the bottom line is that tattoos carry a cultural connotation that is unacceptable in Korea.
she should know this, or does she think that an exception should be made for her because she is somehow special.

I am happy in my skin and I am not sure what to say when others are not happy with my skin.

So happy, in fact, that you had to cover it in tattoos, all over, to show how much of a rebel and independent you are.  Why not change your name, while you're at it?  Maybe do something really eccentric with your hair, too, and don't forget the piercings - all to demonstrate to anyone who sees you how comfortable you are with being who you are, and you don't care what other people think.

That's exactly what she thinks.  Fierce Korean pride, but doing her best to offend everything that makes Korean culture what it is.

I was following this too until I read the part of the spa being in Los Angeles.  I think it is reasonable for a blend of cultures to take place when one tradition takes root somewhere else.

True enough.

However, you wouldn't go to a Jewish bakery and expect them to have deviled ham to schmear on your bagel, would you?

Also, it's not like she didn't have other spa choices.  She *CHOse* to go there, and unless she's completely tone deaf to the culture she was raised in, she should have known what the reaction was going to be.  I see her as being the unreasonable one here.

Unlike sexual orientation and skin color, tattoos are a choice.  I think it's reasonable for a private organization to set their own friggin rules as long as they don't violate anyone's civil rights.

I'll never understand the need for people to get full-body tattoos. I have a small tribal tattoo around my upper arm that women seem to love. I doubt they'd like it if it were a huge sleeve or back tattoo.

It's so important to her - her "right" -to be naked with people who share her heritage, yet she wants to be able to offend them in the process.  Fantastic.  There's nothing oblivious her.
 
2013-03-26 08:21:51 AM
I know a woman who wanted to teach English in Korea. First question after getting through background and education stuff - Do you have visible tattoos?

If yes, you are not getting the job. People will not have their kids exposed to you.

I can't comprehend how Cho doesn't know better. Also the notion that they should adjust their culture to suit your shiatty ink is beyond me.
 
2013-03-26 08:22:04 AM
Not opposed to tattoos.  I don't have any.  My wife has a girly one on her ankle.   Davinci's cat.  My best friend who will be turning fifty (get off my lawn) this month, is getting one on his birthday.  With that said, why would you get the full body art that this girl has? There is something more going on in her Psyche.

Well on the one hand she has a tattoo of Medusa's head which was used as a shield motif in some Hellenistic cultures because it would scare their enemies. On the other hand those are some awesome tattoos.

I don't know, maybe it's because I've always been a bit of a fruit fly but I still like her comedy. I also like most of her tattoos. And as pointed out before this spa was in LA and there should be reasonable expectation of cultural blending. As for comparing it to ordering ham in a Jewish deli I think that's a false equivalence though.

She looks like an aged hipster who has not done a day of exercise in her life, no muscle tone and pancake ass.  Not to mention the pancake makeup.  She really looks like an old asian crossdresser.

People that get noticeably UPSET about tattoos crack me up. "I hate tattoos, so she's stupid and I hate her because I think her tattoos are ugly!" While her comedy is a pandering mess and she is painfully unfunny (Both her Korean bits, and her new-found 'Queen of the Gays' persona), it has nothing to do with her tattoos. Her act is one thing, her skin is another thing entirely. I think it's totally silly to say her ink looks like shiat. She has the money and the freedom to be worked on by world-class artists. Those aren't bullshiat onsie-twosie flash pieces picked off a wall, those are fully realized concepts and long, hard-earned sessions with undoubtedly talented world-class tattoo artists. That is literally (not figuratively) some of the best tattooing the world has to offer, and it sucks? If you think her bodysuit is bad work...well, the shiat doesn't get any better, dude. We mock what we don't understand, and we reveal our ignorance in the process. Getting hateful and mad about tattoos is a great barometer for people like me to know who I don't have to take seriously.

No, but making it all about her looks detracts from an actual conversation. You don't like her comedy or think she's a sh*tty actress/personality you're free to include that as a topic for discussion as it is a valid/reasonable point. It's zeroing in on how hot or not (in this case not) a celebrity/female politician is that continually lands Fark on internet misogyny lists.

Meh, she got all these tattoos to get attention and to be a social outsider.  She's loving every second of this.   The only sad part is that the traditional spa is feeding into this, instead of treating tattoos like the boring Mom Jeans they are.

