Hello humans of the internet! Today I wanted to talk about tattoos. Why? Why not?
I don’t know how you feel about tattoos. I’m not interested in changing your mind one way or the other on it. I’m pretty neutral on tattoos. A pretty tattoo is pretty art. An ugly tattoo is ugly art. And I’m purposefully using objective words because art is. If I don’t like a painting that’s not a bad painting and it might be someone’s favorite painting. Both thoughts are valid and neither is an indication of if the art is good.
Back to tattoos. Pretty much all my friends either have tattoos or are planning their first tattoo. To the point that I felt like I should want tattoos. I’ve thought of different things that I think I might want but usually I’d rather put it on a shirt or paint it. Honestly, I think it’s amusing that my whole extended family has assumed that I’d be the one to get tattooed (probably because of my tendency toward hair dye and piercings) but my siblings, brother-in-law, cousins, and 2nd cousins, (also my boyfriend) all either have tattoos or are actively planning one.
What got me thinking about tattoos this much, you might be wondering. Some time ago, my brother-in-law gave me a bunch of packs of temporary tattoos. I was bored so I put a bunch of them all over my body assuming that they would come off in the shower. Except they didn’t. Nothing has gotten them off. I read the package and it said they should last for 2weeks. So now I’m just going to walk around looking like I went to some kind of off brand Coachella.
Do you have any tattoos? Do you want any tattoos? Do you hate tattoos? Let me know.
