I love ink that has a story.
I really don't like it when people go into a shop and point at an image and say "Oh I like that one, I want that!". It's a pet peeve of mine. Why get something permanently etched onto your skin if it isn't personal and doesn't have a significant meaning?
I personally feel that ink should be art. It should be well thought out, contextual (for your own experience) and have a story that tells you something about the person you're looking at.
I remember seeing a joke quote somewhere, can't remember where. But it was something along the lines of "Every time I see a person with a barbed-wire tattoo, it tells me they lost a fight with the 90's". That's pretty much how I feel about tribal tattoos, tramp stamps, barcodes, and angel wings.

I love them on both men and women and I have several myself. Meh they are just art on the skin. Those with tattoos are no more/less bogan, educated or decent than those without them.
I want a half sleeve in japanese, with maybe a koi and pretty flowers that go with the cherry blossoms on my ribs I really couldn't care less what others think.

Tbh - no, can't stand them on females. But then I love them on guys... Sexist I know.
If I was EVER going to get one (which I won't) it would have to be something special and symbolic

all mine reflect this - some people ask why i don't have more and the truth is i don't want 'fillers' - oh, that's a nice picture. i'll tattoo it on my skin....
i like one offs, things that mean something only to the person who's skin it is on.
