Still better than nothing, IMO.

It's not something I would do to my dog.
and if I was a vet, it's not something I would agree to do.

That said, I am fine with S/N as well as docking/cropping..so it would be hypocritical for me to say this is downright wrong/unethical.

If the dog isn't in pain when it's done.. then I suppose I see nothing ethically wrong with it.
it does wrong me the wrong way but alas, a lot of things do lol doesn't mean they should be illegal

I think there is a HUGE difference between collars and tags with pertinent info and getting a tattoo because you think it is pretty.

So ID tattoos absolutely must be ugly in order to have pertinent information?

I know a guy who was doing an ID tattoo on his pit bull and opt'd for a symbol instead of a number. It doesn't bother me.

Tucker has my name along his groin. It's now a messy blob at 15 but it did its job when he was a younger dog and a danger runner.

I think they should be small and simple. If you want to show off tattoos get them on yourself.

Small can be a double edged sword, since they can often blur and become less readable as the tattoo ages. Simple is relative to the person. I never said I wanted to "show off" tattoos on Zander. I said it would be specifically for ID purposes, but there's no reason why he should have crappy vet handwriting scrawled across his stomach or in his ear.

If I can think of something easy, decent, that can be ID'd and easily so, I'll do that instead.

I would never want to put my dog under for a tattoo nor would I ask them to tolerate one without being put under. That said, I have no beef with them being done while the dog is neutered.

Of course there is no regulating that and frankly who am I to tell you you can't chop ears or ink your dog but you can pinch off dewclaws or cut it open and yank out its baby makers.

That too. Horses are typically freeze or fire branded, but I don't think there is a way to safely do that on a dog, particularly those with longer hair, like Zander.

But if he was already being put under for something, like teeth cleaning or whatever, and I could figure out how the tattoo process typically went, I wouldn't mind it.

I think some of the ears are done with stamps, though, aren't they? I mess around with the idea, but I've never looked into the process too much because I can't think of a decent idea that would be a good and easy ID tattoo.
