      I managed to make it out of army basic training without getting a tattoo. But several of my classmates got tattoos in the final days after we had graduated and before we got our assignment. Those days there was nothing to do, we finally had freedom to roam the fort, and we were young and because of our situation, restless and bored. And with the pay that we hadn’t been able to spend for 4 months. That one would not have been anything close to feminine.

      About a year ago I got the first of two tattoos. I never got one before because there was nothing important enough that I would want to put on my body. Then it came to me, a reference to a children’s book, that is not too popular, that I’ve loved since the first time I read it. It kind of described me. The second I got a few months ago after deciding/realizing my gender. The first tattoo is on the top of my right foot — very hidable. And for those of you afraid of needles, I’m going to make it worse. It starts on the side and then goes to the top of my foot and it was uncomfortable, until he got to the top of the foot part. Then It felt like I was being sliced with a scalpel. But I’m very glad I got it, it’s in a hidable place, and it’s California and most people don’t care.

      The second tattoo is also wording that came to me in the middle of the whirlwind of realization. It describes the two parts of me and will become more relevant and appropriate as I transition further. It’s circular around my ankle and the words wrap around. Both are very identifying to people who know me, so I can’t share for a few years.

      About girly tattoos, I like feminine tattoos around the foot and somewhat up the lower leg. A coworker of mine, a young twentysomething, had that kind of tattoo twenty years ago. And, yes, it was a tattoo, but it was also feminine. She was also 20 years younger than I so she had that generational advantage. In a more open-minded society, I would have gotten a tattoo like that, but as a fortysomething large sized male that would have been quite a problem. Now when I dress I don’t try to hide the tattoos but like to display them. My wife gave me a toe ring, back when that was trendy, because she knew I like feminine things. I got more strange looks because of that ring than I have walking downtown fully dressed as a woman. And, no, I would not pass, and that little toe ring was more controversial at that time than a large man dressed as a woman walking around town today. I attribute that to progress made by LGBTQ+ community.

      So, there’s one more tattoo in my future, once I transition. It will represent both the progress I’ve seen in this world over the last 50 years and the fulfillment of my femininity.

      Yep, I have a little 2″ tattoo and I don’t regret it. Quite the opposite in fact.

      It’s a small, simple sun design on my ankle. My eldest had a similar one done separately. They were to commemorate the passing of a wonderful woman – my wife, and her mother.

      I have none and absolutely no desire to have one. Most of my feelings on tattoos track those of Rachel, so they do not bear repeating.

      I do sometimes wonder if this is somewhat of a generational thing, as younger people seem to be more accepting of tattoos.

      Don’t have any manly tats and never wanted one.  But….some of the beautiful inked women I’ve seen make me think twice.  Maybe.

      None for me and I have no plans for any permanent tats.

      That said however I do think there are some beautiful tattoos and will at some point have a henna tattoo or other temp tattoo. At our last local Tacoma Freedom Fair I would have got the henna tat if the line was shorter.

      Whatever I get will be one on my ankle (to start with).

      No tattoos. I’ve considered them and have the patterns narrowed to 3, each memorials to my grandfathers. But I’m afraid of needles.

      Personally, I despise tattoos.

      The vast majority are poorly designed and executed and there seems to little regard for what is being tattooed on one’s body. Ethnic identity withstanding most are in poor taste. Speaking as a longtime graphic designer I have seen a few pieces that have been truly thoughtful and of brilliant execution but I’m still a believer in “ my body is my temple”.

      Enough of the trampstamps people!

      love //Polly

      fake tattoos are a good distraction, especially if you dont have tattoos. i wear one on my ankle every once in a while. people know id never get a tattoo so if they seen my out dressed they would never guess its me. you can get custom made tattoos online. something for you newbes that want to go out to think about.

      I have 3. And they are somewhat “masculine” in style. Also, since they carry family names, they would be recognizable to anyone that knew me. They are however on each shoulder and bicep area. I tend to keep my arms covered with long sleeves anyway. My arms are 17″ around and the long sleeve look hides their size and shape a bit. So, tats tend to be hidden.

