Please nobody take offense to this, but if I was single, I don't think I could bring myself to date a woman with a tattoo. Her body, her choice, but it's my hang up.

I also couldn't date a woman that sits a glass on the table, when a coaster is in plane sight. I got lots of hang ups.

Same here; they just hold no attraction for me whatsoever. I can see a woman that I think is attractive, but if she has a tattoo, it just takes away from that attraction for me.

Normally I might agree, but I knew a girl back in my single days (30-something years ago) that had a small butterfly tattoo on her shoulder. I didn't find that unattractive.

I can't get behind all the piercings though... unless its a really hot chick... then I could probably look past it.


Seen that a few times and I still think it's horrid.

Still single right??


All day, every day. Like BigFoot, I have lots of hang ups. Possibly a curse, but most likely a blessing. Guy just a little older than me just paid his last check towards alimony last fall. 50k calf check, 40k went to the ex. All told she soaked him for 250k. She is a looker. Would have been financially prudent in his case to have a few hang ups. Lots of farm guys around here have gotten hooked up simply because they don't want to be alone - not a good reason to potentially risk your investment. And slowly those relationships are unraveling and things get messy.

A good woman can't be replaced , with or without a tattoo. Now dont get me wrong there is a fine line between beauty and trashy.

Funny (at least to me) anecdote about tattoos.
In the 60s aboard ship a friend of mine was a barber and had tattoos on his arms, several were naked women. He was planning on getting out of the Navy and wanted to barber for a living. At that time to get a civilian barbers license you could only have tattoos that were covered and you couldn;t have a naked woman tattoo at all. He went through the surgical removal and bleaching process to get rid of them, very painful. He got out of the Navy and a month later rejoined and shipped him back to the same ship.
He didn;t see much humor in it but I thought it was hilarious.

Like Bigfoot I find tatoos very repulsive . i can't really explain why . I just never understood why someone would want to do it.
I have no problem with not setting your glass on a coaster.

I bet that butterfly now looks like a saggy vulture

Probably so, but in my memories it still looks the same.

One of my daughters was a jailer for a while. She's seen tons of hidden tats on strip searches....I think i'm the only parent with 4 kids that are tat free. Jailer daughter would have been my only guess to end up with a tat, but since she worked where she did and saw what she did, she'll remain tat free by her own accord. Said age is not kind to tats, neither is added weight. Not to mention that you wont find a single criminal without a painted body...

One of our vets is the last person you would expect to have a tattoo (very religious, devoted family man) but has a "wedding band" tattooed on his ring ringer in lieu of his ring. I certainly understand why he doesn't wear his actual ring (I don't on the ranch) and find his tat endearing.
