I have often toyed with the idea of a few stars somewhere non-visible but have always come down on the side of common sense

I pierced my nose for all of three days to piss my mother off before a family party
It worked very well grin
But it healed nicely afterwards so was in essence reversible

It brings out hideous bits of flesh, never mind just tatoos, i saw some horrenous arms and legs in Morries at lunch time

I bet some people would have that done to their babies if they could.

I can't get over the very obvious badly "self-done" or "done by a mate" tattoos that you see on view.

I recently stood in a queue next to a woman who had the names of about 8 children/grandchildren (?) down her arm. They were very badly done, as if written by different people, no particular type-face etc.

If you are going to have a permanent tattoo at least make it a good quality one FFS.

I dont mind tats, i prefer to see them on show that some mans skinny white legs in shorts, with hairy fat belly bulging out of a t-shirt

I agree VT. I also like tattoos on people's lower backs which you see poking out at the same time as their thong and half their a*se. That's class, right there.

VinegarTits Wed 01-Jul-09 13:23:42

i think they are called 'tramp stamps'

I have my husbands name across my chest surrounded by haerst and stars. It s quite big but I think its pretty.

It is nasty. I was at a ball last weekend and there was a lady in a backless evening gown. Looked lovely from the front but when she turned round she had a HUGE tattoo of a lady giving a devil a blow job shock. Truely vile.

My mother wants my dd's birth date tattooed on her back inside a sun. Lord above knows why. Actually nothing against tattoos and would quite like one on my foot but I think my mother's having some kind of crisis. She has never liked them at all. Dad thinks they need to up her HRT before she starts on the piercings.

My DH says its even worse in the US. He has worked a lot with the US military and used to go to hot/sandy places, go to the shared swimming pool and see these attractive fit young women from in their bikinis completely covered in tatts. Put him right off his perving grin

Mmm Wilbur which common was this gorgeous betatted man on? [gets stalky hat on - not deerstalky hat mind, much too hot in this weather]

VinegarTits Wed 01-Jul-09 13:41:05

Sorry Reality, didnt mean to offend you, i had never heard them called that until that vile hairy boke off Big Brother said it in a conversation with Noirin the other night (i hate him, i hope he falls into a lawn mower and gets that vile pony tail chopped off) i would never say it myself

giantkatestacks Wed 01-Jul-09 13:42:59

VT lol at vile hairy boke maybe it should have been vile hairy boak though grin

As someone who loves (and has) good quality tattoos, I agree that the sunshine does seem to bring the worst, most badly-executed and ill-judged ink to the surface. It just proves how many shit tattooists there are out there, and how many idiots people are willing to pay them

LaurieFairyCake tiny tattoos don't show the detail especially well and since ink spreads over time any detail in a really small tattoo tends to get lost. Anil Gupta is someone who specialises in detailed miniatures but I've never really seen the point myself.

VinegarTits Wed 01-Jul-09 13:47:44

Iklboo Wed 01-Jul-09 13:47:49
