Why You Should Never, EVER Get a Tattoo!

Tattoos are definitely not something you would consider real beauty. They used to be considered something trashy that only outcasts would get, or rebels from culture, like sailors and prisoners.

Today it seems like almost every celebrity has at least one tattoo. Some have many. Often they have the overused ‘star’ somewhere on their body, or a poem of some sort or a Chinese symbol.

In my opinion, tattoos look trashy. I wonder how a beautiful celebrity could alter their naturally beautiful body that God blessed them with. Most often, people regret their tattoos later on in life. Megan Fox certainly looks as if she did. You can see that she’s getting the tattoo of Marilyn Monroe removed from her forearm (if you check out her modeling shots, she often creatively covers the tattoo with something).

If celebrities don’t get their tattoos removed, the tattoos fade so they look twice as bad and must get redone.

Classic women like Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe would never have dreamed of getting a tattoo, and I find it a bit odd that Megan Fox would get one of Marilyn Monroe. If you look closely, you see that the tattoo is a bit cheesy. No wonder she’s trying to remove it (a long and painful process!).

Learn from their mistakes. Please don’t alter your body to get a tattoo that will last forever, when most people change their minds or feel differently about it once they mature.

Just Google “old people with tattoos,” and that might sway you from ever getting one. Here are a few pictures of celebrities with various tattoos, the first series is the infamous star tattoo they all get:

Avril Lavigne also has this disgusting tattoo on her ribs! Who puts a cuss word permanently on their body? It’s so trashy!

And now a few celebrities are getting the word “SHH” tattoo’d on their finger because apparently they think it’s cute:

And the most heartbreaking of them all is Angelina Jolie’s tattoos: I wish she didn’t destroy her beautiful body with them!

What do you think of tattoos? Are you going to get one? Learn from these celebs’ mistakes, and don’t! In the long run, you’ll be grateful that you kept your body tattoo-free.

    Do what you want. You define your own beauty. Don’t let archaic rules get you down, man. Tattoos are different choices for everyone.

    I’m not exactly a tattoo person, but I have a friend who got a beautiful cross in a perfectly modest place as a reminder of her faith. Sure it might not look great when she’s old, but I’d hardly call it trashy or anything like that.?

    Oh, and I noticed your little poll doesn’t have an option for “I have a tattoo” or “I love them and I’m getting one”. We love you anyway, but wow, Nicole.

    I think it depends on the tattoo and the meaning behind it. I completely agree that getting a curse word tattooed onto one’s body is dirty and wrong but I’m not sure how I feel about a meaningful tattoo. I guess Id rather get a significant piece of jewelry or something to make a statement rather than a tattoo. I’m not sure

    Badly done. I agree that people often regret getting tattoos and that they can get seriously nasty when people get old, and I would never get one. But it’s not right to make the generalization that all tattoos are trashy or rebellious. That is almost purely a cultural idea. An old one that has passed. When I saw the title for this article I thought you were either joking or had some actual biblical insights I hadn’t known about before. I agree with the other comments; I know there are plenty of Christians with tattoos and there are many verses, crosses etc. that are very nice and can lead to evangelism. I think the only real issue with tattoos is whether or not they are appropriate (placement on a person’s body, language, message, imagery). I don’t like make-up, won’t wear it, think other people are better off without it because God made us look the way we are. But there is nothing in the Bible against it so I have no right or reason to tell people it is wrong. Same for tattoos. It is a personal choice. A better article perhaps would warn of the permanence and how tattoos get distorted and people change their minds, like yours does, but leave off the judgment. Perhaps encourage henna as an alternative.

    This article actually makes me want to stop using this site…this is so sad. Some of the most godly people I know (men and women) are covered in tattoos. I have several, including the word “forgiven” with a cross next to it on the inside of my left arm. My tattoos have actually helped me reach more people for Christ, because they see them and ask what they mean. My other ones represent different struggles I have gone through that God has helped me with…and I just read an article on a Christian website that tells me I look trashy and disgusting. Thinking of deleting my profile now.

      I’m sorry. :( Honestly, I think Nicole has changed a lot from when she first started this site (this article was written in 2011). I mean, if you look at a ton of the older posts from 2011-2012, she seems really judgmental and not really the same person she is now. :/ I think that honestly, if you asked her her thoughts on them today, she would have a different answer. I am sorry your offended…Please don’t be though! I agree with you, lots of pastors at my church and tons of other people I know have tattoos that represent different things about their faith! :)

    I don’t know if I want to continue coming to this site after reading this article. Calling celebrities “trashy” because of how they look?! Is this really the judging view you want the young girls on this site to have about people? Everyone is beautiful even if they have a star on their wrist or a word on their back. You’re teaching girls to judge people and label them as “trashy” and “disgusting” because of a tattoo. That’s not right

      I’m sorry. I agree with you’ll, lots of pastors at my church and lots of other people I know have tattoos that represent something about their faith! I honestly agree that the article sounds judgmental, but I can promise you that Nicole really isn’t anything like that! I know that Nicole (and anyone else on PI) wouldn’t mean to hurt/offend/judge anyone. I mean, I understand if your feelings aren’t change since it DID unintentionally offend you, but I don’t want want you to go away with a complete wrong idea about Nicole and/or PI.
