    I've seen some full body art that looks fantastic, and some small single tats that look like crap. It really depends on the "canvas" and the quality of the artist. For me, although I don't currently have one, I wouldn't be adverse to a single band on my upper arm.

    Can't help but laugh to myself every time I see the currently popular tramp stamp above some girls rear end. Unlike a fine wine these do not get better with age.

    Got my first and only tat in high school. Got stabbed in the leg by a fine felt-tip pen during a fight. True story.
    I've got nothing against tattoos, just never been so passionate about a thing that I want to pay to have it permanently etched into my epidermis. Maybe someday that will change though.

    I hate them. I'm 52, and when I was 15-25, the only people that had them were old sailors , soldiers or bikers - most of whom got them when they were drunk.

    But the biggest reason I hate them was because of my high school bus driver. He had a single tattoo on his arm, and it said "3827732". This was his number from his time in a concentration camp. The Nazis would tattoo their prisoners at which time they became identified only by their number.

    Another reason - I'm working at a company in 1992. West coast. One day, they offer to do free company logo tattoos. Put the first Nazi story with this, and you've essentially branded yourself as a worker for that company for life. Even worse, they had a line of people doing it. I left that company within a year - it was my wake-up call to get out of there.

    To me, it's tattoos are just stupid.

    My wife's grandmother had one of those number tattoos on her arm. When she was little they told her it was a phone number in case she ever got lost.

    No one thinks before doing it. I'd love to see some of these folks when they hit 70, especially the women. Their body art will look one of those distorted mirrors you see at a carnival. :lol:

    Must be an age thing. I'm 52, no tats, not planning on getting any, and I don't find them attractive on others.

    My mother got her first tattoo at 60. She now has 5 or 6 of them.

    I passionately support your right to do what you want with your body, so long as you passionately support my right not to like it ;)

    They're not for me, but I think they can be art on others.

    Odd to think, obviously some sort of pre-selection, but I've never been with a woman who had a tatoo.

    I didn't see a poll, but I don't have any tattoos. I once ran A/V at a tattoo art convention and have seen some beautiful (and some ass-ugly) tatts.
    Same here. Unfortunately, I find myself single again, but I've always been very selective. I've never been with a woman who had a tatt, never got an std and never got hepatitis-C from tattooist's needle.

    My late girlfriend and I were at the bar in a local restaurant when we noticed the bartender, who was wearing shorts and a sleeveles top, seemed to have several tatts. I casually asked her how many tatts she had, and, much to my delight, she proceeded to proudly show us 'most' of them. :D

    It took me a while to wipe the grin off my face, much to my gf's dismay! ;)

    Wife's got two, I've got none. Before her, dated several women with tats. Not a big deal.

    No tramp stamps though.
