What's the deal with tattoos?

I just don't get it. Why do that to your own body? Especially visible tattoos for the women.

It's permanent ink, don't people think big picture and say, "When I'm 75 years old with my grandchildren, aren't they gonna look at my wrinkly skin and wonder what the hell I did that for?" 

Tattoos look especially foolish on older women. Not a classy look.

And, I know, I know...there's laser removal options. But, those are expensive, painful, and don't necessarily return your skin to what it looked like before.

A lot of younger people think tattoos look cool or whatever, but, I'm young, and I just think that tattoos are very short-term thinking. And they don't look as cool as you think.

I get the "different strokes for different folks" idea, but I'm just curious, why do people think tattoos are a good long-term idea?

What say you?
