Good article. I like anybody who isn't afraid to write stuff that is likely to be unpopular or controversial.

My take is that all tatoos are basically attention whoring. If you are uninsteresting as a person, no tatoo will fix it and in fact will make matters worse overall.

This said, I also find tramp stamps on a tramp's back to have a certain allure of kink to them, I don't know exactly why. I think those are pretty much the only ones I could understand.

Small comment about tolerance.

I think it is part of the reason that the world continues to turn to shit. Too much tolerance.

In the sense that people have grown afraid to speak their minds so as to not risk offending someone or being perceived in a negative way.

Criticism is good. It's good for the individual, it's good for society.

The woke have corrupted many things including this. Now everything is dismissed as "shaming", while ignoring the very core of the criticism.

fat shaming, tatoo shaming, etc. insanity

One of my favorites: a tattoo on a young pretty woman looks as good as a bumper sticker on a ferrari

As a tattooer for twenty years, I couldn’t agree more. Damnit.

Me and my brother were talking to each other

'Bout what makes a man a man

Was it brain or brawn, or the month you were born

We just couldn't understand

Our old man didn't like our appearance

He said that only women wear long hair

So me and my brother borrowed money from Mother

We knew what we had to do

We went downstairs, past the barber and gymnasium

And got our arms tattooed

Welcome to my life, tattoo

I'm a man now, thanks to you

I expect I'll regret you but the skin graft man won't get you

You'll be there when I die


My dad beat me 'cause mine said "Mother"

But my mother naturally liked it and beat my brother

'Cause his tattoo was of a lady in the nude

And my mother thought that was extremely rude

Welcome to my life, tattoo

We've a long time together, me and you

I expect I'll regret you but the skin graft man won't get you

You'll be there when I die


Now I'm older, I'm tattooed all over

My wife is tattooed too

A rooty-toot-toot, rooty-tooty-toot-toot

Rooty-toot-toot tattoo too

To you

Radio London reminds you, go to the church of your choice!