There are a lot of prudes on Fark.  They are tattoos, get over it.

My guess is they reserve the right to refuse service to anyone as is their right. There will be another one lady, probably less than a mile away. Try that one and then you won't have to be in the news, which, I think, is the entire reason we are talking about this.

You don't have to even wait until 50.  The tattoo art style will likely be dated within 10 years, just like tribal tats and barbed wire bicep tats have.  Everytime I see a 20 something with these stylized tat sleeves I think  " Congrats nitwit, you've just given yourself a permanent mullet".

She's not funny and just looking for some attention--what a surprise.

If Korean culture had some sort of headgear I could definitely see them making patrons to a Korean spa, in LA or Podunk Iowa, wear one.

Bingo.  LA has probably thousands of spas, which I'm sure cater to all kinds of specific clientele.  She picked one that wasn't right for her, and frankly it's the spa owner's choice.  I'm sure there are many spas that would happily take her business and would be a better fit for her.

I'm guessing Korean culture is similar to Japanese cultrue in this, and that the level of tattooing she has on her body reads "gangster" to any elderly Korean or Japanese patron.

Right. Have you actually seen her tattoos? If that's truly the best the world's tattoo artists have to offer, then it's a pretty craptastic art form.

EatHam: dittybopper: However, you wouldn't go to a Jewish bakery and expect them to have deviled ham to schmear on your bagel, would you?

No, but I also wouldn't expect them to make me wear a yarmulke in there either.


If that was a condition of me going into their business, why would I care?  I'd either not go, or wear the kippa.  I wouldn't walk in, and on being told I need to cover my head, loudly complain about it.  I'd leave, or cover my pate.

Haters be hatin'

/I see the irrational Fark Anti-tat Brigade is out in force
//go practice your zealotry somewhere else.  It's just skin, it's not sacred.  The argument is just about as stupid as complaining that you use your PC to view images you like.  "TV's aren't for that!  Sinner!  You're going to HELL!"  What the fark ever. Even if you don't happen to be religious, your views are born of the same bad logic.
///and you hipster tatoo snobs?  You are just as bad.  That goes for quality snobs and size snobs as well.


Meh, as to the article....

If it's a place of business and not a church, they should allow anyone.  Gay, tatoos, black, white etc.  I find it amazing how you people will stick up for the rights of gays or other races, vilify Westboro Baptists, yet turn around and side with other prejudices vilifying that which is different or "offensive"
/or do we have a bunch of gay haters/racists in here too?
//come on now, speak up...

Seriously, if skin color doesn't matter, why do tatoo's matter?

Answer: Because you hold an irrational belief.  You find them distasteful and attempt to formulate a "valid" reason to dislike them to the point where you fool yourself and you equate tatoos to IQ or something similarly retarded.  Same bigotry concealment/rationalization attempts that racists/sexists/etc use all of the time.

Do society a favor, find a really fast moving bus, or hell, even a car(60mph+ ), and try to halt it's movement with only the physical force of your genitals.

She could have gone to Red Door Spa, but she opted for a Korean style treatment instead. It would be like me going out of my way to drive to the German Gourmet to pick up bratwursts and farmer's bread rather than going to Safeway and find something comparable. She wanted a specific style of body treatment that's culturally unique rather than going to western style business. I think the business is in the wrong on this one. At some point by planting themselves in a pretty liberal town full of "artistic" people, they shouldn't complain about seeing inked skin.

I disagree.  Korean spas are very nice and probably have a range of services other spas might not.  If these services are what you grew up with and enjoy, I can see why one would want to go back.  If the spa really had a problem with tattoos, they would have an upfront sign about it.

If a man at the spa was tattooed, I am almost certain no one would say boo to him (I think she alludes to this as much in TFA).  Furthermore, I think if she had been white, or any other race besides Korean, people would would have been content to whisper behind her back.  I am positive the old ladies complained because she spoke in Korean to them and they realized she could understand them and call them out on their crap (think back to that episode of Seinfeld at the Korean nail salon).  Old Korean ladies can be very mean.

This.

culture =/= religion

For example, it is typically considered discrimination if you deny service based on religion or lack-thereof.  That is part of US culture.

