Tattoos. Why?

Unless you got drunk and your mates dragged you to an irresponsible tattooist, why have one? Does it make you look better? In most cases the answer is NO. Does it to show your undying love for your partner, who you split up with later and is now an embarassment but you think of it as a trophy? Are you so ashamed of yourself that you think it will enhance your appearance? Are you surprised when you go for a job interview with tatts on your face that you don't get the job?
I'm fully aware that in certain cultures tattooing is the norm, but that isn't the case in the UK unless you are a bloke who wants to try and look hard or a lady who has no confidence in her appearance.

Tattoos. Why?
------

In short, my body my choice, however as you have spent this whole thread coming across as a judgemental pričk I dont feel like justifying myself or my tattoos to you in any more detail than that.

I take it then that you're ugliness makes you feel embarassed as well as bad-mannered.
Judgemental? Everybody makes their own judgements about other people every day. Have you made a comment about Boris or Cummings recently or about a rival team or player. Well sorry sunbeam, that is being judgemental. Try posting a contrary point of view properly without resorting to bad language. Get your Dad to help with your reply.. if you know who he is.

You can have an opinion but to judge someone based on tattoos says more about you than it does about them.

For lack of a better example, I would compare tattoos to hair colour in the sense that you might have a preference but ultimately it doesn't matter and any will do.

Got 3 Tatts and want more
----------------------------------------------------------------------
22 I think it is now and I'm nowhere near done
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Probably look like a Childs scrapbook
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Hahaha my torso is probably about 90% done, back about 75%, and both arms completely covered. Right lower leg completely covered and left calf done too. If I was being self critical, I'd say I look like your average GTA V online character
----------------------------------------------------------------------
That’s a lot of moneys worth!

What do you have?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Gothic sleeve on right arm (skulls, ravens, reaper, etc)
"Fallen comrade" sleeve on left arm signifying everyone close to me who I've lost, dates, psalms, etc and can be added to - probably about 7 different designs blended into the sleeves all in all
A zip opening down my left hand side (better than it sounds!)
Tributes to my kids over my heart
Hudds Town crest on right pec with a couple of bits of writing and symbols also club related
Few different scriptures either side of my abdomen
Fender Telecaster down my right hand side
Musical notes for Live Forever solo from shoulder to shoulder
Celtic design on most of my back with links to Athlone (My nan's hometown) and my Catholic roots incorporated within
Another gothic sleeve on lower right leg
Swirling union Jack on left calf (worst one)
Shackles around my left ankle

And a partridge in a pear tree. Not really.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
See that does sound a bit messy to me, though the gothic sleeve and zip sound quite neat. Is the zip opening to expose flesh and bone? That would be awesome!
----------------------------------------------------------------------
It's like when your zip breaks and it's still fastened but still opens in the middle if that makes sense? About a 4 inch gap in it that exposes the bottom of my rib cage and a bit of intestine, etc. Tempted to have a similar one on the inside of my upper right leg.

It is a bit messy tbh but I'm working with an artist mate of mine to try and tie it all together a bit better. Some are better than others but I don't regret any of them except the Union Jack one which I can't really cover without making it too dark.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
that’s pretty cool I have to say!
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Cheers Baz

Totally onboard with stuff like that, that’s definitely individual and creative, and likely takes real skill. Yet another celtic armband ir sone other generic thing is not cool in anyway, it’s the tattoo equivalent of buying a Ford Focus and floating about it.

What you’ve got, that’s pretty unique and interesting
