Anybody here have tattoos?

Post by Abdul Alhazred » Sat Aug 10, 2019 4:30 pm

Here is a good explanation of what a symptom degeneracy you people are. :)

Individualism vs. Individuality
Theodore Dalrymple
t is a humbling tribute to my complete unimportance that, having written perhaps 5,000 articles in my lifetime, I have only once been the object of concerted attack or criticism. This is especially humbling in the era of the social media, when it is so easy to insult people publicly.

I’m not a big fan of tattoos. I’ve seen a few nice ones, but most look like shit. Kanji tattoos also strike me as silly. In case you’re wondering, no, Asians don’t walk around with English tattoos with misspellings of “Air” or “Luck.” They save those for their T-shirts.

A few years ago when I started to get back into scuba diving there were a couple of beautiful young Swedish women in my dive class in Thailand. (Happy!) One of them had ear problems and dropped out. (Sad!) She came back a few days later to meet her friend and showed everyone a massive tattoo that wrapped all the way around her arm from her wrist to her elbow. (A tattoo using Thai needles, what could possibly go wrong?) It was so thick it was hard to make out a design and looked more like she’d put on a glove and dunked her arm in barrel of black paint. I felt the same way I would if someone had vandalized a beautiful work of art. What a fucking waste.

Every time I see a nice lady with a nose ring, I immediately think of this:

Needless to say, it seriously puts me off. :mrgreen:

I think everyone thinks of that. I know I do.

It's like a signal isn't it? Like one of those leather collars with the ring.

Skin at 50 is not the same as skin at 18. A chick getting a tattoo at a young age has demonstrated a break with reality and is, therefore probably dangerous. Put it this way, a heart tattooed on a breast at age 18 will be a penis 30 years later.

Tattoos are a simple guide to mental stability invented by the patriarchy. Once you realize this, everything falls into place.

eta. The idea that "tattoos can be removed so getting one is cool" is a further test put out there by the IPC to test females.

Also, when I was young I bought a hounds tooth suit. I was able to ditch the suit when I reached the age of reason.

While your less fastidious contemporaries were all grungy hippies, you were quite the spiffaroo.

Oh. And this shirt and tie to go with it. :P

No matter what they tell you, it is hideous in real life. No one can pull this horror off in polite company.

I am not proud of this, Abdul, but facing one's failings is the first step to wellness.

eta. To this day I thank God that I never wore it to Y&R <brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr>

I know you're not Jewish, so I won't ask you if that was your bar mitzvah suit.

Did you wear it to the prom?

I am embarrassed to say that I got it at a shop in Astoria when I was in Grad school.

damn, I wish I had kept it. I could have used it as a life lesson for my daughters when discussing tattoos.

My daughter has one, monochrome. I refer to it as her "jailhouse tattoo". She threatens to keep me in my old age drugged so she can take my house and be my "caregiver". She's a nurse.

I raised them well. Brings a tear to my eye.

To answer the question, I don't have any. I guess I'm just another boring conformist.

Tattoos are like wives.

They get under your skin and stay there.
They fade and sag after a decade.
They become more embarrassing the older they get.
They are difficult and expensive to remove, and never really disappear no matter how much to ink over them.
They don't mean what you thought they meant when you got them.

I don't have any tats because I heard that if you have tats you can't be buried in a Jewish cemetery. I may not be Jewish but I don't want to burn any bridges.

It's true. You can ask any Jew.
