Don't get me wrong tattoo art is beautiful and its a great way of expressing yourself...but, I think guys have gone overboard these days. They get one, than two three four five. One of my exes has 10, and to be perfectly honest up close the details of them look like SHIT! So what is this whole ink craziness about?
I don't know. The tats don't come off. I have three (one around each wrist and one on my left forearm.) If I had to do it over again, I probably wouldn't have tattoos. In my professional life, I have make sure my wrists are covered when a meet a big client. The tattoos can make a bad first impression.
Most girls approve of the tattoos, but now I only need the opinion of my fiancé. She's neutral on the tattoos now. I think she may actually them; but she would never tell me (it's a long story.)
I was always interested in tattoos and piercings growing up. Didn't actually get any work done till 3 years ago. As of right now I have 4 tattoos and 1 WIP. Having tattoos has no affect on my personal or professional whatsoever. Out of the 5 pieces I have, only one is exposed while in a short sleeve shirt. I didn't get tattoos to be cool or anything. I got it for myself and myself only.
A lot of guys think chicks find them attractive, some guys want to buy a sense of being tough, and other guys actually want to represent or wear something beautiful. I think today it is more unique to NOT have a tattoo.
