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.

Thanks for the Illustration d23. :)

Tattoos are up to taste. My tastes? I am not a huge fan of tattoos, but I don't really hate them either, but I would prefer someone covered head to toe in tattoos than someone with one really stupid tattoo in a stupid location (see Cute Little Princess above). I also don't mind them if they have some sort of meaning to the person who has them. At least it makes interesting conversation. Unlike some that have no meaning other than you were drunk one night and you can't even remember if you picked it yourself (again see little princess tattoo).

Locations that are bad to me:
Anything above the neckline. If you wear a plunging neckline, it includes that area too. With Face tattoos being about the worst spot of all.
Hands are bad.
Anything below the hips very tacky and usually the home of bad tattoos with no meaning.
Belly is pretty bad as well.

Gray Area:
Lower arms. This location is great if you have a great tattoo and great tattoos only.


The dude who wrote the article was a bit bitter and harsh about them though, at least some of the locations. If you are not forcing me to get the tattoo and you are not one of my children, then I don't care all that much about where they are.

1) Tribals - The only thing they say to me is that you wanted a tattoo, had money to blow, but had no idea what to get. Or that your friends were forcing you to get a tattoo and if you didn't pick one, they were going to pick one for you. They range from not interesting at all to moderately cool looking. You get a 0 for creativity, but you pass on the stupidity test. A girl with a good tribal on one shoulder can be pretty awesome though if done right and one the full shoulder, not just a spot on the shoulder.

2) Faces - I am totally cool with faces if they are of permanent family (Parents, Grandparents, Siblings, Children), especially if they are deceased. Spouses are OK, if they are deceased only. Otherwise you are just asking for Murphy's law to kick in. Never ever get a tattoo of a girlfriend.

3) Sub-cultural is a very grey area. Who am I and who are you to say what is an important subculture to anyone else? Generally if we are in completely different subcultures, I will likely never have to deal with you in any meaningful way anyway. It's their body and their money. If they want a My Little Pony tattoo, laugh with your inside voice and mind your own business.

4) Koi Carp have meaning, if you are Japanese and likely Yakuza. See #3, Sub-Cultural.  http://www.searchbodyart.com/the-meanings-and-traditions-of-koi-fish- t attoos-in-modern-body-art/

5) Quotes. I do agree here. Quotes can be kinda stupid to look at. Again, use the inside chuckle and go about your own business.

The tattoos that bother me, other than the meaningless ones that are also silly, are the ones that look like small unknown trademarks (which make you look like you were either kidnapped as a child and sold into slavery, or you are the property of a pimp) and the ones of Asian characters that you have no idea what they actually mean (or if you think you do, but are wrong).

skinink: Let's see:

PHYSICALLY: The risk of getting a disease like Hepatitis from a tattoo artist that is not careful about sterilizing his/her equipment, the pain involved in getting one, the bleeding afterward
That's why you go to a reputable artist. They sterilize and use new needles for all customers. They really don't hurt much. They also don't bleed much at all. Maybe a little while it is being done, and it is stopped before they wash it down and put on a bandage.

MENTALLY: Why would anyone think they need a tattoo to make themselves "better"? Also, if you get a tattoo because you think it's "cool" then you're applying the standards of the world.
What's wrong with "I like this and think it looks nice on me?" Seems to be what most people I know use as their reasoning. That's why I have all of mine.

SOCIALLY: People who have tattoos are often looked down upon as rednecks or low-lifes simply because they have tattoos, and people who have visible tattoos often get passed over for jobs by people who believe tattoos present an unprofessional appearance.


Physically:  Go to a a tattoo artist/shop that you've researched and has good word-of-mouth.  When I was looking for someone to do a big piece on my shoulder blade, I looked at other people with really nice ink and asked them where they got it.  And then asked the state of the shop.

Mentally:  I never thought my tattoos make me "better".  There was nothing wrong with me to begin with  Tattoos to me are simply like jewelry--I wear them because they're pretty but made sure they can be covered up when need be because there's a double standard in offices when it comes to men vs. women having tattoos.

Socially:  The only way you're seen as a redneck is when you ACT like a redneck.  When I'm at a party, even among strangers, I don't hide the tattoos.  And, since I have actual social skills, nobody treats me any differently.  I WILL agree with you regarding visible tattoos in the professional world (see my above comment re: double standards).