Unless the tatoo consisted of hate speech, there's no real reason for a place that allows nudity to ask certain individuals to cover up.

I'll never understand the need for people to get small tribal tattoos.  I have no tattoos and the women seem to love my bare body.  I doubt they would like me if I had tribal tattoos or other small tattoos.


When someone brags about having a tribal tattoo, I ask what tribe they are.  If they can't answer, i ask why the ink?  Even my brother chose to have Bear symbols as a way to show our Kiowa side, although traditionally, our people didn't do tattoos.  Margaret should have considered whether or not there were older Korean women in the spa, and have some respect for them.  Even I was brought up to know, there are just certain things you don't foist upon your elders, even if you are all hip and contemporary and whatnot.  If you show some Respect to your elders, you won't have to get a walking-stick beatdown from them later for doing something you ought to know was just plain stupid.

False.

You can exclude people who have behavior issues, loud, annoying, mean, etc. Behaviors that are not typically condoned in public.

Dress code is inapplicable as these people are allowed in clothes or in the nude/scantily clad.

You cannot exclude people based on skin color, religion(or lack-thereof).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-discrimination_law

And more importantly:
http://oag.ca.gov/publications/CRhandbook/ch4

The Unruh Civil Rights Act (76), or Unruh Act, as discussed in the housing chapter of this publication, applies to all business establishments of every kind whatsoever which provide services, goods, or accommodations to the public. Businesses subject to the Unruh Act include bookstores, gymnasiums, shopping centers, mobile home parks, bars and restaurants, schools, medical and dental offices, hotels and motels, and condominium homeowners associations. (77) The Unruh Act prohibits all types of arbitrary discrimination, and not just discrimination based on sex, race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, age, disability or medical condition. (78) The Unruh Act also prohibits discrimination based on personal characteristics, geographical origin, physical attributes, and individual beliefs. For example, the arbitrary exclusion of individuals from a restaurant based on their sexual orientation is prohibited.

My post saying she was a hag came because of all of these guys white knighting her saying she was pretty and then posting glamour shots so heavily shopped she looks inhuman.

She has made a career of being a loud mouth, a whiner, and hating on her own culture.  The tats were probably icing on the cake as an insult to traditional korean culture.

And what little attractiveness she does have is immediately lost by her behavior and attention whore attitude.

She was in a traditional spa, she should have shown some respect and put on the robe, instead she turned it into something about herself.

I was following this too until I read the part of the spa being in Los Angeles.  I think it is reasonable for a blend of cultures to take place when one tradition takes root somewhere else.

True enough.

However, you wouldn't go to a Jewish bakery and expect them to have deviled ham to schmear on your bagel, would you?

Also, it's not like she didn't have other spa choices.  She *CHOse* to go there, and unless she's completely tone deaf to the culture she was raised in, she should have known what the reaction was going to be.  I see her as being the unreasonable one here.



Ahhhh!  Jews don't use the word "schmear."  At least, not often at all.  I feel like someone (I'm looking at you, Einstein Bros Bagels) decided in 2004 to make it a thing.

I have to agree with your annoyance. I have many students that are the same way. Usually (because it's the Central Valley) I see Mexican-Americans who, while living a life whiter than mine, claim they truly understand Mexico.

I'm a poor white mongrel myself. I just recently found out, with documentation, that I have enough Cherokee blood to register as a Native-American. I won't.

The history, culture, and suffering of the Cherokee people is something I have never experienced. Unless I take the time to learn the history, understand the belief, and live the life, I'll never understand what it is to be Cherokee. Nor will my students learn the richness of what being Mexican is. Not without the work.

InmanRoshi: The tattoo art style will likely be dated within 10 years


And now you know why I don't have tattoos.

Most tattoo artists will draw on you with a Sharpie at a reasonable rate if you have a really tattoo-appropriate social function to attend, and that way you can try out several styles. If I ever get permanent ink done, I'd like one of those ultraviolet ones that's only visible under blacklight. I could look appropriate at my favorite nightclubs and at my future kids' PTA meeting, and apart from being Coolest Mom Ever at the kid-check of Chuck E. Cheese and on dark rides at amusement parks, it'd be completely acceptable.

