegible paragraph of cursive writing at an odd angle and not centered on their chest or under one boob on the rib cage.