Unless someone has tattoos on their face, neck, or hands.  Then, regardless of gender, they're (rightfully) considered unprofessional.

dolphinsgonwild: Tribal tattoos? Really? I live on Kauai and even the local kids have tribal tattoos. Always fun to watch the face of a big Samoan standing in line behind a bright white tourist with a tribal.


It's honestly nothing but fratboy douchebags ruining it for everyone else.  The tribal patterns and designs are like abstract art or any of those art styles that just make shapes and patterns without trying to necessarily look like anything particular.  Quite frankly they can look quite nice, even if not for everyone.

The problem is
A: It copies body art from primitive tribes and foreign cultures in a condescending, devoid-of-context-and-meaning, bottled up and labeled sort of way.
B: it is done by douchebag fratboys who get the tattoos for stupid reasons and behave in stupid ways, poisoning the well for everyone else.

It's like how the Swastika was/is a symbol of auspiciousness, enlightenment, and good stuff like that.  Then the Nazis used it and yeah, I don't need to continue this explanation, do I?

On a larger front, tattoos are...meh.  They aren't for me, I have nothing to say that permanent skin ink would help say; they sometimes look ugly to me, but nobody says I have to fark you when you're done up in skulls.  They sometimes look nice to me, but then they're usually small and low-key.

The only rule that I think people need to understand before getting inked is that nothing you can possibly do or say will make you truly unique from the vast teeming mass of humanity.  Even the monkey's anus/navel tattoo has more than one person doing it or a variation of it.  Unless you are one of those people blessed with enough skill, strength, and blind stinking luck to have some record-setting ability you are not an individual.  And no amount of ink is going to change that.  Get something you like, get something that feels good because it feels good, never get something just because it makes you "different" because it won't make you different enough, and if you don't like who you are it won't fix that either.

I think if I had to get ink for some inexplicable reason, I'd go with a dragon.  Because fark you, I like dragons.

Or maybe a Coatl, because rainbows.

If I answered 'no' to all of these. then what?

And can you really equate any of them to getting inked? I mean, you might as well as equate breeding to getting a tat and be done with it.

I understand the stance of 'it's my effing skin, mind your own beeswax', cos it's true, and should shut up pretty much anyone deriding your ink choices. It might not be able to stop 90% of people who look at you from judging you, but that's just people.

It's like getting all pissy about others judging you for being permenantly unwashed, when it's your choice to be that way, and you know fine well about how people judge other people who stink real bad.

IMHO, there is no such thing as a good looking tattoo, nor is there any reason for me to pretend to like them. I just plain outright dislike tattoos, and will say as much when presented with someone who instigates conversation regarding their own ink.

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.

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.


Bingo.  I spent my 20's in Portland and I quickly realized that the most avant-garde thing I could do with regards to tattoos or other modifications was nothing at all.

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.


I don't judge people on tats; I pick much more arbitrary things - like your lack of approved Fark links

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.

Don't forget random Chinese words.  Sure, you think you're being deep because you have "Opportunity, fate, and karma" written on your arm.  But every Chinese person is laughing as they see you because you really have "Kung Pao Chicken, Does this tattoo make may wrist look fat, and I blow goats for fun and profit."

/Obviously, this does not apply to actual Chinese people.

Let's see:

PHYSICALLY: The risk of getting a disease like Hepatitis from a tattoo artist that is not careful about sterilizing his/her equipment, the pain involved in getting one, the bleeding afterward
That's why you go to a reputable artist. They sterilize and use new needles for all customers. They really don't hurt much. They also don't bleed much at all. Maybe a little while it is being done, and it is stopped before they wash it down and put on a bandage.

MENTALLY: Why would anyone think they need a tattoo to make themselves "better"? Also, if you get a tattoo because you think it's "cool" then you're applying the standards of the world.
What's wrong with "I like this and think it looks nice on me?" Seems to be what most people I know use as their reasoning. That's why I have all of mine.

SOCIALLY: People who have tattoos are often looked down upon as rednecks or low-lifes simply because they have tattoos, and people who have visible tattoos often get passed over for jobs by people who believe tattoos present an unprofessional appearance.

Guess what, Fark?  While I don't encourage tattoos, especially on women because it tends to mark up their already masterpiece-like bodies, I have accepted-the good tats-on women.

In fact, one I hope to know better has got a huge tattoo. *shrugs* It's tasteful and she's gorgeous. What can I do?