That's true of pretty much every form of appearance-based rebellion. How else do you signal to like-minded people of whatever subculture you're hoping to clique up with, that you're one of them? People are social creatures, and a blanket refusal of all social norms whatsoever will leave you by yourself. Years ago, I refused to own a black leather motorcycle jacket with spikes all over it and shiat, or buy a pair of Docs. This on grounds that said fashion items were sort of expensive, given my low-rent lifestyle, and that every farking idiot I knew had them. All it did was get me invited to fewer parties and laid less.

It's not a high bar, to be sure, but it makes him feel good. Other people have huge cocks, great jobs, giant brains, etc.. why shouldn't he have something?

SpiderQueenDemon: InmanRoshi: The tattoo art style will likely be dated within 10 years

And now you know why I don't have tattoos.

Most tattoo artists will draw on you with a Sharpie at a reasonable rate if you have a really tattoo-appropriate social function to attend, and that way you can try out several styles. If I ever get permanent ink done, I'd like one of those ultraviolet ones that's only visible under blacklight. I could look appropriate at my favorite nightclubs and at my future kids' PTA meeting, and apart from being Coolest Mom Ever at the kid-check of Chuck E. Cheese and on dark rides at amusement parks, it'd be completely acceptable.

Even more toxic than regular tattoo ink. fark that. Tattooing as an industry has issues. Repetitive, hackneyed imagery arising from the total lack of imagination of both the tattoo clients, and most of the people putting them on. If I see one more Mexican sugar skull, I think I'll puke. That, and near me, there's about 40 more places to get a tattoo than there used to be 25 years ago. The number of people who can competently execute a tattoo is only up by at most, 8.

Barricaded Gunman: DeepDownHounds: I think it's totally silly to say her ink looks like shiat. She has the money and the freedom to be worked on by world-class artists. Those aren't bullshiat onsie-twosie flash pieces picked off a wall, those are fully realized concepts and long, hard-earned sessions with undoubtedly talented world-class tattoo artists. That is literally (not figuratively) some of the best tattooing the world has to offer, and it sucks?

Right. Have you actually seen her tattoos? If that's truly the best the world's tattoo artists have to offer, then it's a pretty craptastic art form.

If she didn't say one word, I'd possibly be able to hit it.

Optimal_Illusion: Evil Mackerel: The Googles Do Nothing: When I grow up I'm going to get a tattoo of a butt, with a butt tattoo on it, on my butt!

Just get a life size tattoo of yourself and save some time.

Just went waaaaay over your head, didn't it?

I think she looks ok and the tatoos are her business. But she should realize that she can't change Asian culture by herself.

omeganuepsilon: omeganuepsilon: The Unruh Act also prohibits discrimination based on personal characteristics, geographical origin, physical attributes, and individual beliefs

*crickets**

Funny how because people, know she can be a biatch/annoying/whatever, will fail on a principle check and let that kind of thing slide because they dislike someone in general.

The law only applies to those people who we like after all, it's not meant to cover everyone....  Reprehensible Asshats, every last one of you.


I agree that she should not be treated differently because of her tatoos. But the reality is that she is going to be treated differently by the other Korean ladies, and its not quite the same as Rosa parks on the bus. The business has no control over the hostility of the patrons and is trying to figure out a solution.

A reasoned response, on fark entertainment tab?

I don't think he'd have lost business over letting her be.  Those types of cranky old women have a tendency to complain but aren't so sensitive they'd stop going over that.

It's the principle of the thing, if it was white/black or christian/non or gay/straight you know it would make bigger headlines, and it would become popularly reprehensible for the manager to act that way.

manimal2878: Also, go to a spa that is not Korean you stupid whore.


She didn't complain "I can go to a spa"-- she complains "I went to this spa and look what happened this time". The point is that she grew up with has been to Korean spas before.

stainedglassdoll: blender61: the bottom line is that tattoos carry a cultural connotation that is unacceptable in Korea.
she should know this, or does she think that an exception should be made for her because she is somehow special.

Newsflash:  They are in America.  Not Korea.


This is it.  If there was a published rule or a sign posted to say anyone with visible tattoos cannot enter the water, she wouldn't have gone and this wouldn't have happened.

But if the spa is in Los Angeles and there was no mention of it when she arrived, entered, visited the changing rooms, etc...  this all just reads like bitter older women complaining that things aren't like in the Old Country.
