Would you ever get a tattoo?

Topic #207:

Would you ever get a tattoo? If you had one, what made you decide to get your first? If you don’t have one, why or why not would you ever consider getting one?

According to one survey, 36% of American’s aged 18-29 have tattoos, the highest number in history.


I don’t have a tattoo because I never really saw the need to get one. Its kind of a permanent thing to do to your body, and knowing just how fickle I am about things? It just doesn’t seem really ideal for me to get one when I know years later I will regret it and would want it removed. There is also the very unappealing aspect of what happens to your skin if you get fat, lose weight, or get old and then what will happen to that tattoo in return.

Though… my favorite kind of tattoo are ones on the backs of other people. ;X
