Tattoo You

We just got back for our vacation at the beach. My in-laws have a small house in Delaware that our family uses during the summer. One of the things I noticed was how many people have tattoos now. When I was a kid, you would only see a few men with them. Now many women have them as well, some of which are very elaborate.
I've never really seen the appeal of them myself, but I can see how people either like just having designs on them, or else have something of significance tattooed on them to show their devotion, like religious themed tattoos or those relating to their families.
Some of them were either really obnoxious or just plain offensive. I saw a couple of "Only God can judge me" tattoos, which led me to think that with that attitude, in a few years they might need a "and the State of Delaware" added to it. Then there was the guy with the SS lighting bolt insignia and the Totenkopf tattoo, complete with skull and crossbones insignia. It seems to me that the message conveyed by one's tats should not be: "I am a complete asshole". First impressions can be tough to shake.

Not to mention that getting rid of tattoos can be painful and expensive.
