If your body is 60% covered in tattoos people will start to question your judgement, they can't relate to why someone would do that.
It's likely a person with that many tattoos can't get a normal job, it would have to be something dark like tattoo parlor guy, nightclub employee etc. Sure there are some successful artist/musician types with tattoos, but they are the exception, and even they are usually not the brightest because of their rock and roll lifestyle.
So, unless that person can find a way to earn money they probably shouldn't have gotten so many tattoos, unless they want a weird job, or they somehow have a lot of money.
And no, they probably aren't just bright people 'choosing' not to have money, it was likely a series of bad decisions (one of them getting their body covered in 60% tattoos) that led them to having no money.
all this ^^^ not to mention the # of criminals that have tattoos supports the idea that if you have that many tattoos, you're just not smart, or you're living a life that's harder than it needs to be, which in itself isn't that smart.

I agree OP. People tend to forget that 99% of people with tattoos 20 years ago and beyond had extensive criminal records, now it has spread to the rest of the population as just a trendy thing to do. Take a look at rap music, 20 years ago only real thugs and hoodlums listened to it, now it has spread to the rest of the population. Minions gonna minion bro. Let people do what they want it's their lives and they ultimately have the right to do whatever they want with it as long as it does not affect other's lives. Although you could make the argument how the two examples I brought up do affect other people's lives not just the person with teh tattoo/listening to rap music. But really I don't want to rant. I should make a blog. It'd be pretty sweet.
Dare I make the connection between the two examples and the degradation of our society the past few decades? Connect the dots

Winston Churchill. The famous former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Nobel Prize Winner had an anchor tattoo on his right arm. Lady Randolph Churchill, his mother, also had a snake tattoo on her right wrist. Winston Churchill was one of the first famous politician to have, or at least admit to having, a tattoo.
President Theodore Roosevelt.*The 32nd president of the United States proudly bore a tattoo image of his family crest across his chest. Not many people are aware of this famous politician’s tattoo because it was simply in a location which was not readily visible.* It was not that he was ashamed or regretted the tattoo, but the location that made it inconspicuous.
Caroline Kennedy. This famous politician with a tattoo may have regrets about her artwork. During a trip to Hong Kong in the ‘80s Caroline and cousin Kara Kennedy were challenged by John F. Kennedy Jr. and Teddy Kennedy Jr. to get inked. She ended up with a small butterfly tattoo on her arm, near the inside crook of her elbow. At the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver, the audience receives a glimpse of the tattoo, which looks like it is in the process of being removed.
Barry Goldwater. Known as the father of modern U.S. conservatism, he had a very small tattoo on the underside of his left hand. This tattoo was a crescent moon with 4 dots, which is the trademark of the Smoki People. The Smoki People is a group of people, based in Arizona, which functions as a sort of Boy Scouts for grownups. Mr. Goldwater campaigned for the Presidency of the United States in 1964. This was a time in which tattoos were not socially acceptable, yet that did not stop Mr. Goldwater from being one of the few famous politicians with a tattoo.
John Fetterman. Mayor of the town of Braddock Pennsylvania. Described him as "America's coolest mayor" in many publications. He has also appeared on "The Colbert Report" in 2009.One of his forearms displays the number 15104 in bold black type, which is the zip code of the town of which he is mayor.* The other forearm bears a list of six dates. These are the dates on which people have died in awful circumstances under his watch. Now that is a dedicated mayor!

Whoa sweet trip to the 1960s but now back to the present, I've preformed epidermal illustrations for doctors, judges, lawyers, cops, multitudes of nurses, chefs, architects and even a few advanced engineers.
However the most common clients are college students so that kinda validates your "no job" assumption.
Anyway congratulations on making assumptions on a culture you actually don't seem to know anything about..my bioforge v3 and xfactor advanced log http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=145492591

You can make up all the statistics that you want because you dont like something.
You just need to keep your fukking mouth shut on subjects you really have no knowledge of. Of all of the tattoo defenders that have posted in this thread, you choose a Female to try to feel superior to by talking down to her? You are a bitch. You need to grow up. Life is different when you move out of mommy and daddies house, but you wouldnt know that would you?

2. Generally a person with a lot of tattoos doesn't want some cushy office job, but if they do, they make "cover-up" for the parts that are exposed outside of your suit. Problem solved.
3. There is zero correlation between inmates in prison and people getting tattoos because they like it.
4. Its a person's choice to get a tattoo. Take that away and we're just one step closer to Nazi Germany.
Edit: Also about every person I know in the military has a tattoo. Guess they're all low life scum losers.

I don't think all people with tattoos are this way, but if there is that many, I will definitely question that person's level of sanity more than the average person.

This is how i feel about prison color looking tats... good tats are expensive as fuk so when i see a full sleeve on a guy or girl and its of good quality i do not think they are "trash". good tats cost several hundred dollars.... theres nothing trashy about being able to blow money of that size on something they want... unless, of course, they robbed a bank for it.
edit: now... tribal tattoos and facial tattoos... thats a different thing all together.. the former are posers and ha latter lack common sense. One's face is very important and you do not want to tat that up.

I have 3 tattoos, and I'm becoming a registered Nurse in 1 year, then becoming an Anesthetist 2 years after that.
In other words,if you ever get in a car accident,and 1/2 your body is torn to pieces, I will be the one putting the ivy in you,putting you to sleep, putting you on the verge of death, and bringing you back up when your operation is complete to save your life.
However, I guess I'm just a homeless piece of trash. brb, enjoying driving my brand new 2011 Audi.
****ing pathetic loser. Get a life kid. Btw, do you even lift?You look like sh**

We Americans arent prudes. You see with all the hate of people who are different than you, we can NEVER be a free world. We can never be at peace. So does your mother have pierced ears? I would say your girlfriend but that would just be making fun of you for being a virgin. So does your mom or sisters have pierced ears? Then they have a body modification. They liked the way ears looked pierced...they changed/altered their appearance, do you question their sanity? Its the same thing. Body modification is body modification.

Do you realize over 70% of Nurse Anesthetists are males?Anesthesia is a hard job, dumbass. That's why my salary will be up to $200k A YEAR, while you're busy sucking dicks at a desk job for 70k.
The first step to doing Anesthesia is to be an RN. I don't have a problem with being an RN, seeing I'm a 6'0 205lb ripped and bulked up male that probably benches 2X whatever you squat, and also has a gorgeous 10/10 fiancee. Btw, I suggest you don't ask for my AVI or pictures, because my arms are 3X your size, and it will be an embarrassment to you. Especially since I'm a tatted straight guy that could kick your ass and looks 3X your size you little sh**.
Enjoy being red phaggot. And I'll make sure if I see you on the operation table, that I kill you instead of healing you.

However, many others think this way. Most others don't understand the mentality of people with tattoos as the majority of people are alienated by the idea because they themselves would likely never cover themselves head to toe in ink. Because of this lack of understanding the general public appears to hold some level of discrimination against people who look this way, they do this by portraying people with tattoos as the 'villain'.
So, because a lot of people have this misconception about people with tattoos it doesn't make sense from a logical standpoint to get many tattoos (remember that 60%?) when it's just going to make your life harder. Would you wear a pink t-shirt in grade school? no because even if you loved pink you probably weighed the pros and cons and realized that other people judging you as a phaggot when you are not and that wouldn't be worth the trade off of sporting that shirt. If you aren't living to make your life better for yourself that is stupid, and I will question your sanity.
So to clear things up, tattoos does not = stupidity. But it is a factor to consider in the society we live in where people who have tattoos are not generally favored over those who don't.
