    I would honestly imagine that tattoos are more of an SP (aesthetic and experential reasons) and ENxP (self-expression and spontaneity reasons) thing.

    I can see how tats could be SJ, though, if you were around very young SJs that grew up at the tail end of generation X, or more so gen Y and Z, and were surrounded by the tattoo trend and therefore participated because it was the "in" thing to do...a behavior that's about immature SJ conformity more than anything else.
    Well I always thought that strong value placement as an association to want to express history through body art would be a strong judging quality. I don't think its about immature, more that there is great value in expressing their experience this way. Like a badge of honour, in this instance like a tattoo that tells their story.

    And then I wanted to find out how much stock there is in this idea by asking.

    Well that defies the trend. How meaningful are the tattoo's for you? Is there a story behind wanting to have tattoos? How did you decide you wanted to have tattoos and piercings? How did your intuition and feelings decide in wanting to have the tattoos you have and are you satisfied by them?

    None of either...but I am struck by reading the posts that they are "meaningful" (e.g. events in one's life, etc.) - it made me think about the purpose of memories and the function they serve: but that is digressing from the OP.
    ...doesn't work or play well with others...

    One has no meaning at all, i got it in between classes at uni when i was 18, pretty much to see how much it hurt.... It's an Ankh on my lower abdomen.
    The rest all have meanings and or/reasoning behind them.

    The other ones come from pet names from people and reflect events in my life as i've grown. Probably the one that has the most meaning is one i got just after getting out of an incredibly abusive relationship when i was about 27 and ties into both my love of history and literature.

    The piercings are a bit more of pure aesthetic and "whim", most of them will be removed once i leave uni again and change work environments.

    My scarifications probably hold he most meaning and the imagery behind them tie into personal and emotional growth, through their own inherent symbolism and what they mean to me.

    Sooo... i guess, my feelings and intuition drove the majority of the modification i have on my body, nearly everything has meaning and a story behind it and hold personal significance. I am happy/satisfied with all bar the one i first got "just to see how much it hurt".

    I think I read a statistic somewhere that SPs were the most common type to have tattoos. And that would make sense. Se and all. You know it's attracted to cool and pretty things, and living in the moment.

    I have about 3 more planned, I'd love to get a half sleeve, but I like that the ones I have now are easy to hide and as such, I am not defined by my body art and modifications... Damn being sensible!

    I don't see it as a J thing. There are potential long-term effects on career progress and dermal beauty during the golden years. And stereotypically, the SJs would fret about the possibility of catching AIDS from the needle or through the filthy parlor chairs.

    Of the people I know of with tattoos, it's nearly always been SPs. I was about to get one of a checkmate on a corner of a chessboard on my lower back, but reconsidered.

    I bloody hate tattoos and most piercings. I think I might be rather embarrassed at first once my mom gets the one she's planning. I know not why.
