TATTOOS - GOOD OR BAD?

Lots of people, like tattoos, including celebrities, and that include ladies also. I have no idea why people fancy tattoos, and I'd like to know how you feel about it. I personally do not favor them, and there will be a cold day in hell before I will have one done on myself. But, somehow a tattoo on a guy, in my opinion, is more acceptable than on a girl. Don't you agree?

Take a look at Marisa Tomei, a tattoo on the foot, and no, it doesn't look terrible, but not great either.



My all time favorite, Megan, I think I read somewhere she has about 13 tattoos on her body. Granted, they do not look bad, nicely done, but what if one day she doesn't want them anymore? How will she ever be able to erase them without a trace? Marked for life....?



Amber Tamblyn, again, not a bad looking tattoo, still....



Alyson Hannigan, first time on my blog, flaunting a tattoo just above her ankle.



Last one, and you will have to take my word for this one, these feet belong to Alyssa Milano, also a first timer, such pretty high heeled sandals, complimenting her feet so nicely, but, and this is purely my opinion, it gets spoiled by the tattoo, and this tattoo I can honestly say, does not look nice.



Please, do not get me wrong, my blog is not about judging people, or bad mouthing anybody, or gossiping, it is a blog purely about opinions and how to improve appearances. So, do you think tattoos improve a person's appearance...? Would an extra piece of jewelery not have done the trick, a ring, a bracelet, a toe ring perhaps, ankle chain, nail varnish, extra color in the outfit, a different hairstyle? Something that can be removed or changed easily when you get tired of it....
Thanks for listening to my yapping..

Oh wonderful we get to disagree again!

I think Alyson Hannigan looks gorgeous and I like her tattoo. Megan's tattoos I'm not too fond of personally.

I don't have any tattoos but I'll probably get one or a few before I end up in the giant shoe store in the sky (or is that underground???).

Little Red said...

I really like tattoos. Although I feel that some people cannot wear them as well as others. I'm not a fan of tattoos on the leg or around the ankle. Honestly, I think it just looks tacky.

Nor am I really a fan of women having tattoos on their arms. But that's just some women. There are a lot of women who have amazing tattoos on their arms. I don't mind Megan's, but I don't think it's the greatest thing. I wouldn't have chosen that spot if I were her. I think it just seems weird on some people, I suppose. Kat Von D is covered in tattoos and I think she looks great. It fits her.

I definitely think people are more accepting of tattoos on men.

I only have one tattoo. It's on my back, just below my neck. It is pretty easy to cover up. (Quite necessary because my dad hates tattoos and doesn't know I have it!) I do plan to get more in the future. However, all of my tattoos will have a meaning behind them and will be in places that are easy to cover.

I think tattoos are great as long as they are well done and in a good location on the body. But I wouldn't consider it as a way to improve your appearance.

Wow, sorry that's so long!

Shinade aka Jackie said...

I think some tattoos are flattering and have been tempted myself to get one.

But, it is such a permanent thing and I don't like that aspect.

Also in the bottom photo I think her feet and calf would be much more attractive without the tattoo.

It's faded and I think it ruins her entire dress up look.

Now if she were in jeans, shorts and flip flops then it might look different.

But, all dressed up like this I think it ruins her look!!

Just my opinion of course!! Thanks for stopping in!!

Jackie:-)

Colin said...

Shoe Fairy, yeah we disagree again, only this time it seems you have all the backup and I have none really so far. :-) Everybody so far seems to agree that tattoos are ok in one way or another. Shoe store in the sky or underground? Well, if you are a good girl, your body will go underground, tatoos included, your soul will go to the shoe store in the sky.
Thanks for the comment, and I do not mind if you disagree with me, it makes my blog just more fun.

Colin said...

Little Red, long story, short story, they are all welcome. I agree with you, some people wear tattoos better than others.
I also think that Megan's doesnt look that bad, even if there are many, but then that is Megan, she wears everything well. Kat von D I have not seen, at least not that I can recall, but I will try and get someting of her. Yes, and some tattoos are ok as long as they are well done and not tacky. Uhhm, what is your father's e mail address, I cannot wait to tell him about your tattoos...hahaha... just kidding...
Thanks for that comment, it seem like I discovered a nice subject here, all replies are quite lively, spirited, and lengthy, I love that.

