Tattoos on women


I guess I was born a few years too early.

I hate tattoos on women. (Well I hate tattoos in general, but don't mind them as much on men.)

When I see women in their 20's and earlier with tattoos, I instantly think "skank" or "ex-skank" or "wanna-be-skank". I can't help it. It was how I was raised.

When I was in high school, if one of my girlfriends would have mentioned getting a tattoo, I would have been totally grossed out. I think we all would have. Only the girls who stood just outside the school property and smoked cigarettes would have been the ones who would have even THOUGHT about having a tattoo.

Tattoos in 1989 were something only white-trash women got... you know the type, the haggard, skanky looking "old" women with rotten teeth, dyed red hair, skin as leathery from sun damage as their black leather pants, and hot pink lipstick smeared over their lips-- which had a cigarette dangling out of their mouth. Maybe they were wearing a Rolling Stones T-shirt that was cut-off to show their skanky belly button.

I wasn't a bow-head, but we were ladies.

So now I have little 14 year old students who want tattoos, I just cringe when they say they want to scar themselves that way. "How nasty", is all I can think.

So here is a poll. Answer the first part, then the second part.... so I can see what age-group of people are voting.

I think it's an "age thing".

I don't know what year tattoos became "cool" but it was definitely after I came of age.

One thing I know for sure is this, girls who are thinking about getting tattoos better be concerned about people in my age category who may want to hire them. I wouldn't hire someone if I could see their tattoo.
