dpzum1: Bedstead Polisher: I'm always puzzled by face tattoos. I saw a woman on the bus yesterday. She was attractive, but had brightly coloured hair and some tattoos on her face that were clearly decorative. She walked through the bus, polite, excusing herself as she squeezed past, so she might be a lovely person. But honestly, my first impression was that she was an idiot for tattooing her face.Personally, I've never been a fan of tattoos, but I've realized that in this day and age, that majority of people have them. While I can't really judge people for having tattoos I find myself judging people based on where the tattoos are. And in a few years, it may be commonplace to have visible tattoos and no one will judge.I know I'll have people telling me that I shouldn't judge, but it's human nature, you all do it for various reasons. Plus I've known enough tattooed people to know I shouldn't completely dismiss them because they are my friends and family members as well.But I will never understand why people would permanently mark an easily viewed part of their body with a grotesque Garbage Pail Kid.I got my tats long ago...before they were considered "in". And, two of them are visible, on my forearms.I make it a point, and always have, not to judge a book by it's cover. Same as someone being overweight, too tall, too short, "weird looking", whatever. If someone is going to judge me by my tats, and assume I'm someone that I'm not, that's their loss.
Begoggle: All tattoos are stupid.
Begoggle: Delta1212: From the page:Am I A Racist? Depends On What You Mean By "Racist"It used to be that a "racist" was simply someone who hated others for their skin color. By that definition, I am not, nor have I ever been, a racist.So that's a yes, then.Sounds like Farkers who try to argue over the definition of pedophile.
Whatthefark: No mention of the Pass Around Girl?Extremely NSFW!Did you hear me...NSFW!
italie: They can't all be this awesome...[www.angryasianman.com image 640x306]
Dinkledort: These days people who have no tattoos are more nonconformist that the 60% of young people who think they're rebellious and super special because they got one.
gonzoduke: I agree with all of them except #2. Tattoos to me should have personal meaning to them. My 2 memorials to my deceased father and brother are beautiful and I get compliments on them all the time. (ones and owl and the other is an eagle) They have their initials under each one. If that makes me tacky or an idiot so be it. I think the author is an arsehole.See, I can be judgmental too.
Tarl3k: lewismarktwo: Imma get a tattoo that says 'tattoo'. Chicks are gonna love it.I hope it is the Chinese symbol for tatoo, that would be SUPER meta :)

d23: [img.fark.net image 700x511]you have to be a BIG Watchman fan to do that.
buntz: I love Christmas Abbott, beautiful girl. Great competitor.But the tattoo makes her look like someone drew on her with magic marker and she didn't bother to wash it off.It's not a deal breaker for me, but I'm not a fan.[carrotsncake.com image 800x581]
99.998er: I would totally trust her.[chimpmania.com image 400x261]
Canton: Can I judge them to be tastefully cute? Because they are.
oh_please: The thing is, most people who get tattoos really aren't doing it for some deep personal reason, they're doing it to say, "LOOK AT MEEEE!" Even the people who get one in places that are covered up by normal clothing, they freaking can't wait to show you. I get it, you want attention, hell, I'll give it to you, whatever.
gunther_bumpass: Bunch of tightassed tits in this thread, jesus.
Fark_Guy_Rob: oh_please: The thing is, most people who get tattoos really aren't doing it for some deep personal reason, they're doing it to say, "LOOK AT MEEEE!" Even the people who get one in places that are covered up by normal clothing, they freaking can't wait to show you. I get it, you want attention, hell, I'll give it to you, whatever.Sure, sure. But the same can be said of everything. New hair cut? LOOK AT MEEE! Hours at the gym for those washboard abs....that's just so people can see them. That fancy car you bought, that prestigous job you talk about, the 10k you ran in to 'fight cancer'....it's all just a one big 'look at me' after another. Why do academic types hang their degrees on the wall? LOOK AT ME. Why do religious people wear chains/beads/icons...LOOK AT ME. Makeup, fashion, anything branded people display intentionally, it's all just LOOK AT ME. Whether it's the $1200 suit or the $250 nikes or whatever else.I don't see that a reason to be for or against tattoos though.
BlackMtnMan: Just cut to the chase, and get a tat that says "Look at ME!!! I'm a brain dead attention whore" Save yourself some time.
nitefallz: Stopped reading after: In It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia-the only sitcom of the past decade worth watching

craigdamage: I was never cool enough to get a tattoo.46 now and totally un-inked.
Mr. Fuzzypaws: Here are my sea lions. They do mean something to me. Obviously I like sea lions. And they are my Zoo tattoos (they are from the Sea Lion Cove sign at the Zoo). I won't bore you all with what the Zoo means to me but I'm alive because of it.[i158.photobucket.com image 850x634]Judge away.
