Gaining opinions from others regarding your tattoo

We as humans can be quite impulsive and jump into decisions that may or may not lead us to the right conclusion. Considering how getting inked is a process that sticks with us, it is important that the person getting the tattoo gets opinions from others as well.

As per tattoo design inc and other sources it has been advised that in these scenarios our close ones can help us make the right decisions and get into processes that are beneficial for us. Such as choosing the right design or position for our tattoo.

How helpful do you think it is to get an opinion of others for tattoo?

I haven’t any tattoos myself and don’t find them particularly appealing, but I am aware that they sometimes don’t stand the test of time.
I shared a room with another woman teacher on an outdoor activity course with our students. I am naturally quite shy and reserved but she was not and she wandered around naked, not something I had a problem with.
She did, however, share her tattoos with me, informing me of the sentimental reasons behind each one.
Without being unkind, I couldn’t help but smile when she invited me to look at the small bouquet of flowers on her derrière, a momento of her courtship with her long time and delightful husband. The years and gravity had taken their toll on these inked flowers , now sadly wilted, their petals faded and drooping.
Needless to say, I didn’t offer towater them!

my Granddaughters tattoo's are beautiful designs and well executed but it seems very addictive as though they don't know when to stop having them. What can be deemed as tasteful soon becomes excessive, but then I'm an old man and totally out of touch with the youth of today.

I looked quickly on that site and it was impressed with the woman who lost a lot of weight late in life in order to have her tattoo's which gave her a real 'feel good' factor. there must be something therapeutic about having them.

Manuel, I dislike tattoo's, but I respect other peoples right to do as they please with their bodies. My children and grandchildren all have them. It's only my opinion but some of the tattoo's will look hideous in later life. I sometimes wonder whether, also, there could be a health danger associated with them as we 'breath' through our skin. I have got numerous 'piercing' marks of which I'm very proud. Those are where I have given blood most of my life,
