Judging a person based off a tattoo in a specific area? Way to go by following stereotypes. I actually had a similar situation. It was a month before my 18th birthday, and I informed my friends I was getting my nipples pierced for the occasion. They all totally flipped the fuck out, saying only "sluts" and "skanks" got piercings there. I asked why, and they replied with testimony of porn stars and girls who flash their boobs all the time have them. Huh. I'm not a porn star or flash anything or have participated in any sexual acts, so what's the problem? I got them pierced as I planned, and then my friends do a complete 180 and congratulate me about it, wishing they could have been there for it.... What? It is totally ridiculous to believe a tattoo or piercing in a certain area makes a person slutty. The only people who know about my piercings are the friends I have told because no one has actually seen my breasts. See? Not a slut. Though the nipples are associated with sex organs, it does not make the person a slut unless they expose themselves or take part in promiscuous behavior. Same goes with the "tramp stamp". The fact that some people have tattoos there for guys to jizz on like a target does not speak for the entire group of people who have them. It's a harsh and false generalization. It's like saying all women who get yeast infections are sluts. Yeast infections have a multitude of causes, not just "sleeping around" and whatnot, so saying such an accusation is rather crass and baseless.
Honestly I don't see a point in doing that at all. If you're NOT a whore, then what's the point of paying for something that nobody is going to see, or can't be shown to anybody? It's not like you can go "oh hey dad I got a piercing/tattoo" and show him your boobs or butt or well... anything of that sort. Very awkward... FYL OP, but hey, should have thought.
My sister has a tramp stamp, and I call it that in front of her all the time. BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT IT'S CALLED. Just because a lot of women get them now doesn't mean they aren't slutty, nor does it mean that guys are going to think about it any differently. That's like a girl getting a tongue ring and then getting upset about people thinking she got it for a certain reason. Sorry a commonly-used term offended your sensitive, feminist nerves.
Wow, personally, I think it's just a term. I mean, I can see where it's coming from - if people are looking at it, then they're pretty much staring at your underwear line. It's almost like an arrow below your neck pointing down, or a bullseye in your cleavage. No, you're not NECESSARILY showing that particular piece of skin, but no one's seeing it if you're not. That as it may be, I don't see anything wrong with that. Either you hide the tattoo and only yourself and a few other people see it, or you are comfortable enough with your body to expose it. That doesn't actually make you a slut, being a slut makes you a slut. (Not that there's anything wrong with that either, mind you.)
People with "tramp stamps" who aren't tramps, who get called tramps because they have a tattoo in a place that's easy to cover. Shoulders, large sections of the back, arms, and legs can all show in women's formalwear, so if a girl wants a tattoo that won't be showing at a dinner party, lower back is good. That's who cares.

Tattoos are commonplace and more socially acceptable now..."tramp stamp" is an out-dated term. YDI for being stuck in the stone ages.
I definitely still hear and call lower back tattoos 'tramp stamps'. Tattoos may be more socially acceptable these days, and I have three, but I still have enough common sense of where to NOT get tatted. i.e.- lower back, face, and practically anywhere visible in a professional job placement, if necessary.
I'm sick of people thinking girls who get tattoos there are automatically tramps...tattoos are a form of art, and any that are symmetrical need a symmetrical place on the body to look best... That leaves your choices as basically between your shoulder blades or your lower back, and seeing as the lower back is easier to hide for work etc, its the common choice. Grow up people.
It's just a slang term. I explained it to my mother the other day because my teacher had one. Most of the time when I use it, I don't mean it in a hurtful way. It's not a big deal. I want a tattoo when I'm old enough to get one too (two years). Times have changed, women get tattoos, but it does not make them a literal "Tramp" automatically. OP: You did nothing wrong. Bosses with daughters tend to take everything way too seriously. You were just saying what they were called. If he has a problem with that, then he definitely needs to get over it.
Nobody's saying girls who get tattoos are tramps. Now, the girls who get tattoos on their lower backs; those are generally tramps. Whenever I know a girl and end up seeing a tramp stamp on her my opinion of her usually drops. "Oh... You have a tattoo THERE...? Uh, that's pretty cool..." ... *wonders how much jizz has hit the tattoo* Whenever a guy sees a girl with a lower back tattoo he always, ALWAYS assumes it's a cum target and nothing more. "But waaaaaa waaaaa, you're just stereotyping. Blah blah feminist babble." Shut the fuck up. If you didn't want to be labeled a cum dumpster then you never should have gotten a permanent label on your body displaying it. Just about everyone knows the social connotations of a lower back tattoo nowadays and knows there's a stigma attached to it. Knowingly getting one is just like purposely wearing a low cut top in a public place and bitching about when guys look.
It's not your fault his daughter's a skank.
That is what they're called right? What ^ said. It's not your fault his daughter is a tramp. FYL that your boss just can't accept that.
