Would you tattoo a politician's image on your body?

Apparently, some people are doing that, and I have to say that I really don't get it. I love my wife a great deal, and I've had lovers that I have loved deeply as well. However, never once have I ever wanted to tattoo their name -- much less their visage -- anywhere on my body. So, please can someone explain to me why someone would get a tattoo of a politician?

10. These are the reason that blackout tattoos were invented. Sure, you end up with ink-colored skin

 

but you can cover up any dumb decisions without having to go through with removal.

You can always tattoo over them or get them removed.

If I was getting paid 500k or could use it to make 500k, I might.

Some young people don't understand that skin stretches and sags as years go by. Those tats won't just be irrelevent, they'll look hideous.

I could possibly understand a campaign logo for historic campaigns. No names or faces though.

No tattoos - not my kids' names, not any departed pet's paw prints, not our anniversary date, no flowers, shooting stars or butterflies. I can't even think of one I would want, even if i were so inclined.

to the poll. Actually I have an almost pathological aversion to needles of any kind, so I would never willingly get any tattoo.

I don't go outside this area though, because I try not to have any bad blood. Some of them may not make an effort to be civil, so it's best just to avoid them all.

30. I have several tattoos...

I get them to signify important moments in my life.

However I rarely see a tattoo of a person that doesn't look bizarre and creepy. I'll stick with my symbolic tattoos in locations that can be covered as needed.

32. yeah, if you can do good portrait tats, you get the big bucks.

lots of tat artists are artists in name only. they try to copy photos, but if you dont have the experience of drawing from life, you really cant get it right.

Artistically speaking it's well designed and colored.

I've seen some fantastic portrait tattoos in magazines, but any that I've seen in person has been cringe-worthy.

45. Same here. Whoever did that one actually has some considerable talent.

Still wouldn't ink up my skin for it, but I like the details that went into it. It's not overly done with too many shadows to cover up mistakes or too many details in things like the hair. Reminds me a bit of Manga.

maybe the logo, not so much his face. i worked hard to get him elected, and i am proud of what he has accomplished.
but someone who is just a candidate? no way.
