Fandango Provocatively asks:
Do you have any tattoos? What is the meaning or significance of them? If you do have tattoos, do you have any regrets about any of them?
I’m wary of doing anything that can’t be undone, and that includes getting a tattoo. It always felt like something I could very likely regret, so why do it in the first place? So no, no tatts.
One likely regret is that it might have looked attractive when my skin was young and firm, but maybe butt ugly when my skin is old and flabby.
Really, for me, any bodily displays, any form of nudity, tatts, etc. are for the young. Us flabby old farts should keep ourselves covered. I suspect that’s why the fashion industry uses twenty-year-olds rather than seventy-year-olds.
There will doubtless be people who’ll tell me that tattoos can be removed, but no, they can’t. Not removed, restoring the skin to its original condition.
Don’t get me wrong – tatts can be attractive. But it ain’t necessarily so.
