Why do people decide to tattoo on their body & what impression do people have tatto give you? Pls share.......
people who have tattoo are normal people ....unless you tokkin about long those whole body kind tats scary~~~
but nowadays tattoos got 3D patterns quite nice
i dont hab tattoo but i like temporary ones (like henna art or those stick and peel ones) coz i am fickle minded....:P
To be frank, 1st 1 i did was to "hao lian" but gradually I like the idea of being inked... dont know why also... Currently, got 2... Planning for another 2 or 3 more and that is it...
But the only area i will do is my back...
My impression of others, i think it depends how many tattoos you have too. Normally you see ppl with one tiny winy tattoo n they keep like showing it, means all this ppl just wanna hao lian only, we call them fashionista?
Not sure bout others?

i see temp staff in my office my sister's age having small tattoos on their back, shin, etc.......so in future if my child wants to do it, if it's nothing illegal nor ill intentions, object also no use. might as well survey around see how others' impression of ppl with tattoo are.
I knew this guy from reservist camp... whole body/arms/legs tattooed... he owns a tattoo shop... sometimes bumped into him outside... will say hi... then my colleagues will ask how come I got such friend... haha... I think the stigma is there
My personal take:
Some tattoos r nice... like those arty ones...
Those not nice one... like those chinese words... your ex bf/gf's names... buddha...tiger... dragon... phoenix... barbed wire on a flabby bicep.... :P
my dear husband is fully covered
except for his back (which he is saving for the right "ink")
he has our son's name on his neck, which is the most meaningful one by far, and before we got married, we got a ring tattoo with our initials on each of our ring fingers.
i am tattoed myself. my back, my wrists, and so on...
personally, i find tattoos sexy (the tasteful ones at least!) and i get inked for the love of the art, means to etch a permanent memory. my tattoos all have meanings and memories. same like dear husband. when you look at our bodies, you see our memories.
but but but...the -ve stigma and stereotype, linking tattoos with delinquents, gangsterism, hooligans, blah blah blah will no doubt never be erased.
well...its something we both have gottenused to. the stares, the whispers...well, we have learnt not to let it get to us!
and should Dray one day wanna get tattooed, we wont have any objections, as long as he is off age. we'll be sure to give him the right info, education, etc to guide him to not making a hasty and uneducated decision.

i did my first one cause of the memories. then got addicted to the pain from the needle. so add on my 2nd, 3rd, 4th and on. but all on places that can be covered up. thighs and ankles, back, and behind ears. all has their own meaning to me. something i wanna remember for life.
tattoo is a kind of art. and cause its permenant. the best is really think properly and put something you know you wont regret.
i hate it when i see those xiao meimei or xiao didi put tattoo just to show off. in future regret still gotta waste money laser...
my didi not of legal age yet. but i stil brought him to do his first tattoo after hearing why he wants that particular design. the only areas i allow him to do for now is his back cause he's still schooling. my mama has tattoos all over her body as well. no big deal ..
but still. like what yummymummy says . the -tve impression people will have. but you cant possibly please everyone . just do what you feel is right, what you like.
