Sorry to be the one to break it to you but tasteful and tat's are mutually exclusive.

Wot he said. You guys are bullshitting yourselves about how cool you are: res ipsa loquitor. 

What is "class" really.  In some circles I'm a piece of shit (no really I am) because of my tattoos, but in other company I am one classy motherfucker because I don't have hand, face, or neck tats. Like everything in life it's all relative. And btw I'm as cool as a fan so go fuck yourselves.

Fans generate heat.  The people downstream of them are, in comparison, cool. 

I'm sure you are proud of your tattoos and that they are the height of tastefulness and sophistication in certain circles.

I regert starting this thread in the sense that some took it so personally. 4 pages later, I now realize there are two quite different types of tattoos. There are the tasteful, classy ones like Adam Levine and other stars, and the other kind displayed by bartenders, waitresses, and short order cooks.

I stand corrected but wonder how you tell the cool kids from the trailer trash?

Usually talking to them for 5 minutes or so will tell you all that you need to know. 

Oh wait, people don't talk much face to face nowadays.

Saw a young guy with his PA area code on his arm. Turned out he was totally outdone by Adam Levine's big "California" on his abdomen. 

I'm just not seeing the coolness.

That explains it. I don't know who/have never listened to moron 5, I have never watched "The Voice", and I always skip the half time show (a man has to pee and replenish snacks sometime!!)

So if he doesn't sail, surf, hike, dive, do woodworking, or - as of late, play pickleball - clearly Mr Levine and I have sufficiently different interests.....................that we are unlikely to run into each other...........

I'm good.........

Dear Body Art Professionals,

 

Good afternoon,

 

The FDA is alerting consumers, tattoo artists, and retailers of the potential for serious injury from use of tattoo inks that are contaminated with bacteria. As you know, tattoo inks contaminated with microorganisms can cause infections and lead to serious health injuries when injected into the skin during a tattooing procedure, since there is an increased risk of infection any time the skin barrier is broken.

 

The following tattoo inks have been recalled because they are contaminated with microorganisms:

  • Scalpaink SC, Scalpaink PA, and Scalpaink AL basic black tattoo inks manufactured by Scalp Aesthetics (all lots)
  • Dynamic Color - Black tattoo ink manufactured by Dynamic Color Inc  (lots 12024090 and 12026090)
  • Solid Ink-Diablo (red) tattoo ink manufactured by Color Art Inc. (dba Solid Ink) (dba Antone's Ink) (lot 10.19.18)

Oh heck Crab you didn’t push my button.....I hardly have any buttons anymore. :lol: I have no problem with folks who have different views than I do.....I guess a lot depends on my impression of the motivation and certainly the presentation. I have no issue with how you presented this. I just disagree. 

Kennedy’s is a butterfly.....Edison had 5 dots meaning - we don’t know but he did invent the first version of the electric tattoo pen - go figure.....and Churchill had an anchor on his forearm. My Pop had Mom’s name on his forearm, one of my sons has the tree of life on his calf, a daughter has my pops name on her hip with an RIP...they were very close. If it’s a matter of the amount of ink.....as I mentioned, one of my firefighters has a lot of ink..much of it in homage to his heritage. Sure, some dirtbags have a lot of ink...but some stellar folks also have a lot of ink. I think it’s a false correlation. 

Anyway, I understand the tendency to associate those behaviors with ink...but I think it’s a false association. BTW - I have no ink.....

Kara Kennedy had a little blue sailing ship down near her ankle. I forget which leg.

Well... when you get old, you look like shit anyway, so the ink spreading won’t make any difference there.

And these days, there are laser removal options, or just have something else inked over the ink you don’t like.

if you don’t believe in having a tattoo, then don’t. Why do you care about someone else’s choice?

I get tired of looking at ugly people whether inked or not but there ain’t a damn thing I can do about ugly motherfuckers.... except not shop at Walmart.

My wife is sick shitless of seeing fat, beer bellied, hairy, ugly men go shirtless. But society allows that and shames fat women. WTF.

As for your example, only them what can afford quality plastic surgeons look like your example when they get old. Which is damned few. Wonder how good she looks up close, even so... 

Regardless, my point stands: aint NOMB. And speaking of DILLIGAF... and beauty...

Ugly people don't do it deliberately. Tats are a self inflicted wound.

As to your second line - couldn't agree more. It should be illegal. My wife always says "put a shirt on" when she sees one - sometimes loud enough for them to hear. :D

Ms Drachenberg is well-off BECAUSE of tattoos. I first saw her on the tv show, and her work is just gorgeous, and she was considered a maven in the field. After the tv shows, she has branched out into branding makeup. That lil gal is fairly bright, it appears to me, and I say good for her

I'm actually quite partial to tattoos. If you've done an Ironman for example or happen to have a very creative, original, funny idea... It's up to you. As for smoking, Marlboro and BAT have to give Ferrari and McLaren their $$$$ sooooo yeah. It's also an amazing business concept. To create a product with insanely low barriers to entry that customers (like insurance) will most likely be forced to buy again and again. The fact that PMI still makes 80 billion a year with no advertising and not even being able to put their logo on packets in the EU speaks for itself really. In fact, why doesn't sailing anarchy create its own brand, we could fund an AC team :D
