I actually have a tattoo of the character that became my waifu. The art the tattoo was based off of and her character design are such that the tattoo doesn't look too unusual, and people didn't seem to react to it too strangely when I got the tattoo back then. Although I don't regret getting it, it was still a ridiculous thing to do, and I have one other tattoo that I regret immensely. I was at least sensible enough to get the tattoos in areas that are covered by a t-shirt, and no one has seen them in years.
I still like tattoos, and occasionally think that it'd be nice to have my regrettable one covered up with something that would at least be not as embarrassing in the future, but whatever.
I suppose I'm not surprised that most people here dislike tattoos, as they seem to be associated with things like slutty women and MMA douchebags these days.
