7 Things Not To Say To Someone With Tattoos

I got my first tattoo when I was almost sixteen with my mom. I’ve gotten two more since then and always get tons of questions about them. People with tattoos have a common understanding of tattoo question etiquette, but people without tattoos don’t seem to use the best judgement when discussing ink.

Whether or not you agree, getting tatted up is personal. It’s your body, you do what you want with it. People with tattoos are still people, just with art permanently on their skin. Before you start talking to people with tattoos about their ink, you might want to consider these things first.

Do you have any tattoos? Do people ever ask you questions? What’s the worst thing someone has said to you about your tattoos? Tell us in the comments!

    I hate when a stranger will come up to me and say “Is that tattoo real?” NAHHHHHH its not, I’m a mentally challenged adult who draws on their arm with a sharpie before I go anywhere.” Bunch of dumb people I swear.

    I love tattoos and I have 9 so far and planning to get more. I don’t mind people asking a about mine at all

    Is it ok to ask about the meaning or say “I couldn’t get a tattoo because of the pain?”

  • Ash

    I have a few tattoos and I get asked about them from time to time. I don’t mind answering questions. People usually wanna know if i hurts, and I think that’s understandable, especially if they plan on getting one in the future. Certain parts of the body hurt worse than others.

    Tattoos are so cool! I wish I had the courage to get one, but I’m afraid of how much it’d hurt >.<

  • Vanessa

    Is it okay to ask if a tattoo has a significant meaning? Or is it okay to ask if it hurt? And is it okay to ask when they got a certain tattoo?
