I'm with you on that.
My roommate has several tattoos and two of them are extremely loud and disturbing. She likes to freak people out I think and she likes the attention she gets from them. I appreciate the art side of tattoo's, and I can be a fan of some on men, but when you go over the top or do it just for shock value that's too much...afterall, that's going to be on your body for the rest of your life. Unfortunately my roomie has a little dead girl with a skull in her lap tattooed on her leg and a bird that is decaying ripping out a heart on the side of her chest. The artwork itself is exquisite, but...eh.
