    I have noticed that some of the best guys are those with bodies that are a real treat to admire. I can not understand why guys with beautiful skin and handsome looks want to ruin their skin with all that crap drawn on it. Do they ever stop to think how it will look when they are 80 years old. It will look like hell. Guys keep America beautiful and let us see you in your natural hotness.

    Maybe some of the "beautiful people" getting tattoos think of themselves as ugly, and graffiti accordingly.

    ...if you choose and design your tattoos carefully they will enhance your body's shape and look and not take away from it. But I will admit I have seen a couple of bad tattoos in my day, that made me wonder what they were thinking when they got them.

    I still think any tattoo is hotter than none. icon_biggrin.gif

    If I ever had a tattoo, it would be something simple like a yellow rose of Texas on my deltoid or the Wrangler jeans patch on my right ass cheek.

    Because not everyone gets tattoos for "beauty reasons" ? some ppl get tattoos because they MEAN SOMETHING. Tattooing is an ART that, like much art, is bastardized by common folk (most tramp stamps or 'tribal' stuff is usually just for looks)

    And who the hell cares what it looks like when you're 80? How many ppl run around cruising and trying to look good at 80?

    I think tattoos are amazing and if i decide on something important and pretty enough to tattoo - i WILL do it.

    Who cares what it's going to look like when your 80? Your whole body is gonna look like crap. You should be more concerned about how they look now. Tattoos aren't really as permanent anymore. You can get special inks that are 'easy' to remove, in addition to all the lazers/creams to remove them.

    I prefer the simple and/or tribal type tattoos. Drawings and faces can turn out bad real quick.

    I plan on getting tattooed when I am finally able to hit the gym consistantly and have something to finally put a tattoo on. I have no idea what though.

    First I will say that I am one of those guys with tattoos. I don't believe in any way that I have ruined my body by having them. I have people come up to me all the time to compliment me on them and I am sure that there are others that are disgusted by them. It is a very personal choice and each one of mine has great meaning. I have absolutely no regrets on getting any of them wether others like them or not.

    Tattoos are hot! Granted there are many bad ones out there, but if its well thought out and you take care of your body, more often then not I find it as an enhancement to a guys sex appeal. Also, as others have mentioned, tattoos can be very personal and meaningful.
    I only have one and not only did I draw it out myself, but there is a lot of personal meaning and emotion attached to it.

    Well I see that there is a gap between good taste and crap. Continue with the so called "art" and may you look like shit.

    seriously. I don't mind tattoos. I just mind the fact that everyone is getting them because apperantly now it's the thing (thank you Miami Ink). so...i've seen AMAZING tattoos, but at the same time I've seen hackneyed (tribal, tramp stamps, a music note) to the extremely pointless (pacman, a Britto design, an ex's name, etc). It all depends on how the person works it...and how sure they are about it. I wonder how all the hot guys with multiple tats in the hardcore scene will look like when they're eighty?

    As i say to my mother when she comments on my piercing jewelery.. 'its lucky there mine and not yours then isnt it'
    Someone elses body art is for themselves not for you to approve of.

    To each their own. I have tattoos and I am not really concerned with how they will look down the road because each one is something I have chosen. Like anything in this world, some will like them, and others won't. I invite everyone I know to share their opinion about them. After all that is part of what makes conversation, sparks thoughts and gives a dynamic to my relationships. Some of my friends like them, and some don't. I am no less of a person because I express myself through tattoos. Those friends of mine who don't care for them know that and they value my friendship for what it is... and what it's not. What it's not is my tattoos.

    I see things like this: I can live in today or I can ponder tomorrow.

    I choose to live...

    So many people have tattoos and piercings in the Seattle and only few are alike. It's really cool IMHO. It speaks to the people of this region. There's this in your face independence about Seattle that I love so much. It's charming, expressive, engaging, inviting, and fucking real. I love people who live that way. I want a tattoo myself but I'm still debating on what and where.

