Im a guy with a lot of tattoos and while i dont have to defend the art and i dont mind if people hate them i do find the "what will it look like in 30 years time" comments to be a bit silly. No one looks like they did 30 years ago.
Thank goodness. If I look at my wedding photos from 1978 I look a complete tit!
Luckily, my hair style and the suit I was wearing weren't permanent features and they've changed with the times.
Fashions change. Tattoos are a fashion, but they're permanent.
