    I have no problem with tattoos on other people, but I find the vast majority of them to be very unattractive. A friend of mine has a tattoo of a giant insect on her breast. There is no hiding it in a bathing suit. I have to say that I do find that one to be disturbing. Tattoos just aren’t my thing.

    I do not have tattoos, I don’t hate or love them. I just don’t care.

    I have 8. I rock them proudly. If you don’t like them, BYE! This is true for my wedding. If you are THAT superficial, don’t want ya there anyway 😀

    I love tattoos on other people as long as it is tasteful and well done (nothing too crude or something you paid just 20 bucks for). I love it when brides show their tattoos too.

    I do not personally have any tattoos only because I’ve never been able to commit enough to a design. Otherwise I’d love to have something small and personal done.

    I don’t have any, nor do I want them, but I wouldn’t say I hate them.  I honestly love them on some people!  I like meaningful tattoos…not something on a whim that people will regret.  I’m just a big fan of logical thinking :o)

    I agree with some of the PPs that I love tats on others but haven’t ever found anything I’d want to have on my body permanently.  The tattoos I’ve considered getting over the years I’m later VERY glad I did not get.  For example, I used to want barbed wire around my upper arm when I was a teen, and then I considered asian letters, and later a lower back tattoo – which shortly thereafter became labeled a “tramp stamp.”

    Ultimately, all of the things I thought were cool for a fleeting moment I now think are pretty stupid, so I’m glad that they aren’t on my body forever.  Have seen some really cool ones on other people, though.

    I don’t have any but Darling Husband has 7. I’ve just never felt really strongly about getting one myself and I think the only place I’d like one is on my ribs which would hurt like a mother. I love good work, I am just awed by the talent some tattoo artists have. That said, there are lots of truly terrible ones out there that are good for a laugh.

    I don’t have them and I don’t like them.  Like you I really don’t want to see one on a bride or bridesmaids.

    Personally, I really don’t like tattoos and I don’t have any myself. I have just never found them to be attractive on people. FH has two though, one on his right shoulder blade and one on his left arm. I don’t mind them on him because I know they mean something to him…but still not quite my cup of tea.

    I like tattoos, I’ve seen some really interesting and beautiful ones. I’ve seen ones that have held a lot of meaning for people. My boyfriend has 1. A couple of my good friends have 1 (or more). I don’t think I would ever get one. Just because I feel like I’m the type of person to change my mind. I had an idea, a drawing for one that I’ve carried around for a couple of years… but when it came down to it, I wasn’t sure I wanted it (it’s a huge back piece).

    That being said, working in the professional world, I don’t believe they should be visible.

    As fa as weddings go, one of my girls has a LOT of tattoos. Her neck/back has a rather largish tattoo. A tribute to her mother who died of breast cancer. I would never ask her to cover that up. It’s a piece of her, and I would be honored to her her (and her tattoos) stand up for me.

    I’ve seen some tattoos that I like and some that I don’t. My favorite one that I’ve seen was a Koi fish that my Uncle had the colors were beatiful and simple. When I was younger I thought about maybe getting one someday, but now that’s never going to happen. According to my allergist there is a good chance that I’m allergic to tattoo ink. Having an allergy to a permanent tattoo is just about one of the worst allergy things I can imagine.

    I don’t have any. I’ve seen some pretty cool tats on other people but I have no desire to ever get one.

    My tattoos are a big part of who I am. When I chose to get them done, I made the choice to openly express a part of me that would be permanent and part of my identity from that point on. I don’t regret it at all, and I don’t have a problem with anybody else’s tattoos, either. The way I see it, it’s their body, therefore it is up to them what modifications they may (or may not) choose to do make to it. Several of my professional connections and colleagues (I am currently studying clinical psychology in Kentucky) have tattoos, as well. They are all practicing psychologists, and not all of their tattoos are covered all of the time.

    I have 5 so I could only vote that I love them BUT I dont always love them. I see some in ridiculous areas or of things that I wonder what someone was thinking. All of mine are in areas that can be covered for work.
