Tattoos hurt and they're permanent, and these are two very good reasons that I don't have any - but that's not to say that I don't appreciate them! I totally respect the fact that they often represent an idea, a person, a memory, a place, a special date, or are just an artistic design a person has a connection with or loves.
The fact still remains that I am a huge wimp when it comes to pain and needles -- I can't even deal with one shot of Novocaine -- so I'm sure I would go absolutely ballistic if I got a tattoo. I'll stick to showing off my individuality in other ways.
What about you - are you into tattoos? Do you have any? Are you attracted to people who have tattoos, or are they a huge turn off for you? Does it depend on what or where the tattoo is? Have you ever dated anyone with a memorable tattoo? I want to hear it all.
