As a retired 30 year Navy man, I recall the good old days when only sailors, Hells Angels and convicts had tattoos. Nowadays even my female doctor has them. She congratulated me on the set of lips tatted on my posterior that i got in Hong Kong long ago, but told me she could'nt show me hers, no sense of adventure, I guess. The world has gone to heck in a hand basket.

Since Lucas Glover took a whole heap of crap just for growing a beard, I think a pro with tattoos would get some "constructive criticism" from some influential people (Nicklaus, Palmer, etc.)

You realize this is the equivalent of them going "hey, uh Tiger, you know you're black right? Might want to cover that up if you're going to play here."

It's 2012, the number of people with tattoos is ridiculous and to exclude someone because they have them is bigotry, nothing more.

I've got 5, all religious symbols, and all in places you'd never see them (Each shoulder, back, inner bicep up high, and trapezius). I like em, looking back I'd be ok either way, whether I'd gotten them or not, but also recognize that despite their mainstream appeal, they're still often seen as a drawback in the business world.

My guess is that some of this new "Tattoo Removal" technology that's not just laser related, will take off over the next few decades as all the Jersey Shore/Spring Breakers of the world head in to undo what they did so foolishly.

Tattoos are terrible life decisions :wave:
[/quote]

Opinions....everyone has one. But understand that you may be telling 15-20% of the people on this site that they made bad LIFE decisions. Including myself and my wife (who has a floral sleeve that she got at age 38 and she is getting ready to add onto it).

Please read the other post I made in this topic to gauge how serious or not serious I am. Specifically the photo I posted, and the first post on this page.

I have one full sleeve, one half sleeve, stomach and ribs done. I figured the waving emoticon was enough to show I was joking.

Ahh I missed it. Totally my bad!! Sorry - didn't catch the tongue in cheek.

Vice.com has a great series of documentaries in their video section on some of the best tattoo artists to ever live. Very personal and insightful views into several of the older and newer legends.

Vice.com and the videos about the tattoo artists are called Tattoo Age.

Iteach- check out the Epically Latered series too.

I have a Japanese style sleeve on my left arm going to my chest, It starts with a KOI during into a full dragon on my chest mixed with water, cherry blossoms etc, people don't really pay attention to it on-course which I find is nice. Here's a picture of me in Hawaii in 2011, cant see tattoo well but this is how I look golfing. :) PS - This was my first swing after a 5 month lay-off so my follow thru is a result of a terrible swing lol

And you live in a nice house....that's a cool painting on the wall in the second pic. Was that taken at the parlor?

The first pic is in our house, with the wood floors and doc marten boots in the background - the second pic was the parlor.

Tattoos are the height of fashion. Things go out of fashion. Looking like a gang member will be seen as naff in a few more years. Lots of work for plastic surgeons!!

I didn't think one could paint with as wide a stroke as you but you've managed to even exceed those lofty expectations...
