Tats, Tramp Stamps and Self-Mutilation

August 25, 2010

Pardon me while I puke!

This rant is going under the category of “Stupid Humans” because, in my opinion, self-mutilation (permanently tattooing one’s self, or radically piercing one’s body parts) is one of the stupidest things a person can do! First of all, the process is a painful one. Tattooing involves pricking the skin thousands of times with an ink-filled needle in order to create a permanent, colored scar. Piercing sensitive body parts such as eyelids, tongues, lips, nipples, labia, scrota, penises, navels, etc. has got to hurt like a mutha! The holes never completely disappear either.

Secondly, tattoos are a lifetime commitment. Laser removal techniques can remove most of the color, but the scars will always be there. Tattooees are mostly teenagers and young adults who obviously have given no thought whatsoever to their future. What if tats go out of fashion as most fads eventually do? They risk being ostracized from society. What if a guy tattoos his girlfriend’s name and she later comes to her senses and dumps him? And what are their tats going to look like when the colors fade and their bodies become old, fat and wrinkled.  Yeah, that will look sexy.

And finally, it is disgusting to those of us who wouldn’t do such a thing on a bet. To Christians, these idiots are defiling the temple of the Holy Spirit. An owner of a business (other than a tatoo parlor) would be crazy to hire anyone who is visibly tattooed or pierced. I wouldn’t patronize a business with employees like that, which begs the question… how do these freaks intend on finding gainful employment now or in the future? I guess they could be telemarketers or coal miners.

How did society fall into this depth of depravity? In the good ol’ days, if you had a tattoo, you were either a military man who, in a drunken stupor, got one or two tats as a result of peer pressure… or you were a holocaust survivor. Somehow, in the last decade or two, such self-mutilation made its way into popular culture and has now become ubiquitous. These brainless morons are proud of their horrifying appearance, but maybe that’s what it’s all about – the shock value. Women’s tattoos have come to be known as “tramp stamps” because their body art might as well be advertising that they are tramps, whores, and skanks. And what does it say about the guys who find them attractive?

    lol! i’m sorry but i think the breast implants for the woman tattoo are so funny and quite creative. the naked old woman covered in tattoos is enought to keep me from getting them, to such an extreme anyway. i think a couple of well placed ones wouldn’t be so bad. i have designed one that i would like but since i have no tolerance for pain i’m sure it won’t happen.

    i know of a cardiologist office who will not hire anyone with any tattoo or piercing no matter how great their resume is. i think that might be going a little too far. you would really miss out on a great knowledgable worker who comes highly recommended just because of one or more tattoos? of course i am not talking about something like the photo above.

    balance is the key to everything in life. even the bible tells us that.

      I agree that a “well-placed” and tasteful (if there is such a thing) tat is one thing. If it can only be seen in the privacy of the boudoir, then it’s between you and your sex partner, but out in the real world, I don’t want to see it. As far as your comment that the cardiologist is going too far, I disagree. A doctor wants to convey a sense of the highest professionalism, and a cardiologist caters mostly to older people who would consider a self-mutilated nurse or receptionist (no matter how qualified they may be) highly UNprofessional. I would wonder what other kinky things they’re into. I wouldn’t want a carnival freak, satanist or Hell’s Angel drawing MY blood. You’re right, though, balance is the key… all things in moderation.

    You’re pretending to be an Alien and WE’RE the freaks? Cock..

      Yep! The difference is I was born the way I am. You obviously WANT to be a freak or you wouldn’t have disfigured yourself. Before you did so, didn’t you expect that people might be shocked and/or disgusted by your freakness? If not, you didn’t put much thought into it beforehand and that makes you an idiot. If you did take that into account and did it anyway, why do you protest when I call you what you are?

    I sent this to a friend whose son has done this as mine has. We discussed it yesterday.

      Thanks for forwarding this to your friend. Unfortunately, you’re a little late because the damage to her son (and yours) has already been done. Maybe it will prevent any future lapses in judgement on their parts, though. All we can do is try to talk some sense into them. Based on the ubiquity of tattoos, etc., they’re not listening nor are they going to.
