So you obviously understand things have changed.That could be. Not to mention we grew up when the toughest of tough guys got tattoos. You got them in prison, or you were a biker or you fought in the war. Yeah perhaps enough of us saw how bad they look when people's skin ages. There will be a lot of grandmas who will likely re-think their youthful decisions in about 40 years.
The problem is, tattoos actually meant something back then. Like I said, a select few got it. When a skinny 20 year old with bony arms gets a tattoo it just looks..........................well, bizarre. I am glad my wife never got one before we met, it is a turn off for me when women have them.
Those who used to wear tattoos are no longer the same group as those who currently wear tattoos. Where it used to be sailors and prisoners, sometimes with really poor work done, now it's teenage girls getting really nice work done.
This is the part where you adjust your perspective accordingly (as most of society has, as evidenced by Disney's adjustment of their policies.) Some people getting tattoos today are still getting them in prison or in gangs. Many people getting tattoos today are getting it as an accessory or even a memorial.
We should be able to tell the difference.
