That's horrible Angel! I had someone grab my arm to look at mine at the weekend in the pub. They didn't say anything negative but I do object tp beinf grabbed and stroked. Do others with tatts get this? Strangers just touching your tattoos as though their not realising their touching another human being without permission?

On this particular day I was wearing creepers and a black fifties 'summer' dress, hair up in a bun with a flower in it and a bit of liner and mascara.
I was on the shop floor spritzing myself with some fragrance when I noticed the customer near to me sneeze, I apologised saying that it might have been my spraying perfume that had made her sneeze when she snarlingly stated 'I can't abide looking at you with (points at my arms) all those tattoos'
To say I was stunned was an understatement.

I've had comments about them before, often positive, occasionally negative (won't you regret them when your older etc) but I'd never experienced such vitriol before.

Hey Look that's not acceptable. Its YOUR body, so you can do as you please with it, my only proviso is that what ever you do doesn't hurt anyone else!

Whilst I might not approve (and I'm not saying I do or don't) Its not my place, nor anyone else's to pass gratuitous comments about you, your dress, your tattoos or anything else, that's just plain rude.

I have this running commentary in my mind complaining about life, the Universe and Everything!

AngelJezebel, tattoos are art and a form of self expression. Sadly many people can't see this, and unfortunately some people feel they have the right to may other people feel small because they don't agree with a particular form of expression. It must have been awful having someone speak to you like that, and I bet you looked as cute as. Don't let their poison bring you down.
