As if pj bottoms aren't bad enough I once saw a woman at the grocery store wearing an adult onesie complete with hood pulled up over here mangled mess of hair. She was with her well groomed daughter who was obviously uncomfortable that her 40 something mother would wear a pink onesie grocery shopping.

I have one small tattoo and only a handful of people have ever seen it, I had it done for me not for the general populus. My daughter has a huge ugly black tree growing up her side and on most of her back, shes getting married next year and keeps sending me photos of dresses she likes. IMO nothing will look good with that monstrosity showing so I keep offering to send her to Vegas.

Velor pants with writing on ... yes I saw a lady in Home Depot wearing a pink velor suit with PINK! on the butt, she had a small pompom of hair dyed pink right on her crown and was carrying a poor Maltese which also had a small pompom of hair dyed pink too .. this lady was about 70 :\

What I mean is their tats are not going to look the same when they are wrinkled and saggy. Yes, the skin will do that on its own. But I would rather have plain wrinkled skin than inked wrinkled skin. Just my preference. :-)

Try seeing those clowns run in those things. They look like a bowling pin rocking left and right after a bowling ball swipes it. ("Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down.")

I honestly don't see why people have such a hangup over tattoos. Some of them are quite beautiful, and often have personal significance behind the design.

Because it's different and makes people uncomfortable. For some reason there will always be a subset of people who go out of their way to put others down because it makes them feel better about their own decisions.

I mean, I couldn't care less if a person has a tattoo or not, I don't treat them any different but apparently there are a lot of people out there who like to judge and treat others differently based on what they look like. I've always gravitated towards the 'weirdos' in society because they don't judge and make far more genuine friends.

So my mom HATES tattoos. She has been training me since I was little by calling them "gross." And of course, she thinks they look "terrible" when people get old.

So of course I have been brainwashed by my mom.

The thing is, I know I wouldn't get one (um I don't like pain), but 90% of the people I have met with tatts are nice, so why should I care. No one is forcing me to get one.

Some are awesome, some suck, but at the end of the day it is your prerogative and your cash.

But there is a thing I worry about, although this is slowly changing, is how one might be perceived if they had a tatt. And obviously my own opinion is shaped by my own ethnicity. The world it completely unfair. A white person with a tatt will be perceived as "alternative" or "hip." And at the end of the day you will be taken seriously. A non-white person (black, latino, or darker asian like Samoan) will be perceived as trashy/gang banger/ghetto etc. I mean we all know what happens when black people wear hoodies. If I got a tatt and decided to wear a long weave, people would perceive men wildly differently than they do now.

I hope that I can see a day where people with tatts won't be judged because they have a tatt.***

*** Unless you are one of those people with the random chinese/arabic/sanskrit/whatever characters tattoos that you hope say your name/peace/freedom or whatever, but actually says "dummy doesn't know what this means."

I don't think some people get it. I don't think people with tats are "weirdos!" Matter of fact, it's such a cliche now to get a tat that those of us who are ink-free are the freaks.

In terms of race/ethnicity and tats, that is a good point. A BP with a tat will seem low-class but a WP is just artsy. I don't think tats are very popular amongst Hispanics but someone correct me if I am wrong. Same goes for Asians (including Middle-Easterners). I don't think tats generally look good on BP, especially if their skin is a darker shade. The ink tends to look more blotchy.

This girl was not a toddler; she was of grade school age. What parent allows their kid to leave the house in their jammies?!

2. Get tats. I know, I know, I am a weirdo for not having any. Most people from 18-50 have them. I am 47 so I still have a few years to "fit in." But I find them trashy as hell, although occasionally I see some artsy types who have sleeves of tats and it seems pretty natural for them to sport tats. But tramp stamps? How about neck tats? Nothing screams 'prison industrial complex' better than that. And I finally saw it all last night: a dude with tats all over his face.

3. Girls (and even women!) with PINK or JUICY written across their butts: what is UP with that? So you WANT me to look at your azz? Really?
1. Some folks are idiots, have no upbringing, or just don't give a darn how they look.

2. Live like you want to live, but... tattoos used to be a token of individuality but now they're just being like everyone else. I prefer being a "tattoo virgin" and have none. It sets me apart and allows me to express my individuality.

3. If you wear a size 1, maybe you can get away with that. Otherwise it just makes your a** look huge. Hey, if that's how you want to look, go right ahead... maybe some people like being ridiculed.
