It's none of my business. Still, the notion of injecting a foreign substance into your body that will remain there forever seems a bit troubling to me.

Maybe it's my age. But all the guys I know, down to the man, who got tatoos when they were younger have lived to regret the decision.

I was at dinner in Las Veas a couple of years ago. The server, a young woman, had just gotten her right arm completely inked up from the back of her hand to beyond her elbow. It was even in full color. She was quite pleased with herself and I would say it matched the bar in her eyebrow. She was not providing particularily noteworthy service and commented about how her arm was somewhat sore.
The conversation got around to jobs and such and as a former recruiter, I asked her if she was aware of what her recent artwork was saying about her. She said she was not and was interested in my thoughts. I told her that as a former recruiter, to me, she was not employable. She seemed indignant and asked why. I said that due to her artwork she has appeared to either not be able or was unwilling to exercise good judgement.
Our poor level of service quickly sank to new lows.

The point to this story is that others perceive you as they see you and although bad first impressions can be overcome, they cannot be undone.

Can't you just get one of those Freedom-2 tattoos that are a lot easier to remove if you end up regretting it?
I don't know anything about them and I believe there are some methods now where tatoos can be mostly removed. The question I have is if you think you may possibly have it removed later, why put it there to begin with?

Well I have never really liked tattoos at all so its not much of an issue for me. But a couple reasons I can come up with are:

1. The tattoo artist does a crappy job and you don't like the outcome.
2. They look better when you're young but when you start to age your tattoo will start to look a lot worse.
3. A lot of people don't think that they'll regret it later on so better safe than sorry.

I had a buddy that had tattoo sleeves on both arms and he worked in customer service. He always wore long sleeves and his work did not find out for 9 months. One day his boos ran into him outside of work in a short sleeve shirt and the next day he got demoted to the back of the business out of sight of the customers. No one had ever see the tattoos before but the reasons sig gave were the same ones he was given.

I'll go ahead and be the resident "bible thumper" I guess it is pertinent if you believe in the old testament.

Leviticus 19:28
" 'Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD.' "

Makes for humorous fodder when you see someone with a cross tattoo.

But then again I cut my hair and shave my beard, so whatever.

these times will pass. The baby boomers are the ones who perceive stereotypes for tattoos.
