What do you think about them? I think the recent trend for men to cover most of their arms/legs with them (including Beckham) look awful. Women are getting as bad I notice. I remember in my youth I had a stick-on tattoo of a small rose bud on my upper arm which I thought looked rather cute and at least I could peel it off. Maybe I'm getting old and crochety - hope not.

Loathe them.

Me too, loathe, that is, but my girlfriend loves them, has two and wants more.

She hid them from her father for years, but they sneaked out one day and somehow he decided that it was all my fault. Most unjust.

I can appreciate the big artistic ones but the current trend for all black Victorian-looking neck designs makes me think the wearers need what my parents used to describe as 'a good wash.'

What I least like is the way they get fuzzy as they become older. If I had to have one I would make it my blood type. Or perhaps my PIN numbers.

What inspired you to ask?

loathe also...

especially, the more or less total body work which seems to be very en vogue at the moment.

its all ok, maybe...... when your very young and very pert and all muscles and other body parts in the right places - but as the body ages and grows and maybe shrinks again think look hideous.

and seeing young girls in their "prom" or wedding gowns - that are back less, strapless etc being overshadowed by ugly monstrocitys (sp) on their backs and arms is awful.

in my day..only sailors/soldiers and bad boys on motorbikes had them!

A friend of ours got married a few weeks ago,and she had a Tatoo down the front of her arm,she had it done when she was very much younger ,and has always regreted it as the years went by,even more so when she got the photos back of the big day because most of the people who looked at them made comments regarding her tattoo on show in all the pics .she truly wishes as she has got older that she wishes she had never had it done . but she wouldnt listen at the time ,

My husband has some tattoos, and I like them on him. I also like tattoos on people who embrace them - a friend has both sleeves done, all very artistic, but her general appearance is 'alternative', and so is her occupation - and I've seen some stunning examples of real body ART. On the whole though, I'm not keen on 'non-joined-up' tattoos, eg the lower back 'tramp stamp', or the random swallow, flower, unicorn or heart that so many people seem to choose.

Having said that, their body, their choice, and I certainly don't judge them for it - I just don't find it aesthetically pleasing. I wouldn't rule out having one myself (at age 53!), if I could think of something that really meant something to me - but having to search for an idea means that there's nothing that really means THAT much to me that I want it on my body permanently - though have often considered a small label on the top of my back, that says 'Size 6'. Should I ever actually achieve size 6, I might do it - but I think that's rather unlikely!

OH has one on his upper arm - so is always able to cover it whenever he wants to

i have none - the permanency always put me off

i have a feeling that when the current trend is over, and all the twenty somethings are forty somethings, there will be a lot of people wishing they had never done it
