I've just come back from holiday and for whatever reason we were tattoo noting, and not for good reasons. Pretty much every tattoo we saw was cliché, or just plain ugly. How is scribbling a bit of green ink into an arm supposed to be attractive? If you think your tattoo is indicative of some sort of artistic temperament or creativity, take that as a Levin warning sign that you're not.
Some guys like tattoos and some guys don't. Some guys think they're the hottest thing ever and some guys think it's trashy. I have two tattoos and the way I see it if some guy isn't going to talk to me once he finds out I have tattoos (neither of mine are visible) then I figure that's just a person that I don't need in my life. My friend has a friend who apparently thinks I'm cute and one day we were out and he went off about how trashy tattoos were and how he'd never be attracted to a girl with tattoos let alone date one, the look on his face when I told him I had two was priceless.
