Do You Tattoo?

I should be doing my college homework for my web design class... and laundry... and dishes... and other chores, but I decided to come talk to you instead. Don't you feel special? You wanna talk about tattoos? O.K., let's talk about tattoos then.

Do you have a tattoo? I don't, but I have thought about getting one. If I did get one, it would be very small and be somewhere it could easily be covered. Of course, I've considered a tattoo of a dragonfly (shocked, aren't you?) or a butterfly, or a small dragonfly and butterfly together. I know, I'm just full of surprises.

My tattoo would be small and simple, but some people who give tattoos are amazingly talented artists. I've seen some tattoos which are an almost exact replica of a photograph. Those tattoos are really unbelievable, and it would take a lot of talent and skill to be able to create that.

Hmmm, that's a thought... my own photograph as a tattoo. How cool would that be? No, I'm not going to run out and get a tattoo of my pond (hehe). Honest. Just maybe something of the critters I photograph while back at the pond. Hey, I could get The Three Amigos raccoon photo as a tattoo! O.K., maybe not.

There are, of course, different opinions and views on tattoos. My dad, for example, is very against my getting a tattoo. Yet, he even has a tattoo himself!!! The reason he's against my getting one isn't because he is actually against tattoos, but because many other people are, and he doesn't want me to be judged. Some people think tattoos are degrading to your body or disgraceful. Yet, I believe that tattoos have come a long way, and it has actually become an art. Some of the tattoos I've seen recently are nothing short of beautiful works of art, and I can't help but respect and admire the talent of the artist.

What do you think? Are you for or against tattoos? Do you have a tattoo? If so, what's your tattoo of?

Woof! Hey I want one! But Keeper said it would be useless on me since nobody will be able to see it. Maybe I should shave my fur.

I don't think I could ever get a tattoo... Whatever I'd pick I wouldn't like in a month or two. I'd be better of drawing on myself with a sharpie :P

Never got a tattoo and probably never will. 1. I could never pick a design that would be with me for the rest of my life. 2. I'trm too much of a wimp!

I'm not a person who thought she would ever have a tattoo, but I got my first one at 42 yr old and my second at 43 (this year). I often forget they're there, lol. I'm wanting one on the back of my neck but kinda chicken of how much it might hurt there. . .
