Would you get a company or brand tattoo?

Tattoo's certainly appear to have become more accepted.

I can cite one person I know that regretted having the tattoos done: That's the risk he took. Whether a brand, logo, a loved one, or that there are fashion changes, you've got that tattoo without major costs to remove it.

Do you love a company so much that you would get a tattoo of its logo? And what would that say about you and the firm in question?Would you get a company or brand tattoo? [bbc.co.uk]


Some brands are probably safer than others, or even don't give away that it's a business. Would that be acceptable?

I might wear a brand on a T-shirt but certainly not on my flesh!

Tattoos and body piercings are the two most disturbing trends amongst the younger generation. They all look pretty ugly and in their endless search for originality everyone ends up looking the same.

Don't they think of the consequences when they get old and saggy? David Beckham will end up having his children's name tattoos dropping onto his saggy backside, and most name tattoos will become unreadable.

Tattoos are particularly favoured by professional football players (I mean football as it is known outside of the USA). This has gone so far that many of them when wearing a short sleeve shirt look like they have a sweater on underneath it.

So people who are daft enough to despoil their bodies with this permanent graffiti might as well have a famous brand name tattooed on their forehead, it is only one further very small step towards looking completely ridiculous.

A brand tattoo sounds dangerous...

What happens if you are an aspiring soccer (sorry- futbol) player and sign a major endorsement deal with a sponsor. You are so grateful that you get a tattoo on your arm.

You rise in popularity and qualify for the national team- you're headed for the World Cup! Uh, oh- your sponsor is no longer an official FIFA sponsor and FIFA doesn't like that!

When one of my sons was in his early teens we were talking about fashions and tastes and I made the comment that if he was feeling adventurous I'd rather see him experimenting with weird hair than with tattoos.

He looked at me with a mixture of pity and amusement and said, "Mom, you don't experiment with a tattoo."

FIFA doesn't like that


Anyone considering a tattoo should ponder the concept of "future proofing". :)

No.

I wish tattoo shops showed images of old folks' tattoos that are 3-4 decades old. I think it would make many people think twice. I'm not against tattoos, but you better think long and hard about what you want to put on your body permanently. And know that it won't look the same when you're older.
