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.

    • Tattoos are just like people, they fade from the moment they're created. It looks fine.  Enjoy it and plan your next one.
    • It will NEVER again look like it did the day it was done. this is normal. It looks fine now, tattoos settle in, keep it out of the sun or use sun block also, and apply Aveeno daily.
    • AFTER  1 MONTH AND 2 WEEKSI'm quite confused about my new tattoo. Why it looks different from the time it was made. It's still 1 month and 2 weeks passed since it was made. This is the picture. Hope someone can help me. Thanks.    NEW
