I see so many young people with full sleeve tattoos already. Even I don't have tattoos that can't be covered up by a business style clothing. Can't imagine what kind of careers all these kids think they are gonna have when they have tattoos all over their skin.

Strong. Nothing says "wannabe white boy with dreads" like a black man willing to cut them to evade police.

That's what this man is to me, a white boy with dreads. Good going you stupid cracker.

Agreed. Keep them where they can be hidden until you're ultra successful or win the lottery. I've seen a lot of people with tattoos not easily hidden/covered. I guess they are hoping that the trend continues and eventually all tattoos will just be looked over (steadily getting there but still a few decades off), maybe when Millennials are CEOs and the like tattoos will be no big deal at work, but we aren't there yet.

For a second I thought the article was talking about that hitchhiker guy. From what I remember, he was recognized by this huge facial tattoo that he'd gotten a few months beforehand, despite him trying to avoid detection by cutting all of his hair off.

I can't imagine someone getting a tattoo on their face is doing it on a whim. There's got to be some serious thought that went into selecting and executing the tattoo.

It's something that essentially permanent. Sure, a little heart on the hip or stars on the ankle might be an easy one-off to get, but anything more substantial should really mean something to you, if you're going to get one.

My tribal tattoo, for example, means a lot to me. It doesn't hurt that chicks love it.

So long, Kai. You were our last, best hope.

A better option would be to do the raping in a bald wig, and then throw it away. No one would expect a bald man to grow a full head of hair overnight.

Oh, I don't know. From a stupid point of view it makes sense. Recently released tattdumbass steals something, gets chased. Runs to recently ex-girlfriends with her new boyfriend. New boy friend and ex-girlfriend are stupid enough to help him run from the cops, after he admitted it to them (if that's true).

Ex-girlfriend, new boyfriend, welcome to jail with me!

Long sleeve shirt, no biggie.

Plus, tattoos are becoming more and more acceptable.  Working in an engineering firm, their are several engineers with excessive tattoos.  Quality of work trumps outdated social norms.

I work in an office, and I have full sleeves. I just wear long sleeve dress shirts, though in Fridays I might wear a polo. No one gives a shiat, except for a few old women.

It's not that they don't give a shiat man, they are just giving you those disapproving looks in the hopes that they can bed you.

You should go slap them on the ass.

I'm kind of curious as to how many of those engineers had those sleeves when they were initially hired though. It's one thing to get the tats after you've gotten the job and so forth, but there's still plenty of folks out there that won't hire someone with visible tats. A fair number of employers don't care if you get the tats afterwards though. After those engineers have been established for a while and have enough work to point at to prove their quality work I suppose it likely wouldn't be a big deal should they move to a different firm, but when going for that first job after school it may be a better idea to lay off the tats.

What kills me are the "Warped Tour body suits". This is when kids get only the hands/wrists/face/neck areas covered, in pathetic imitation of someone who either spent a few years and several grand hanging out at tattoo shops, or got put away for so long, they ran out of other places to ink. Not only did these kids fark up, but they managed to be the worst sort of posing douchebags while doing it.

I have No Idea why anybody want a Tattoo even less why they want it in the Flapping head.  only conclusion
I able to make is that IQ< More Tattoos,

As for girls nothing is turn off as much as that back plate or the butterfly, it make you look slutty but I guess that's why you get it, only tattoos I seen on girls that in nice are full back Japs, ones it say 2 things, Im committed to getting this and Im willing to be boned by a old fat guy ( Im kind of old and fat so that works )

Do you really think that a 40 or 50 year-old with a full sleeve is going to have a problem hiring a 20-something kid with a full sleeve?

/most of the young art school kids I see today are steering away from tattoos, which were common when I was in college a decade ago, and going for piercings (which are generally easily reversible).

Well, there's this.

I mean, some professions will never allow full sleeves of anything; but some areas will probably let you get away with a nice design or well-executed artwork. But a prison tat will never pass muster anywhere.

Tattoos *are* the social norm, soon to be outdated -- but that doesn't mean they're "uncool" or anything, so don't jump on me. It means only that they're widespread, common among most age groups, and not at all a form of rebellion or any of that. That viewpoint about tats is what's outdated.

I like branding on some people, but have no brands myself. I have plenty of real scars I've earned that remind me of things, and my individuality is expressed in a number of ways.

To each her own, though.
