This isn't 1950s USA nor prl Poland.
Yes, in communist Poland it was a direct sign sb did time in jail or belonged to a subculture called gitowcy (sort of hooligans and petty criminals) or sometimes was a sailor. Communist system collapsed in 1989. People become conscious of the world around them when they are about 15. A person who was 15 in 1989 is 45 today. It means that the whole generation, 45-65 and later , may tend to view tattoos as sth suspicious.
Besides, whenever I see all those fatty ugly midget soy boys who are unable to impress other people with anything: e..g, natural good looks, money, education, intelligence, property so they get a tattoo as the last resort - I just wanna laugh out loudly. And again I become suspicious - what kind of loser is he or she that they got a tattoo? :):):)
There's plenty of decent sane family types w tats especially in poland now
OK, times may have changed or you are the younger generation born around 1989 or later.
If you are so convinced, I won`t argue. :)
