It’s weird, tattoos have always been a far bigger deal to people who don’t have them than to people who do. I love it when some big fat mess of a bloke tells me it’s on my body for the rest of my life. It’s the same thing, isn’t it? Don’t get me wrong – it’s fine to be overweight, but it’s not all that different.
The argument ‘How’s that going to look when you’re 90?’ always amuses me. I mean, how’s my belly going to look when I’m 90? How sad is that, living your life in preparation of being 90, sitting around and gradually dying. How’s that going to look on your corpse? Let’s just worry about what’s happening now, shall we?
Anyway, I’m sure within five or 10 years you’ll have tattoo removal that’s instant.
Tattoos are often argued about over being either an irresponsible and permanent choice or as a personal expression of self. I personally find that tattoos are and can be very beautiful, yet I know others who think they can be frightening and intimidating. While there may never really be one constant opinion on whether they're good or bad, my real question is why is it that so many people care what other people put on their bodies? Why is the decision to get a tattoo seen as any more or less permanent than the career paths that we're told that we have to decide on at such a young age? We as people have a tendency to not mind our business about other people's life choices, but the obsession with a person's choice to get body art seems a bit excessive.
