What will tattooed people do when the tattoo FAD ends (all fads do come to an end)
I live in Phoenix Arizona ( which must be the bad tattoo capital of the western USA ). Everyone seems to have not too great tattoos. I see tons of people with very amateur, crooked, and even misspelled low quality examples plastered all over their out of shape bodies.

At some point this fad will end, just like all other fads ( tongue piercings, eyebrow piercings, mulletts, hula hoops ) Once the fad is over there will just be a bunch of dopes with crappy looking embarrasing tatoos.

Is there a good way to invest in tatoo removal to financially cash in on all the lemmings with bad tatoos?

Tattoos have been popular since the 60s at least. If it is a 'fad' it's a hell of a long lasting one.

tattooing has been around for thousands of years. only problem is most people today lack style, or they get tattoos that fit a certain fad. the art of tattooing will probably not go out of style untill they find better ways of drawing on skin.

i think OP means the people who do it to fit in or be cool with their friends, it is a big fad right now, and it will burn off eventually

people will still get tattoos, always will. But the pop culture fad will fade eventually. everything goes in cycles

No, I am actually a non-conformist, so I wouldnt wear the crappy styles of clothes sold at malls, and as well I definitely wouldnt wear a crappy semi-permanent tattoo.

I just wanted to get a reading of what y'all think about tattoos.

I totally understand how someone could desire to get a tattoo, but it seems like most people get butt-ass ugly poorly executed, nasty looking ones (like all those hideous tramp stamps ), and IMHO probably most are people are getting them to follow the pack because its "cool"

None of mine are visible anyway, so even if I did give a fuck about the "fad" ending it would not affect my life one bit.

How come you only see the lower working class with tatoos? You never see a lawyer, engineer, upper management, doctors, etc., with tatoos. Just those who lives are controlled by the mass media.

I know 2 female docs with tats, one with a nose piercing, and a male neurosurgeon with tats, an earring, and long hair. Of course I do live in Illinois, I don't know if that's anything to do with it....? Our "upper-class" are all swingers and cokeheads. Not judging, just saying.

I started pondering that very question back in 1992.

Needless to say, fads can last a LOT longer than you think possible. I still see guys wearing pants where the waistband is slung halfway down their arse too. And it seemed that the whole wearing-spandex-as-pants had only just stopped only to start again with a vengeance.

And well, the people who couldn't afford to get good tattoos probably won't be able to get them removed properly either.

Me too. I had my reasons (still do). Some of them are 40+ years old. And you wouldn't know I had them (with the exception of two) as long as I had on as much as a regular t-shirt. They are for ME!

Yeah, I had a couple of them put on my upper biceps before it all became a fad too. Now that there are women all over the place with tattoos and kids running around with this crap scribbled all over their necks and legs and looking as if they've got some kind of skin disease I wouldn't demean myself by getting another tattoo.
