    Default Et tu, Tattoo?

    Getting tattoos is obviously much more common nowdays than it once was - remember when Dennis Rodman was considered strange for having so many tattoos, now it's rare to find the NBA player who doesn't have any. It also seems that at least 25% of everyone under 30 seems to have at least one as well.

    Now while I personally don't have any tattoos, it doesn't bother me that other guys have them. However, this picture of Angelina Jolie getting yet another tattoo (a large picture of a tiger) on a body that I consider to be just fine the way it is without any extra skin 'decorations' made me wonder when enough is enough:



    So naturally, this leads to the following questions:
    • Do you have any tattoos, and if so, how many and of what?
    • If you don't have any tattoos now, do you think you would ever have it done in the future?
    • Does your significant other (wife, girlfriend, both ) have any tattoos? Would it bother you at all if a girl you met on a blind date had a large number of tattoos on her body? (And no, I don't mean if the girl was Angelina Jolie )


    Hey, we have to have something off-beat to discuss during these summer months as we're waiting for trades and FA signings to happen! (Where's Twes and PFFL when you need them...)

    I have two tattoos.

    A celtic sun on my right upper bicep.

    A Norse mythological symbol (Odin's horn) on my upper left bicep.

    My wife doesn't have any, but it wouldn't bother me if she wanted to get one as long as it was discrete (as are mine).

    I've got a "tribal" design on my right arm that I got on my 18th birthday (courtesy of my dad). As long as I am not wearing a sleevless shirt, you can't see it. I'll put up a pic of it later.

    My fiancee doesn't have any, but I wouldn't mind if she did as long as they were easily hidden.

    Nope. I don't have any.

    I guess I'm pretty much neutral on them. Don't like them, but I don't look at somebody funny 'cause they have one. Different strokes for different folks.

    Like Jimmy says "It's just a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling".
    You're caught up in the Internet / you think it's such a great asset / but you're wrong, wrong, wrong
    All that fiber optic gear / still cannot take away the fear / like an island song

    None for me or the Mrs. (or the two kids).

    Never really considered getting one and don't have any plans to.

    I'd agree that Angelina didn't need any extra decoration and should've stopped before the tiger.....but I'm sure there are plenty who think otherwise......

    None for me. I pass out when every time I have to get a shot. There's no way I could endure "artwork". Although, like many "children of the eighties", I had my ear pierced in college.

    Every time my wife is out with her friends, I jokingly ask her if they are all going to the tattoo parlor. She doesn't find it funny. Oh well.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    When I first read the title of this thread, I wondered if it was going to be related to Fantasy Island. I wonder if Hervé Villechaize has any tats.

    I have none personally. There have a few that I've fallen in and out of love with getting but didn't because I think if you're going to live with it the rest of your life it should be good "in some way".

    My gf however, is absolutely covered. You'd have to be blind not to notice. I guess you can get away with that in California though.

    Last time a friend of mine was visiting from Indiana we almost went for matching ones with another friend from Indiana who lives here. Maybe this summer, it would be a damn cool tat.

    btw, the aforementioned friend who lives here has the Indiana torch and stars inked on the inside of his left forearm. Nice...

    I got another tattoo yesterday.

    A variation of the Kryptonian "S" symbol/Superman insignia on my upper right scapular region. It is in color; my other two are black ink.

    I don't have any, at the moment.

    I'm going to end up getting my last name across my shoulders in Old English. That's the only one I want.

    Thank God my gf doesn't have any. For some reason I'm not a big fan of women having any, even if they're supposed to be sexy. Just aint my thing.

    I have 6 tattos, five of which are about quarter to half dollar size. All are linear and black. four of them are alchemical symbols for gold, silver, copper and iron. they are on my left forearm, right forearm, outside my right calf and outside my left calf respectively. Another is two interlocking rings (the ancient and current symbol for marriage). It is on my chest, above my heart (awwwwww).

    My larger tatoo is a silhouette map of the finger lakes on my left upper arm. Again, just black.

    My next piece will be my largest. It will be a black silhouette of the Great Lakes, which will be on my right upperarm and shoulder/back.

    No tattoos for me. I like 'em well enough, though. I just get edgy whenever I think of something permanent. What if it sags? What if I grow to dislike it? Etc. Overall, though, I think they're damn sexy on either gender. I do think if you're going to get more than one, they should work with each other and not be a jarring jumble of completely different styles, colors, etc.

    I always ask myself why I would want a tattoo. It always ends up that it's a personal thing, to be different, unique. Then I always end up saying to myself that since EVERYONE has one, having none is indeed unique.

    No. People that have no tattoos are still the majority.

    I've got a tattoo that says "Swan", except when my wife is around, then it says "Saskatchewan."

    Ah, but the BEST quote EVER from Family Guys is :

    Stewie Griffin Yes, do you like cleaning my doodie, Brian? Say it.
    Stewie Griffin Say, "I like cleaning your doodie, Stewie."
    Stewie Griffin Ha! Don't forget the taint.

    LMAO!!! I'm rolling just thinking about it again.

    (Sorry about that little divergence. Now back to tattoos and dick jokes from Harmonica..)
