I have no tattoos myself. I really like the "tramp stamps", and a few other hidden tats or on the ankle can be really hot on an attractive woman! Years ago I used to think the nose piercings were hot, now I can take them or leave them.

I don't like tats and I don't like piercings.
On men or women.

I do have pierced ears from when I was a teenager.

One of my kids is a piercing fiend. She has ears up and down. Had a side nostril, septum (let them grow back cause she was tired of them), nipple, belly button and her latest is a medusa.

I hate them on her.

Anyway.

So....two cents said.

You can hate them, but do you support your daughters individuality?

I don't say "how lovely you got another." lol.
I don't think they signify individuality.
They signify following the trend of what's cool.

She sees one on someone and wants one.

She looks on blogs, sees one and gets a bee in her bonnet to have one too.

Individuality is far more, uh, individual than that.

I just roll my eyes when a new one appears. lol.

two tats and a nose peircing. i used to wear a stud now i wear a black nose hoop that I adore and ears about 4-5 in each. Im getting some more cartelidge piercing and have plans for more tats.

I wore mine during my job interview but im in a field where people dont trip about peircings and tatoos. Not the black hoop, i dont think they could have handle that but a tiny nose stud.

hubby has none, but is okay with mine. My 17 year old wants a tat but has to wait until she is 18 and has several peircings.

I don't have any tattoos because I could never settle on something that I would want on my body forever. However, I do like some tats and piercings on women. I think n!ppl3 and l@bia piercings are pretty hot on women.

I don't like whole sleeves or whole leg tattoos and I have this thing about being able to see the "person" underneath; some areas where there isn't any ink. On the flip side, depending on the artistry of the piece, I can find some full sleeves quite beautiful.

I've always loved tattoos on guys...grrrowl. When my hubby & I were still together, I would constantly trace his tats w/my fingers.

I'm 32 & only just got my first (& so far only) tattoo a little over a year ago. It's on my forearm & extends onto the back of my hand. I've been told it was a bold choice, especially for a first tat. It seemed normal to me, but I've always been a dance to a different beat kind of girl. It's very pretty, & I love it.

I used to love piercings. As I get older, though, I'm finding I don't dig visible piercings so much. I do have a tiny stud in my nose, which I've had since I was 15.

One thing about tattoos, a lot of them look really good now, but what will they look like in 20 years?

Sounds like my daughter! She began getting tats that "mean something." Well her idea of "something" is sort of "off."

It's trendy now. Good television is about tat shops. They have conventions.

Not judging others. Tat away!

Some put thought and others pretend to.....

what happens if you come to the conclusion that you used to love tats but as you get older, not so much.
not as easy to get rid of one like you describe as a piercing.

None of either. I can't imagine having a tat mark for the rest of my life, way too much comitment for me.

Like all art their purpose to communicate through aesthetic expression values to other people. In the case of visible piercings/tattoos, the expression is to strangers.

I have never, nor will I ever, desire to let strangers know my mother's/dead friend's name, someone's birthday, or what my favorite picture is.

... Just my opinion

Tattoos and body piercings used to be unusual expressions I guess, now everyone does it so it is more like someone saying "Im different! Im different!" while at the same time looking more and more like everyone else. Just another sheep.

Im sure I will get flamed for saying so - but seems to me that many (not all) people that get all excited about tattoos are the same attention seekers that stuck pencils in their nose and ate glue when they were kids. Now they cant wait to wear specially selected clothes to show of their special tat' or eagerly display ever increasing ear /nose rings to let everyone know how unique they are. Isnt that special. I'm inclined to say 'Good for you! Isn't that special?" ;-)

Go ahead. Let me have it. I am totally in the 'attention seeking' camp.

I suppose I must admit I find some tramp stamps kind of sexy - peeking up above a pair of low rise jeans in the same way a whale tail is sexy and suggestive. Tats are trashy though - and ultimately, eventually look like tired imperfections on naturally beautiful bodies - like graffiti in a park - and reminders of old beliefs that may or may not still fit the person.

Not judgemental - but in general, I think tats and egregious piercings a little silly.
