Tats are like skanky stripper heels. You gotta be able to pull off that look. Don't be like my friend Beth. She has a non committal tat on her wrist that says some cheesy shit. And nothing else. I'm guessing. Hmm... I've never seen her naked, so I can't say for sure. But she did tell me that she only has the one. So I still like her because she has big boobs, but the tat is incongruous with the rest of her personality, so in that sense, it's kind of a negative.
I couldn't vote because I had two answers. Tattoos-both on men and women, look much different and firm young skin than older, saggier skin. Don't smirk, you'll get there sooner than you think. Also, respectable tattoo shops will not touch anyone under 18.
I do not have a tattoo, nor do I plan on acquiring one. My opinion is neutral on others getting them-- I just hope that they commission a true, professional artist for health and quality guarantee (which includes good placement... the size and design should be in harmony with your body's angles).
In spite of my preference, if a person is going to get tattooed, I actually (visually) prefer that they have a large project... be that a sleeve or what have you. Single, scattered pieces, especially when they don't dovetail with your body, somehow seem more distracting than when a more liberal portion of skin is covered.
The opinion, positive or negative, of someone other than the person planning them is immaterial, of course.
Honestly both can be beautiful, inked or non-ink. I remember when I was 18 I thought tattoos were the ugliest things lol thats when they were starting to get more popular and I hated how people were getting the same tattoos but now I've grown accustomed to it and don't mind :D I'm actually more interested and open minded to tattoos now!
So I think anyone can rock tattoos lol I don't know if thats their thing
