I have one tattoo on my chest, it's not outrageous and it's easily concealable, unless I get a job where I have to get my kit off regularly. Edit: In response to your last post Munji, there are more reasons to getting a tattoo than just self-decoration or lifestyle choice. For instance my tattoo was of something I loved and I wanted to have that love immortalized. I think the desire to have something that means a lot to you is a far deeper reason for getting a tattoo. Sometimes it's not about advantages and disadvantages either, sometimes it's just about doing what feels right to you regardless of how other people think or react. You also said that people who find a tattoo attractive are not going to be the kinds of people who will improve your life. I strongly disagree, I've known people why have found my tattoo attractive and who have helped me in many many ways. They have tattoos as well, and don't do anything that wouldn't expect a non-inked person to do. Forgive me, but I sort of get the feeling that you're stereotyping people with tattoos as being non desirable people or even delinquent. The truth is, a tattoo doesn't change you as a person and it's not a symbol of delinquency. Also, as I side note, I recently had a job interview at a music store and showed them my tattoo of a bass clef. They reacted with smiles and complements, I got the job but had to turn it down in the end, though I think the tattoo even helped.
