Donald Trump on Miss Kansas' tattoos: "I don't know what's going on nowadays, everybody's getting tattoos"

As the abdominal artwork of Theresa Vail captures that attention – and in some cases, ire – of the media and beauty pageant community leading up to Sunday's Miss America contest, this evening "Piers Morgan Live" invites renowned television personality and business magnate Donald Trump to share his candid perspective.

The owner of the Miss Universe Organization, which produces the Miss Universe, Miss USA, and Miss Teen USA pageants, Trump was rather clear in expressing his staunch disapproval of body art:

"We don't encourage it. I'm not a fan of tattoos. I see many people get the tattoos," Trump tells Piers Morgan. "I don't know what's going on nowadays, but just everybody's getting tattoos. Many of them regret it later."

The reigning Miss Kansas, and a sergeant in the U.S. Army, Vail is choosing not to cover her ink during the event, as she feels it provides her with a platform to help empower women. Trumps stance, meanwhile, is based not only on an ideal, but also on aesthetics and execution:

"Many of them are done by people that aren't even artists. They have no talent, they have less talent than I would have in putting on a tattoo. I see these people with tic-tac-toe boards on their arms and legs," notes the man whose net worth exceeds three billion dollars. "I don't understand what's going on with the tattoos. I would certainly not want it. I would not want anybody that I'm close to to have it."

Watch the rest of the clip to hear Trump's analysis of tattooed pro basketball players, then tune in this evening at 9 for the rest of Morgan's interview with the man who once chose not to fire him, instead choosing to crown him the first-ever winner of "The Celebrity Apprentice."

    Piers Morgan why do you not take your tea and crumpet ass back to Limey Land, that way you can be protected by a socialist government and that way you will not have be afraid of citizens that right too own fire arms. We do not need your stupid ass over here, so go back to your native country. My Dad was a World War 2 veteran and he said many times that he had more respect for the British Women than he did the men of Britain.

    Please stop asking Trump to comment on foreign politics. He is a realestate broker, not a foreign policy expert. I expect more from you Piers.

      I agree with you Wayne. I am appalled that Pierce would even allow him air time. What a waste.

      Why would you expect more from Morgan ???...Morgan career experience is in cheap tabloid gossip,which he continue to revel in...Why would anybody listen to the opinion of Morgan on anything ??....And his shady career is riddled with scandal and deceit...What is a further mystery, is why CNN keeps this snooty buffoon on the air.

    Piers, I am now considered a former fan of your show. How dare you degrade YOURSELF by interviewing Trump. How much did he pay you? He knows NOTHING, NOTHING about foreign policy and as for yourself the same. Go back to your own country and learn your policies instead of degrading our President of the USA. You have no class anymore and then again, you never did! Is this interview with Trump primming him to run for the President of the USA. Take him with you to your country and you both can run it-after all you sound like best buds.

    I agree with Trump. Tattoo's are tacky and dumb and make a person look "soiled'. Human skin is an organ and should be left as is.
