    Yuk, Yuk, Yuk

    The recent hot weather has brought out bare shoulders and arms, bare midriffs, bare legs and, yuk, yuk, yuk, tattoos, chav stamps and inkings or call them what you will. Current large scale works make a sailors tattoos pale into insignificance.

    Why someone completely defiles what nature has given them is completely beyond me. Pink hair, long finger nails, pierced ears or whatever current passing fashion dictates will eventually "grow out" but not "permanent" tattoos. Unless of course one is very rich and can afford expensive, potentially dangerous and painfull laser removal.

    Just imagine what that "beautiful" elegant swan will look like in 40 years time or what the new man thinks of a previous mans name permanently etched on her body.

    You sound a bundle of fun John.

    Is this another of your threads whereby you make a statement and then make no further comment.

    Each to their own I say.

        Body modifications(voluntarily) have been part of human culture since the beginning.

        get with times.

        Tattoo fixers worth a look if you think the only corrective option is laser for the mistakes.

        I suspect you would not be impressed with some of the more extreme body modified people.

            What ever they have done to their bodies is their problem. It takes all sorts as they say.

              Thanks for starting a thread John.

              However is it not rather sexist?? I could be wrong but does David Beckham not sport the odd tattoo and does SamCam ??

              As TD says, body art has been fashionable for centuries.

              Not for me but each to their own.

                Morning Annie.

                We now see it every day both male and females some have both arm'sand legs tattooed not many I would call tasteful.
                We have a couple of blokes who have them on there face and neck, strangely enough they have not worked for years.

                As one Comedian said about Cheryl Cole when she hits 65 that tattoo will look like a bat stuck to her ass?...Taffy

                Not into pain hence no ear piercing's or tattoo's

                  I used to be really anti tattoo, but these days I think it depends on the person. LOVE and HATE across the knuckles, or "cut here" across the throat, or indeed anything else of a threatening or obscene nature, I hate. The current male fashion for the Maori type of design I actually find quite attractive on some men. Yes, I must be sexist, I hate tattoos on women. Judith

                      You can't get into massage parlours in Japan if you have a tattoo. That was the defining moment that it was not for me. At least that's how it was in the 70's. Things may have changed but I doubt it.

                          Many books have glitzy inviting covers but when you get down to reading them, they contain no substance whatsoever.

                          The older I get, the more I realise you shouldn't judge people by how they look.

                            It is well to remember when you are judging others, they are judging you, with the same godlike and superior impartiality.

                              I agree that you can't/shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but first impressions do count with most of us.

                              If the Maitre' D on your next cruise had tats up the side of his neck and face, would you be impressed? I know I wouldn't.

                              As many of you know I have just returned from a Med cruise and one of the Deck waiters was a young white American whose uniform was shirt and shorts. He wore a flesh coloured stocking on one leg and we both assumed he was an amputee.

                              He was serving us on one of the last days of cruise when an American passenger three tables away 'discreetly' yelled, "Hey buddy, watcha' done to ya' leg"?

                              He reached down rolled his stocking down to reveal a perfectly normal limb with a massive tattoo on his shin.

                              Company policy, I'm not allowed to display tattoos.

                              I agree with their policy...........Wilba
