Please Don't Do It!

Here is an interesting article on tattooing written from a Christian perspective.

I'd add one more reason to the 7 he already gives: tattoos are trashy, especially big ones and especially on women. The reason they are so popular nowadays is that our society and culture are going down the drain as reflected in our fashions and our entertainment. Not so long ago the only females who would decorate themselves with tattoos were prostitutes and/or those belonging to the criminal underclass. Outside of hipster circles it's still mostly lower class phenomenon.

Please don't do it!

  1. I just find tatoos plainly ugly. What happens to a rose tatooed on a 20 year old? Give it enough years and it turns into a wilting weed.

  2. What I find so weird is that in something like ten years it went from small inconspicuous things to full tattooed sleeves. Also the age of those choosing tattooing changed. It's one thing when someone young is doing it, after all young people have always experimented with risky behaviours, but nowadays you see grandmas and grandpas in a tattoo parlour. Teenage rebellion 50 years too late, it's just plain ridiculous.

  3. It's interesting that historically the cultures that engaged extensively in tattooing and excessive piercings were the primitive/pre-civilized savage societies. As you mentioned, it was popular in the criminal underclass---for the same reason. As for hipsters, they are savages too; but an effete, post-modernist version of them. Mentally, hipsters are on about the same level as African Bushmen.

    And, yes: women should never do it. Real men find them repulsive.

  4. I think it's OK on a guy if it's a small one, but the fact is that tattoos are unfortunately becoming mainstream, bigger and more hideous. From a distance those huge tattoos look like skin blemishes.

  7. Most shocking to me are women who have large tattoos on their décolletage. I cannot wrap my head around why any woman would ever choose to have this area permanently marked. I feel pity for women who have mutilated themselves in this way.

      That really makes no sense, conciderging that that particular body part ages very, very fast, especially if you get lots of sun.

  8. Haven't seen those yet, here it's mostly shoulders, ankles, sometimes lower back. Lower arm became really widespread lately. I think it started in the USA and then spread overall in Europe. I know that even some professing Christians are doing it yet the origins of tattooing are undoubtedly heathenish.

    I do not like tattoos -they look usually very untidy and not very well done- but I think they suit better on women than on men. Somehow I can understand that young women can be vain and misguided by their whimsies, but I really cannot understand why any man would like to decorate himself?

  10. It's because you see tats as decorative:) Tattoos are tribal in origin and were used in pagan rituals as a mark of passage, akin to scars. They were pretty much stamped out in Europe after it became Christian but started spreading again when Europeans came in contact with pagan cultures during their exploration travels. It was soldiers, sailors, members of criminal/biker gangs who began tattooing themselves. It's just another sign of rebellion against natural order to me, and the proof that it's so successful is a fact that many people see it just as a fashion statement, nothing else.

  11. It is not just the tattoos themselves it is what is pictured too!! Those ugly skulls and horrible half human half animal or worse faces. I see Mothers holding their toddler in their arms and what does that child see...you guessed it! They are then desensitized to such ugliness and think it natural to see it everywhere. Skulls and such are everywhere now on clothing for all ages too. Why?????? Sarah
