    Default Meaning of Tattoo positions?

    Does a position of a tattoo have any relevance to a persons sexual orientation or preferences?
    An acquaintance on another (car) forum has been asking advice on a full sleeve. He has been advised against having one as it will imply that he's gay (depending on the arm whether he gives or receives). He is on a big weight loss drive and plans a tattoo as a reward to himself at the end of it.

    In my naivety I kind of thought that those ideas had faded out with tattoo and piercing becoming more mainstream. Am I wrong? Or is it just relevant if you move within certain circles?

    Apologies if I'm being thick!

    On their way out? More like long gone.
    Seriously? It's depressing to see people who still stick by those "visual cues" of one's orientation. Makes as much sense as all blondes being Nazies or everyone that wears blue jeans being psycho killers.

    pretty much agree with what has already been said...
    I also find it incredibly sad that in this day and age people are still using so called visual clues to determine whether or not someone is gay or straight... because there's so much evidence to prove the fact that if a guy has a piercing on his left side he must be gay (sarcasm)
    personally if it were me i would tell my friend just to ignore what people are telling him and to go ahead and get the tattoo for what it is a reward for loosing weight and that it shows nothing more than the fact that he likes tattoo's

    The only thing you can read into the position of a tattoo or piercing is that's where its owner wants it.
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    Both lobes 1/2", 5mm, 1.6mm
    Left rook & 5mm helix punch
    Right helix x2 & forward helix

    I don't agree, I think that where you have a tattoo, or a piercing is indicative of your sexual orientation, and that is SEXY !!
