Does anybody had insult your tattoos?

Recommended Posts

Yep, it happens. After a few times, you will have a repertoire of lovely comebacks. Most times, I take the high road but there have been a few times where I let loose on the person. It depends on the situation.

Never any comments, just disapproving looks. Some family members have commented, but generally just busting my chops or telling me how little my mom would have liked them.

I'd take no crap from a stranger and promptly tell them to get bent.

Just wondering how to react in that situation...

nobody has ever said anything negative to me about my tattoos,if they do I will blurt out something rude & sarcastic,

I always show mine (clothing wise) as much as I can,

even my work is totally cool with it,the inmates actually compliment me on them.

I wear short sleeves at work and shorts & tees all the other time.

Has someone made you feel bad about your tattoo? They don’t have to like it. It’s a perfectly nice tattoo.

My parents hate my tattoos, but they know they can’t tell me what to do. They just live with them, and we get along fine.

You can't let others run your life. If you like it and/or want others, do what makes you happy and ignore the people that try to bring you down.

My getting tattooed was my statement that after way too many years I'm no longer let others make me feel bad for my choices. It can be tough, but it's well worth it.

I don't really care, I like my tattoos ! Every single one of them. And that is all that matters.  At this point in my life, if someone doesn't like me simply because I am a tattooed person they can go f*ck themselves and frankly I don't have time or want to know them (family included). I choose to express myself the way I have - take it or leave it...

Now if someone wants to get up in my face and insult me about my tattoos (or be rude in general), well you can guess what kind of response they would receive from me...

----really, the majority of people - friends and strangers - have been incredibly positive towards my tattoo expression.

I have the odd conservative person look a bit queasy because of the pain you would assume from some of the nastier spots, but I just smile and laugh. The dumbest comments I have received are along the lines of money ie "how much did that cost" (which I will never answer, I just respond by telling them that is rude) or "that is a waste of money" which I just roll my eyes and end the conversation. It's my money to spend freely and my body my choice...I can guarantee my awesome bodysuit collection did not cost as much as their ugly truck/SUV or cocaine habit haha 😉

Comments about having them or not really don't bother me. Comments about quality or design would, but that usually only happens on another forum where they have a couple members that delight in nit-picking and panning any tattoo with the slightest flaw.
