I think it's becoming more of a trend for people to get them purely for artistic reasons and oddly those tattoos may be the ones most justifiable for anyone who wants to judge another impartially. It's just like "LOL I thought it would look badass." But even then, there's a backstory to be uncovered so go figure.

    I mean, generally, a woman who gets a tramp stamp did so because her focus was on the erotic; regardless of whether she's actually a tramp, it does say that at least at one point, she was openly, liberally, sexual, in a sense. A sexual woman doesn't need to have sex to be a nymphomaniac.

    You can judge any work of art/creative endeavor. That's fair. I think that stupid tattoos are a turn off. Food ones though I'm sort of neutral about in regards to being sexually attractive. But if they are good I won't find them a hindrance to appreciating a body. I guess I don't see then non tattooed body as pristine. Just a different state.

    I guess you could view a body covered with tattoos as being less naked, as you have a visual distraction from the person's nekidity and it kind of covers it up.

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.

    Someone pointed out an overall societal decrease in the amount of clothing people wear on their bodies and an increase in the amount of tattoos. Thought it rather interesting.

    Ok with one or two. But generally not a fan.

    Have fun getting a non service industry job with sleeves.

    True true. I've always seen visible tattoos as a luxury of being in a profession/point in your life where you can get away with it. I'm all for self expression but 8' also about getting that moolah. And right now I can't have both.

    I'm not ascribing this to you but my reaction to people who dislike tattoos on their partners has always been sort of the thought that "what? I can't ruin your view by reminding you the I have a personality?". Not in angry crusader way though just perplexed.
    Maybe we're approaching it from opposite angles. I was speaking in terms of first impressions, while you may have been addressing a perspective that's more highly informed about the tattoo and the tat wearer. Yes?

    Hmmm not really. I think When I see a tattoo I think of it as being a part of them rather than just on them. So if I start looking at a persons tattoo I feel like I'm looking at their body but also their mind (an expression of it). I reread your other post and I'm interpreting it as the idea that you find that tattoo distracting and treat it as a separate visual image on the person . You see and think of the symbol divorced from the person?

    The difference between thinking of this :



    in comparison to being drawn in a train of thought about this:



    ??



    That butthole tattoo girl is retarted and I'm guessing has some serious mental/emotional issue. That's a big judgement but just based on that action and her generall demeanor and pattern of speech she seem like someone looking for destruction. And it's sad that if that is the case all of these people around her just enjoy the spectacle of it.

    Maybe not thought. Maybe she's a healthy individual who is simply expressing her self.

    Meh, the nicer job you have, the more likely you are totally apropos wearing long sleeves. It's not really an issue.
