    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    See, in the Good Olde Days of yore, a tattoo was rebellious, a special thing, a mark of individuality.

    Now, go to a waterpark. You'll see that they are chiefly the sign of trailer trash. The really beautiful people, the upper classes, remain unmarked (celebrities most notably excepted). The smart and the rich skate away from such hoo-hah. Hey, your body, do what you want. But in the years to come, the "uninked" will be highly valued in society as being the rare minority who didn't follow the herd.

    Good thing most job interviews don't happen at a waterpark I don't disagree with your trailer trash statement, but (some) body art has absolutely become more sophisticated and accepted. I designed my tattoo myself and spent over a year drawing and re-drawing it before I made the decision to make it permanent. It's on my ribcage and if I really wanted, I could go the rest of my life without even giving society the opportunity to judge me on it. And I'd like to think that, as a tattooed CPA, I'm as valued in society as the untattooed criminal defense lawyer

    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    The responses to this thread have really disappointed me. I expected a lot more from the people here on DC.

    Calling people with tattoos roadkill, trailer trash, convicts, etc is NO different than judging somebody based on the color of their skin. Nice to see where some of you stand.

    got 2 tattoo's about to get number 3 none of them can be seen unless I goto a water park all unique and very personal (mom dad's death, kids and wife name ETC...)
    I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
    And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
    As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
    God Bless

    I do agree... Nothing that can't be hidden by a long sleeve shirt and pants.

    I think you're projecting a bit. In the future I don't think society will care much who's inked and who isn't.

    I know a few things about tattoos..

    1) Of all of the people I highly respect and love in my life, about 50% have tattoos.

    2) Of all the complete morons and abusers and idiots I have known in my life, about 50% of them have tattoos.

    3) I have seen some beautiful tattoos that the word, "tattoo" just doesn't seem adequate to describe. They are works of art that should be admired no less than anything in any museum. When I see those kinds of tattoos my impression for the canvas (i.e. the individual) automatically goes up. That person cared enough about their body to spare no expense and get something unique, well-thought-out and that is artful, instead of just some butterfly out of a portfolio book on a weekend bet.

    All that being said, I do not have any tattoos. I am not against it and may end up with a tattoo one day but I will not settle for anything less than the work of art that means something very important to me. And people can think whatever they want of me. The people who will matter will know better and the people who I need to impress won't be able to see it.

    You could not be more wrong on the bolded part. Not even close to the same thing. A tatoo is a personal decision that an individual has made, ostensibly to make a statement to the outside world. A choice and a statement. Color of your skin is something you can't change and have no control over... unles you're Michael Jackson.

    You may be disappointed that people view tatoos the way that they do, but making them out to be racist is not correct.

    I have nothing personally agaisnt tatoos. My wife has her family name in Japanese on her back (she is 1/2 Japanese) since she still chooses to identify with her family even though she changed her name. I can support that type of tatoo that has personal meaning and not judge people for them.

    Where I judge people is when they choose outlandish, obsene, pointless or foolish tatoos prominently displayed on their body. These people are making a public statement about something, or at least demostating their lack of judgement or foresight. I do not judge their character or worth, but just as hairstyle, clothing and demeanor play into my assessment of individuals I interact with, I evaluate location and content of tatoos when I evaluate an individual. I think we all do weather you want to admit it or not.

    The real question becomes what do you do with the information. How you use it might say more about you than the tatoo does about the person with ink in their skin.
