SWMBO = She Who Must Be Obeyed

There is also the much less used SWTSMBO ( She Who Thinks She Must Be Obeyed ) but its use is usually when the fight starts :lol: - use with extreme caution :eek:

Not a big fan of tats, it seems to be the in thing now especially with younger people .
Remember once done there on for life, removing them is dificult, painful, and expensive.
I know some that feel the need to remove them now but it's all too dificult so be sure it's what you won't and think about in time to come if you really won't them.
Oh well this is just my opinion, and I also know some that are very passionate about their tats and would not be without them.
Everybody to their own.

Cheers
Rob

^^ ha ha cheers Chris! :thumb: .........

^ yeah, to each their own Rob... As ya say, they're not for everybody, and I agree that of late they seem to be turning into a "trend/fashion" thing and some of the tatts people are getting are just plain ridiculous... But again, it's a personal choice... I don't care either way if someone has ink or not... Personally, I've sat through four "therapy sessions" (as a mate/one of my tattooists, used to call them :lol: ), and have Ned Kelly with a Rebel moon on my left arm (2 separate tatts, made into one..), a tiger's head inside a Celtic design on left chest, and a demon ripping out of my right arm that I drew/designed myself... I have designed a couple more that I want to get done eventually, when funds allow...

I'm another that can take them or leave them, couldn't care less that a person has tatts or not they are just not for me.

Whilst I appreciate the art form, I also equally appreciate great drawing and painting on paper, and equally know a crap drawing when I see one also but as I have never seen a great 50 year old tattoo as opposed to great 50 year old drawing and I really don't think I ever will , I will continue to pass on them ;)

So, Lets make a sticky of this thread and post pics of the same tatts in 50 years time to prove me wrong :lol: :lol:

Tatts are very addictive.

My first two where backyard jobs and came out pretty bad,went to a shop
to get them fixed and ended up half covered.3/4 grand later and still want more.
I'm thinking of an oriental 3/4 or half sleeve,gets bloody expensive though.

A word of advice for anyone wanting tatts,don't get any on your hands neck or face,
most good tattoo shops won't do it anyway unless you're already covered.

Oh and don't get your ribs done.haha

ahhhhh the tattoo......
the humour of seeing silly youngsters ruin their lives, thinking they are something special or being tough.
trying to prove some futile point and certainly will live to regret that moment.
tattoos have place if they have some real meaning.....
those foolish ones who have those stupid shapes that mean nothing.
Yes I hate them.

^So... do you discriminate or automatically stereotype those who do have them...?

What about late 30's and over ... ? People who have had them done before the "fashion"...? I do agree that most young people these days are doing them as a "fashion"... however, not all are...

By hate, do you mean you simply won't get one, or look down on people who do...?

As I've stated, I don't care either way if someone has them or not... But I certainly don't look down on people who don't..

And that leads me to a simple joke/saying... What's the difference between someone with a tattoo, and someone without? ... The person WITH a tattoo couldn't care either way...

I'm proud of my tattoos...

Why come into a thread about tattoo's if you don't like them? Everyone likes different things.

But i guess, 98% of people are judgemental so oh well, aye. :)
