do you think there is still a stigma about tatttooed or pierced people like there used to be?

Or do you think more people see it as an art form?

I think it depends on where you live and what the tattoos are of. I think that some people still have that opinion of trouble maker or whatever but I think it is slowly changing. More people are getting them, not just bikers .

Yeah, I think it just depends on the person looking at you, lol. I get a lot of compliments on mine, but then I still get the old people looking at me like I'm crazy! haha!

There is still a stigma for sure. My current job made a huge deal out of people who had tattoos. We even got new rules saying absolutely no arm tattoos and you couldn't even cover it up with a bandage or anything. Not sure how this works since everyone's uniform has long sleeves, but just goes to show you how against them they are.

My last job when I started recently made a new rule that you could show tattoos, yet a girl who had a lotus flower tattooed on her wrist was told to cover it up while other people in different positions had full sleeves and no one ever said anything. A different girl even had her face tattooed...

I don't pay much attention to if people look at my tattoos funny outside of work though. That is there problem not mine.

I think with the younger generation it has become more accepted as an art form. With the older generation they still carry the stigma.
