You strike me as someone who would know this answer already. Tattoos with few exceptions are considered trashy. She needs you for proper guidance, and
this time that means NO.
So you dare call me trashy? What makes you the best judge of what is trashy or not? Just because you do not like a thing that some one does with no
harm to others doesn't give you the right to call them trashy. I make more money, am more popular, and am quite the parent and family guy. So because
you do not like tattoos I am now trashy. Bigots like you are the cause of global problems, you go around pushing your ideas and judging others just
because you feel different about things then they do. This in my book makes you no better than a racist. Spew your judgemental assbackward drivel else
I do not agree on tattooing minors. There are too many things that will change in their life over the next several years that may or may not make them
want to get tattoos. My personal opinion on tattoos and piercings, this coming from a shop owner and artist, is that if you want them then great, get
them, if you do not then great do not get them, but NEVER, EVER, judge me because I have them, and likewise if you do have them do not judge those
that don't. It is a personal choice, it is cool to be you weather you get tattoos and piercings or you do not.

Wow! For someone so sensitive, getting inked must have really hurt. Maybe you are so young that you don't recall it was only a few years when tats
took off mainstream. Every other frat boy had to get a 'tribal' armband, every other frat girl just had to have what is now nicely called a 'tramp
stamp'. For the longest time proper society has looked down upon tats. They were mostly found on prisoners, bikers, sluts, carnies - lowlifes, in
Get offended all you want. Other people ARE entitled to their opinion. You chose to get marked up, then live with it. But to be surprised that there
are people who consider tattoos to be the mark of lowlife scum really should not shock you. There are too many televised programs showing how law
enforcement photographs the many inkings of prisoners across America. If you want to lay down with the dogs, expect to wake up with fleas.
Do you REALLY think people don't judge you every time you step out in public? We are judged by others constantly, whether you like it or not. Who are
YOU to tell people not to follow human nature? I find this comical, immature and ignorant. Is it lonely for you, way up on that high horse?
The bulk of society does not have tattoos. And the concept of grouping the inked into the lowlife pile is the norm, not the exception. "Majority
rule" takes place when 51% or more agree to an opinion. Oh! I forgot! According to you, others aren't entitled to their own opinions. Enjoy being in
a minority, and have fun seething when people judge you a lowlife due to your tattoos, because they will, and there is nothing you can do about it but
get all ITG behind your keyboard.
As for "making more money" - ??? Making more money than whom/what? this makes no sense. I've known LOTS of drug dealers that made huge cash,
tax-free to boot. Big deal.
You consider yourself "more popular" - than who or what, I don't know. Popularity is not difficult, just pick up the tab for the beer. You can
And it does not take much qualifications to be a parent or family guy. The way you express yourself, you consider yourself to be quite good at most
things you do.
I'm not the hipster you are, but I am aware that there are other people in the world, some with views opposing mine. I welcome their thoughts and
opinions, whether they differ from mine, reek of bigotry, hate, whatever. These things exist and are real. And they exist for good reason. Stereotypes
come around from reality and observation of human nature.
Of the thousands of people that have come and gone in my life, the most damaged ones have had tattoos. they are not all damaged - some of them were
attention whores, some are ignorant young people following trends, and -gasp- a huge amount of guys who wish to high hell they never walked into a
tattoo parlor in their life. What did they all have in common? Being trashy.
Wake up. Grow up. People are going to judge you, like it or not, and they have been doing so for a long time.
PS: Had my mind blown a few years ago while reading a tattoo monthly magazine. This issue featured one of the guys from the sugary-sweet pop ballad
band, "Air Supply". This fellow was massively covered with some of the best ink in the country, and he participates in shows & expos. I got a kick
out of learning this musician is in real life so different from his stage persona. Contrast makes people interesting.
