My step dad is a tatoo artist but I still judge people with tatoo's. i don't understand how they can get jobs with tribals on their hands, neck and face. I certainly don't want a turtle neck for the rest of my life so if I ever get one it will be small and on my back.

That's the problem with people today, they haven't learned a damn thing. Looking at somebody different because they have a tattoo, is just discrimination in another form. Why shouldn't somebody be able to get a position because of a tattoo if they are just as experienced?

Well I'm not saying that you are a bad person. I'm just saying that it's something that needs to be overlooked. You can't tell what somebody is like just by seeing a tattoo. I'm glad to see you would hire someone based on qualifications and not whether their inked or not.

I don't understand people who are judgemental about tattoo's. I think they are a more common thing nowadays and should be accepted already. If people can have fake boobs, and all this cosmetic surgery and it's acceptable. Then why can't you decorate your own skin, especially since most people who get tattoo's have meaning behind them.

I just think people get a bad rap for having tattoo's. Time for me to go get one done to myself. I am aching to get one, maybe MyLot will pay for my first.

I don't really judge them, but I do wonder what some of these girls with tatoos all over their bodies will look like when they're little old ladies. Or, in a professional job. Will they have to wear long sleeves forever? I have a little tatoo myself, but it remains hidden.

Im would hope not !! i have to of them and am looking towards getting more. If i can get done what i want to get done i am looking at probably ending up with either full sleeves or maybe 3/4 sleeves. lol In fact i have Pics of mine in my Photos area. as for me judgeing people. No way ! Not fair to them. If anything its a great conversation starter. On top of it all, i love hearing the stories behind the tatts. I find it soo intriguing. =O)

I know that tattoos are previlent in todays society but people are still judged. It comes from people being closed minded. Some people are stuck in the old days when tattoos were taboo. I have 3 tattoos and when people find out I have them they say, oh you don't seem the type, and I reply what type would that be? It drives me crazy!!!

Why would I look at them diffrently. They are humans just like I am. People with tattoos deserve the same respect as everyone else does. To be honest I want a tattoo. I just cant afford one right now.

No, i don't judge people with tattoos, nor do i judge anyone. It is wrong to judge people by their appearances. Besides who are we to judge others? No one is perfect and everyone has his or her flaws. I have met a few people who dress so shabby that you wouldn't talk to them, only to find out that they are well educated and very smart people. I got into a cab and had a small conversation with driver about having a bad cold, and to my suprise he was doctor from another country. The bottom line is never to judge anyone because if you do someone out there is going to judge you too.

Frankly speaking I dont like Permanent tattoo. I generally go for the temporary ones. This does not mean that I dont like a person or my first Impression would change which I see a person with a tattoo. That is their choice as if my friend like it then why not. I have friends who have permanent tattoo.

Well if your looking for a job, I would think you would be judged pretty harshly but as for me I really don't care, my wife has 2, I have not taken the plunge yet. I will eventually.

Depends on what it is a tattoo of. They can be beautiful. They can make a statement they can be trashy. If you get a tattoo of a nekid man on your stomach, yep that is trashy. If you get some scroll work or something on your lower back that's artful.

I do agree it also depends on who does it as well..."Good work isnt cheap, And cheap work isnt good"

I have not been fond of tattoos in the past. I thought they were a degregation to the body God gave you. Now I am a little more hip I guess. I allowed my daugter to recieve one on her 18th birthday. A small rose on her lower hip above the buttox. It is something that can be covered if necessary or visible when oppropriate. She has enjoyed the experience and wishes to get another. Not the choice is hers. I prefer it to be less visible on women than men. Any tatoo done in moderation and with taste I have no problem with.

Thats good to hear!My mother and father hate mine, but have accepted it.And as far as God goes,I think that God accepts me for who I am,no matter what I do to it,our body is a temple,some people get nose jobs,some get liposuction the list goes on of what people do to their bodies.We all in some sense alter our bodies, rather it be permanent (Tat2s etc) or not permanent ( makeup,dying our hair plucking our eyesbrows etc) But I respect your comment and do APPRECIATE, your views on this subject!! Thanks :)
