My first exposures to tattoos:

Popeye's anchor

Groucho Marx's "Lydia the Tattooed Lady"

Bradbury's Illustrated Man

I was always too pain-averse to even think of getting one myself.

I wouldn't want anything that permanent on my body.

They are addictive. While I only have a couple things on an arm, I am the exception among my friends... those who have any generally have many. The drummer I used to play with tattooed the soles of his feet.

I've already got permanent things on my body. They're just not colorful.

I have a friend who got a tattoo on her 80th birthday.
