    Re: Correlation between tattoos and IQ

    Not that it matters I have issues with self righteous judgements of people who judge others that tattoo themselves. I guess if I had a tattoo in a place that was obvious and someone made a shallow character assessment of it I would most certainly return the favour.

    Stupid people and intelligent people have tattoos.

    Re: Correlation between tattoos and IQ

    I don't think there is a correlation between tattoos and IQ. Some of my friends have ink, and some of it I really think looks good. I don't care about tattoos. If I was a high up businessman I wouldn't not hire someone because they had tattoos or piercing. I think we should stop judging. For many people tattoos are sentimental or mean something more than just body art.

    Probably 40% of all tattoos are memorial tattoos for loved ones, people who have died, or significant events in a person's life. I'd say 25% are for aesthetic reasons, 20% are religiously motivated, 10% are gang or military tattoos, and the remaining 5% are your drunken idiots and people who dont really think about what they get and just get a tattoo because it seems like the thing to do.

    Not actually. Bumperstickers are easy to remove.
