I can understand why certain men get tattoos ... historical significance, cultural norm, bravado etc ... though I would never have one myself.

But why do women get tattooed?

I think, without exception, they look horrible on a woman (tattoos not men !!! B) ).

Any thoughts?

I think that's why women maybe get tattoos.

That and and maybe they want to.

From Harry Enfield's Television Show:
Interviewer: So what does that tattoo on your neck say?
Kid: Individual
Interviewer: And why have you got that?
Kid: All me mates got one innit.

Personally I can't abide them. I just don't get it.

I have never seen a tattoo on a woman and thought it looked nice. I think they look horrible on women.

It's just fashion, which will turn in time, if it hasn't already. Leaving a lot of people heading to the tatto removalist.

My son has tattoos. I don't think that my daughter has ... though she is going out with the singer in a punk band, and he has.

My mate travelled up to Edinburgh for one.

Seemed a bit extreme to me.

I'm with most of you lot, would never get one myself and don't find them particularly attractive on girls either.

That said some of the really old style maori ones are really impressive on the right person (ie, not me!).

Never been interested in tattoos nor our Stu. Some people are covered in them from head to toe. One lad that I used to work with spent £1,000 on a tattoo yet still complained of being skint all the time!

the tatto removalist.


That is going to be one huge boom industry in the not too distant future.

Each to his own. I don't like 'em at all.

You wouldn't decorate your house for it to last a lifetime so why would you do so to your skin. Very odd.

Those sleeve tattoos strike me as a really bad idea. They look horrendous now but at least they are of the time. When they go out of fashion and people start to regret them more and more they'll become as laughable as the tattoo on the base of a girls back

For some unknown reason I absolutely love those tiny nose studs on a good looking woman, but tattoos just seem a bit too chavvy somehow.
