I don't mind when people compliment me on mine, but it's annoying when they ask me to explain
them. A lot of people assume that all tattoos have some very cryptic or personal meaning. Personally, I find all that "deep, inner meaning" stuff associated with tattoos to be a bit goofy.
Back to the original topic, like it or not, tattoos do make a statement and they do correlate with fashion and style. I have to take them into consideration when choosing an outfit, whether or not it is an appropriate occasion to leave them visible.
My girl hasn't shitcanned me yet, but faggots do shun me occasionally!
