It seems to be pretty popular nowadays.  How many do you have, where are they, why did you get them?

I have 2. Why I have them and what they are are of only interest to me.  Those who have tattoos know what I mean. Those who don't have them, wouldn't understand why anyone would get one regardless of the design. I don't mean that in a negative way, It's just what I think.

Ya know, I have always been dead set against having a tattoo, but it seems lately that my attitudes have been really swinging the other way.  I tell ya what, if someone could show me the design I have in my head, I would consider one now after all this battle with my the use of my shoulders and arms.  I would like to have a tattoo of a circle saw tearing into my left bicep.

Careful Jeff, my cousin recently started getting them and says they are addicting.
He's on his second or third large one and has several more planned.
From what I've seen of others, it is indeed an addiction. :-\

I have no tattoos, unless you want to count the blue spot in my left ear, where Roy Edwards poked his pencil through there in the fourth grade. ::)

One on the left upper arm. I tend to agree with Stumpy, the symbolism is personal in nature and many wouldn't understand it.

I have one, I got it almost 20 years ago. I could never get another. Not because I don't like them. I just get nervous setting so long. I don't even go to the barber I used to because he was so slow, no kidding my wife has cut my hair for years just because it bothered to wait in line and have to set in his chair forever while he talked to everyone in the shop instead of just getting the job done.

I used to really like tattoos, now I rarely even notice them on myself or others.

I don't have any and won't. The wife and i went camping last weekend and went down to the beach,  seemed like we were the only ones "unadorned".  Some tatoos I like but most of what we saw that day should have stayed covered up. ::)  Come to think of it most of em shoulda stayed covered up even if they had no tats. ;D

I don't have one, but I think they are kinda cool, if done right.

I am old, so when I was growing up, tatoos were limited to sailors and bikers, now things are different. I think they are a neat self-expression sort of thing. Kinda like why I have 3 earrings in one ear, and none in the other. Why? Because I can!  :)  Because it is different. It is me expressing my individualism in a subtle sort of way.

I got a tatoo about 10 years ago at a classic Chevy show and added to it the following year at the same show. It is just an individual decision and design and I know that nobody else has one just like it. I have considered getting another one, but so far havent done so. Mine is on my upper arm where it isnt seen by others unless I go without a shirt.

I guess I have funny ideas about tats on women, but I'm different like that. I dont particularly like to see a woman with a tat.

For me, a tattoo is like putting bumper stickers on the car, but with the added problem that they can't be removed (if ideas change, one grows up, or whatever might change). If they were removable (like ear rings and other body hardware), I might think different.  :)
I haven't seen a tattoo yet that I thought looked good, or that went beyond just a 'tarnish' to someone's skin and body. 
But I've no problem with anyone who wants one or has one. It's their body, and they can hang a sign on it to announce that if they so feel like it.  :)

I got one on my right arm I got in Vegas ::)  Don't ask.

The one on my left is the Dalzel family crest, dad's side is Scottish.  It has a neat saying "I dare".  

I won't get anymore not because I don't like them, but they are kinda permanent and I hate to worry about getting them touched up every 20 years.

The good tattoo'ers are "artists".  If you go describe what you want to a good tattoo person, they can draw up exactly what you envision, and maybe a couple versions.  If it doesnt blow your mind and make you say "wow I would like that on my body", then its probably the wrong thing for you.  If they have to trace it from something to be able to do it, they are just another guy with a gun.  Better watch out Jeff, you might end up with one if you start talking about it to people! 

I just saw an old guy with tattoos the other day.  I figured his tats were pretty fresh, all vibrant colors, looked great.  I commented and he said they were over 50 to 30 years old.  He just took great care to avoid the sun and made sure the guy putting them on was knowledgeable and used good ink.  Mine have faded and need to be redone due to many days out in the sun with no sunscreen.  Yeah yeah, living the wild life!
