Quote from: stromboli on July 14, 2016, 09:40:42 AMDon't personally have any because I never have been motivated enough to get one. All my children have them, all 3 atheists. Was in the Navy for 4 years and walked past many tattoo parlors, just never that interested. Have fun if that is your thing.
Quote from: Bluewind on April 13, 2016, 02:05:35 AMIf you had the option right now to get a permanent mark on your body (easily hidden spot or very public area) showing that you are an Atheist, Agnostic, Humanist, or other type of non-theist, would you do it? Before you think about the pain and such, in this hypothetical situation the tattoo would be painless, instant, well designed to your taste, free, and can never be removed for the rest of your life.
QuoteFollow up questions1. What is your opinion and reaction to those who get real world tattoos symbolizing that they are not theists and of the images themselves?
Quote2. Would it be dangerous for those like us to have a visible tattoo showing their beliefs?
Quote3. Is it hypocritical and/or wrong for people to get religious tattoos (which is a very popular subject for tattoos) if their holy text says it's wrong or a sin if it's done to show their faith?
QuoteEvery tattoo, regardless of content, conveys the exact same message to me. They all say 'I make poor life choices and I don't care who knows it'.

QuoteTBH, I don't think they add anything to a person that can't be overcome with some psychology, or confidence, however this is not the argument.
