Tat Tat Tatted Up!!

I got into this little discussion with my co-worker a while back and it dawned on me again early yesterday. Me being that I have like 3 tattoos going on 4, I kind of get looked down upon by older people, but honestly, I don't care. My first tattoo holds a lot of controversy though.

So we was talking about tattoos on your lower back. At this point, he didn't know I had one on my lower back so basically, he said if you have one there, you have a tramp stamp, so youre a tramp. CLEARLY, I disagreed fully. I'm not a tramp, far from it, and I got the tattoo as "fashion" and it had nothing to do with anything sexual. Plus, it's not like it has no meaning. I straight up told him that and he tried to change his opinion talking about... "well, not all girls with them are tramps". I was like, whatever! And walked away.

I don't understand why people think that. I know plenty of people that have lower back tattoos and aren't tramps... well that I know of lol. It annoys the heck outta me, but I guess all are entitled to their own opinion... UgH.

How do you guys feels about tattoos??

@one soulful negro- that's what I'm talking about!! I love tattoos!
I have one on my lower back thats a tribal sun, explaining what it means would take days lol. I have one on the back of my shoulder that is kanji for strength and another kanji symbol on my wrist that says courage

I used to want a tattoo, actually a couple, but no longer do. Everyone seems to have them and I don't enjoy being like everyone else. I got a nose ring, and then I realized how many people had them, and took it out. Tattoos are okay for those who have them/really want them, but some people's tattoos look really dumb sometimes lol.

I got to say that girls with tats used to be hot, but there so common place now that in order for you to stand out you have to cover up in them.

As for the lower back one i must admit there is a stereotype of women with that which is trampy. Of course it's not true but it's out there none the less.

Well the lower back tattoos do turn me on... I think it's the sexiest! Makes me... well, kinda HORNY!...lol

@philosopher- yea, it seems like EVERYONE has a tat, but it's gotta be different in order to make it your own. I didn't know u had a nose ring!!

@clnmike- I really hate the stereotype, but I feel like there's no way around it :(

@tony oh- lol that's what a lot of men say!

i dont have any tatts because i cant think of anything i want on me for the rest of my life.

but to each their own. i just hate seeing people that have tatts that dont have any meaning at all.

but in the business world perception is everything so i think people should be very careful about where they put the tatts... whether you care about others opinions or not it could possibly affect you in the long run. im still pissed i took out my earings for work but it didnt fit into my corporate culture. and while i look fly with my cubics... me getting this promotion next year is more important.
