Things Tattooed People Are Tired of Hearing

Does your pet peeve make the list?

Lay off.

Yes, I have tattoos. No, you cannot touch them.

There are only a few things more annoying than being interrupted mid-conversation by a stranger grabbing my hand in order to get a better look at the quote tattooed on my arm. If you have any visible tattoos you probably know where this situation is headed: Why did you get that quote? What’s the meaning behind it? Did it hurt? It’s casual moments like this of total boundary disregard that can make you feel more like an art gallery or spectacle than an actual person. If you don’t know me, don’t interrogate me with personal questions I’ve already been asked a hundred times and still don’t wish to answer.

How will you hide them when you want to dress up formally/for your wedding?

I actually like shopping for clothes that will accentuate my tattoos, especially if I get the chance to dress nicely. If I have them, why would I want to cover them up?

Are you addicted to getting tattooed?

No. I’m a collector.
