Do you have a tattoo?

While a vocal DL minority hates tattoos, I like them.

Do you have any? If so, what are the stories behind them?

by Anonymousreply 4002/22/2021

Trash. Trash, trash, trash, trash, trash!

by Anonymousreply 102/15/2021

Don’t have any, and never had an interest.

by Anonymousreply 202/15/2021

They are dreadful; hate them. And the more that a person has the worse it looks. They’re like some skin disease. Hard pass. It is now nothing more than a tired cliche.

Please STFU. This thread is not for the anti-tattoo trolls

I used to have a FB with a circular tattoo on his shoulder blade. I found it so masculine and sexy

Personally I don't care much, but tells me much about the person. Just ask the jocks from the 90s with tribals and barbed wires tattoo if they still think it was a way to express themselves or just a stupid trend, a trend that stays forever.

Tattoos are neutral. They're like clothing choices; they can be beautiful, tastefully made by skilled craftspeople, and flattering to the wearer, or cheap, mass-produced and tacky.

I love a well done tat with some personal meaning. And yes, I have several and find the rampant tattoo hate the worst feature of life on the DL. I'm a huge medieval history nerd, so most of my tattoos are replicas of medieval art pieces.

DL prisspots can fuck off.

Sometimes in the heat of sex, while I’m getting fucked, a tattoo will turn me on even more.

If placed right, like a band on a bulging bicep, it’s hot

4 small tats. One on each upper thigh, one on my chest near my heart, one near my right collarbone. The one on my upper left thigh I had done to remind me of the utter folly of getting involved with hot fucks who treat you like shit.

I like guys with own or two. When it’s starts getting insane, then they’re not hot any more

by Anonymousreply 1102/15/2021

Absolutely not!

TATTOOS are for AVERAGE people who think that getting a tattoo will make them HIP, COOL or EDGEY but all it does is reinforce their AVERAGENESS.

I have a rose tattoo

R15- I have a DOROTHY and a BLANCHE tattoo.

Tattoos are trashy.

R18- That looks about as good as the LUCY statue in upstate New York.

R18 Some people can't choose a tattooist, how is that my problem?

Notta one...nope.

You’re the vocal minority, toots.

Not having a tattoo today makes you more

Nah, no interest in expressing my individuality the same way everyone else does..... besides, there's this....

No, I don't have a tattoo. I'm not a trashy barbarian.

by Anonymousreply 2502/15/2021

A tattoo might be acceptable, but it’s so rarely just the one.

by Anonymousreply 2602/15/2021

I don't think most people hate all tattoos, I know I don't, but when people are starting to run out of places to put them, it is overdone. Neck and face tats are a turnoff and trashy. I would never get one anywhere though. I don't think I have ever seen anyone I thought that a tattoo improved their appearance.

by Anonymousreply 2702/15/2021

Uhm yeaaaah no.......

I like muscle guys with a few tattoos

by Anonymousreply 2902/15/2021

I do - a small one I got on my ankle in honor of my brother. I still miss him dearly, but it was a fun, silly way to “honor” him.

by Anonymousreply 3002/15/2021

I only ever had a henna tattoo. My friend, who learned Mandarin while living in Taiwan, offered to do an approximate translation of my name in Mandarin characters. It ran the length of my arm, and looked great. I had it for a month before it faded. When it did fade, he told me that it read ”Big Fat Homosexual” in Mandarin. I worked in Chinatown in London at the time. It was summer, and I regularly wore T-shirts. No wonder I got some funny looks.

I think we should do tattoos based on the titles of DL threads.

by Anonymousreply 3202/15/2021

There’s not a tattooed person on this planet who doesn’t regret it.


Yet once the ink is in their blood, they cannot stop.

by Anonymousreply 3302/15/2021

One or two small tattoos is ok...not when most of the body is covered. Then the ones who tattoo the neck and face, really bizarre. There's something wrong there.

R33 = a drunk

I don’t have one, but always considered getting a scannable one. I like the fish skeleton on the back of a calf.

I lost both my husbands to premature natural death, one after 13 years together and the other after 16 years together. My sister is a tattoo artist and did a memorial piece to both of them on my right upper arm treating them symbolically. It's my one and only.

by Anonymousreply 3702/15/2021

I don’t have one, and never wanted one.

I am so tired of seeing them everywhere. The hottest guys in porn (to me) are the ones who have pure, unadorned skin. I’m old-fashioned that way.

But if you like them, enjoy. I don’t judge. (Except in my mind.)

by Anonymousreply 3802/22/2021

I don't have any and I don't plan on getting any. It's not my thing, but I've seen some beautiful work on other guys.

R5 hmm maybe you're thinking of me. Total bottom and Irish?
