Airplay. Let me clear up a few of yoru misconceptions about what I am saying.
- I'm not sensitive or defensive on this topic. I just don't like people who have no clue about tattoos giving their advice like its golden, or people that hate them, acting like their opinion is the only right one.
- As for the statement on hepatitis, it was inaccurate, because depending on the type of situation one lets themselves get into, is it only 'accurate'. His statement generalized EVERY possible way of getting a tattoo could catch you Hepatitis. I proved otherwise.
- Temporary Tattoos, and are they cool enough. I for one, did not get a tattoo because I thought it wa simply "cool". Temp tats might be fine, but they come off, they fade or start to peel and look like shit. When one gets a tattoo, its because they want it to last, not stay on for a day or two. Temp tats are fine, for those nto ready for the needle.
Your ramble about "making sure" about the tattoo you get doesn't address what I said about people or situations changing. What is right today may not be what you want tommorow...so why make such a permanent mark on your body?
Ramble? Whatever man. As for making sense about changing people....that is WHY when one gets a tattoo that are sure they are getting what they want...for life. See, I have 6 tattoos, and every single one of them has a meaning to them. So when I'm 30, 55, 72 whatever, my tattoos will be relevant, because they will represent something in my life. If you are ignorant to get something that is meaningless or you will not like 20 years down the road, that is a personal problem, and not a problem of the tattooing communicty as a whole. Don't judge a whole group of people on individual ignorance.
Not missing out on a job? What if your tattoo *isn't* covered or concealable? Your arguments are reminicsent of that adolescent argument my niece attempted when asking her mother for permission for a tattoo....just contradiction. Poor contradication at best.
Am I stuttering when I say, IF you get a tattoo, and it IS covered by something as simple as a T-Shirt, then you are fine. IF one is that worried about being judged by tattoos for a job, then it is that indivuduals responsibility to make sure they get there tattoo in a spot that can be covered up, if not, it is that one persons fault. Its not a tough concept to grasp. And there is no contradiction to my statements. If someone gets tattoos all over the place, they KNOW how will they will be judged after the fact.
Funny, you are very offended by SST757's comments but you seem to be making similar statementsm, saying if you get a tattoo, be very careful about infections, make your choice carefully, do not get inappropriate tattoos that society may object to, and ensure its concealable...I guess that leaves gonig to a hospital and getting a little heart tattooed on your butt....
My statements about tattoos are my personal veiw point on them. I have no problem with the girl who has one on her ankle and i have no problem with the dude that is covered in them. Being careful about where you get a tattoo and such is common sense, but in my 26 years on earth, I have learned common sense is not a gift everyone enjoys. Inappropriate tattoos, I never mentioned anything inappropriate, and if its covered, then who cares? Well except you.
Jared, right back at you buddy. The BMezine site is great, and I was goign to post a link, but forgot too. I also think tattoos on chicks are sexy. Not all of course, but location and design and such do play a part. It's nice to see that at least some people get it.
