So when someone has ink on their body that can't be seen on a daily basis, is that a cry out for attention too? I have my upper ribs done which someone might see 7/365 days a year. Is that a cry for attention or nah?
You are missing the point. If this fugger showed up at a job interview, would you hire him?
The answer is NO. He may have a Doctorate in his chosen field, but his appearance indicates that he has poor decision making skills. I am not saying that having a tat is a cry for attention, especially, as you stated, when it is covered. But more and more, I see many young people with tats/piercings that are visible...and on purpose, that IS a cry out for attention...........or just an indication of how stupid they are. if you can defend that idiot in this picture, then I have no argument with you.
I think it looks ugly. All tattoos are ugly but his is especially ugly. Of course it's his body and his money so he should do what he wants.
I don't see the point of tattoos. People say they represent something or are a reminder of something. Well there are plenty of people WITHOUT tattoos who stand for things and who have memories.
Attractiveness comes from physical health. Clear skin is attractive. Not skin with drawings all over it. Also I think it's mentally unhealthy to willing submit to pain for purposes unrelated to medical care. Tattoos and piercings are a lighter form of self-mutilation.
Although a very well written and thoughtful post, be careful, because you might insult a tat lover (or a graffiti enthusiast). That being said, I agree with everything you wrote. Tattoos, along with piercings, are nothing but a cry out for attention.
Your username is very representative of your mental capacity. Cg
Thank you, Mr. Coolin, for that insightful comment. I'll bet you have a tramp stamp, or teardrops below your eye, or a hockey puck in your ear. I guess that your mental capacity is much greater than mine. Lol. Cg.
