Tattoos - how do you feel about them?

I just came across a series of photos of a few tattoos on women which I'll share here. They are pretty amazing in different ways.
I am not a big fan of tattoos, though I have become more accepting of them - seeing as there are so many to be seen these days! Then again, some are so beautiful...pure works of art and to be appreciated in their own right. But it's just sometimes still hard for me to accept seeing them adorning a body...though it clearly is a kind of personal expression for the persons involved who have them.
My DD is the only one of our children who have fully embraced having tattoos. My three sons have not, although DS2 has at times expressed interest in getting an Escher drawing tattooed on his calf or calves...but never has saved or put out the money to do so. Also his legs are pretty hairy, so I wonder if that would kind of interfere with the look of the tattoo? My DD has a feather tattooed on the back of her right upper arm. And on this same arm but on the inside upper arm (well, visible as when she lifts her arm up) is a very well drawn picture of a C.P.R. steam locomotive. She did this 'for her father' (though Ray was quite shocked to see it...not sure he loves it, but he is a steam locomotive buff). She chose something that is his great hobby and interest. She was wondering what she'd put on her body for me? I told her if she wants she can choose one of my cartoons, but to keep it small (well, most of my cartoon drawings are small!). She's not gone ahead to do this...and I assume she might want to ask me which cartoon I might want? But we've not had that discussion.
She has one more tattoo that no one hardly sees. It's on her torso - to the side...quite large and a kind of valentine drawing, but not a 'pretty' one...It is supposed to be taken from some band logo (?)...not sure about that really, but it's large and I was shocked to see it when I first did...it was her first tattoo and I didn't think it looked nice. But she doesn't wear bikinis, and so only certain persons (ahem) will ever see this tattoo. I don't think she likes it much now...but not that she's ever said so much. I can only guess but at least it's not a visible one!
Do any of your children have tattoos? Do you like this sort of thing or just have come to accept it as what's "in" these days? Do YOU have a tattoo?
