    I've posted this before but since we're on the subject of tattoos this is my favorite because it's a tribute to my parents.

    They do make it easier to identify the body after the ravages of nature have worked on it.:D

    They are absolutely different than skin color. I didn't choose my skin color at birth. I didn't have my skin color added on voluntarily.

    You give people the option to judge you on your tattoos when you choose to get them. That's part of the choice you make. People will judge others on appearances; an adult going into a tattoo parlor should understand that's part of the deal.

    I have a few. After I retired, I got my wedding ring off (not an easy task) and replaced it with a tattoo.

    Don’t like ink? I don’t care.

    And stay off my lawn!

    Meh. I respectfully, but wholeheartedly, disagree.

    Whether you choose to have color put on your skin, or you were born with color on it... doesn't matter to the person judging you. Insert religion, politics, or Dodge truck owners in there too:) Your daddys, daddy, could have been a Cummins guy his whole life but someone in a Prius will hate you for Rollin' Coal bro, even though you weren't born with a that wallet chain attached.

    Prejudice, Bias, and Bigotry aren't caused by the recipient.

    How you deal with that crap is your choice, and your emotions are not their fault. It's so hard to change them, so... change you.
    Frankly some people are looking for that fight. On both sides of that coin. You can be the whiney 'poor helpless me' about it, you can be an activist to help yourself and the people around you battle the narrow-minded idiots, you can even be apathetic and let it roll off you back. You do you, man.:cheers:

    "It matters not, whether you chose the look you are judged upon."
    Yoda-ish sounding quote I just made up...:elephant:

    From what I’ve seen - admittedly selected by posters to prove a point - there is a serious need to edit and RE-edit text for spelling and grammar before finally committing it to ink.

    Well I appreciate the level headed disagreement without being condescending.

    It sounds like you're more optimistic about society (or at least hope to see it become better) than I am, which is commendable. And yeah, I suppose my way of going about it when people are predictably judgemental is the "let it roll off your back" thing.

    I am playing the long game. One day, my no tattooed body will be seen as rebellious and counter cutler. Then I will be cool.

    I always wanted to get one, just one, on my right upper bicep but could never decide what to get.

    I have nothing against them and some of them are nice looking but don't think they look good on the face or neck and I don't especially like them on women.

    My Brother rode a Harley and used to have some jailhouse tattoos though he never did any hard time, but then later in life he decided he wanted to teach high school and had them removed before he applied for a job.

    He still has his Harley, though.

    You don't get to equate tattoos with racial prejudices. Not even in the same universe
