What I can't figure is why ANYONE bothers to get a tattoo.

Self expression .... I have three!
Mine are very subtle, they are silhouettes of dragons done in solid bright colours. Black looks harsh against my pale skin.

They just want to fit in with the crowd plus probably it's a gang-related deal...

Living with black people on my street has made me that way. A perfectly good sidewalk but they are in the street or walking through yards. Not just a foot away from the sidewalk but 15 to 20 feet. Care to enlighten me Pete?

Some look good especially those with a lighter complexion, those with dark complexion a lil less visible but still can be attractive

Tattoos for any race is a reflection of low self-esteem. These people do not get the attention they feel is warranted, so they tattoo themselves to gain recognition. Also like somebody said, for blacks it is often a gang ritual. They are an interesting species.

Did BoB spit chocolate at her when she asked that?

Lol...thank you Doctor Phil.

LeBron James, arguably one of the best professional basketball players of all time has tattoos. Many black college fraternaties issue tattoos and brands. I have mine covered most of the time - so no, it's not about recognition or gangs - you couldn't be farther from the truth. Just because gang members have tattos, doesn't mean all tattoo owners are gang members. Using that analogy, it's like me saying anyone named Linda Bledsoe is a worthless hooker.

Tell your brother Drew he was a bum.

I just knew that anyone with that much reasoning and common sense would have to be from Ohio, you see I was born in Cincinnati!

Yeah, it's becomming a disturbing pattern lately - idiots from Ohio telling each other they have "that much reasoning and common sense."
