There has been a ton of discussion here about tattoos.. to get one or not get one.. I am  not a fan, and this pic explains exactly why I am not keen...

some tats look okay on younger people but we don't stay that way forever! Not all of us gain that kind of weight but still. Sick

people think before they get their tatoos.

Im not a fan of them but one small discreet tatoo that has some meaning behind it is okay.  Tatoos up and down the arms and legs, chest and neck gross me out and I think they are ugly.

I got my first tattoo in my mid-30s, and I spend 3 years thinking about it -- not just the what, and whether or not I actually wanted it, but the where. There are many places on the body that don't suffer the effects of gravity and weight gain/loss, and I specifically chose one of those (the very top of my arm) for that very reason. The other reason I chose that location is that it allows me to control when the tattoo will be visible to others just by wearing or not wearing sleeves.

Then last year I got my second one -- to memorialize my beloved kitteh -- in the same place on the other arm. I don't plan to get any more, though I might add details to the two I have.

I think getting a tattoo in your teens or early 20s is silly not just because of the aging & sagging issue, but because it's pretty rare to know at that age what kind of symbol/image you're going to want with you for the rest of your life.

Another reason teenagers shouldn't get tatts!

Smiley  this has always been my thought, and the not really thinking I'd enjoy the process.  So it's fine for everyone else, just not me.

BTW, jadeyy, I like the new avatar--so summer-y.

so that was always one thing that held me back, not to mention the cost...
