There will always be lovers and haters in this world because we can never all see eye to eye. Take the celebration of Valentine's Day and the act of getting a tattoo, for example. Valentine's Day is celebrated by many, but it also has a lot of people who aren't fans of the holiday. Tattoos are the same way; either you love them or you don't. Therefore, it stands to reason that Valentine tattoos might seem like a good idea for some and like a mistake to others. Well, this gallery of Valentine tattoos is for both the lovers and the haters of the concept of V-Day-inspired tattoos. If you're wondering how that can be, well, let's just say that there is plenty for the lovers to love and just as much for the haters to hate.
