I know i know, i haven't been very active lately :) I've been quite busy, plus often away from the internet, plus i rarely get involved in most of the threads (like your convo's) cos i don't really feel comfortable in a crowd :)

Hopefully the internet connection complications'll get settled by october!

thats what i thought, all my tattos are hidden well apart from the little one on the wrist but its nothing scary and i didnt understand when he said this to sarah and when i had my mummy tattoo done a few weeks ago he just looked at it and pulled a face like it was some hugh tattoo which it is not.

he said to me "why do you english women like tattoos so much" why not like you said shelley as long as tehre are not hugh scary tattoos i dont see the prob x

I dont know how it is now but in general I remember that in Poland tatoos had usually prisoners and sailors. They were thought to be rough.

I noticed that they are very popular in UK.

Again differences in our culture I suppose.

Shelley is rhight little tatoo in right place is sexy- just not too much and not too big.

When I first came to Poland, people sometimes used to stare at me. When I asked the family why this was, they said it was because I had a tattoo and earrings, which were associated with prisoners.

Within a few years it seemed everyone, male and female, had them.

The lads don't seem to be wearing earrings so much these days but tattooes are still popular.

I've noticed a lot of young women have a design on the lower back, just above the waistline.

If it feels right. Do it.

I don't mind tattoos on women but, it needs to be something different. The majority of tattoos these days are all on the lower back right above the ass. Something different is always nice. I'm also tired of seeing all of these belly rings. Too many people fall into this fad.

How about a pierced tounge? How do you eat pierogi with that?

The difference with earrings and tats is that you can take the meta out, ink is more difficult though.

I dont know how it is now but in general I remember that in Poland tatoos had usually prisoners and sailors.

Where are you from?! I have never met a sailor or a prisoner, but a lot of people with tatoos who just like the idea, from reggae fans to "perfectly correct citizens" who are relaxed enough to dare be different from the crowd.

bossie,

I was trying to make the point that women are still getting tattooes :)

The prisoner thing that Iwona and I mentioned is surely correct. I've heard it more than once. I was talking about a period sixteen years ago and a stereotype that existed before then. :)

I have a tattoo on my left arm and I see nothing wrong or vulgar in it. And nobody has ever made any negative comments about it except from one street preacher :)

I am from Krakow and it is how it was ( I don't know if it isnow ...) there. Maybe it has changed but to be honest I was there 2 weeks ago and didn't see as many people with tatoos like in England.

But I think it is fashion maybe in next 10 years they will be no more fashionable in England but starts to be popular in Poland.

I suppose I dind't meet many reggae fans even I quite like reggaae

Thank you for all you views - i have a few meaning full tattoos which are mainly covered all of the time - i choose places that no would see when i am old and would be easy to cover.

This one polish man has used his views to make it seem as though all polish men do not like them - he said you english women are mad and they are horrible and normally uses a screwed up face expression

He has a tattoo from the army so maybe that is a reason??? :)

The older generation of polish people link tatoos to wartime concentration camps also

lots of bad memories and people were marked for life.......

I think moderated tatoos are ok on women. However, how shrivelled and horrid will they look after too many
years of hard living?
Maybe a "This Way Up ^ " tatoo would be great ;P
