Corrina....love ya darlin... You are my friend...I just don't agree that a CHILD should have a tattoo...

And here is the thing....to me those that "express" are the ones that are covered in tats and don't give a hoot what people think of them...but here is the thing your tattoos are not visible right? Then what/who are you expressing too? Did the decision to have them in areas that are easy to cover get made because you knew in the back of your mind you would need to cover them because society is so judgmental? Image is very important...trust me I have to make those decisions on hirees everyday!

I feel sorry for those who aren't secure enough to express themselves! Live life to the fullest! I'm not saying you need a full "sleeve", but why not experience life? Hell, you may like it!

Some of the posters are against tattoos completely, but alot of them are against the idea of a 15 year old getting one. I have three myself, and the first one I got done at 18 has already been covered up with another. It really won't hurt anybody for him to wait a few more years and think long and hard about it.

I was 27 when i got my first! I thought long and hard, but wound up with the 2 that I wanted when I was 18... Maybe I am one of the lucky ones that REALLY knew what I wanted. My son on the other hand is a different story (I don't agree with a specific one that he got)! But it is his body and his life! As long as he is happy, I am too!

Aren't tats getting a little played out? Kindof like lambo doors on a civic or purple neon under a clapped out Caprice? If every muffintop in Walmart is sporting one, how "special" is it?
In the 80's we spiked our hair and dyed it funky colors. We said we were expressing our individuality. After a while, we realized we were "different, just like all our friends" but our "uniqueness" was insignificant. That is called growing up. So we cut our hair, washed the dye out and went on to express ourselves in productive ways. The difference is, the tat is permanent.
As a naval Officer, I make decisions about young people's careers every day. Am I going to send someone who looks like a comic strip to brief an Admiral or VIP? Hell no. Funny thing about life, you often never know the opportunities you miss. A teen today is likely to enter a workforce with as much as 20% unemployment. Premature tatoos, like all bad decisions, increase your chances of being in that 20%

This is what pisses me off about the world! (Nothing Personal)

I would send the person who know what the hell they are talking about in to brief the Admiral or VIP. I dont give a damn what a person looks like so long as they get the job done and do it well! I see no problem with having upper management with full "body suits" as long as they know what they are doing! Ink has nothing to do with knowledge. As far as missing out on opportunities... You may never know the great Officers you could have had (but don't) because you judged them. Just my thoughts and again, nothing personal

Considering some form of tattooing has been around for thousands of years, no they are not getting played out. And I'll have to agree with CallMeQuig. When you're choosing someone to give a brief on important issues, choose the guy that's most knowledgable about the situation, not the guy/girl that would look good on tv.

No offense taken, Quig. Dissent makes for good discussion.

The flaw that I see in your reasoning is something that I see as one of the great lies we have pitched to our youth: the lie of specialness. Many young people think they are special or unique in a way that is important to the world. To your girlfriend, yes. To your mother, absolutely. But to the rest of the world, you are only as special as your ability to perform a function. In the military we call it "get the mision done", but every other business has the same idea with different words.

There is rarely only one "special" person to get the job done. So the "best person for the job" arguement falls flat. As an Officer lets say I have at my disposal 7 sailors who are all subject matter experts and excellent briefers. Why would I select the guy who has the potential to give a negative first impression? I won't. I owe it to the team to make the best decision for the team.

Our young people are woefully ill-prepared for the America we are handing them. A young person today really needs to understand restraint, savings, and dicipline. Unfortunately, my generation was taught excess, selfishness, and consumption, so we are not in a very good position to teach them.

Very funny thread.

I hope no one ever finds out about the smiley face I had put on my arm at 18.
I mean, How in the hell would I ever explain that.

If you feel you need something to remember a loved one by try this. Think about for a couple years before you take any action( I promise you will not forget them in this couple years). If the feeling is still there, take action.

It will be better planned and you will feel more confident in your decision. All the other opinions don't really matter. It's not there loved one, not there body, and not there tattoo.

If you are 15, chances are you will make far worse mistakes in life before you grow up than getting a tattoo. CHANCES.


As for tattoo's on women, I love em. Man do I love em!!
