Tattoos....whats the big deal
September 3, 2008 10:23pm CST
I dont understand why people make such a big deal about having tattoos. I have 4 tattoos and getting my 5th Next friday and there are some members of my family like to harrass me about my tattoos. They are always telling me that I am going to go to hell for distroying my body with tattoos. I personally feel that I am just adding decorations just like if you would wear earrings. I am constanly asked what I am going to think of my tattoos when I am an old woman, am I going to regret them. I say no, I will look at them like a road map to my life. I would like to know everyones opinions on people with tattoos. If it is a responce aginst tattoos please explain why you are aginst them.

I absolutely despise when people start to say all these negative comments towards tattoos because their are many times they do not even know if what they are saying is a fact or just something that someone told them and so on. I personally have 2 tattoos and there have been many times that I have encountered many people who stereo type people with tattoos and I always ask them, do you think i am a person who would have a tattoo and their response is always no and I proved my point that anyone can have them even the people you least expect to have them. Both of mine are in areas that are not visible to the public and I am not the type of person to show them off I got them because I wanted them not because I needed to prove anything to anyone. I always ask these people what is the main reason they are against tattoos and it never fails that their is not a person that does not say well what if their mother is dieing and they are the only ones with compatible blood what a waste they will never be able to give blood to anyone, again one should not believe all the things one is told, one should seek for facts because I am a blood donor and you are just unable to donate for 12 months after that you can.

I know what you mean...My boss absolutly hates the fact that I have a tattoo...It is a big tattoo, but a t-shirt covers most of it...It starts at my shoulder and goes down just passed my elbow...He doesn't say too much about it all that often, but I catch him staring at it in disgust quite often...I've had it for about 3 years now, so I'm not too concerned about him firing me over it or anything, so I'm moving on to get my other arm tattooed very soon... And as for anybody that thinks tattooed people go to hell, get a life and stop bothering other lives... -Mike
