Do you have tattoo in your body?

Do you have tattoos in your body? Which part of the body it is drawn? What is your interest in doing it? I just don't understand why people manipulate their natural body with tattoos. Or is it not a manipulation? Do you have any special topic of interest with tattoos? Do you want it forever in your life? Do you often show it to others? Do you think that a tattoo will add your complexion?

Speaking from the standpoint of NEVER wanting any tatoos- I always felt the same- why would someone want to manipulate thier body - BUT- I turned 32 this week- and decided - if not now when. I feel that I am old enough now to understand that is it there for life- which is why I have it somewhere that I can hide in professional situation- but me personally- I have had mine for 3 days- and It really makes me feel that much sexier :) I have started a discussion about my first tatoo with a pic of it if your interested in seeing it!

Many many happy returns of the Day!! I have seen your discussion and the picture. As you know personally I won't tattoos, there is some artistic value for them, though. I want my body in its natural look and I don't even use any perfumes. Thank you for responding.. Have a nice day.

I have a tatoo on the middle of my lower back. It is a very small butterfly. I got it when I turned 40~ kinda my midlife crisis moment. I do like it. I like that it is on my back so I don't really see it unless I specifically look in the mirror for it. My husband loves it and he is the one who shows it to everyone. I have been thinking of getting another one on my toe. I want to get a little daisy that will look like I have a toe ring on.

If others can see it, and if you could be happy when they enjoy it.. well and good. Thank you for the response

The reason I got it on my lower back is so that no one can see it unless I choose to wear a top that shows it. Being a mother of 4, there are times that you don't want others to know you have a tatoo and there are other times that you want to have fun and dress fun also.

Tattoo - How long do you think it took to complete this tattoo?
I hate tattoos and would never dream of defacing my body like that. I hate needles for starters and it just gives me the creeps thinking of people sitting there whilst someone "draws" on their body with needles UGH! I guess I've always been too sensible or too boring (LOL) to consider doing something like this...

I don't have tattoo on my body. I don't wish to have any sort of artificial painting or mark on my body. But if some one has a tattoo on their body, it is their option and choice. It is their perception of enhancing their appearence. Just because I / We don't like some thing I don't expect every one to remain like me / us. I don't worry if some one's perception is different from that of mine.

i have one on my back and i plan to get another on my ribcage, two on my chest and maybe one on the back of my calf (all in the next few years). tattoos are a form of personal expression, it's like a piece of artwork that you'd buy to hang in your house, however it is done on your body instead of paper lol. and the tattoos that i have are all going to be hidden, unless i want to show them to others.

I have no tattoos on my body. I think it is manipulation too, and a waste of good hard earned money to have it done. A stick on tattoo would do the trick, if I had a desire for one.:)

Oh, is it much expensive? It is not that popular here. People think differently... Thank you Margieanne.

I am basically a very shy person and do not like to draw undue attention, so I would definitely have a tattoo. but I think those having tattoos are trying to make a statement, letting others know what and who they are.

No I don't have one, and I'm not planing to have one either, I think tattoos are for you to impress somebody, but it is better to be natural.

I have 2 small tattoos.. one on my left thigh and the other on my right hip. I'll have them for the rest of my life, I think too many people get tattoos and then regret them later, but I purposely got mine in areas that were easy to cover up so that only very special people (and those that see me in my swimsuit) can see them. I think they're very attractive!

Okay dear friend, I think you have them just like wearing a good necklace or ear ring or any other ornament. Do you think that tattoos will add your beauty/complexion? Thanks for sharing our thoughts.

I have 2 tattoos. A black rose on my left shoulder and a tribal on my right ankle, with tribal zodiac symbols in it representing myself, my son and his dad. I love them, and I have 6 more planned. Personally, the tattoos I have, and the tattoos I want represent things that are very important to me. There will never be a day that I'll say "I wish I'd never gotten this tattoo..." I may one day say, "This part of me has changed, and so the tattoo needs to change," and then I'll decide how I want to change it and have it re-worked/touched up. And someday, when I'm old and wrinkled and saggy and my grandkids ask me what the colored blobs on my body are, I'll be able to show them the pictures and tell them the stories behind them.

I have five tattoos: three on my lower back and two on my upper chest, near my shoulders. Most of the time, all five of them are completely covered. I plan to get a lot more tattoos, so that eventually, almost my entire body will be a work of art. That is why I get tattoos--so that I can be a walking work of art.

I have never wanted a tattoo really. I don't like them personally. I have seen some pretty nice, artful tattoos, but I just don't want to mark my body in that way.

Yes, we think alike Misheleen. As I said, I just can't understand why people do it? Thank you dear friend.

I don't have any actually. But if given the chance to have one, I'll place that tatoo on my back just like the one that you've showed in your photo for this discussion. :)

Is it only because you haven't the chance? And if you do it like in the picture, to whom to show? or do you keep that part open all time? Thank you for responding.

I don't have any tattoos in my body, as I don't really like it and worry one day I would regret if I had one. Sorry I am not that type of style person. LOL