      I served 22 years in the U.S. Navy.  Tattoos were always part of the Navy “culture,” long before they became popular in mainstream civilian life.

      Port calls in Asia were often places where sailors and marines got tattoos, especially in Singapore, because of the incredibly strict health laws there.

      Many of my shipmates got tattoos, very macho and part of the process of being a “real” sailor or marine, I suppose.   Then again, many of us did not.

      I cannot help but wonder if subconsciously or otherwise I knew eventually I would have improved opportunities to cross dress, and tattoos, IMHO, were not exactly becoming of my particular female style.

      Who knows?  Nevertheless, I never did get any tattoos.

      Rachel, I’m with you – I don’t have a tatoo and neither does my wife!

      I don’t want to offend any girl who has them though.

      Many years ago when I went on EHarmony shortly after it became a dating site, it took a few hours just to fill out all of the information to become a member and go looking for your next soul mate, lover, wife, or partner for life! That’s why I chose that site. I wasn’t just a “Let’s hook up and have sex” sight. It was a serious “Let’s go out on a date and see if it leads to true and unconditonal love forever” kinda site.

      You had to list you top 25 must haves in your next mate and your top 25 must not haves as well. No offense meant here but in my top 5 must not haves of the top 25 was “NO TATOOS” and that eliminated about 85% of the girls to choose from right off the bat. My future to be wife had the same in her top 5 must not haves as well! Other things on my must not haves included – no verbal abuse, no drug abuse, no mental abuse, no infidelity, no dishonesty, no past episodes of cheating on your husband or boyfriends, no violent tempers, no bad credit, no financial issues, no kids living at home or coming back on a regular basis for money, no arrest record, and the list went on. There were 25 of those must not haves and 25 of the must haves.

      Under the must haves were: I prefer an intelligent girl preferably with at least one college degree, someone with a sense of humor, a lady with no kids or kids who are grown, college educated, financially independent, and preferrably living at at least 4 states away! Someone who knows how to give and receive true love, someone with a sense of style when it comes to clothing, someone who’s easy and fun to talk to, someone who’s attractive and easy on the eyes, someone who may have had a spouse who cheated on them which led to their divorce, and on and on and on.

      Just so happens my 25 must haves and must not haves only gave me 3 girls in the universe to choose from and one of them was a nurse practitioner in health administration who had the almost identcal lists I had and lived just 40 miles north of me!

      Now we connected by email but it was right in the middle of football season and every weekend I was at the SEC college football game of the week doing sports reporting and taking sports photos from the sidelines of the games. I became close friends with Tracy Wolfson, Gary Danielson, and Verne Lundquist from CBS for years and years!

      Bottom line, each week my future to be Sexy Redhead would ask me out on a date and every weekend I would be off to a different city in the Southeastern United States to cover a college football game. So it was several weeks before we ever met in person on our first date which was dinner at her home and some wild and exciting events that took place and lasted until the sun came up the next morning! I’ll spare you the intimate details but it was one of the best nights of my entire life and we’ve been together ever since late lovely night.

      To make a long story even longer, I don’t mind other people having tatoos at all. Some of my very best friends are covered with tatoos. Since becoming a member I’ve seen all sorts of girls on here with manly tatoos who now, after becoming a serious cross dresser probably wish they may not have gotten those tatoos many years ago. To me they don’t add to one’s femininity at all – just my own personal opinion and observation. You may feel just the opposite and I think nothing less of you because you do – even if you have them all over your body!

      I do notice tatoos drastically change in definition, color, size, and shape and a tatoo that’s 40 or 50 years old looks very ruff to me and some folks don’t realize the change which will take place after decades pass and many of them have a case of tatoo regret or “REGERT” as that former TV commercial used to show to bring a laugh or a smile to one watching that commercial.

      Well that’s it for now and sorry about my tatoo novel I wrote you and was just wondering if anyone else out there feels the same way about tatoos as Rachel and I do! Just curious girls and don’t go hatin’ on me because I’m not into them. To each there own and if you think tatoos are goregous, more power to you and looking forward to your next one to put on display!

