Nope, none on this guy.  At 44, I must already be "old", since I don't like them on women, and most of them on men look dumb...if you are going to do it, make it interesting. 

I like my ink in a magazine, metal for projects, and silicone around my tub.  Just old fashioned, I guess.

So many trees, so little money, even less time.

None on me. Saw one man in electrical supply company today.  His arms and legs were covered. If he wants them, it is his skin, not mine.

Nope no ink here, Guess I am old too, I can remember when guys got tattoos and girls got their ears pierced.

I don't need wild hair(guess you would have to have some), ink or ear rings or baggy pants to express my indviduallity.

I've been amused at times by the reasons youngsters give for getting a tattoo.  Something like: "I want to express my individuality."  Press a little harder, and it's "Well, everybody is getting one!" :D

Now, if I could get my girlfriend to get one on her lower back....

The younger guys I work with and my sons and there friends refer to tattoo on a girls lower back as a "Tramp Stamp"

"Tramp Stamp" :D
   I'll have to remember that... I like a lot of those tribal designs but I'd be a lot more likely to paint it over my trucks bumper than tatoo it over mine.  ;)

I'll admit I'm a bit of a tatoo snob...  I have no problem w/ service, memorial and art tatoos but mindless flash is either a waste of skin or worse.

SWMBO has two tatoos, she designed the first as a memorial, the second is for ten years after...
I don't have any, but I do have a good idea of what my tatooed self would look like and can't afford it. :D

Well, all I can say is that if you do something pretty on your stomach - I sure hope it holds it's shape...

I see them in areas and think "I don't think that is going to age well..."  ::)
So, how did I end up here anyway?

I had never had that inclination.  My wife has one that she laments about from time to time.  Large, yellow rose well over 30 yrs old and still bright and colorful.

I see quite a few of those barbed wire tattoos.  Seems to me, that if one really wanted to make such statement, they would get themselves some real barbed wire and wrap around a couple times. 

These later years, there are a lot more of them around.  I suppose some view them as some sort of personal statement.  I always figured if I had something to say, I just come on out and say it. 

Nope.  No earrings, nose rings...or others I have heard of. 

Heck, I'm unique enough as I am.  It has taken decades of perseverance to get this ugly.   ;D
