I agree with all of them except #2. Tattoos to me should have personal meaning to them. My 2 memorials to my deceased father and brother are beautiful and I get compliments on them all the time. (ones and owl and the other is an eagle) They have their initials under each one. If that makes me tacky or an idiot so be it. I think the author is an arsehole.

See, I can be judgmental too.

I'm very ambivalent about this issue. Don't have one, don't want one, Wifey has one, doesn't bother me, likewise daughter, co-workers have them, so what, meh. Whatever. The only thing I don't get are the full sleeve/all over the chest/neck/back stuff. But hey, it ain't my body or my money.

Guess what, Fark?  While I don't encourage tattoos, especially on women because it tends to mark up their already masterpiece-like bodies, I have accepted-the good tats-on women.

In fact, one I hope to know better has got a huge tattoo. *shrugs* It's tasteful and she's gorgeous. What can I do?

Here are my sea lions. They do mean something to me. Obviously I like sea lions. And they are my Zoo tattoos (they are from the Sea Lion Cove sign at the Zoo). I won't bore you all with what the Zoo means to me but I'm alive because of it.

Tribal tattoos? Really? I live on Kauai and even the local kids have tribal tattoos. Always fun to watch the face of a big Samoan standing in line behind a bright white tourist with a tribal.

I'm always puzzled by face tattoos. I saw a woman on the bus yesterday. She was attractive, but had brightly coloured hair and some tattoos on her face that were clearly decorative. She walked through the bus, polite, excusing herself as she squeezed past, so she might be a lovely person. But honestly, my first impression was that she was an idiot for tattooing her face.

Personally, I've never been a fan of tattoos, but I've realized that in this day and age, that majority of people have them. While I can't really judge people for having tattoos I find myself judging people based on where the tattoos are. And in a few years, it may be commonplace to have visible tattoos and no one will judge.

I know I'll have people telling me that I shouldn't judge, but it's human nature, you all do it for various reasons. Plus I've known enough tattooed people to know I shouldn't completely dismiss them because they are my friends and family members as well.

But I will never understand why people would permanently mark an easily viewed part of their body with a grotesque Garbage Pail Kid.

Let's see:

PHYSICALLY: The risk of getting a disease like Hepatitis from a tattoo artist that is not careful about sterilizing his/her equipment, the pain involved in getting one, the bleeding afterward
That's why you go to a reputable artist. They sterilize and use new needles for all customers. They really don't hurt much. They also don't bleed much at all. Maybe a little while it is being done, and it is stopped before they wash it down and put on a bandage.

MENTALLY: Why would anyone think they need a tattoo to make themselves "better"? Also, if you get a tattoo because you think it's "cool" then you're applying the standards of the world.
What's wrong with "I like this and think it looks nice on me?" Seems to be what most people I know use as their reasoning. That's why I have all of mine.

SOCIALLY: People who have tattoos are often looked down upon as rednecks or low-lifes simply because they have tattoos, and people who have visible tattoos often get passed over for jobs by people who believe tattoos present an unprofessional appearance.

Met a couple on a dive trip a few years back. The guys wife was going on and on about the tattoo he had on his ass. Finally got him drunk enough one night and he dropped his pants. It was bugs Bunny jumping towards his asshole with Elmer Fudd hot on his trail. Called him bunny the rest of the trip. Good times.

I got my tats long ago...before they were considered "in". And, two of them are visible, on my forearms.
I make it a point, and always have, not to judge a book by it's cover. Same as someone being overweight, too tall, too short, "weird looking", whatever. If someone is going to judge me by my tats, and assume I'm someone that I'm not, that's their loss.

Seems as though YOU are the one judging here...anyone who doesn't fit into that Ken and Barbie stereotype can also be misjudged, which means 99.9999999999999999999% of all humans.

Don't forget random Chinese words.  Sure, you think you're being deep because you have "Opportunity, fate, and karma" written on your arm.  But every Chinese person is laughing as they see you because you really have "Kung Pao Chicken, Does this tattoo make may wrist look fat, and I blow goats for fun and profit."

/Obviously, this does not apply to actual Chinese people.

I'm a member of the dwindling minority that believes nearly every tattoo is a bad idea, and nearly everyone looks worse with them than without them. But that doesn't blind me to the fact that TFA is written by a flaming douche.

Or maybe I'm just on the wrong side of Poe's Law again.

2. Is a "tribal" tattoo, cultural appropriation? What does the Social Justice League have to say about tribals?

geez, some blog about tat preference.  whoopty-do.  should have stopped at "People like to say that "A tattoo should have meaning," which is ridiculous-after all, most of the time the ink in question is worn on the skin of somebody living a meaningless life, working a meaningless job, and dreaming meaningless dreams."

but instead this was enough:

"In It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia-the only sitcom of the past decade worth watching"

You what I haven't seen? A tattoo that says: "Tattoo artists suck ass" or something along those lines.

(No, I don't mean that sentiment, just saying in this post-modern world of ours, not everything has been done.)

And I'd say you're in the majority these days.

Perhaps the reason I judge people with tattoos is because I can't understand the thought process that went into that decision. Especially when this person has chosen whatever tattoo as an image that they want to project to the world, forever.
But if it's someone I will be interacting with on daily basis, I will probably ask them about their tattoos to get that understanding.

"Hey, Superman, did you see Wonder Woman's new Tattoo? Looks like she got some kind of weird tribal tramp stamp on her back."

"That's not a tattoo, Bruce. A Super-cumshot is like a shotgun blast, and not even Amazonian skin is tough enough to withstand the jizz of steel."

I rather like the idea of turning the body into a canvas but I'm too indecisive to ever settle on a single image, hence no tattoos for me.
 
2014-06-14 02:39:01 PM  
I love Christmas Abbott, beautiful girl.  Great competitor.

But the tattoo makes her look like someone drew on her with magic marker and she didn't bother to wash it off.

It's not a deal breaker for me, but I'm not a fan.

From the page:

Am I A Racist? Depends On What You Mean By "Racist"

It used to be that a "racist" was simply someone who hated others for their skin color. By that definition, I am not, nor have I ever been, a racist.


So that's a yes, then.

I have nothing against tattoos one way or the other but I'm always shocked at how many people walk around with crap work. I mean, it's going to be on your body for a really long time - can't you put in a little time and effort to find a good artist?

A woman I work with has a tattoo on her shoulder. I don't know if it was just badly done originally or if it's worn really poorly, but even when sitting next to her I can't tell what it's supposed to be. So for all intents and purposes she's sporting a big bluish blob.
