How much do you value skin without tattoos?

Now, more than ever, non-tatooted skin is very hard to find. Now, more than ever, teenagers and adults alike are going to home scratchers or tattoo shops and getting tattoos. I even as a tattoo artist value the idea of virgin skin. Thoughts?

Virgin skin in terms of not having any tattoos? I guess it is hard to find nowadays.

Don't have any tats myself. I figured my freckles are enough ornamentation for me. Never considered it a commodity or virtue.

I don't have any tattoos but I don't think it matters either way. It's their own skin, let them do what they want with it.

I think it's great that more and more people from all walks of life are starting to get tattooed. It can be truly beautiful and is a great way to honor someone or show beautiful pieces of art. I have nothing bad to say about someone that chooses not to get tattooed, but am pleased to see how many people are now. Hopefully someday it will be completely socially acceptable and my husband won't have to wear gloves and a scarf while he's working!

What an odd term - virgin skin? We don't have any Tats - but there isn't anything virgin about my 58 year old skin.

I personally wouldn't get tats until I've actually lived through something worth putting a mark on my skin about.

You say "now, more than ever, virgin skin is very hard to find.." Numer one: it makes it sound like it's a product that can be bought. LOL. I thought it was at first.

I say who cares? Why is it so important? Really. It's just people expressing themselves. I have a lower-back tattoo and am perfectly fine with it. It's not like different skin has different value and it'd be so petty to care if someone had tats or not. Just my crazed opinion though.

Can I ask you a question now. Why do you "value the idea of "virgin skin?" I'm just curious. I could not care less. I couldn't tell you how many of my friends have tattoos and how many don't. It's that unimportant to me. It's personal, to me anyways. My tattoo is just something personal to me & the reasons behind it are too, so it's not a case of show. It is for some people though.

I can't say I love the look of a variety of little symbols all over skin. I wouldn't do that, but some tattoos are truly remarkable and breath taking. It's not that different from a drawing hanging on your home's wall.

It's just not something I see as an issue, concern or any kind of deciding factor on what person/skin is more or less of value.

I don't consider it precious, but I see plenty of "virgin skin" in all age brackets. I don't think we're anywhere close to having a majority of people with some type of tattoo.

Not very. I love tattoos and plan on getting many more.

I regret most of my tattoos. I would kill for virgin skin again.

I have two tattoos at the moment and have drawn up a third. Waiting for the chance to get it, and then it won't be too long before I want a 4th.

I'm not picky either way as far as whether someone is tattooed or not.

Well said. I would say I value 'non-tattooed' (rather than virgin) skin because I like the natural scars I have and will acquire in life, as well as natural body marks (moles, etc.).

Having said that, I could see myself getting a tattoo at some point if I can find a symbolic visual that I could be content with for the rest of my life. Right now I am leaning towards a small, black uppercase delta.

GONE! GONE!
I have none currently. I don't feel too special for it. Does this mean a tattoo artist might give me special treatment or something for being a skin virgin cuz' I would love that...

I had two tattoos done years ago, when I was a rebellious teenager. I do regret them . I am hoping to laser them off one day, but it is quite expensive.

I have one tattoo. Everyone I've been in a "longterm" relationship with has had at least one tattoo. I personally like them. However, I don't "value" the idea of having a tattoo. Nor do I "value" the idea of skin without tattoos. I think both are beautiful.

Is your husband a fireman or policeman? I have had a few discussions with people about that exact thing. Is anyone going to care "really" when it comes down to the line and the person who is saving your life has tattoos? I think not! Many fireman have there station numbers and logos tattooed on them selves. I think it is just sad.

I don't have any tattoos and have no intention of ever getting one. I don't consider my skin special because of it though. It's just my personal preference.
