    Well, who has the time for modesty these days anyway.

    I think SJs are probably less into tattoos than other types. SJs tend to be more conservative and professional appearance wise.

    Hence why my tattoos are not visible during working hours.

    Wah, I dunno. I would of thought its more like expressing the history on their body? Its like my ISTJ friend she did it to signify certain things in her life so she puts them there as a value statement, nothing too fancy or noticeable like extreme.

    This mightn't be true for SJ's in general. And While I understand the conservative and such, there are extremes too I guess. Then who is more inclined to enjoy getting tattoos? SP?

    Its a personal choice I see and during working hours wouldn't be noticeable much I'd gather. What was the decision behind your tattoos?

    I've had three cats that really meant a lot to me over my lifetime. I have one tattoo for each of them. Lower neck (it's covered easily by a t-shirt), and one on each shoulder blade.

    I know an SJ who uses tattoos to remind her of some periods of her life. I don't know if it means that she took them originally with that idea or if that's what she says now. Couple of SPs took tattoes, but I don't really know if they have much other meaning than decoration. At least they haven't mentioned.

    I am quite sure I wouldn't take a tattoo, since if I would it would have to be something important, like a statement, but I doubt that I will think that strongly about anything. It seems like a big decision to have it there always.

    If we're stereotyping, I'd say it's an SP thing. As an NP, tattoos are waaaay too permanent, and I foresee not liking it in the future very easily. Too much commitment (I have other reasons also, like respecting the body, just not my style, etc).

    Unfortunately, some SPs don't make decisions with a lot of forethought. My ESFP sister hates tattoos and she still managed to get one. Why? Because the guy offered to give her a free tattoo valued at $300 and it sounded like such a deal in the moment.

    I actually DO see a lot of SJs with tattoos. They are pretty accepted in the mainstream now, and it seems some SJs see it as a way to commemorate something. It does seem they may be more prudent in deciding where to place them, recognizing there are some situations in which their tattoo can make a negative impression.

    Well, a good deal is a good deal, no matter how you slice it...

    i would've guessed it as a more stereotypical SP thing too, though in truth a J is probably much better at making a long-term decision like getting a tattoo.

    i personally have a discreet back tattoo, and part of its significance for me is that i was able to make a decision about something permanent. long-term decisions generally freak me out and i suck at them, so my tattoo isn't even just about the design, but about the decision itself too. i still waver in how i feel about it on a week-to-week basis but overall i'm very happy about it.

    anyway, my mom's an ESFJ and she will admire well-done tattoos on others, but i don't believe she would ever get one herself.

    hey, at least you're honest about it.
