Tattoos are a bit like Marmite, people tend to love them or hate them. Which side are you on, and why? Do you have a tattoo, or do you want one? What of? Post a photo below of yours or of one you would want!

In general, I'm not a fan of tattoos at all. I'd never get one personally, but I do see ones now and then which I really appreciate and think are beautiful. I love watching Tattoo Fixers, to see how they can go horribly wrong, but also how pretty they can make them. I think if I could have one which wasn't permanent and change it when I wanted, I would be more likely to get one, it's the permanent side of them which puts me off. I saw this elephant family tattoo on Tattoo Fixers which I thought was pretty awesome:

I'd never get one but I often think they look good on other people. So similar to you, I suppose.

I'm all for tattoos, both in terms of me myself getting one and I'm fine with others having them.

Some tattoos really are like a work of art but some do look cheap and tacky, I won't lie but if that's what the person wanted then as long as they are happy with it then that's all that matters.

I wouldn't ever get a tattoo on a highly visible place such as my knuckles, face or neck but would definitely get one done in the future. I've had designs planned out for a few for years but my panic attacks stop me from getting one done. I'm terrified I take a huge panic attack in the chair and then I leave the shop with it half done

Nope

99.9% of the time a tattoo is meaningless and looks horrible. unless your tattoo really has meaning and not just oh my mum died or I like butterflies.
It has to be something related to war or something really serious.
and also not on the hands face chest or legs.

most tattoos are horrible

Maybe I did, we know what my memory is like

Ooh pretty - science is awesome. How come? Want to continue the science theme instead?

I definitely prefer the idea of tattoos on other people instead of on myself, I just wouldn't suit them :lol:

I like tattoos and want some in the future.
I want sleeves on both arms and for it to blend into one on my upper back
Also going onto the backs of my hands.

Maybe on my chest too.

So yeah I like them and like it when others have them
