What's your take on tattoos?

I wish this trend of drawing all over your body would end. I would chalk it up to me being too old, except, I had this same stance back in college when people were getting tattoos. So maybe it's just that I am not, and have never been, hip or trendy.

Do you have tattoos? What made you get them? Are they visible? Do you regret getting them? Do you plan to get more?

  1. I have two small tattoos on my right ankle, a little bit more discreet but I love them, most of the time... When I have to wear a formal dress I opt for opaque tights and I tend not to go bare-legged to work or family functions. It does make it harder for me to dress professionally or "young-kid-friendly"... Sometimes I regret my second tattoo because it is bigger and higher up on my ankle and possibly less "meaningful" but overall I try not beat myself up because it is on me forever!

  2. I question the wisdom of making irrevocable choices for your 60 something self at 20 something or even thirty something.

  3. I don't have any, but I sometimes toy with the idea of getting one. If I ever do, it will be right above my hip and visible only to the hubby - and maybe my fellow beachgoers during swimsuit season.

  4. When I was working on a ship it seemed like EVERYBODY had them. That was the only time I ever toyed with the idea. And fortunately I only thought about it for about a minute. They look gross when you get older.

    I don't have any, but I am seriously considering getting one. For me, the reason I want it is because it is a part of me that just doesn't show yet. for me, getting the tattoo is more of a form of expressing myself to myself in a visible way. My tattoos will be large, but that is part of the concept. I am not doing it to be cool. Just to put the me I see on the inside outside.

    I've got 6 tattoos and dont regret any of them and they are all visible and I plan on getting more. Many of them I design myself. Its just art to me.
