    Default don't like any of them

    Can one use:
    1-We talking about expensive tattoos. She doesn't like any of them.


    2-We talking about expensive tattoos. She doesn't like them.



    instead of:
    3-We talking about expensive tattoos. She doesn't like any tattoos at all.




    I suppose strictly speaking the 'them' in '1' and '2' stands for 'expensive tattoos and not 'tattoos'. But don't people sometimes speak like this?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    You surely know that 'We talking' is wrong.

    Otherwise, yes — people do talk like that.
