Tattoos? Nah!

Not for me. I dont want no tatoo. And I dont think they are hot on ladies at all.

I dont want my girl tattooed. NO sir.

the most i can tolerate is maybe a tramp stamp.

rats! How do I convince my boss to write something about it? Cool, thanks for the link, Tommy.

Tattoos are great down the line for anyone who wants to remember how stupid they were in their youth.

From hanzismatter, a blog:

“my girlfriend has this tattoo and she thinks it says friendship.” (醜 = ugly)

“My brother recently got a tattoo that he believe translates to ‘fast and furious.’” (迅 = fast, 笨 = dumb)

“My brother in law thinks this says ‘trust in God’.” (神信用 = godly credit, as in credit score)

And last, 女神 gets split into three different characters:

Just say no to Chinese tattoos.

Well, just say no to any tatto whose meaning you ignore. I seem to recall that in Japanese the words “ninja” and “hemorroid” are awfully similar. Also, change one letter of many words in a number of languages and you’ll have a problem, especially if you write it indelebly on your body.

I believe it’s hemorrhoid (痔) and samurai (侍), actually. Why would anyone go for a tattoo they don’t fully understand?

Exactly my (and possibly your) point. They shouldn’t.

My opinion on them is not based upon what I ,personally think . It is about what others may think about the wearers. I fear that if you have one done at a young age,you may change your Job/Partner,many things,making the tattoo totally unsuitable.I know all the people with Tattoos will say “I don’t care what others think”.
That is a fine sentiment but naïve.
If you are settled,mature and know where you are in Life…do what you want. If you are starting out in this crazy World,you are potentially limiting the choices,later on. The Girl/Boy of your dreams may hate them,a potential employer may hate them. If you get one.I feel you have not considered the future properly.
I don’t mind some Tattoos…I just remember in the 70s I would have had my Platform shoes welded on to my feet …if it was possible. Thought they were trendy then.
Times change,Tattos do not. Just consider carefully.

Yeah, my mom got one in her fifties, didn’t slow her down one bit. On the other hand I know several people who now have to wear long sleeves to work if they want to keep their jobs.

I don’t care one way or the other, but the young guy who works in the convenience store down the street from my house has effectively ensured a lifelong career as a convenience store worker with the tattoos on his fingers, hands and upper neck (not to mention those giant hoop things in his ears). If that’s what he wants, that’s fine, all I know is that what I wanted at his age (18) was very different than what I wanted when I hit my 30s.

(I think the character 媽 would make a great tattoo for a well-muscled arm!)

Driving through Orofino, Idaho one day in my SL MB with wife unit. She spies a tat shop and I am forced to stop. She browses the albums and spots a tat of Donald Duck. Since that has been my nick from day one, I was coerced (forced) to drop trou. in the shop, in full view of the sidewalk, hope nobody was going to lunch, and get a Donald tat on my ass.
WAY TOO MUCH INFORMATION

On the other hand, Chinese symbols that make noo sense and a full body tats just look ridiculous. Possible exception the the Maori aboriginals in New Zealand. If I was a a new comer to the island from England, I would have pissed and soiled my pants as I ran.
EDIT:
By the way, I spent some mountain time with the Amai First Nations folks. There are still a few women with full face tats. What a wonderful experience. Certainly, one in a lifetime.

I used to play shows in a rock band, so I’ve seen many crazy tattoo’s, I don’t mind them at all… i actually like the tattooed pin-up type (a la suicide girls-esque) as much as I like a no-tattooed, calm, professional office lady.

Maybe that’s a vegan hot dog. Maybe…

Hehe…

My uncle sent me a picture of his friend’s Chinese character tattoo. His friend told him it means “Friendship” in Chinese, but my uncle decided to consult with an expert on it, so he asked me.

I told him that it truly does mean friendship, BUT it’s not a Chinese character!

That’s a really special friendship and doesn’t take an expert to see it. Or maybe my mind is just seeing things.

Took place like three weeks ago in Songshan Cultural Park.
