That would be in the eye of the beholder. I myself have tattoos. While I do have them, I do not have a desire to cover my whole body. For those who want to cover their whole body, I do not judge. Everyone has their own reasons for getting tattooed. Getting tattooed or not in itself is freedom of choice.
I don't really get it when people have tattoos covering their arms, chest, back, etc. If you have more than a few that are easily visible, you are probably going to regret it when you're old(er), and it usually means having difficulty finding a good job. I'm all for freedom of expression, but it sucks if it hinders the rest of your life.
I agree with Amethysraven's comment. For me, one tatoo is too many, I simply don't care for them. I don't really see the reason for them or understand the point to having them. I have friends and family with one tattoo and friends with multiple LARGE ones. I don't get it, but that's their body. What they do with their body is their business, not mine.
I guess I don't understand tattoos. An example - the show American Pickers. Danni D. the gal back at the office has a chest tattoo that covers most of her upper chest and part of her shoulders. It looks like a shirt pattern.
Now a lot of women love clothing and do not like to wear the same thing twice in a row or at all. But every time she wears a tank top, it looks like she is wearing the same shirt all the time. I'm not sure why someone would want to do that.
I like change and tattoos are often a permanent manifestation of a temporary interest (not always I know). So for me one is too many.
This is going to be a personal decision that each person will have to make for themselves. Factors like preference and lifestyle are going to vary for each individual.

What is it with so many otherwise sane people marking up their bodies with tattoos? I don't get it.Tattoos are permanent. Years from now you may not want what you want now. What's the deal with that?

Can anyone explain to me why tattoos are so popular?Maybe I'm from a completely different era (I just turned 51), but can anyone explain to me why everyone and their mother has to get a crappy tattoo and show it off to everyone these days? I don't think of myself as a prude-- I'm a punk rock...

How many piercings can the human body stand? Will too much metal metal in your body affect blood circulation or something?Are there any long term side effects?

Which hurts worse, getting a tattoo or waxing your body?People have different thresholds for several types of pain. I'm hoping this question starts an interesting dialog about pain.
