To me this is just crazy. Not in the “hey man, that’s crazy” but in the “that is certifiable crazy”.

I can’t begin to think of why anyone would do that.

Something is seriously wrong with that boy.

Well, I guess he is getting his 15 Mb of fame now. He is just taking the "hey everybody look at me" mentality to an extreme. Hope he knows that the circus isn't hiring anymore. Otherwise, I don't see many job interviews going well for him in the future.

Forget the kid, what's wrong with his parents? Seriously...

Between this one and the poor little boy made to be a girl...as much as I hate over regulation, these parents just don't seem "right" to me.

Not by a long shot.

I don't even understand why anyone would want a tattoo - but I can't really talk since I smoke cigarettes, which is arguably much more foolish...

I feel ink on skin is repulsive, Zamzow. Our bodies are meant to be observed in their pure state--not altered with markings and phrases.

My late wife had tattoos (ironically, it turned out she was allergic to the red ink in the one she got for me so she had to get it cut out). Our son has tattoos, as do most of their friends. I've had the thought cross my mind on occasion, but never long enough to actually do it. But to each his own.

I can't wait until people with tattoos start demanding legislative protection from discrimination.

It seems like that infamous “tramp stamp” has died off in popularity. I don’t see nearly as many women with one now compared to what I saw about 10 years ago.

Yes, but one can stop smoking!

I'm a product of my generation, where getting a tattoo was the realm of sailors, bikers, and other deviants. wink

Not to mention Biblically it is forbidden:

Quote

Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.


I think historically markings were reserved for savages and pagan rituals.


p.s. apologize for mentioning religious aspect. Man is free to do what they wish with themselves. I simply don't care for the markings myself.

Hmmm...I guess some of those Christian music stars are going to hell then since they have tattoos. LMAO

Heheh, Panzer. Christians, like the rest of us, can be hypocrits, too. Most are flawed, same as everyone else.

As for markings being an unforgivable sin, I don't think they are. But willingly persisting in pursuit of them certainly might hurt a personal relationship with one's Lord.


What I find interesting, is in the Church I'll often observe folks "picking and choosing" what they may deem as acceptable in the Bible and what they don't--thus deciding what or what not to follow.

We're going a bit far afield here, but there are two tracks for observing Christianity:

The first is the "gentile" way, which is 99.99% of everyone that is Christian, that holds the teachings of Jewish Law, without the letter. So wearing clothes of mixed fabrics is in, but adultery is still out of bounds.

The second is to acknowledge and accept Christ as the Son of God, but still uphold and observe Jewish Law. This is a rough row to hoe, as the Bible says that if one binds themselves to it, they're also held accountable for violating it.

The only penalty a Christian will receive for getting a tattoo is refusal by Jewish authorities to be buried in their graveyard.

I disagree, Dart. I view the act of cutting and painting one's flesh as worshiping an idol. After all, the markings and cuttings are permanent and lasting. Now, I could see how a fellow Christian might turn this around and ink a cross on them or biblical phrases. Once that happens, we enter a slippery area. Are they worshiping the Lord at that point, or are they worshiping their flesh as a canvas and as a way to make a statement.

I don't think any of this will change whether folks decided to ink or not ink. I prefer unaltered canvas, same as I love cheese and dislike salad. Purely a personal opinion and choice. Nobody else has to agree with mine or yours--that's what is great about this world.

I'm seeing a lot more sleeves, though.

Tats, like weight, can be a sensitive subject. So many people have them now, and so prominently visible.

As far as tattoos on women, I've figured out a politically correct way of expressing my preferences without hurting anyone's feelings (like it matters...last time I was on the market I was still riding the school bus). smile

I just say I'm attracted to 1980's fitness chicks, which implies a particular size, race, hair (full with natural color, including carpet which matches drapes), pierced ears (but nothing else), and no tattoos. It can also imply a cheery attitude (no feminazi) and overall a conservative personality and look. Leg warmers and high-cut leotards a plus, as is love of 80's Electronic/Pop (for aerobics classes) and Rock power ballads.

Younger folks (usually the ones with the most tats) don't know what an 80's fitness chick is, the others just roll their eyes to my not being progressive and moving on with the times. Bring on the 20 Minute Workout, baby!

I’ve nothing against tattoos in general, but I will say

I’ve never seen a tattoo that made a girl look prettier.

What gets me is how some seemingly straight Millennial chick have adopted the butch lesbian look; boycut, tatted and sleeved out, lots of piercings, big shoulders and arms etc.

I mean, what's the point?

A couple years ago one of my nieces was talking about how she was going to get a tattoo when she turned 18. Her mother wasn’t happy and made it known in a very Italian way. So as not to make it 3 adults ganging up on her, I asked why she wanted one. “To express my individuality” or something along those lines. I asked if she realized she was expressing her individuality by doing what “everyone” else was doing, the look on her face told me she hadn't. I then mentioned that tattoos as art is a relatively new concept, previously tattoos marked you as property or a member of an exclusive group. I’ve never understood the attraction, even at the height of my way excessive drinking while in the army I never even came close to getting a tattoo. I can’t think of a single thing I want on my skin for the rest of my life.
