Tatt, Tatt, Tatted up!

the other day i spoke to my homeboy that i havent spoken to in a loooong time. he told me he had a new girl but had ONE biiiig issue with her...this girl has tattoos EVERYWHERE! and not in places which are discreet...but in places where any and EVERY one can see them. this isnt necessarily a big issue to him...but he's worried about the family introductions and going out to fancy places where a gown or something is required...and she'll have all these damn tattoos showing...

mind you, i have five tattoos myself. no one ever knows though unless i show them and the most obvious spot i have one in...is my shoulder (some people may say my lower back but thats usually covered unless at a party. i said that to say, im NOT against tattoos at all...in any way! i do however think it is tacky (no offense to anyone) to have tattoos all over your body, in random places and then go out somewhere classy and try to look like a part of the crowd. if you dont plan on involving evening gowns or anything of that sort to your activities list, then by all means, handle your business.

shit, i was even slightly embarrassed when i was in a wedding and had the tattoo on my shoulder showing :(
thought i stood out like a sore thumb.

but my question really is...would you date someone who had tattoos any and everywhere?? or have you??? did it change any dynamics in your relationship?

what about for the ladies? how do you feel about tattoos? cuz i LOVE bodies covered in them...as long as i can still take you out places without people mistaking you for a rapper lmao

i dont have any tats but i dont see anything wrong with them. but on a female perspective i do think its tacky when a girl has it everywhere for obvious reasons like fancy occasions and even work.

but i love males who have em, but i do think they should stay clear of places that would keep them from getting a job or making a good impression on others

i dont have any tatts myself at the moment, though i do plan on getting a few, however, i dont see a problem with a guy that has tattoos. i'm one of the many females that actually kinda dig em on dudes. but like che che said i do think that there should be a limit or at least some kind of class to getting them for males and females

I am not against tattoos, even been contemplating getting one myself, but I think some people take it too far. I always think about how will the tat look when I am older, think it is crazy when you have a 60 year old with tattoos all over their body all disformed (even if they stay in shape...skin does change).

I think there is no difference with men and women with tats, there has to be a limit. Most companies and jobs are becoming more open about tattoos, but not to the extreme.

Uak I have 7...2 in which I'm considering covering!! I love body art...some of mine r discreet, some aren't...no one has had an issue w/ my tats as of current. Seems as if every dude I run into anyway has some. Mr. Ramsay has both sleeves covered and I find it very sexy! I understand where ur coming from with the wedding look lol...when it comes 2 certain events, u must always find something that will either cover or compliment ur tats!
