    For me this is easy issue. Anyone can have them; none of business of mine.

    But my bf/husband will never have one. So this is one kind of game breaker. My life => my rules.

    Many leftists are more trustworthy than Christians (and left-wing Christians are far more trustworthy too, because their political views are consistent with Christianity's globalist nature). At least a lot of lefties are honest with themselves, which right wing Christians aren't.

    SpearBrave has done nothing wrong. We don't need to be censored and told to "keep it civil" by false patriots who worship non-European deities. It's a free country.

    How objective...Germanic, like all others of Indo-European origin, save the Indo-Iranians, come in two eras of faith: BC and AD. Maybe if we can understand why Indians never converted, it can shed light on our ancestral religious beliefs in Christianity. Yes, Christianity is ancestral for all of us here at Skadi. We all have thousands of ancestors who believed in Christ and some even died or killed others in His Name. I take it as just another stage of belief from before. Doubtlessly, our ancestors believed in something completely unrecognizable before the classical mythology it has become since Christianity. We may develop something else in the future. I take the long view in stride.

    Regardless, none of this has anything to do with tattoos. Straw man attacks ought to stop. There's not supposed to be infighting between pagans and Christians on Skadi. There may be disputes about the right paths within paganism and within Christianity, but let's leave the feuds immediately before the Crusades back in the past. Jews and Muslims are fair game. Atheism and agnosticism are personal struggles more than social movements.

    Tattoos need to be done tastefully and then I'm alright with them. I myself would never have one. Some women still are pretty even heavily tattooed ones, regardless. So it all depends.

    Too many women have tattoos and for all the wrong reasons. It's become a trend, and these days it does normally look ugly. You could say the same thing about hairstyles or clothing fashion though - the problem is the idiots that have them and seem intent on looking as ridiculous and un-presentable as possible, not the art of tattooing itself. It can be tasteful, it can be traditional, and it's been in Europe since prehistoric times. I wouldn't claim it was ever the norm, and I get annoyed by modern attempts at Viking films that show them all with punky haircuts and tattoos just because they might have had tattoos (this assumption is based purely on one Arab historian's account of the Rus tribe). We do however see evidence with Otzi the iceman, and Scythian remains show some particularly good examples of traditional European tattoos. It is also possible that the picts had tattoos (or they could have just used warpaint a lot, as the word "pict" suggests)

    “Individuals trapped in a dying culture live in a twilight world. They embrace death through infertility, concupiscence, and war. A dog will crawl into a hole to die. The members of sick cultures do not do anything quite so dramatic, but they cease to have children, dull their senses with alcohol and drugs, become despondent, and too frequently do away with themselves. Or they make war on the perceived source of their humiliation.”
    — David P. Goldman, as quoted by Jack Donovan in The Way of Men.

    I think they look good on people, but it depends.

    Honestly, generally I'm turned on by people with tattoos, I like to see them, but sometimes I like them, sometimes not, it depends.

    I wanted to do some on my skin too, but I didn't in the end... Now I'm glad I didn't, for some personal reasons. I also know a very sweet and wonderful lady who has just one good looking little tattoo, and she had some serious problems with it, and she regretted doing it.

    However, at this point I'm not thinking to have one anymore. I don't see the point, at least for me. I like my skin as it is, with no tattoos on it...

    But I won't refuse to be with someone just because they have tattoos, no way. I still think they are nice to have, if you already have them. But I'm not for having more, to be honest... Well, I have friends who still do it, or want to have more, but it's their own business, they are free to do as they like to.

    Yes, I like both men and women with tattoos, especially if they have some meanings, or some heathen symbolism.
    Die Farben duften frisch und grün... Lieblich haucht der Wind um mich.

    Sorry I voted the wrong thing.
    I think tattoos look great on men and some on women. I must've been tired for misreading the lines.

    This sums up what I believe, too, Finnish Swede. I've never had any desire for a tattoo, but others can obviously do as they wish.
