It's interesting to hear the opinions of someone who has
tattooed quite a lot. I think you are probably right that most
people get tattooes, not for the pain, for for some event or tragedy
or celebration in their life. Perhaps it is the piercing, branding,
hanging from meat hooks etc. that is more for the pain than it is
for fashion or commemoration, and therein is the replacement
for battle. I say all of this as someone who has no tattooes,
piercings, brandings etc....pierced ears and maybe one day a
pierced nose.

Perhaps the contempt shown by some in the the tattooed crowd
for henna is based on the feeling that henna is for those who are
not only too weak to bear the pain but are too indecisive or too
lacking in commitment to commit a single design to their skin for
all eternity.

I don't know the answers but it is interesting to sift through these
ideas and hear different opinions.