Colin said...

Stiletto Lover, ok, the votes against me are getting more and more by the hour. But as I say, this seems like a great subject as far as comments go. Thanks for your input, it is great to see people disagree with me for a change.

Colin said...

Janet, thanks, that was quite short and sweet, but you made your point, it seems like everyone is enjoying this subject. Thanks for your input, and thanks for visiting.

Colin said...

Jackie, your opinion, that is what matters, I love to see different opinions. It seems like we at least agree on some of the points, and yes, the tattoo in the last pic doesn't compliment her appearance at all.
Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for your input. I value your opinion.

Mystery Man said...

i'm not a fan of tats. As a matter of fact, they're rather a turn off for me, but if a woman has them, i won't ocmplain, unless they have more ink than visible skin, y'know? 'm just weird like that, i suppose.

Colin said...

Mystery Man, aaah, welcome, at last someone who agrees with me... some tattoos look really gross, specially as you say if there is more ink than skin...
Thanks for your comment, at least we have two votes now...against a majority of 5! But it is a very interesting subject, it has made for very strong points of view.
Thanks again, and hope to see you around again soon.

kirstyb said...

I can go both ways with this one. I myself have 3 tattoos which i love and wouldnt change EVER! but having said that when im all dressed up for a wedding in strappy sandals the last thing i want to be seen is the tattoo on my ankle which turns sophistication into trampy? I dont know but on a daily basis i love the tatto on my ankle. Im most probably completely contradicting myself but the tattoo is part of the person like megan fox for example i think she looks great and she carries the tattoos well and as for alysa she rocks them also. and as for my incohrant babbbling i am going now lol xoxox

Peeptoes said...

tatoos...depends on who´s wearing them! we´re not fans of tatoos... but it´s true than some celebrities wear them better than others! in our opinion they look sexy and cool if you have them somewhere where it doesn´t shows a lot, for example on the wirst, but those on the shoulder, back, or foot... aren´t cool at all!!
xoxo

thesydneygirl said...

i like tattoos! mostly on men.

i think a tasteful tattoo is great - if it has great meaning also.

personally i don't see myself getting one right now cause there's nothing that i would want permanent on me. there's nothing meaningful enough that i feel the need to tattoo on myself.

id probably sketch it if that were the case and put it up in my room.

that's my thoughts :P

hope you have a wonderful day!!!

CC said...

Im not too big on tattoos. They can look good, but I feel they mostly end up getting in the way of what can be something gorgeous. Like with Alyssa Milano. The shoes are gorgeous, but the tattoos killed it.

Colin said...

Kirstyb, wow, that was a earful, thanks for that comment, it seems like this post has really drawn some great responce from everyone.
Thanks again.

Colin said...

Peeptoes, hi, thanks for that opinion, I want to almost agree with you, sometimes it looks ok, sometimes it looks gross, specially as Mystery Man said, if there is more ink than skin....
Thanks for stopping by.

Colin said...

Sydneygirl, what you said makes a lot of sense, and with your talent in drawing, you'd most likely do better drawing than any tattoo can do.
Thanks for the input, really appreciate it.

Colin said...

CC, my point exactly, she would have looked just so much better without that tattoo right there on her ankle.
thanks for sharing your opinion with us!

Mila said...

Awesome tatoos!
Oh i love reading your opinions!

Colin said...

Mila, thanks, and I am glad you like my opinions!
Thanks for visiting and thanks for leaving us your thoughts.

Please visit again. :)

The Little Fashion Treasury said...

Hi and thanks so much to you and your lovely comment on my blog!

Mmh, I honestly have to say that I´m not a fan of tattoos for women; I believe the heels would look better without another "eyecatching" addition ;)

Have a beautiful day!

Little Fashion Treasury, You are welcome. Thanks for the comment, I am not completely against tattoos, but in some cases they are terrible.
Hope to see you again.

Bill said...

Peeptoes said...

Hi again Colin! We're glad you've like our post! Here in Spain it's really hot, hope your nearly in Summer! Have nice day and thanks for your lovely comments!

xx!

Noble Beeyotch said...

Not a huge fan of tattoos myself. I hate how every part of megan's body is filled with tattoos!

