  1. I counted 22 tattoo removal clinics in my area. From what I could determine, they’re all very busy these days. :)

  2. I’m not 100% against tattoos if they are attractive, and present an interesting “message” (whatever that might be), but I generally am put off by those that seem to have what I would call “gang” or tribal type of tattoos – the image or message. And what I definitely hate in regards to tattoos are in any way religious, including crosses of any type.

    But I do have a “burning” question regarding tattoos that are done over quite a bit of the body:
    Why do a tattoo that either you will never see or you need a mirror to see them (and even then it’s in reverse)?
    I don’t understand the reasoning to have tattoos where only someone else can see them. If that’s the case, why do you do them in the first place?

    1. Why anyone gets tattoos and where they get them differs from person to person. I have four myself that I still value every bit as much as when I got my first one 18 years ago.

      One of them is on my left shoulder-blade, it’s a cigarette in an ashtray in front of a pint of beer with initials in the smoke coming off the cigarette. I can’t see it without a mirror and even then it requires a bit of effort or a second mirror to see, but I wouldn’t have it anywhere else on my body.

      You see, it’s a memory tattoo. I got it about a month after my best friend died almost 11 years ago. The cigarette is the brand he smoked, the ashtray is the same as the ones in the bar we hung out at most of the time, and the initials are his. I got it on my back because he was always on my back about something.

      As far as people not liking my ink, I don’t see that as my problem. If that’s why someone chooses not to be my friend or be in a relationship with me, it’s pretty clear they’re the type of superficial person I try to avoid in the first place.

      1. “If that’s why someone chooses not to be my friend or be in a relationship with me, it’s pretty clear they’re the type of superficial person I try to avoid in the first place.”

        OR, it could well be the person with certain tattoos are just as superficial, if not more so, than the person who may not like certain tattoos. Like, for example, those who tattoo a LARGE CROSS or IMAGE OF JESUS on their bodies. That is incredibly superficial, anyway you want to look at it.

  3. A very handsome lad, fit body, lovely butt, and hung like a dinosaur, but the graffiti is a total turn off. FYI, extensive piercings are also a no-no. The human body is irresistible as it comes from the factory, no defacings or perforations needed, thank you very much.

    1. “The human body is irresistible as it comes from the factory,”

      Is that what your boss (“god”) says? And does he pay overtime? :-)))))

      1. That’s what I say. My opinion comes from years and years of playing with lots and lots of human bodies. I have found them to be – irresistible.

          1. Why did Hannibal Lecter buy another freezer?

            (He needed more elbow room)

  4. To each his own, but I have yet to see a tattoo that still appears handsome thirty years on.
