Narrow Minded ignorance...Honestly... why? Stupidity, what a load of meaningless shite I love people who come on to the forum, why on earth would they post second rate posts and ruin the forum that's already there? When people say "Ink...Honestly...Why?" when they actually mean I'm ignorant to modern and social times and make myself look like a fool by posting my idiotic and narrow minded posts. Aghhhhhh

I wont shoot models with tatoos. I sell my work overseas, tatooed models are useless.

Tattooed models make just as nice a cup of tea as other models.

Totally agree - why deface the beautiful, natural skin you were born with to keep some second rate 'artist' in business? I think a lot of this 'fashion' craze is about following the mindless celebrity set - Beckham, Cheryl Cole etc. There are 14 tattoo parlours in my town and the streets are becoming full of young girls sporting ugly ink.

The thing they don't consider is that when past their fifties and their skin and body shapes change the tattoos become even more hideous and ugly over time. And - these things aren't cheap and are in my mind a sad reflection of one's social standing and intelligence. On the whole we don't see many 'professional' people sporting these things - doctors, lawyers etc. or let's face it, royalty (ok there will be exceptions to the rule of course but I'm generalising here.)

As a photographer I tend not to approach any of the models on PS who have tattoos - and am often disappointed when a pretty girl with lots of potential then comes up defaced with them. I wonder how much 'work' they potentially lose??

End of my rant....

Or even how much work they gain? If you look at sites like Suiide Girls and magazines like Front or Bizarre they favour inked models.
I don't favour models with or without tattoos. I would say that probably 80% of models on this site have a tattoo, so to rule out working with tattooed models is a great mistake and you are missing out on some amazing talent.
Models get tattooed because it's their personal choice and body.

Why not let other people live their lives and you live yours? Tattoos are a personal choice, they're not there to make you happy or offend you, they're there because that person wants them there. What gives anyone the right to pass judgement on someone else's choices?

Totally agree.

I dont have tattoo's dont think they are right for me however I like shooting models with tattoo's, I also like shooting models without tattoo's.

Their choice and if it looks good dont see the issue.

As your tattoos are personal thing and you are happy with them, why do you get upset that other people don't like tattoos? I don't think having a tattoo is the same as cutting your hair! Obviously the original poster is not really worth a reply, but just as you are free to have tattoos of your choice and love or hate other peoples' tattoos, so are other people free to dislike tattoos in general or specific tattoos. On a site devoted to modelling, where looks are such an important factor, it is no surprise that people should express views on their keenness (or otherwise) to work with tattooed models. Personally there are models that I would have liked to work with but didn't like their tattoos, on the other hand I have worked with many models with small tattoos and several with more prominent works. I can't recall ever working with anyone specifically because of their tattoos, but I have certainly found some objectionable enough to stop me booking a model.

Oh my goodness me, this kind of attitude sucks!!

Its personal preference, people have tattoos for all different reasons, and coming on a forum like this and slagging people off because they have ink is disgraceful and you should be ashamed!!

As for calling tattooed models useless, your attitude is totally disgusting!!!
