My father was in WWII and never got a tat and looked down at anybody that had one. I guess his attitude and work ethic rubbed off on me. The only ink I have is in my pens. I did 20+ years in the Army BTW. My wife has a small one on her ankle that I can live with.

Same here. And our religion at the time taught that tattoos were ungodly.

I spent my money on guns, ammo, reloading supplies, my Jeep and a pile of guitars and amps not ink. My daughters have lots of ink, some looks cool, other makes me ask wtf were you thinking and you paid how much?
Only thing I might consider to have tattooed is my grandchildrens names in fancy script on my arm

I have the majority of my right arm done. About 90% of a sleeve. Years ago I got a cross on my inner forearm. A few years ago I added David holding the head of Goliathin one hand and the giant’s sword resting on his shoulder. There are also rejoicing Israelites in the background. Upper bicep shoulder area is Samson ripping open the jaws of the lion. Inner bicep is Moses holding his staff as God parts the Red Sea. Aside from the cross I got 17 years ago the theme is heroes of the Old Testament.

may some future point I would like to do the other arm as one piece. Battle of Armageddon. Christ on the white horse and satan as the dragon with 7 heads and 10 horns.

I'd like to see those!

This isn't mine (I don't have any) but I thought it was kinda cool...

These were the day of ink. I don’t have a current picture showing them all healed. I also don’t have a picture of the Moses parting the Red Sea.

Very cool. It's funny, we all learned about David and Goliath in bible school when we were kids, but for some reason, they only taught us about the slingshot and how Goliath was smote by the stone. They never told us about David picking up Goliaths sword and chopping off his head.

Yep. And I've found it to be true as I stated. Stereotypes are there for a reason bro.
It maybe just the types of people you are around. I know hundreds of people with tattoos, and most did it out of a lose or something that they truly believed in. IMO to stereotype just from one thing about them is absurd and personally I feel idiotic. It seems to me that maybe you have stereotyped in the past and now feel this is they way you need to treat others. I have neither a inflated self worth or low self esteem, and yes I have a couple of tattoos. Some for personal reasons, so cause I was young and dumb. Just to be honest you seem to be the one with a inflated self worth based off this post. I have learned in the few years on this planet, that judging people is not the way to do it, get to know the person before you cast judgment. I'm not coming at this from a religious point, just a real point that I have learned over there few years.
