It's become a generational thing Bama.
I've know some old ladies(Old as in age) that had some small tats but they were rare and most had checkered pasts of some sort.
Plus, as my grandfather was a judge we went by the collar and cuffs code. If you had to go to court you could wear a long sleeve shirt and tie to cover them all up.
I read an interesting article that was of the opinion that people didn't get tats to make themselves more attractive, but to make them selves stand out from the crowd.
I think there is a truth in that.
And... No monkey for me. Thank you.
