i like it when the tats have a meaning. some people just put anything on their bodies with no meaning or special or anything, tats are okay I have 4 myself ( all memorial tats) and piercings are okay if you don't go overboard. my first impression on someone is usually the way the carry themselves and act not based on their tats, that would be sort of shallow
At one point I kind of did, but tattoos are too permanent and usualy stupid/tackless as hell. Piercings also look gross and unhygenic for the most part ( I used to have them). Tattoos, unless they trully mean something extreamly deep, look like a mess. in the case that idea is deep it would be internalized regardless, and you wouldn't be covered in ideas.
i like both on a guy..i like tattoos more though. if the guy has his ear pierced its fine but facial piercings, etc. are a turn off for me. and tattoos..i love when guys have tattoos on their backs but I guess only if they have nice strong backs. otherwise their arms are nice and all that.
i don't mind mind tattoos, I don't like a lot of tattoos, but id make an exception for kat von d because she's just amazing. I myself don't have any tattoos, one piercing, haven't been able to figure out what I want, or if I even wanna go throught with it, very conflicted. I also think a person has to have some kind of a self absorbed personality to get a tatt, that's my confliction, why not just donate to charity?
