    I have 7 grandchildren, the oldest among them already know that following certain crowds will get them booted from the small crowd that stands to inherit about $100K each.....

    Well, I dunno... 35 of the US presidents - including Bush - had tattoos. Maybe the whole low IQ thing is actually true.

    I don't have a full list, I just read that at a couple different sources over the years, actually. OTOH, I remember Polk, FDR, Teddy Roosevelt, Bush, Pierce, Buchanon

    I have none. I wouldn't necessarily judge someone by tats if they were not easily seen through standard dress. However, if someone's just treated his or her body like a NYC sidewalk, I would think of them as lower in intellect.

    Forgot to say .. the reason I decided to have it on my back across my shoulders is because I didn't want to see it all the time. Further I think that when or if I manage to be an old man the meaning will still be or have merit to me as opposed to an ex gf's name or skull cross bones (for example) that I would view differently then. It is something you have to live with.

    Re: Correlation between tattoos and IQ

    I've learned not to judge people based on their tattoos.

    I had a friend with a tattoo of baby Taz on her arm. We were having lunch one day and a guy walking past the restaurant pointed at her tattoo and laughed, "What the hell is that? That's for kids!" My friendly politely explained that the tattoo was in memory of her daughter who had died from Tay Sachs, baby Taz was her daughter's favorite character.

    After she explained it, a woman sitting behind us turned around and asked the guy "So...scale of 1-10...how dumb do you feel?"

    I have one tattoo on my arm so far but I plan to get MANY more as finances permit.

    I dont think tattoos are a good reflection of a person's intelligence. Even very intelligent people can get a bad tattoo or have a Tequila-fueled visit to a bad artist. We also have to keep in mind that tattoos are art and as such are completely subjective.
