I like the stares,and questions and comments,and just general tattoo conversation with other tattooed people or plainskins,I don't even really mind cost questions.I like the attention my tattooes get me.
I hate that question, not so much because it's rude, but because you ALWAYS get one of two responses:
1) "Whoa, that's a lot! I'd never spend that much!" and/or "You could have bought a [insert expensive object here] for that much!"
2) "I know a guy who does them for $20, you should go to him!"
Nobody ever thinks it was reasonable, they act like I have to sell my organs to get even a little traditional one shot.
