Rent Party: ModernPrimitive01: Rent Party: MilesTeg: Is it "cooler" yet to NOT have a tattoo? Seems like it is about time for the fad cycle to switch that way

Because it is not their art, it is the tattoo guy's art. It is akin to saying "I bought the new Stones album, so therefore I am a musician." There is only *one* reason why people modify their bodies with commercial tattoos and piercings, and that is to set themselves apart from everyone else.

Actually, people that spend a lot of time getting specific tattoos usually consider themselves art collectors. I'm not sure what a commercial tattoo is. What about the rape survivor who gets herself pierced because it makes her feel more in control of her body (similar to black fraternities that do banding rituals as way of claiming their own bodies instead of what slave owners but them through)? Or a genital piercing that is done for increased sexual pleasure? I have a large gauge septum piercing that people rarely see because I keep a plug in it. For me it marked a major milestone in my life. I don't think it makes me feel unique, hundreds of thousands of humans have done the same thing but it has a deeply personal meaning for me. There are lots of stories similar to mine if you had an open mind instead of judging the actions of others based on preconceived notions.

Well, I am unique and special. But that is a function of what I do, rather than how I decorate myself. People that put that much time and energy into their appearance have 0 credibility when they say they don't care what other people think.

Wow, so you're saying people who make a concentrated effort to change their bodies never do it for personal reasons? It always had to be a function of what other think of them? I think that says more about your worldview than it does about the behavior of other people.


/body modification has been around since recorded history, it's as much a fad as human civilization


And if people were doing it for religious or cultural reasons, that might be relevant. As it is...

Last time I looked people into body modifications had a pretty distinct subculture. Also if you look at indigenous tribes, not all body modification is done for religious reasons. In Borneo, the children of certain tribes will tattoo one another just for the enjoyment of it. Much like doodling. The reasons behind something is irrelevant in determining whether or not it's a fad since a fad means it spikes in popularity then stops. Just because in your world you didn't see tattoos a few years ago doesn't mean hundreds of thousands of humans around the globe weren't doing it. The mere fact that since ancient Mesopotamia people have been recorded as modifying themselves shows it isn't a fad. That would be like saying since Dub step is a popular form of music right now it must be a fad, so music must be a fad. I would venture to say you've only met a sliver of the body modification community in your life, just because you see the people on the t.v. have tattoos doesn't mean that before celebrities got them no one else was doing this stuff.

ManicParroT: Paris1127: Somacandra: H31N0US: How do you write "Your blog sucks" in kanji?

He said Kanji; I'm pretty sure that's Hiragana or Katakana...

/can't tell Hiragana and Katakana apart
//what? Can't a guy know the Japanese writing system without knowing Japanese?
///knows French, Italian, some Hebrew, some German, some Portuguese, some Spanish

Katakana:アイウエオカキクケコ etc

Hiragana: あいうえおかきくけこ etc

As a rule of thumb, the curvier stuff is probably hiragana, the more angular letters are likely to be katakana.

/Now you know.

Not all Japanese words are written with kanji and it would be impossible to write 'your blog sucks' completely in kanji as there is no kanji for blog AFAIK. Blog is a borrowed word so it is written in katakana as ブログ.

I've always been partial to the idea of getting おっぱい大好き tattoo'd somewhere. Not sure if that would play to my advantage or not....

Well, if I remember my one semester of Japanese from ten years ago, some words are properly done in only one script. Loan words are done in katakana. So a sentence like, "Go down to the shop and get me some ice cream," would be written in hiragana except for "ice cream." And I think most of it would be in Kanji anyhow.

Sometimes I almost wish that I didn't have any ink. They guys who proudly announce that they are the real rebels because they don't have tattoos/piercings seem to have so damn much fun doing so. But, then I remember that my tats have nothing to do with being rebellious and that I don't really care what anyone thinks about them. and go on about my life.

I've got "Type 1 Diabetic" written as part of my anchor tattoo in English, Russian and Japanese - was damn happy when a Japanese friend told me it was written correctly, as the tattoo artist was Swedish. You don't want someone treating you for, i dunno, okonomiyaki when you're in the hospital.

Hiragana is not the same thing as kanji. FWIW , a lot of those kanji tats may be of chinese origin, so when read as japanese kanji, they often get a slightly more humorous meaning then originally intended. Vice versa of course. Japanese use the same kanji characters as the chinese but altered many of the character's meanings long ago in an effort to discourage accurate information from reaching mainland China.

Having a tat will make it twice as likely that I will let you have happy-fun-sexy-time with me.

Because I find (good) tats hot as all hell.

Kanji in itself is a lot of fun. Went through hell trying to come up with the proper combination of characters when naming my older daughter as certain combinations bring wealth, while others are bad luck.

My wife will translate an interesting kanji tator sign once in a while trying to maintain a straight face. She usually follows up her translation with " I can't be sure though as I'm not sure what the artist (of different nationality) intended the kanji to be read".

There is a certain sector of society that believe that "velvet Elvis" portraits are art as well. No accounting for taste I guess....
