I've met some divers who collect tattoos as souveniors in the countries they visit. They will proudly point to each tattoo on their body and tell you in which country they got it. Then there are people who enjoy collecting "friendship" tattoos. E.g. when they travel overseas together with your friends, they want to remember (and they want you to remember) it. One of my friends made such a request before but the rest of us (including me) said NO. Of course, some people simply like tattoos. The designs overseas may be unique and the tattoo artist may be very skilful so that's why they want to get it done there. A tourist contracted HIV after getting a tattoo in Bali, Indonesia. Souvenior-collecting, friendship, vanity or whatever isn't worth the risk of contracting HIV!
