Even I have to say that seems rather stupid, but it's also old news, just like the eyeball tattoos that were causing blindness.  I wouldn't do it, but I've really taken a very zen attitude of late, my motto being "I don't have to live in anyone's body but my own, nor do I have to live anyone's life but my own. And nobody else has to live in mine."  (This really comes from losing a bunch of friends over relationship decisions that I made, but are very healthy for me and my life, but it also comes from ownership of my own body and decisions about that as well.)

So, someone has tattooed teeth. Let them.  Why are we looking so closely at strangers, or judging our friends so much, anyway?

Not everyone can afford the diamond tooth implants.

I think it's perfectly reasonable to call someone an idiot for intentionally damaging the enamel of their teeth.

Perhaps people would be less inclined to do stupid things if the rest of us weren't discouraged from telling people they are stupid because feelings.
 
2014-07-21 11:01:05 AM  
Why not just glue a false front with the design on to the tooth? Something that could be removed without permanent damage to the tooth.

Yeah, I'm not sure if I buy this story.

I do think that tattoos will become less prevalent over the next 20 years as this generation of children grow up to rebel against their tatted up parents.

Watching college basketball/football games these days, it's the ink free guys that I notice and think, "Hmmm, that guy marches to the beat of his own drummer"

I agree as long as people who do such openly idiotic things don't complain about not getting a job and don't collect government aid.

OK, so I'm not going to tattoo my teeth, but I am getting an implant -- not really recommended, but better than the alternatives. The implant has two parts -- one that's permanently in your jaw, and the top part that literally screws into it. First thing I thought -- can I get interchangeable teeth? It'd be rad to swap it out for custom ones. Short answer: yes, but not really. It's fairly permanently attached.

I didn't notice that. I Googled it and apparently it's a decorated ceramic crown and not carved into the enamel.

If you need a crown and are young, why not. Still if you might be looking for a series job anytime soon, probably not a good idea.

And if you grind down a perfectly good tooth to get a crown, you're a dumbass.

How about we just don't comment on other people's appearances because it's common decency that anyone who isn't a raging asshole can easily comprehend?

I cannot imagine how miserable of a human being I'd have to be to walk around sharing my opinions on everything I didn't like about everyone I encountered.

Where I hang out, I swear I'm the last man person 40 or under who does not have a visible tattoo. I don't dislike tats but I never felt the urge to get one. It's the same way I feel about putting sugar in my coffee, or eating at Applebee's.

Am I the rebel now?

There's merit to the idea of not indulging people who are desperately trying to draw attention to themselves.

Faux hipsters.

I've been tattooing my teeth the all natural way, with coffee, for years.

Yes! As I said above, the people WITHOUT tats now stand out as the ones that buck convention.

It's true, and doesn't make me like mine any less.

I just hate when douchebags with some "tribal" or barbed wire arm band think it means we have anything in common and want to discuss "ink" with me.  Sorry, dude, not going to happen. To me, it's like saying "we both have jeans on. Let's discuss our denim."

Wow, some real ignorant misinformation going on in this thread.

Cosmetic tattooing for those with corneal pigmentation problems has been around for decades.  Those eyeball tattoos posted above are no different - and done with clean technique - they certainly do not cause blindness, infection, or even irritation beyond healing time (about a week).

Beyond that, however, what business is it of yours what others do to their bodies?  What a sad sack of shiat you must be to judge others by their appearance.

I don't care.  Make whatever body modification you like.

However, if the body modification you have chosen makes it difficult for you to get or keep a job in your chosen profession (arm sleeves aren't going to hurt a lot of people, for instance), then you can't get public assistance.

And things can change in the blink of an eye.

I had a good-paying job, but my boss was a dickbag of the highest order, and when I broke my wrist, he not only shuffled me onto disability (and had such a shiatty plan, I got $133/week) and then told me to "go on unemployment" after that because the healing time on two broken bones in the wrist on my dominant hand (including over two months in a cast from my fingers to my elbow) was too long.

My looks/choices didn't render me unemployed and struggling with debt thanks to medical bills, COBRA insurance, and just trying to get by... an unfortunate accident tripping over a farking rug did.  So because I have tattoos and such, I shouldn't take advantage of services I have paid into my whole life? I'm not getting responses to resumes, and people don't even know what I look like. This is the new norm, with keyword searches looking for exact matches and jobs re-listing on job sites without even interviewing/calling everyone who applied because they want the perfect candidate (which does not exist, ever, for anything.)

But of course, you knew that. A lot of people end up in bad situations through no fault of their own and our garbage economy in no way helps.

???

Not sure how to read this.

I was responding to the jackass that says you shouldn't get help if you've got tats or body mods that "prevent" you from getting a job or having a career.

I'm also of the mind that no one should have to worry about where they are going to live or how they are going to eat if they lose their job or have trouble getting a job.