Hunters Glory said...

Tats can look sexy and add to the attraction ..or look trashy and make one look very rough around the edges.

I like 'em on women if they bring a fashion sexiness to their look.
They dont make awoman look sexy , but they add to their sexiness. If the gal isnt sexy ...then I think its a waste and trashes 'em up.

Now if i am doing the the tatooing...well now that can be fun as well......

;)

sexy legs and body said...

Hi Bill, yep, on one point we agree, never a tattoo on myself. A tattoo in the right place on a woman can be acceptable, but rather not. I do not like the tattoo on Alyssa's ankle, I think it spoils her ankle, and her foot, but then, that is my humble opinion.
Thanks for visiting Bill, it is always a pleasure to "hear" your opinion.

sexylegsandbody said...

Peeptoes, you are sooo welcome, and be careful what you wish for, if it is summer here, you have winter... :-) But I do appreciate your kind wishes. You do have a wonderful site.
Thanks again.

Keith said...

No offense to anyone who has a tattoo. My brother has like 8 or so. His wife has a lot too. My sis has one. I have other relatives and friends with varying numbers. Personally I've just never wanted one.

Colin said...

Noble, hi, I agree with you on not being a huge fan of tattoos, but the tattoos on Megan can go, she actually wears it well, but then, Megan wears just about anything well. :-) Thanks for sharing your opinion with us, it is great to get so many different points of view.
Have a super day!

Colin said...

Ah Gary, good point you have there, I think you hit it close to home, it can add to the woman's sexyness, but if she isnt sexy, a tattoo will not help it.
The part about doing the tattoo yourself, well I can see where that can be fun.... for you... lol...
Thanks for sharing your comments with us, appreciate your input and opinion.

Colin said...

Hey Keith, well, you are correct of course, if they fancy a tattoo it is fine, it is every person's choice of course in the end of the day, but not on me!
Thanks for leaving that thought with us, always value your opinion. I guess this subject has really caused a lively discussion, just about all comments are long and make for good reading, and logic arguing, it almost changed my point of view on tattoos... lol ...I love that!!

The Demigoddess said...

I have four tattoos on me. I think they look okay. Some people like them. I think it really depends on the location of the tattoo, the design, the color...I love tattoos but on some people, they look off.

Colin said...

Demigoddess, welome to mysite, hey, as long as you are happy. I also think the location, type and design of the tattoos makes a difference. and you are of course correct, on some ppl they look terrible.
Thnks for commenting, and thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.

KIRAFASHION said...

The only person I am crazy about with the tattos is Angelina Jolie...she is gorgeous anyway...I think tattoos are great, but the great ones...most of the people I know in real life don't have great tattoos...it´s a contradition....

Colin said...

Kira, hi, thanks for visiting and sharing your thoughts. Love to hear from you. Yes, Angelina is lovely, and to be honest, I forgot about her when I wrote this post, but thanks for reminding me.

Colin said...

Thanks Janet, you are sooo kind, have already taken a look. Thank you so much!

Dorothy L said...

Oh I love those. Very sexy :)

Dorothy L said...

As far as tattoos..my daughter has a new one...stars sloping down the side of her waist. I thought when I heard about it...yikes...but I just saw it and it is very nice and actually quite sexy:)

Depends on where it is, what it is and how overdone it is :)

emma j said...

i just got my first tattoo last weekend. a blak outline of a sparrow on my middle lower back. i think its important to get your first tattoo hidden. i love mine though i keep forgetting i have it haha

sexylegsandbody said...

Dorothy, you have a point there, if it is nicely done, I guess it is ok. YOu know what, all of the comments for tattoos have almost convinced me that it is ok (for others) to have a tattoo, but not on me. I must admit, my mind has slightly changed about tattoos since I posted this...
Thanks for your input, love to have you around!

sexylegsandbody said...

Emma j, welcome to my site! Well \I guess congratulations are in order then. I take it this will not be the last one you will be getting, so I guess the next one will be more easily visitble...?
Thank you very much for visiting and for commenting, I love to know what my readers think, so please feel free to leave comments when ever you feel like it. :)
Tnanks again.

I love Tattoos! Not too many, but a few tasteful tattoos definitely add to the sex appeal
