    Most of my coworkers and people around my age are covered in tattoos.

    They often ask me how come I don't have any myself. If I'm scared or something. I just simply shrug it off because tattoos just don't elicit an emotional response in me.

    Also I know for a fact that whatever tatoo I get I would get bored of in less than a year.

    Lately I've been thinking about having a tattoo removal business. People get bored with their tattoos or need to get them remove for a job. It turns out that getting a tattoo removed is more expensive than getting it on.

    So do you have any tattoos?

    I have 4. all but one most people would never see and the fourth is meant to be kind of a warning.

    When I was spending months at a time in Hawaii, I was pretty sure I wanted a tattoo of the hawaiian islands on a forearm, and of a sea turtle maybe nearby. I had one henna'ed just to try it out and loved it. I could never time it so that I could be out of the sun and water long enough after getting it done.

    Thank goodness.

    Now, after moving to Florida, we spend exactly zero time in Hawaii. Pretty glad I don't have their state map on my forearm.

    I always chuckled building AdWords campaigns for “tattoo artist <location>” and then “tattoo removal <location>”.

    I don’t have any tattoos. I may do one day. They would have to mean something. Maybe Chinese writing as I’m half-Chinese. Maybe the names of my sons and maybe something for family members who’ve passed away.

    My mum does excellent Chinese calligraphy by all accounts, and it’s always a real hit when she writes people’s names in England. Even today I was thinking she could do Chinese writing and translations for people who might want a tattoo, or to have a lucky saying in their house.

    Do you trust your artist so much that you don't check is he's spelling it correctly?

    If you don't mind asking what kind of warning? For yourself or for the people that manage to see it?

    This is how I imagine how most people end up getting tattoos. Either they are so happy or so sad in that one moment in time that they want to remember it so much that they end up getting it inked on their body. Only to have more extremely happy and sad moments later on in life making the tattoo obsolete.

    I'm on the aspergers spectrum. I have a tattoo of a puzzle piece on my forearm. Makes it much easier to explain my idiosyncrasies

    I have 1 tattoo currently I got while in the Marine Corps. Surprised I didn’t leave with more... at the time, the tattoo policy was very damaging to careers, so I made sure to get mine in an inconspicuous location.

    It’s on my upper bicep and you cannot see it while I’m clothed.

    I plan on getting several other tattoos, currently have a large rib piece I’ve been planning for ages.

    Personally, I love artwork. But for me, i keep them concealed because I still have a very professional day job.

    I got two tats, one on each upper arm like 15 years ago without thinking it through. I totally regret it, but at least I can hide them. My brother got pretty intense tats on both of his forearms and ten years ago it caused him professional problems, but these days it doesnt seem like a big issue anymore.

    I'm actually going to get my whole body tattooed except for my face. Tattoos are beautiful, don't judge.

    Not a one. Worked in a nursing home as a receptionist when I was a teenager and saw what happened to tattooed skin when it got older. Scary!

    Clean canvas here. Not going to get artwork that looks like it was washed in bleach after a few decades.

    No tattoos. I love artwork and tattoo art looks cool, but personally, I just feel they look ugly on the human body (no offence).

    It's like a beautiful piece of statue (think Michelangelo's David), and you scribble some stuff on it using dark green marker pen. Spoils the natural beauty.

    Maybe OP can consider targeting women: Tattooed women outnumber men in a new poll

    The poll was in 2012, it's 2018 now, the gap should be even wider. I see on IG, every girl has at least one tattoo somewhere on the body I swear!

    There's many ways of self expression, tattoos ain't the way to go.
    What if you're old, and the skin starts to sag and wrinkle, and you've more age spots? That whole tattoo area is gonna look like one scary convoluted mess (especially for women).

    Also, I wonder if laser can remove large patches of tattoos (e.g: full back or whole arm sleeve) cleanly or is it limited to those tiny tattoos.

    I'm strongly anti-tattoo, maybe I should start a movement like those pro-LGBT / Vegan events and fastlane it lol.....
