Since getting my last tattoo (post here), quite a few people have been judging me and saying they think it’s a stupid design and I wanted to indirectly acknowledge it, I guess!
Yes, I have a band logo on my wrist. Yes, it means more to me than just the band. No, when I say ‘it’s personal’, I’m not going to say what it means to me because I explained it in a blog post and it sounds pretentious when I say it out loud.
What I think people need to come to terms with is the fact is that it doesn’t have to mean anything – tattooing is an art form and if someone wants to get a design on their body permanently:
- It isn’t your body and really won’t affect you that much, so your opinion is somewhat irrelevant even if you do feel inclined to share it.
- It doesn’t have to mean a damn thing – it could just look pretty or badass or make you feel cool!
- They’re prepared to go through a pretty high amount of pain to get this design; they’ve probably thought it through once or twice.
That’s where you’ll find me:
