Not really. At the same time, I have never encountered crime in my life either...well, except that time in Cote D'azure (Southern France). Ok ok, In southern Spain too. Other than that, I don't know what crime is.

Respectfully, your questions doesn't mean anything. It's like asking "have you been bitten by somebody with a golden tooth"

Hope that makes sense (it probably won't ).

I think what jdt360 is getting at is if there was some external influence on your life that gives you such a negative view of body art. Prejudices are often a taught reaction, either from parents or through some kind of traumatic experience. In my case, my early prejudice against tattoos were merely an echoing of what I heard from my mother and grandmother. It wasn't until I started researching the subject that I realized my prejudices were completely off the mark.

That's a very interesting point, T2D.

Come to think of it, all negative "reactions" are taught ones. For example, not to play with fire, not to mess around with electricity, and such.

That's not true.

You could learn not to play with fire/electricity by watching someone else get burned/shocked (vicarious learning), by direct personal experience, or perhaps by reading about it, etc.

I'm losing track here. Reading, watching and experimentation are all learning tools.

Aside from that, let's not dilute the fact that many of our radical prejudices are passed down from parent to child. For example, children are not born racially prejudicial to one race or another. Go to any early learning center and watch children interact with each other for proof. I'm also sure there are studies on the subject somewhere. That's how most prejudices about tattoos arise as well. That whole mentality of tattoos being for bikers, convicts and military men still persists. It can't be any further from the truth than SLR cameras are only for the pros.

I'm with T2D. I will also add social norms, which T2D alluded to. But before I explain, please keep in mind that I'm not in the US of A, so our social references might be different.

In any case...

Where I'm from, and I hate to say this, only people in the lowest so-called "social ladder" sport a tattoo.



Edit: Hmm, I thought T2D is from the UK. Must have confused him with somebody else. Sorry about that.

Apologies if my questions don't seem to make sense. I'm trying to understand where your opinions come from.
As I understand it, there are middle eastern countries where religious influence may predispose people to their opinions against tattoos.
When I realized this, I tried to think outside my world and understand your comments. Cultural differences make the most sense.
To be clear, I certainly respect cultural differences and opinions that are formed based on them.
