    It works both ways.
    The tattooed and the snob soon create "animosities inc".
    We most be tolerant, understanding, as difficult as this may be..
    We = everyone.
    And we are too insulated from each other.

    Sans the self inflicted tattoo Im betting your description could apply to probably 70% of the guys here at age 14 (and a few of the girls!).

    I guess that kind of attention is easier than actually doing something with your life that would allow for admiration....

    And I don't think getting a tattoo lowers your IQ, it just advertises to the rest of the world that your IQ is already sub par...
    I've never seen a tatoo that I found attractive. The ones on the legs always make me wonder "why". Hair, makeup, nailpolish are temporary, and usually make a person look better. I don't see that with tatoos. They don't make a person look better, even the permanent eyeliner is too dark usually. Now some of the hair colorings that are oviously unnatural looking don't make people look better, but a natural shade usually enhances ones appearance, which is a good thing to me. Being easier to look at can't be a bad thing.

    Tatoos are just ways of mimicking what other people are doing. When it's in it's in, and when it's out it's OUT.

    But.....if you like it, and it makes you feel better, happier, whatever, it's a good thing for you.
