    Re: Correlation between tattoos and IQ

    I have a sword encirlced with a rose vine and a single red rose on one shoulder and a wooden cross adorned with eagle feathers and turquoise beads on the other shoulder. neither is visible under a short sleeved shirt.

    i have no problem with visible tats, unless they serve no purpose other than to offend as many people as possible (swastikas, gang designs, "white trash" across the knuckles, etc) then I think they are just stupid.

    I also don't get the whole idea behind tats on black people...especially dark skinned black people. WTF? you can barely see them most of the time.

    My two younger sons are black (adopted) the oldest is light skinned ( the kids on his soccer team call him "latte" ) and he says he wants inked. I told him that when he turned 16 he could do it...if he could talk his mother into it. the younger is much darker and thus far has shown no interest.

    And since I'm thinking of it...what the hell is with the whole "branding" thing as well? I have seen numerous black dudes with these big brands on their arms. personally I think they look pretty kool and badass but I would think that someone would bring up the whole slavery issue over it.

    the image of the "Tiajuana Gangster" tattoo across the ass comes to mind.

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.
    That's so sad!

    One of my husband's tattoos is in honor of his sister who died from a brain tumor - they never even knew she was sick. She just didn't wake up one day.

    I have a stupid cross on my ankle that I gave myself when I was 15. I've thought about getting it covered up, but obviously haven't thought too hard about it.

    I put off the elderly with my long hair and goatee.

    Some people shouldn't draw on themselves. Others I think it looks good. A lot of people do have meaning behind their tats.

    I know a guy who literally has "your name" tattooed on his ass just to win bar bets.

    Re: Correlation between tattoos and IQ

    The only thing I never got was the name tattoo - you know, some people tattoo *their own names* onto their selves.
    My ex did that - after we divorced.
    And then later I found my husband, now, did do that and eventually covered it up and never told me about it.

    His defense: It seemed cool at the time.

    But you can take bumper stickers off a whole lot easier than removing tattoos. I don't care for them myself, I find them horribly unattractive, but if someone wants to draw on themselves with permanent marker, more power to them. Actions have consequences, if they can deal with those consequences, it's fine with me.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
