As someone who does not have nor has any intention of getting a tatoo could one of you (preferably someone who has a tatoo) please explain the attraction of getting one done?
I am intrigued as to why people wish to modify their physical appearance in this manner espeically given the fact that unless you have alot of money for removal surgery they are permenant. Results from removal surgery are a mixed bag and it is rare to see skin restored to as it was prior.
I've heard of people getting union tattoos... Having the other person's name tattooed on their body instead of getting a wedding ring.
I'm not sure how it'd work at the ceremony, though... "Do you have the needle?"
When I was in NZ I was going to get a Maori tattoo, but I'm a pussy so I chickened out.
The attraction for me is to turn a part of your body into an artwork.
Tatoos were once a symbol of the working classes that became a fashion statement through various public icons sporting them. Now they are common as anything and most of them look shite.
I cringe every time that I see Beckham - is this guy really our national icon?
Woodgate has also had some weird writing on his back and lots of it, almost like a novel. I mean WTF?
When I go out round the town on Saturday night it seems that almost 50% of people have them.
I want to get one done, but only a small one on my lower back. It'll be a memorial to someone special to me that died.
I don't see the attraction of whole-body tats or loads and loads of them, they look really tacky, IMO.
The ones that seem to be popular with the girls are the "angel wings" on the shoulder blades or a similair design on the lower back. Problem is these are getting so common that they no longer have the "wow" factor.
I once saw a girl with her nickname tatooed on her lower back. Obviously placed there so any one night stand can always remember her name during from behind.
I want to get a tattoo of a barcode.
I might also get a twisty tribal design that stretches from my shoulders to my toes
