Tats are just another form of body decoration. Same as manscaping, piercings and fetish wear (Leather harness’, chaps, boots or clothing.) I love any type of body art, even when it’s not something that I want on my body.
I also find Scarification (Branding or cutting the flesh with a design or emblem) to be a sign of incredible dedication and honor to someone/thing. I know a leather master/daddy in Chicago who branded his slave/lover on the ass with his initials. The slave takes great delight in showing the brand and lets everyone know that he is the property of his master.
