Tattoos - What's the Point?
A number of people have walked into Starbucks sporting tattoos. With one notable exception they all looked awful.
I really can't understand tattoos.Why pay money for excruciating pain only to look worse than before?
The only thing I understand less than tattoos is smoking. Why pay lots of money to puff your lungs out and die a horrible death? At least crack addicts get high I'm told. Global legislation is clearly needed in this area. Smoking should be banned everywhere apart from in France because the French manage to look cool when they smoke.
Everybody else just looks like a red neck.
Sadly there are times when I find myself surrounded by people with tattoos clutching mitfulls of dollars for Marlboro Lights. There are the times when I remind myself never to go back to 7-Eleven,which is misnamed because it appears to be open all night.
I'm not totally anti tats; occasionally you see a tasteful one - a butterfly on a shoulder or a celtic design.
But all too often they tend to blur into a big green smudge on over white skin. Like a bruise. And who wants to wear their hurt on the outside?
