[MBTI General] Do Guardians have tattoos?

I can't think of a single SJ I know in person that has a tattoo. Nearly every single SP, NF, and some NT's (minus the INTJ's-I don't know any INTJ's with tat's either) I know have tattoos of some sort. But none of the SJ's I know. And the perceivers that I know, who don't have tattoo's, usually don't because someone in their life (boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife) doesn't approve.

Do any of you guy's have a tattoo?

What is the significance of having or not having a tattoo? I'm a perceiver, and I don't have a tattoo because I don't want one. The only reason I would have one is because a lot of other people are getting them. And that's not a good enough reason for me.

An ISTJ girl friend of mine has one. For some reason, it's getting very common among the universities that her whole group of girl friends and sister from back home have all gotten their own (some have multiple--ISTP, INFJ, ISFP, ISFJ, ENFJ); and they're all soft-spoken, feminine types of girls. I thought it was beautiful: a green butterfly over a Japanese Cherry Blossom tree with pink cherry blossoms (behind her shoulder). Sometimes, she would appear ISTP (she loves romance novels, food, singing and snowboarding), while my gay ISTP best guy friend, who would sometimes appear ISTJ, would not get one. They could also be subtypes of the same type, since the dynamic between myself with each of them is very comparable. She's a 9w8 and he's a 9w1. And recently, when I was on a plane back to LA from Chicago (for a conference, by myself), a passenger was making conversation with me, and after some rather interesting topics, I was asked whether I had a tattoo. When I responded that I didn't, it was almost as though he didn't believe me, though he didn't clarify why. He followed to show me two on his arm... and I didn't ask whether it was now a common thing, even though I'm often the last person to hear of present trends. He seemed like an ESTJ, so perhaps it's catching on now... (my sister confirmed the likelihood of this to me recently by wanting one--she's an ESTJ). :)

One of my ESFJ besties has a wolf on the majority of her back. :D It's cool.

Oh, and my ISFJ ex is COVERED in tattoos. He used to look more "clean" but he's been covering his body more and more since we broke things off. He actually let me suggest one and he got it! It was falling feathers on his back.

Sister is ISTJ and she has a bunch. An entire rib piece, back, ankle, probably somewhere else too.

A couple of my ESFJ friends have them. It was a graduation tradition in my friend group.

An ESFJ I work with has several. The largest is a big rose on her left shoulder. It covers her whole shoulder and upper arm and extends towards her neck and back. She has her kids names in various places as well.

Is curiosity not enough?

Awe, lady x! Why not?
Commitment issues haha

Not really...it's just not me. I mean I could get all into this whole thing I've got with clean uncluttered spaces and stuff but it's silly how it applies to that somehow but it's all connected I'm sure haha

My enfp sister tho as of like 3 years ago... Like covered. It looks good on her. But yeah not me. It's a zen thing haha

Can I tell you that you're not the first ENFP I have heard say the exact same thing? About needing spaces to be clean and uncluttered in order to feel at peace?
