Its not about "forever". Its about quality. I just dont see that many quality tats from artists that I'd let paint on my skin. Yes I'm fuckin picky.

I have been getting tattoos for 25 years now. I was never a person to get a tat for a reason. People ask me what my tattoos mean and I just laugh. Heavily tattooed people dont get them for meaning something. They just get them because they enjoy them and the whole process and comrodery with the artist. I get one every couple of years and it always sucks because they do hurt. I always remember why I waited to get the next because of the pain but i always get more. I'm do for some more but the covid has put a stop to things like that.

My friend Dan let me and some friends tattoo our initials on his leg. Yes it was very sanitary with professional equipment - we were at another friend's legit shop, but no we did not have any clue what the fuck we were doing. It's anything but quality haha, but still a very personal piece

But to your point, if I wanted a mural painted on a wall in my house, i wouldnt let some rando make some nonsense, and that's wholly removable. so I get it.

Re: Poll: What's cooler, scars or tattoos?

Tons of people permanently change their appearance by eating too much shit and getting fat.

It's not permanent, but I see women wearing makeup that makes them look like super model clowns.

fashion changes and I don't really appreciate all of it.

Point is, there's lots of ways to present ourselves and it should be an individual choice. Tattoos and scars are a hot topic. I'll be more likely to coach my children on not getting fat or disfiguring their appearance with cosmetics. The choice is entirely up to them though.

I don't know if I said this before, but personally, I think tattoos look good on good looking people and just make less attractive people look worse. That's not a really nice thing to say but there it is.

And then there's cosmetic tattooing. Permanent eyeliner etc.

I thought about getting a tattoo on my scar. 5” long scar on my chest where they removed my nipple. I had melanoma on that bitch. I’m still alive now.

Wifey said they can do a tattoo that looks just like a real nipple now. I’m too fluffy around the middle to run around without a shirt anymore anyway.

If i did get a nipple tattooed on, I’d probably have them put it 2” too high and 3” to the left just to fuck with people.

Make it like an oversized pepperoni

Re: Poll: What's cooler, scars or tattoos?

I knew a girl who had alopecia of eybrows, it looked kinda awesome but she eventually had some tattoed on that looked really nice.

I’ve thought about getting tats, for like 50 years now, but still haven’t decided on something I’d be happy with for the rest of my life. It’s kinda weird. All my friends have tats. I have no issue with tats. I guess it’s just not for me. I’ve got plenty of gnarly scars though.

Tats are cool, but when i see someone with more hardware in their face than Lowes has in aisle 16, that’s a little fucked up.

Re: Poll: What's cooler, scars or tattoos?

ha, yea I know some really great folks with a lot of piercings, in the moped community too, Kellan and Kali from Bang Gang, top notch folks. but they pierce folks for a living - at that point it is its own community - like mopeds. it's part of the collection/hobby

Again, not my thing but I did pierce my ear with a friend and have never regretted it. It's fun hunting down funny ear gear and since we each only did one ear we can split the good pairs. TWINSIES

I have a similar sized scar from melanoma on my stomach. I actually had the mole that was malignant looked at because I was planning on having my torso completely tattooed and wanted it looked at before it got covered.

Now I am waiting till it's healed fully so that the first line doesn't tear it open like a paper lantern.

Maybe a square nipple, yeah.

Exhaust pipe brands 4 da win

No tats but serious scars. Went threw a 2nd story window at 5 years old. Looks like I was a suicide survivor add the fancy Titainium plate they had to slap in from the hit and run.

But my ankle where the pipe goes will never grow hair.

Re: Poll: What's cooler, scars or tattoos?

I was attacked by the guard dog at my dad's biker clubs club house when I was four.I have the scars on my face for life.Tattoos are def cooler trust me.

Beards are made 4 horrific facial scars

Scars are not self inflicted usually so it's apples and oranges. Just like an old dog they built up.160 stiches in my face 138 just under my eye. 233 on my wrist hand fingers left. They did extensive reconstructing my orbital socket in 88.

Tats are chosen life stories you want to remember. Scars are to remind you of experience. Don't do it again a reminder of stupidity or reminder of negligence of someone else.

Branding is a tat thing so are mods and piercings.

Re: Poll: What's cooler, scars or tattoos?

holy fuck that’s gnarly

Re: Poll: What's cooler, scars or tattoos?

At first glance when I see a person with tattooed arms or backs I just see this,

the cover of a child's school note book.

I goes no further because I am not going to look for detail or god forbid ask the person the significance of the tiny doodles.

I just have to accept it as an article of clothing that they chose to wear every day for the rest of their lives.

But if I see a good scar hell yeah there is a actual story there that the person did not choose. I will ask about that even point and touch. (edited)

Re: Poll: What's cooler, scars or tattoos?

I don’t care about what’s going on in that page of doodles either.

I do want to know what’s going on over there <===

Because all those heads are facing that way.

I don’t ask about scars or tattoos until I know somebody pretty well. I learned the hard way a couple times. Listening for way too long. And I like long stories.
