When I was a teeneager I wanted to have a tatto.Actually I created a logo that I would like to have for my tattoo design.Here in the Phils. some old folks have bad notion and bad impression on girls who have tattoos.Old folks call them flirt,rebel and some other names.I think tattoo is also part of a fashion statement.But what I learned from a catholic community here that we should not have a tattoo bec. our body is sacred.What the heck..if I could just turn back time..I'll have a tattoo but not during my high school years...maybe the time when I was in college.On the second thought...having a tattoo could be a problem if you apply for work...But then again Im afraid of needles..so I'll just go for henna tattoo...lol...well at least I was able to experience having it for at least 2 weeks.lol.

I feel like you should be free to have your body tattooed if you would like too. I am saving up for a tattoo myself, it's a very decent design and not to big and for me it has a special meaning. I saw many catholic and christian people who had tattoos of crosses or jezus on their body and even texts like: "Only God can judge me". And I think that's true, it's your choice and if you are religious I think that's the only thing that matters; if it feels ok, it's ok.

Hi cyberfluf. Yes it's free and I respect the decision of all the people who have tattoos on their body.It's their body and I know it's an art.For some people it's not nice to look at and for those religious people they said that our body is sacred...every has their own reasons for having a tattoo.I'd love to have one but I am just scared of the needles.;p Thanks for posting.

That's true and it's a good thing we all have different opinions. You don't see the needle so if that's the point there is nothing to be scared off, the pain is another story but that also is said to be doable; otherwise no one would ever get one ever again .

My second girlfriend, the single mom has a heart tatto on her thighs. I wonder who the hell put that tattoo on her but i can assure you that she's well behaved than some girls without a tattoo. The elders impression on ladies with tattoos must be scrapped.

Hello pinks. I dont like getting a tattoo and I never considered having one. I seen a lot of women get tattoos. In my opinion they're destroying their image and their skin. I dont find it beautiful. Maybe men are considered to have tattoos but for women its another story.

I respect your decision ericajoyce. For some having a tattoo is part of the fashion statement.Some like it some don't consider having one. Thanks for posting ericajoyce.

Hi my friend, I have thought a few times off and on about getting a tattoo. I wanted to have a butterfly tattooed on my leg just about my ankle so it wouldn't show if I wore long pants. Of course, like you, I am afraid of needles too, so I never went thru with it. I don't think any less of a lady that has a tatoo. That's their business and their bodies. I do think it's kind of ridiculous to see a woman (or a man for that matter) covered in tattoos. I don't like that at all, but to each his own I don't think they are bad for work at all as long as they don't show. Have a nice evening, Char

I also live in the Philippines and currently have three tattoos. My first tattoo was a tribal design on my back so I've never had any issues finding work because of it because people can't really see it.:p Now that I work from home and because I no longer need to face clients I took that as my go signal to add more tattoos. I now have a tattoo on my wrist and on my right arm. LOVE them:)

Lucky you..well as much as I want to have it I am scared of needles..anything pointed for that matter.LOL.You are such a strong lady.Well if I not scared of needles I would like to have one too.I actually created my own design but I can only have henna tattoo and that would be once a year only if I'll visit puerto galera.LOL.And my boyfriend would kill me...Actually just outside our office here in Robinson..there's a tattoo place here inside the mall and I am itching to go there and have my tattoo done..anyway the design I created was just small and for obvious reason bec. I know that if it's a large size it be much painful.LOL.So you must be a very brave girl. ;p Thanks for the comment.

actually girls who have tattoos according to me are stylish,cool posses attitude and they just believe in themselves. tatoos give them a groove.most boys like girls who have tattos and many do nao.but there is no bondage for a girl to not to tattoo herself.its her body she can do what she wants to do with her body.listen you should not listen to old folks they are just non fashionable( except some) . just believe in yourself. listen if you tatto yourself with a cross what you think the old folks will tell they will change their minds and just tell "she is soo religious and her faith in god is so much"so just dont go for them

It's cool but it's painful..and when you apply for work and do the medical exams..the doctor will ask you to have a hepa test to check if you don't have a health problem.And if somebody in the family needs a blood..you can't donate blood already. thanks for the comment pratiksnghvi

i dont like people who have tattoos on their bodies. i find it dirty and messy. i think they are just putting those on to promote art, but for me it's like ruining the beauty of our body. i hate boys who have that. it makes me think that they are some kinda of bad boys. but i dont say it in general. there are men who have it but looks presentable.

hi pinks, well that is oke for ladies to get tatoo at their body. i don't like having it, but i like to see people, even girls having tatoo. as long as it's not too much and cover every inch of her body, i think a girl with tatoo is sexy.
