Some tattoos are indeed stupid. Usually done by scratchers who will ink things onto teenagers who are too young to realize what they're doing, or people who really don't grasp the concept of a what a tattoo is and the reality of forever.

A well thought out quality tattoo means something to their wearer and is done by a professional. They can be very beautiful and personal at the same time.
