    I would ban them.
    Watching some fights tonight .
    All garbage and all covered in ink.
    Ended up back on utube.
    Hate tattoos.
    Probably showing my age but they seem to reflect drop In modern standards.
    Detest them on women.
    Cant remember any of my classic fighters having them , although I'm sure someone will give examples.
    Slightly off topic , senior moment .....

    My kids have them, and while I don’t really find them aesthetically pleasing to behold (and quite thankfully my wife does not have any)...they really don’t bother me a whole lot.

    personally I don’t have any....c’mon bro you don’t put a bumper sticker on a Mercedes lol

    trashy? Is a matter of opinion and likely derived from generational and cultural perceptions and stereotypes....cheap.....no way I know what my kids and nieces and nephews pay....cheap is one thing they ain’t lol

    Tom Sharkey's tattoo looked badass. That is my only exception

    I always remember looking kind of sideways at Tommy Morrison's tiny jungle cat tattoo. Kind of funny now looking back as today guys (and girls) entire bodies are canvases for all kinds of ink. Really the first fighter I remember (besides young Mike Tyson's tiny upper arm script), to sport a tattoo. Much more innocent time lol.

    I honestly dont see the problem, as long as it’s not making them any less of a fighter who cares? We have Johnny Tapia, Winky Wright, Miguel Cotto, Manny Pacquiao, and Vasyl Lomachenko who are tattooed up but are still great fighters.

    Lol, I thought it was just me showing my age.
    I see pretty young girls at the gym, then they take off their jacket limbs are covered in tatoos , I just think , why ? Have you done that.
    They do nothing to enhance anyones appearance.
