If you do, how many is too many? And what sort do you dig?

I love 'em. I'm also into mods in general and find a lot of heavy mods to be something of a turnon, just for perspective. The only tattoo turnoffs I have are openly racist pieces (or other subject matter I find personally offensive) or very poor quality work.
As far as what I dig: basically anything that's good quality. There's no such thing as too many, as far as I'm concerned. Well-done custom full bodysuit, sleeves, backpieces are awesome. I tend to like large, unique pieces, but in the end it's about him being comfortable in his own body – if what he wants is one 2" flash design, that's what he should get. But the artist doing it should have basic skills – obviously cleanliness and sterilization practices as well as be able to draw proper straight lines and whatnot.
If there are multiple separate tattoos in one area (an arm with two or three rather than, say, one large sleeve), I do like for them to have some sort of aesthetic common theme, whether it's through colors, art style, subject matter, etc. That's more of a Design 101 type deal than anything to do with the tattoos themselves, though.
There's nothing more beautiful than a good tattoo, and there's nothing worse than a bad tattoo.0
