Yeah, last week I attended Bay Hill golf and saw Rickie Fowler with small size Olympic rings on his forearm. That looked classy enough and understandable pride in the accomplishment.
Overall I associate tattoos with short term stupidity. Most laughable era of all was the tramp stamp a decade or more ago. Fortunately I talked a couple of girls out of it, including one online. They have all thanked me subsequently. Now married with children and can't believe they almost succumbed to that type of thing, as their friends are either embarrassed or have had them removed.
It is not a skilled profession or high level undertaking. Others have already touched on that. The projection is grand and the result mediocre, but then you've got to pretend otherwise for life. If tattoos were the Olympic 100 meter dash most of them would be lucky 13.13
