Because they're symbols of pain, practically. You have to go through pain to get them, and I don't think people are getting tattoos of unicorns and puppies.

Tattoos are not symbols on pain, with all due respect. Some people do not feel any pain at all while being inked while others do not have a high threshold for pain and find the procedure uncomfortable. Enjoy your evening.

just because you go through pain to get something doesn't make it a symbol of pain, that is like saying all babies are symbols of pain for their mothers

Ignorance. Fear.

Some see it as a way of disrespecting your body. Some were raised to believe "proper" people do not get them. I am not saying it is right or wrong, just that is the way some people are.

Well because strong people get them because they can handle the pain so they automatically think that person is tough also it takes approximately 30-90 seconds for a human to judge something or someone

Aren't people entitled to their own opinion? :] People have different reasons, so there are multiple answers.

I don't like them because they're a form of positive identification. If the police are after you, and you've got a tattoo, they're gonna find you faster than if you didn't have one.

Because pagans had the tattoos first and it's seen as a pagan looking thing to some people.

but for most people who do get them and even lots who don't get them don't even connect those origins to them anymore

Same reason why some people still think it's bad to be homosexual. We're all involved with tradition and we need to grow up. Tattoos have meaning. The only people who wear unicorn tattoos are people that have the unicorn as a symbol of something big in their lives. If I had a dog that meant the entire world to me and that dog passed away, I would definitely have a tattoo of a dog. People need to leave tradition and learn to accept change.

They last forever, cost a lot, can make you look scummy, and can even get you addicted to getting tattoos. Hidden tattoos are pointless because what are they for, no one can see them. Only something respectful, like an army task force you were in.

It's like getting shot wound by a gun, it gives you a lot of pain, it probably stays there forever and sometimes, it looks really bad.

In the Jewish religion we are not to mark our bodies in anyway especially do to the ink stamping of numbers on Holocaust victims. Also, you cannot be buried in a Jewish cemetery if you have tattoos. Albeit, the rules have somewhat been relaxed, the decision to get a tattoo is yours and yours only. The other members are entitled to their own opinions, of course. However, I have a few and love them!

i did star you here for your comment. i saw your comment on the other post before i saw this post. lol guess i am a little backwards.
Report as
You made me laugh. I doubt you are backward. I am pretty new this site and albeit I won't lose any sleep over it, I think something is wrong with my helpful star. I will post a response, a member comes in right after and basically posts the same answer (not regarding this question) I do and my response was apparently not helpful but theirs was. Oh well. Thanks again and as always, enjoy!

Its mostly because people think that if you got your body clean and you have to return it clean like if you borrowed something from someone you dont ruin it

It's the stereotype of tattooed people maybe?

i honestly think that nowadays, people are pretty used to tattoos. i think that when they object is mostly when the tattoos look like stereotypical tattoos one would expect on the criminal element, or are very "over-the-top" such as whole body tattoos. also, i have noticed that when people get symbols "like hope, faith, love written in the chinese symbol that many people fear these to be cult symbols and react unfavorably.

this is what i have observed and heard, not what i feel.

I just read your profile. You are a kind soul. I thank you again for your comment and though I do not care about helpful stars, I clicked on your star. The only thing that bothers me, about me, albeit I won't lose any sleep over it, were my typos. "do" instead of "due", etc. It's the paralegal in me :-)

(usually those relate to mental health issues). thanks again and you, also, seem to be kind as well. oh and (especially with cell phones), we all have the occasional oopsies with spelling and/or grammar.

for many people it is because of religious beliefs, stereotypes of people with tattoos (dirty, unemployed, lower class) or they just don't like the way they look. also people who get them just to get them make it look bad for everyone who has them.

but I have no problem with them as long as they aren't neck or face or eye or lip or tongue or teeth tattoos (those are real things) which seems way too extreme, and you should give a lot of thought beforehand as getting them removed is more painful than getting them in the first place. and I know that the dirty, filthy low class reputation isn't necessarily true because all but maybe 1 person I know with tattoos is in those circumstances (and I know quite a few)
