    Are tattoos worth it?

    They hurt, they are permanent, and are easily regrettable. Is it worth getting one, or are they pretty pointless?

    I am not among the majority, but I think they are pointless.  They are permanent, as you said--It is like wearing the same shirt for a lifetime--what if your ideas, likes, dislikes change over time and there it is that tattoo that is there forever despite the fact the person has changed and moved on.

    Personally I love my tattoos. They not only remind me of where I was and how I got them, but how I was feeling at the time, my interests, etc. They have a story to tell, and they are a part of me. I would love to get more, but I don't have that kind of expendable income with 4 children.

    It depends on the reason behind the tattoo. I have 3, small, black ones. One is a cat on my right wrist, because I love cats dearly and will always love them. On my left wrist is a tribal heart and it symbolizes my new found love for God. The last is on the right side of my neck, behind my ear. It is a dove with a halo that symbolizes my spiritual growth and love for God and Jesus Christ. I value each one and will never regret none of them because they represent things I love and will always love. I also drew them myself and had them put on. I will never put someone else's work permanently on my body.

    If you simple get a tattoo without reason, you will end up regretting it. I know quite a few people that have gotten them and regretted them in the same year. To have something without meaning or purpose is pointless.

    to me they were. my tats all have a meaning or story behind them so yes they were worth it.

    Although they are socially much more acceptable in recent years I would think very carefully about making such a decision. As too are they pointless, there is no definitive answer.  I have one that I got many years ago while overseas in the army. From my perspective it isn't pointless but I have no plans for more.
