How to deal with annoying meaning of tattoo question

Recommended Posts

Not sure why some get so annoyed by this question.

Options for responses:

Tell them the truth. "Thought it was cool and I wanted it."

Keep them guessing. "It's personal and I only tell certain people."

Make up a fun story. "It's a reminder of the time I got separated from my group while on safari in lion country....." "I had a pet lion when growing up, but had to give him to the zoo when he got big."

My first couple tattoos don't really show but have been asked by a few who have seen them. Neither of them have a deep meaning but each of them have 'hidden' elements that are only known to 2-3 people and are incredibly meaningful to me. But, basically....my tattoos are images of things that I have liked very much since childhood. I love the art and have been lucky to work with an amazing artist on these first 2.

.....so, to answer the OP's question I would reply 'because the art is amazing, I like tattoos, and mostly just because I fucking want them' LOL

I usually don't mind being asked if its one on one and the person is really interested in tattoos.

I had too many people ask me,who really don't like tattoos.

I hate being around a lot of people when someone asks about my tattoos,because everyone stops

what they are doing to listen to my answer.I don't like attention.
