There is a futuristic television commercial for a telephone book that is "yellow" and it features a bride who has a tattoo on her lower back. It spells "MIKE" and I think it is a great looking tattoo myself!

That is the only one I have seen that I like.

Yes, all of you keep posting, this is hopefully civilised and strong discussion, but it isn’t the Walton’s, and hopefully never will be.

So if you post and expect all will agree with you, no chance 8)

That’s what makes it good and honest.

Rude, am I am upset and offended, not

If you see me questioning anothers stance that made no sense or gives an opinion that did not hold water, fine you see me as rude.

Difference is I see rude as being able to post "thoughts" without expecting someone to question that thought process!

Oh and they are now deleted, and not by me

It is amazing to me that this thread has such long legs. I looked back and the one year anniversary of it is coming up next month. I think we should celebrate in one of the following ways.
1. Everyone post on that day in capital letters, I Am MAD AS HELL AND I AM NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE.
2. We all get a tasteless tattoo and do a show and tell.
3. We gather virtually and each post a reply that simply says; R.I.P.
4. We send someone we care about a voucher for tattoo removal.
5. We sponsor a contest for the best cruising tatto.

Any other ideas?

The actual date will be September 19th. I will be at seaa, and so I will defer my post to DBG.

OK, I'm going to throw this out there... But in Panama City, FL there are several tatto artists that advertise the "Tramp Stamp" tatto as a Panama City Butt Mustache". I'm not joking...

Don't shoot me... I'm just the messenger....

I do take exception to DayvidB is "a little condescending" I can be very condescending if it suits me

Anyway to celebrate the 1st anniversary, I am going to get a tattoo saying. " I don’t like what is written on my arm"

That’s the way ahead for those that don’t like tats, get one that says you don’t like them, it makes sense to me .

I must add in my 2 cents' worth...

DH and I were waiting in line for a Ferry at Port Angeles, WA, and two slightly more mature couples behind us were talking...

...note, I would, at first glance, place these couples as the "country club type"... the clothing was such as I cannot afford, etc.

and one lady was telling the other about having a tat on her ankle, and the other said (imagine your 50+ year old well-to-do aunt here):

"I'm getting a Sharpei tattooed on my hip. The older I get, the better it will look!"

Hi all, this is both interesting and funny. I was in the Navy but never got a tattoo. Both my son and daughter went the tattoo route in there mid twenties. If I had my way they would not have done it, but it was not my decision. I just hope they do not regret their decision as they grow older. Tramp stamp, I am not sure I like that reference made to any young woman. People sure like to label things. No tattoo but a lot of body hair. I am sure I upset some people around the pool when cruising, and they think I am the missing link.I am lucky my wife likes it or I would have a real problem. Mike

Now that is funny. She can show off her tattoo in her thong bikini on the cruise ship.

Since we're all sharing, I thought I'd add my very personal and cherised ink. Blast or praise away.

The bear is on the outside of my right calf; the other is on my left ankle.
During formal night on the last cruise, I got lots of positive comments on both, but especially the bear.

my daughter has 7 tatoos, the biggest one is her hibiscus on her back...i hate each and everyone of them someday i hope she'll be over 60, and when she is, she'll be embarrassed and saddened that she did that to herself. My husband is 42 and only has 2 one on each upper arm, and he is mortified by them both, and really each is very tasteful (one has just the head of a non snarling cougar and the other is a small wolf baying on a mountain) He litterally hates them so much i had to talk him out of laser surgery to remove them.

I have ALWAYS called them tramp stamps. My daughter go hers illegally at the age of 16.

When I was in high school I received a bit of advice: "don't do anything permanant". He meant don't: kill yourself (suicide, drugs, crazy driving...), become a father, get a tatoo... You can get a divorce but you are always a father. Don't get a tatoo because it may seem cool at the time but everything changes and you will be left some out of date, stupid thing on your body (this was before laser removal).

Remember when Farah hair was popular in the 70's and 80's. How would you like to be stuck with that hairdo today. How about the tight white jeans and colorful sportcoat of the Miami Vice era? Now apply that same thought to a tatoo.

A simple question here, what did you feel as a person at the time or times, that made you think...I have got to get these permanent thngs done to my body, what was so important that said that to you. Making the decision that I'm sure as a person that I can live with this mark on my body for the rest of my life? No blast here from me,,, just a question to help me understand why people do it.

Tatoo?...I won't even put a bumper sticker on the bumper of my truck!

I WILL put them on the windows because those are easy to remove.

My son coaches a youth football team (8-9 year olds) and I went to a game last Saturday.
I noticed 4 guys in their late 20's watching the game and tending to even younger kids.

Each of them had an identical tatoo on the inside of their ankle (my WIFE noticed this).
I asked them what it was...same club house? same gang? same military unit?

No...it was a Frat Tat.....I asked if they regretted it. Each said they were hammered when it was done and each regretted it.

There was definitely some "quiffy-ness".

Like DTW says you should put you kids first. So I got my daughter one for her 18th birthday!!!!! I don''t see the problem with it. I have several friends with full sleeves.

I have another friend was the words "your name" tattooed on his rear end. Just so he can approach women and say I have your name tattooed on my %#!.

Funny stuff.

The only reason I do not have a shark on my a$$ is because they thought I was too intoxicated. Who would ever think that an LA heavy metal club would have tatoo standars?

If he hates the tattoos that much he should have them removed. I also agree 16 years old is to young for a tattoo. I waited until around 24 years old. I don't regret the decision and I'm thinking of getting another one. People do have to realize gettung a tattoo is much easier then removing one, so think carefully.

Default I just dont think they look nice in formal dresses

I have often thought about getting a small one on my ankle. But since I go to alot of formal events and am required to wear formal attire, I just dont think it would look very nice with a formal dress. I do see ladies who have tatt's on their sholders, necks, legs, arms, back, and they wear revealing formal dresses. Also I work in a office where I tend to wear alot of skirts and we are required to cover up tattoo's with a band aide or even larger covering if needed.

My daughter has 6 tattoos and has gone to events with me and no one has ever said anything but I still felt a little unconfortable.

I am not sure what could be considered tastess however. One mans Art is another mans tasteless tattoo. I guess its all in the eye of the beholder. I do have to admit that I am quilty of looking more at a person who is covered in tattoos just as I am likely to raise my eyebrows at a swimsuit that does not cover as much as would be proper.
