    Better to say "Excuse me, Sir, may I ask you about that tattoo?" and keep it professional. People just don't think any more.
    I'm "sleeved" and you are 100% right. Frankly it gets OLD really fast. I have literally been using a urinal and had a guy attempt to strike up a conversation about them,... I've had people try physically rub my arms or grab my arms to look without even asking permission first. I've had to tell people "I'M IN A HURRY" just to get a "well I just wanted to know,..." back. Come on! I've had people ask me while I worked in the automotive industry when there was a line of customers behind them waiting to be served.I've had people try to whisper questions while in college lectures! Get some manners! I didn't get them for YOU, also the joke "why don't you get a tattoo heh heh" or "why don't you get more tattoos har har" is old, I've heard it a million times and it wasn't funny the first time, and no just because I have ink doesn't mean I want to see what your crappy tattoo that your sisters ex boyfriends cousin did in his basement that time y'all were drinking a little too much.....


    /soapbox.


    OP:Glad you didn't get made after all!

    You didn't get them for me? Then why aren't they on your keester? Admit it: if you didn't want all the attention, you wouldn't have your arms all tatted up, or if you did, you wouldn't expose them. You absolutely love the attention, but also love ranting about it.

    "Showing off is a symptom of inferiority, low self-esteem, and maybe lack of love (humility could be another way to show off, where the things get more complicated). All of us need to be aware of ourselves, because most of the time, we condemn in others what we hate in ourselves. It lies in the nature of a neurotic to wish to diminish the feeling of inferiority by constant proofs of his superiority."

    Good thing you didn't jump the "gun" and told him that it was your gun. That convo would have been a little bit more awkward

    Hmmm visible arm tatoos may help draw attention from that GLOCK in various stages of concealment hiding under my shirt.

    I was CC yesterday with a loose shirt pulled over my G19 in a Galco Paddle Holster. I must have been made because a Target Security Guard followed me pretty much all over the store. No worries, I did my shopping and left.

    It's easier for me to throw on the paddle holster for short trips to the store compromising concealment; I think since KY allows OC I get comfortable with it. When I'm gone for longer periods I go deep concealment.

    This paranoia over "being made" is getting silly. You are concealed and it is not some obvious "concealed but not really", who the heck cares. Someone has a problem with it, so what. You are legal, you are permitted, you are allowed in the store or on the site--again--who cares. None of their damn business.

    Target and Shopko are on top of their game with the cameras. My buddy works at Shopko, he said during orientation the cameras zoomed in and saw the time on a customers wrist-watch. Target is pretty much the same.

    That won't ever happen to me. I don't ever go inside a Target store. They don't support Vets, and I don't support them. Of course that's my personal choice.

    Sounds like you got made by a Mall Ninja.

    Since NM is open carry state I really don't worry about it much however I have noticed people that seem to look a little curious sometimes when I am CC usually when I am just headed put for a quick trip to the store and have my Galco OWB holster and a loose shirt over it. I have a game that my wife and I started, she asks me did you wear you gun to "fill in the blank", and of course I did but she couldn't tell. So I make a note of what I was wearing and adjust if for some reason she can tell. My Crossbreed IWB is my favorite and so far no one has ever been able to tell I was concealed with it.

    Yeah but he only followed me, never approached.