      As I stated earlier, so many of my very best friends have 1 or up to 50 or more on their bodies and it doesn’t make me love them any less!

      XOXOXO Scarlett

      I have two one on each uper arm. I designed both the first one is 4 wooden baby blocks you see three sides of each block on the face of the blocks the letters spell my sons name. On the top of the blocks my wife’s name and the end of the blocks spell LOVE. The second one took me 18 yrs to get it drawn just wright it is of a ribbon it has no start or end. Start anyware on the ribbon and follow it and you end up ware you started. A end less loop that spells my doughter’s name. They both have a great meaning and have not regretted getting them.
      I also like the temp tattoos some times they can be that litte extra to get that fab fem look.

      you can order custom temporary tattoos online. they can make what ever you want. i live to push the envelope sometimes so i ordered some that said “I love dk”   love was a shape of a heart. i wore it on my ankle. no body said anything to me for about a month. a few girls said they liked it and some even asked if they could take a picture of it.

      No ink on this girl.   I do admit to thinking of it on and off thru life though.  A bit of ink is okay, but whole arms, legs, etc.  is too much imho.

      Maybe a small owl holding a rolled up scroll with the name Stevie on it.  ( I like owls, and eagles are overrated ).

      i have no tattoos. i see beautiful ladies with tattoos on their legs and think that was a sexy leg at one time. or they have them on their chest. or full arm tattoo. i seen some that looked like a 2 year old did them. art is to hang on the wall. and why do people put japanese words on them when they cant speak japanese. i guess sometimes you get drunk or want to fit in or talked into it. you might like it today but what about 10 or 20 years from now? it a permanent thing. i have a few piercings that i like right now. but down the road who knows. but when i decide to get rid of them, i just have a small hole that will close up over time. thanks for all your replies. just wanted to know how they affected your double life.

      I once had the idea of getting a tattoo, but after watching a girlfriend of mine go through it all, I chickened out and have never thought about doing it again.  I also have a thing about needles.

      I am not  a fan of tattoos either…. but my son has many… all tasteful and each one has a meaning. His look good……. at least I’m used to them now… most of his friends, male and female have them.

      During my hiatus from dressing…. he talked me into a bonding thing and we both went for tattoos…. I regret it now, it’s on my left arm and I have to refrain from getting sleveless dresses, tops, etc. I do have tatoo cover makeup and it works for pictures…. but close up you can tell….

      Does anyone have a suggestion for a good tatoo cover makeup? Thanks

      Never had the desire.  Like smoking.  I was surrounded by smokers.  Mother, father, aunts, uncles, friends, doctors, nurses, you name it, lived my young life under a nicotine cloud and never puffed once.  Been to Las Vegas three times and never bet a nickle.

      I’m weird.

      Yes… I have 3 tattoos. Two are definitely manly, and one not so much. Middle ground I would say.

      Sorry…. prefer not to give details in the public domain.

      I have no professional tattoos, and mostly have had no interest in getting any, but it reminds me of a funny story.  Back around 1959, a friend of our father, gave me and my older brother, rolls of lick or wet-on color tattoos, or really transfers.  For about a week we were the hit of the two schools we attended and probably the bane of the teachers and principals, oh yes, we sold smaller roles of 5 or 10, for maybe a dime.  They were just comic drawn temporaries, but that was as close to tattooing as I cared to get. My two adult daughters on the other hand…what were they thinking???? I doubt I’ll be around when they pass 60 or 70 but I’d love to see how those tats turned out.

      That’s a good point about being identifiers, makes me glad I never acted on the occasional impulse to get a tattoo.

      What I once considered beautiful and artistic has evolved so much over the years and I suspect will continue as I ‘mature’

      I have kokopelli on my shoulder. I have considered getting feminine tattoos that would not be seen in public.

      I have a few. Some a are covers of older tattoos that either were a bit “manly” or just not relevant to my life now. I agree that they can be identifiers, so you have to be careful about what you get and where on your body you have it. Mine are very generic as to gender, leaning towards the feminine side, and are in places where I can cover them if I choose to. Good question!

      Not really a fan of body “art.” No tattoos for me.
