I don't think they're trashy, not all tattoos are equally the same, I like people who have great quality tattoos tasteful looking ones over people with shitty ink (that's trashy or even cliche tattoos.) Tattoos are a form of expression. It's not for everyone. I never thought I would get tattoos in a million years but heck I have 5 so far. I saved a lot of money and till this day I have people in shock by ink work on how greatly detail it is and I still don't think it's utterly amazing work, they're artist who make it look exactly like a photograph or painting you either settle for shit work, great decent or fucking amazing unbelievable ink work. My tattoos are great but since I've dived into the tattoo world exposed myself to so many talented artists, I feel like they make my ink looks shitty haha. I personally don't like tattoos on the face/head/knuckles/under the boob/even scriptures on the chest unless it's bloody amazing font/penmanship. I love realistic tattoos, I do like other types of tattoo works but I prefer realistic looking ones.
