'Teen Mom' Maci Bookout's Tattoo Addiction Is Getting Out of Control

OMG 35

Maci BookoutShe already has, like, a few hundred tattoos (or something), but according to an update she recently posted on Twitter, Maci Bookout is planning another tattoo session. She didn't mention when it's going to happen or where on her body they are going to magically appear.

Yep -- girl obviously can't get enough of her ink, but considering how many tattoos Maci already has, doesn't it seem like she might be a little bit addicted to them?

Personally, I don't have any tattoos, but I have plenty of friends who do and many of them have told me that they're a lot like potato chips. But instead of not being able to eat just one, you can't get just one -- to the point where you're already planning your next tat before the tattoo artist is even done with your current session.

And every time I hear someone tell me that tattoos can be addicting, I'm even more convinced that I'm not meant to have one. Or two. Or seven.

Here's the thing with Maci -- she's only 22, so while she may dig being all inked up now, there's a chance that she may regret a few of her tattoos, particularly the ones located on parts of her body that are tough to cover up. She might want to think about quitting while she's ahead. Then if in another 10 years or so she's still really feeling the urge to get another tattoo, she can take the plunge knowing it's something she truly wants.

Of course, Maci is a pretty mature gal for her 22 years, so I guess there's a chance that she'll be just as confident about the tattoo choices she's made in the future as she is now. Given how many she has -- let's hope that's the case; otherwise, some of them are going to be a real bitch to try and remove.

Do you have tattoos? Does getting them make you want more and more and more?

I do not have tattoos and I don't get it. It also seems like most people who do get them are in a bracket that should be spending the money it takes to get one elsewhere (you know like for their kids)

I have many tattoos and I do believe they are addictive. I love my tats from the 1st one I got at 15 to my most recent that I got 5 yrs ago at 32. I wouldn't change any of them. They are part of my life story. Each marks a particular time in my life. I currently have 6 and am looking forward to getting a new one after the 1st of the year. My 64 yr old mother has about 7 tattoos and most likely will be going with me to get another tattoo at the same time I get my next one done.

Ive got two, I got my first at 18 and my second at 21, I didn't have my first child till I was 24. I want to get my kids name and maybe a memorial tatoo for my dad who died a year and a half ago from cancer, that's about it, they are to painful to be addicting for me, that's why I only have 2 so far and so much space in between the two.

I think for some they are addicting.  Mine have deep personal meaning and are easily hidden by clothing if I so choose or not if I don't.  I want one more in honor of my children and eventually one to honor my mother after she dies (have one for my father who died).  My rule of thumb though when tatoo virgins ask about designs is I tell them to post it somewhere they will see it every day and avter 6 months if they still want it and are happy with the design then go get it inked.  I have even seen people use permanant markers to draw it on themselves to see how they like it (lasts about a week).

Lobus, who are you to say that poeple with tattoos "are in a bracket that should be spending money.. on their kids"?? what makes you think that those of us with tattoos don't take care of our kids properly? It's people like you that I personally can't stand... I have 8 tattoos and I take very good care of my son and always have. My son is and always will be #1 in my life. Just because some people have tattoos doesn't make them bad parents, get over yourself. I work my a** off to take care of my obligations and also to treat myself and if I feel like I want to spend my hard earned money on a tattoo, after my bills are paid and my son has what he needs, that I will do just that. Don't be judgemental just because you can't be open-minded....

The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that we don't care if you're not tattooed. (:

Who cares; it's her body.

I have 7 tattoos and I have a min. of 4 more that I have already planned on getting. It truly is an addiction, however what is so bad about it? All my tattoos tell stories or have a meaning, in fact most tattoos are telling stories. I just don't understand why it is such a big deal? It is our bodies, they are our choices, let us make them. Please do not sit there and tell me its because she is a celebrity because there are plenty of professional athletes that have a ton of tattoos as well and I don't see anyone making a fuss about them. Oh please tell me it is because she's a female, cause that is a bunch of bs two, she is an adult, plan and simple.

I'm 18 and I love tattoos and I think they

are very addictive I have 4 so far and my 4th one isn't finished yet but I'm ready for another one. U don't see anything wrong with tattoos and I don't understand why people judge other people with tattoos because you don't have to deal with them for the rest of your life we do. And just because we have tattoos doesn't mean we are bad people or we don't take care of our kids or make sure what needs to be done is done. Tattoos are just our way of telling our stories and expressing ourselves and showing our individuality .
