M point is they want to be noticed, I very much doubt they give a damn what people think, but the whole point is people have a right to think. Just like they have a right to have a tattoo. If someone did not want to be noticed they would not get a visible tattoo like that.
I am not saying it is a bad thing, but as I pointed out, they were not born with it, its their choice and they would have to be extremely naive if they think people will not comment on it.
Infact, I reckon many would be "insulted" if you actually said "I never noticed a tattoo on them"
Looking at that woman (who we are talking about) they are not attoos that are permenantly visible. They are visible there because she's wearing a short sleeved, low cut dress. Is that the attire she wears on a day to day basis? Highly unlikely!
I have tattoos on my wrirsts. I didn't get them 'to be noticed' I got them because they were something I wanted. Every person that I've known to get tattoos have got them for the same reasoning. Very few people get them 'to be noticed'. If someone wants to comment on my tattoo they're welcome to do so, but I don't go running around with short sleeves rubbing them in people's faces and I don't know anyone that does either.
Most people I know with tattoos (and people with them in general) have them in places where they're covered up so chances are you'd not notice a tattoo on them (and they wouldn't be insulted if you didn't notice). One of my friends has a tattoo that's like snakeskin down her back. Now you'd not notice it unless you knew it was there and she showed you it. Most people's tattoos are like that.
No, people are not born with tattoos, but there's plenty of things people aren't born with that people might comment on. Looking at myself right now, there's the clothes I'm wearing, theres the wristbands around my wrist, my jewellery, my dyed hair, my glasses. When I got out I also wear a jacket and (obviously) shoes. Often I also have a bag. Now a person could comment on any of those things and claim I 'want to be noticed' because of them. Do I? Nope.I just want to get on with my day and my life. My point is that people will probably make comments about just about anything about you, not just tattoos. So what should we do? Should we all dress and look the same because someone might make a comment about it?
