“Im confident that in my lifetime, it will never be said of a woman, You know, shes cute and all...but shed be totally H O T hot if only she had tattoos....”
True, you’d never see the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue with a tatoos.
I’ve worked with 2 people with tatoos (that I could see). The first guy was really nice, but then I saw the tatoos when he had short sleeves. So I figured he was an a-hole. It wound up that he was really nice - but tatoos affect perceptions. The second was a babe - who husband then was murdered. As far as I was concerned, the tatoo told me what kind of people she hung out with.
Based on your post the issue is yours, you assumed these people where beneath you because they had ink.
