Re: What will tattooed people do when the tattoo FAD ends (all fads do come to an end)
if you 'need' more than one, you're not doin' it right .

had to make my own in the end.

went through books for FOUR HOURS, ALL the tatscats, and found NONE that represented me. Not even close .

And that's the point, HA pun, it dosen't change, YOU DO.

so that ONE tat, IS you.

after all you WILL run out of skin eventually, guess you could do your kids, but that would be silly.

so it is the one and only.

Highly recommended.

You'll know yourself, or not

Only those who got tattoos to be a part of the fad will be affected.

There was a tattoo documentary that featured a surgeon who had an ongoing intricate back piece project with Paul Booth.

Tattoos are not solely for the lower class.

This stupid fad can not end soon enough. I am shocked that so many people do not think of limiting consequences, such as career ops or dating pool . Then again, idiots still start smoking with all the dangers. Hmmm coincidence or not but many tat people are also smokers. Sounds to me these are the insecure of our society that follow the crowd.

A 'FAD'? I dont think so. My dad is in his 80's, got a tattoo in the Navy when he was in his teens.

Fast forward 2012, one of his grandchildren wanted to get a tattoo and he threatened that they would no longer be welcome in the house to visit if they did.

What a bunch of crap. I mean how do you fight that kind of double standard?

Besides, I never found a single word or image that I wanted to add to my body, or that I even felt could could describe me (let alone whether I would want to allow everyone else know it.)

Re: What will tattooed people do when the tattoo FAD ends (all fads do come to an end)
I live in Phoenix Arizona ( which must be the bad tattoo capital of the western USA ). Everyone seems to have not too great tattoos. I see tons of people with very amateur, crooked, and even misspelled low quality examples plastered all over their out of shape bodies.

At some point this fad will end, just like all other fads ( tongue piercings, eyebrow piercings, mulletts, hula hoops ) Once the fad is over there will just be a bunch of dopes with crappy looking embarrasing tatoos.

Is there a good way to invest in tatoo removal to financially cash in on all the lemmings with bad tatoos?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1085781

No, I am actually a non-conformist, so I wouldnt wear the crappy styles of clothes sold at malls, and as well I definitely wouldnt wear a crappy semi-permanent tattoo.

I just wanted to get a reading of what y'all think about tattoos.

I totally understand how someone could desire to get a tattoo, but it seems like most people get butt-ass ugly poorly executed, nasty looking ones (like all those hideous tramp stamps ), and IMHO probably most are people are getting them to follow the pack because its "cool"
 Quoting: InkyStinky 838240


What's it anyone's business anyhow? Don't like it, don't look! Simple as that.....unless you're one of those hypocrit christians who love to speak about being non-judgmental, while you put someone else down...tsk..tsk...

Have no tats, don't want tats, but not gonna judge someone who has them, no matter where they are, and I'm CERTAINLY NOT a bible thumper!

Re: What will tattooed people do when the tattoo FAD ends (all fads do come to an end)
OP

Read some history. Tattoo's are about as faddish as religion. That's to say the the art/act of tattooing has been around for 1000's of years.

Now I will agree, some people get tattoo's for the wrong reason and there are some very tacky tattoo's on some very unflattering bodies, but so what, why does anyone else give a damn?

There are more pressing issues to worry about than what someone wants to put on their own body.

Re: What will tattooed people do when the tattoo FAD ends (all fads do come to an end)
Haha, so true..

Just like fashion, trying to create an image of yourself. Either for yourself or for other people, shows personal insecurities..

kind of like pack mentality..

It's for people who find it difficult to create their own meaningful personality..

So to try and fit in they label them self as a Rocker, Biker, Steam punk, Mod, Emo, Raster etc. The list is endless..

Tattoos are just something to hide behind.. Something that diverts attention away from their true self..

How come you only see the lower working class with tatoos? You never see a lawyer, engineer, upper management, doctors, etc., with tatoos. Just those who lives are controlled by the mass media.
 Quoting: RD47blog 1089242



Really? Do you get out much? I have worked with lawyers for 15 years and about 75% of them had tattoos, just not ones that you can't hide. Also, who says that doctors, lawyers, etc. aren't controlled by mass media?

Tattoos have been popular since the 60s at least. If it is a 'fad' it's a hell of a long lasting one.


Actually, since prehistory.