    Wow, do we really have to start another tattoo thread? There was one just three days ago.

    To the OP who incidentally doesn't even have a picture, I would just urge you to go and travel a bit, see the world and see the many cultures who do treat tattooing as an art; cultures no less than yours; there is an ancient history of tattooing which predates 'tramp stamps' and 'tribal armbands'. They are done because they have great significance and meaning. And yes, they still look great in old age, Maori Te Moko looks extremely dignified on elders, and Samoan tattoos as well. The Traditional Japanese tattoos are really beautiful and conform to the shape of the body so they never lose their grace as long as the person doesn't let their body go to shit - in which case, it doesn't matter what they have done to their body, it will look like shit anyway.

    If you really want to discuss tattoos, go read the previous threads about it and get informed. Otherwise, you're just a kid trying to piss people off with your small-mindedness, no-one asked you what you thought about them, you're volunteering your haterism unprovoked. What's more you're 25, get some life experience before you try to tell people what to do, mate.

    and Mikeytopwhatever; that's just the stupidest logic. I mean, really...... ha!

    I have traveled 19 countries in my life and I see the tatoo valued mostly in third world countries as tribal IDs. Let me ask you to do some travel to a dermatologist and see what he has to say. Tatoo is not art. True art can not be duplicated. This so called "art" is produced for the most part with templets. If that is art then the cow pasture is full of art. Careful!!! don't step in the art when you view cow art!

    "Do they ever stop to think how it will look when they are 80 years old?"

    oh, and your skin is going to be flawless and radiantly attractive when YOU'RE 80 years old? lol no one looks good at 80, and no one's trying to attract any one by the time one's skin gets saggy, thin, and littered with age spots- so its a moot point.

    "let us see you in your natural hotness."
    your idea of "hotness" seems very surface level and picky. there's more to a guy than his skin- or don't you agree?

    and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. you may dislike tattoos, but many others don't share your sentiments, or find the opposite to be true for them. one can't please everyone- and no one should try to- the only person in this entire world worth pleasing is oneself. everyone else comes and goes, and if you're a good person with any degree of genetic blessing, there will always be people attracted to you.




    one also can't help but notice the OP who's judging others so thoroughly has neglected to show his own potentially pug-ugly face on his profile- or even a half-hearted torso shot lol. one wonders where his moral high-ground is, or what certifies him as the final word in scoring the "hotness" of others lol

    Tell that to Warhol & Dali or any other "true artist" for that matter.
    Their art is duplicated and reimagined constantly. While it
    may or may not be duplicated by the original artist. Good
    and sometimes bad art has been duplicated for centuries.

    Not ALL tattoo art is made from a template. Many artists, including
    those in Japan ( not a 3rd world country btw. ) do tattoo art freehand.
    I would ask you to pay closer attention on your travels and try
    not to generalize things that you don't understand. Perhaps
    you yourself are standing in the cow pasture ? Gut reactions
    and opinions of other cultures and customs suggests a selfish
    superiority that is not only insulting to the culture being critiqued
    but is a vulgar display of your ignorance.

    Your argument over what is art and what isn't is one of personal
    opinion not fact. Music is an art form as is film and photography.
    These forms are " duplicated" constantly.

    well struck, czarodziej. and you make a very keen observation. it is easy to criticize others for their tastes when you hide behind a mask of anonymity. i believe munchingzombie was the first to share with me the 'greater internet fuckwad' theory, which seems to fully apply here.

    and brokenbeats' assessment on the actual purpose of this thread seems to ring very true, "volunteering your haterism unprovoked". but the op is still fairly young, so maybe he hasn't understood the deeper meaning of personal symbols and is still obviously fairly ethnocentric. not all tatoos are made for the benefit of others' admiration or contempt, but i do not think he understands that yet. i think he just needs time to realize there are other ways of seeing the world and of defining 'art'.
