If the tattooed don't like to be judged or stereotyped maybe they should consider the social consequences before they get the tattoo(s).
Personally, I don't respect people with tattoos and piercings. To me, tattoos and piercings are evidence of a lack of self-control. People who
inflict pain on themselves for purposes of self-expression have a screw loose.

Wow....thanks for reminding me that some people in this world actually DO think like that.
You don't respect people who have piercings or tattoes? Does that go for women, too? You don't respect any women who has her ears pierced? That SURE
is a lot of women you don't respect, pal. Or is there a double standard, here, too? It is 'okay' for women to 'inflict pain upon themselves' but
For the record, tattoos and piercings don't really hurt at all. No one is inflicting pain on themselves.
What about bodybuilders? I'm not talking about people who exercise for fitness....what about bodybuilders who 'inflict pain upon themselves' merely
to look better. They work out obsessively, to tear their muscles, so that their muscles build back bigger. Do you lose respect for them, too?
I can totally understand people not liking tattoos, or piercings, or bodybuilders, or whatever you choose to 'dislike' on this planet. What I DON'T
understand, is people who say "I have NO respect for ____".
You choose to go above and beyond just disliking something. You actually view people who take part is something you don't like as DIFFERENT THEN YOU.
LESS than you. That, I will never understand.
