    Yea, I have a Tat on my arm. Been there over 50 years. And being a old man of the world, I don't care what people think or say about it. I'm just easy going old man.

    Body art is nothing I choose for myself. Discreet tattoos with personal meaning I can at least understand, but being born in the middle of the last century there's virtually no baby boomer I know who's really glad they got that tattoo in their youth.

    The aerospace/defense industry - my biz - remains pretty conservative. If you want full sleeve or neck ink, be prepared to wear long sleeves and turtlenecks at work (a little challenging in AZ) or accept a pretty flat career trajectory. That's not a judgement - that's just an observation of real life. Likewise for visible piercings beyond a couple in the ears. Gaged earlobes? You'll probably have company in the factory, but not in the engineering or business sides of the company.

    Although I've seen some remarkably good ink, the biggest problem I see is the irreversibility of the action. Our bodies mostly all distort with age, most of us like a candle in front of a heat lamp. What looks great at 20 or 30 will be mushy and illegible at best when most hit 60 or beyond, and I think that foresight is not widely appreciated by young folks.

    I've never had a shirt that I liked so much, or that so completely represented my inner essence, that I wanted to wear it every day for the rest of my life.

    To each their own.

    I only like tattoos if they are classy and refined

    Never once have I thought, what a beautiful woman, a tattoo would make her even more attractive, Nope.
    I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.

    And a .45 just bounces off my noggin. I've got the dents to prove it. OD* ran out of ammo and gave up.
    I thought 9mm was superior to the .45. And the 1911 is too big for my hands.

    As long as anything obscene is covered where children can't see, it's their issue.

    I don't have any tats, neither did my father. My grandfather had his initials tattooed on his inside forearm. I asked him once why he had it and he said that if he was ever found dead in the middle of nowhere, his remains could be identified. Made sense for some one born in 1895 in sparsely populated cow country. My oldest son has a large tat on his chest. It looks good now because the "canvas" is young and vibrant. My youngest son says that he will get a large tat once he graduates from college. I hope that he doesn't. I feel so much different from that of 40 years ago. I don't think that the tats that I may have gotten then would reflect my current thinking now.
