Tattoo's are an expression of self at the moment in time they are applied. Like a person takes a picture to memorialize a moment in their lives, some
people tattoo images that define a strong link they have with a person, issue, home, state, or other meaningful element in this mortal coil. I do not
have a single tattoo anywhere on my body. I am autistic as such the idea of submitting myself to the pain of tattoo application is not at all
appealing to me. That said as an autistic man I fully understand the allure of tattoos because; I think in pictures. Whenever I see a tattoo I
instantly want to study it, because the person is finally speaking about themselves in a purely picture based visual medium I understand.
I totally and intensely love tattoos on anyone. My only problem with people who have tattoos is that they place them on bodies that they are
uncomfortable about then they get mad if I stare at a tattoo to see what it says or means. I enjoy the patterns color and symbolism of tattoos. My
problem comes only when the few insecure self conscious people get tattoos when they really shouldn't. Tattoos are art that when visible you have
elected to share with the world. You should be proud of your tattoo as I would be.
My name is Wolf and yes I love you guessed it WOLVES! A Wolf is the ONLY tattoo I would ever get on my body because; I love Wolves. Were I to have a
tattoo of a Black Wolf on my body I would want the world to enjoy him with me. I would pick a Wolf drawing that expressed my essential essence so to
look at my Wolf tattoo you would come to know what is best about me. Like the original poster, were I to get a tattoo of a Wolf on my body I would be
so proud of him, that no person living or dead in any company or human endeavor could make me regret getting my Wolf tattoo. I would place my Wolf on
my lower arm because I want him seen for to hate him is to reveal a mind closed to my true self.
As an autistic man who also has thirteen disabilities I learned early that the world is full of fools that are afraid of everything. Many people were
& are afraid of me because; I am autistic. Growing up my autism looked so much like mental retardation that NO EMPLOYERS would hire me. I am an old
coot now so I am talking looking for jobs in a time before the Americans with Disabilities Act. I got turned down for every job I applied for in the
olden days when employers had no problem telling me they would not hire me due to my obvious disabilities. I heard so many jerks call me retarded and
worse to my face when applying for jobs but I never gave up trying to work.
I am the WOLF and I will follow my passion to work as a productive citizen to the ends of the Earth if need be. It did not happen over night but my
Wolf centric nature helped me develop an understanding of my autism in ways helped me to survive then thrive in the workplace. I share all this so
you know I have a deep intimate and abiding love of WOLVES. I would never let fools steal the joy I would have with a highly visible tattoo of a wolf
on my body. My love of Wolves was the gift of pure joy God gave me that helped sustain me through the darkest moments alone with autism and thirteen
disabilities. I'd want people to see my Wolf tattoo if I could get one because; I'd want them to share in a WOLF inspired joy that is uniquely
Getting inked is not the act of fools, tats are a reflection of sensitive people who share with you in picture form the intimate joys of their lives.
Even thugs criminals and the most base evil doers have one tiny spark of humanity in that tattoos reveal the true states of their black troubled
hearts crying to be heard. Tattoos say in pictures what criminals and weak minds are too timid to say in words or action. For good people tattoos are
the embodiment of the joyful moments that have shaped them. Tattoos tell a life story of their wearer as vivid high points and low points that offer
keen insight to their souls. To reject tattoos out of hand is to return a gift from the heart unopened which hurts genuine souls. This man has an
awesome work ethic, he passionately loves home & family his tattoos tell this story far better than any soulless form, if only the company men had
eyes to see and hearts to hear. The good qualities of this man's soul are laid bare. Ohio with its clever wording, his daughters name & a broken heart
speaking of love lost, its energy repurposed in renewal. There are NO NAZI symbols, just a nice sensitive man sharing his heart on tattooed hands. In
this man good is being trampled by the beast of corporate conformity but you will survive and prosper never give up.
I never gave up. Today I have a job where I am valued respected & well paid. If you never give up you too will know success far greater than this puny
job made for automatons. You did not get this job because you are better than that. God Bless. You & your family are in my prayers!
