    Yes, that was very considerate of you. If I'm not mistaken I think that's about all BP and maybe others are asking for concerning this particular topic.

    Anyway, I can't think of many topics that are worth arguing online for. It's tiring and tedious to me. It's not worth it, and as far as I can tell no one has ever succeeded in convincing the other party on any subject. It simply never gets anybody anywhere. So I'm bowing out of this one.

    BP has made it very clear to me that he does not like me. Crystal clear in fact.

    I said before, this is a topic "I feel strongly about." The chances of me being silent on something "I feel strongly about" are slim and none. I feel strongly about religion. But it is not allowed as a topic here, therefore I will not discuss it. I feel strongly about what my state is going through right now. But that is political and has no place here.

    If you guys want me to shut up about tattoos and soccer it is real easy to accomplish. Make those topics forbidden on this forum. I will abide by the rules and I won't ever say a peep about them again.

    I am not speaking out against tattoos to change anyone's mind unless they ask if they should get one. At that point I will do my damnedest to talk them out of it. If they go ahead and get one it is their right. My brothers have tattoos. Many of my best friends do too. Holy crap man, I'm a biker. Do you think I haven't seen tats all over some of my biker buddies? It doesn't change how I feel about any of them.

    Do I "preach" to them? Yes, if the subject is opened, I damned sure do. Like I said, "I feel strongly about it." I am very aware it is a cultural thing in our country now. Note I did not say racial, because it isn't. The current generation is a culture regardless of race. I do not get it. It is my right to be dense to the attraction of this.

    I did not piss on the OPs tattoo. It's his. It's his body. I applaud what he is going through as a single Dad. He said he will never be in trouble because of that. I applaud him for that whether he has a tattoo or never got one. His tattoo would never color me into liking him or disliking him. Pity the same can not be said about people having differing opinions, and I do not necessarily mean you.

    Just making a joke out of a commercial that was made a few years ago... a guy walked into his team's locker room with a giant Lions logo tattooed on his back saying, "hey guy's, check out my new tattoo!" A few seconds later, a coach walks by and says, "sorry kid, your've been traded to the Bears" (or something like that). Funny.

    Congrats on the ink. I hope you enjoy it.

    Just an FYI, I never meant this thread to take the turn that it did. I posted this just to show my love for the Cowboys, not to get into a diatribe on whether tattoos or good or bad, whether people should get them. I always say to each his own. If something is not affecting me, then why should I get all hot and bothered about it.

    Personally, I have never really liked tattoos. I never wanted one. I am 35 years old, and my girl has them (not real keen on them, but again, not my place to judge). She's a great person, we talked in depth about it, and I decided to get one to honor the team I have followed since I was 4.

    When I got it, I knew I was happy with the decision. I don't mind people thinking it was a DUMB thing to do, and I appreciate those that like it. Either way, not a big deal.

    But my apologies, had I known this thread would have turned into a flame war, I never would have posted it. Just really excited to share my love of the Cowboys with this site.

    Thanks again for everyone that responded about the tattoo, thank you.

    Not your fault at all. You have nothing to apologize for and you did nothing wrong. :starspin

    You didn't do anything wrong, so don't sweat it at all. Controversial things bring out opinions. No big deal.

    You don't have anything to apologize for, if anything i should be one of the ones to apologize to you for derailing your thread from its intended purpose. I should have known better than to say anything to begin with. I apologized to Hos when i contributed to ruining his thread sometime ago (the one he can't remember) and i apologize to you now as well.

    When i get time i will take a picture of my tattoo and post it here. Maybe this can turn into a thread about tattoos.

    :eek:

    I need my pills in one piece, or rather two. I would like to make at least one more just like him, preferably one with longer hair and different plumbings. :)

    I thought you were trying to imply that somehow a tattoo makes you a criminal or vice versa. I did not doubt what you said.

    I think a lot of people stereotype people w/ tattoos. And having many myself, that really pisses me off.

    Absolutely not.

    Everyone gets stereotyped. I have been for not liking tattoos. Welcome to the real world where other people have opinions about you no matter what you say, do, or dress like.

    Wow. I'm honestly shocked, i mean completely shocked, to find out that Hos feels very strongly about being against tattoos.
