Tattoos. Something we've never talked about. Do you have one? Do you wish you had one? Do you wish you didn't have one which you do have?

I don't have any and at this point I probably won't. About 20 years ago I came close to having an Indian bear design put on my right bicep -- I thought that would be cool. But somehow the moment passed and it didn't happen.

Sometimes I think that when tattoos began showing up on women they started to lose some of their 'macho luster' for me.

What do you guys think?

While I would never get a tattoo, I am fascinated by them on men. I find them a turn-off on women, but like seeing them on men very much. Some men certainly take it to the extreme, but I think a few nicely positioned and colored tattoos can be very attractive.

Guys be aware before you tatoo a character on your body.

I had a friend (with a big cock) in college wanted a tattoo that proclaimed his manliness, so he decided to get the Chinese characters for "strength" and "honor" on his chest. He emerged with the symbol for "small penis" embedded in his flesh.
It for months before he knew what it really meant,. While jogging through the campus and a group of Asian kids started laughing and calling me 'Shorty.'
