No tattoo other than an inadvertent one.

Worked on my car when in my early 20s, and cut my thumb on a sharp edge. A bit of dirty oil got deep into the skin, and caused the scar to be stained up to this day.

No tattoo. At age 59, I am saving my money for my (eventual) dental implants, (eventual) orthopedic shoes, and (eventual) hearing aids. Also have a fear of unnecessary pain and possible infection.

No no no.....and no piercings either. I have enough holes in my body. At least the scars I have on my body were inadvertent......well.....but for too many operations on knees and things.

No tattoos or piercings. I don't even have my ears pierced. Body modifications gross me out and I wouldn't ever elect to have something like that done to me. But then, if you want one, it's your body so go right ahead.

Tattoos are fine, just can't think of anything I feel that strongly about.

No, but peaked my curiosity so off to Google images for "funniest tatoos".

After going through the first 300 (three pages) my vote goes to the lady in the green shorts and the two dogs.

I don't have one and used to be very anti-tattoo. But, I've seen some nice ones lately. I guess the main things I would probably want would be to have one that could be covered up. I know some women who have one on the back of the shoulder for example.
