My youngest daughter wants to have a tattoo…I told her she has to wait till she is 18 to decide, hopefully she will change her mind till then. I have nothing against tattoos, it’s an art form, on your body. But the thing is, this body is going to become old, it’s going to sag in all the wrong places, it will crinckle…Imagine that body with a tattoo, or two,or three…Myself, i prefer painting on a canvas, not my body. Whether we like it or not, tattooing our body is a statement. I’m not going to say that i know all the reasons why people get tattoos, because i don’t, but i still prefer making a statement in another way..My daughter told me she can remove it by laser whenever she wants, so…why do it in the first place?
I wanted to get a tattoo once. Not for any reason, just a little tattoo on my wrist, to be different i guess…At the end i didn’t find it reason enough to go through with it!
I would like to know why some people decorate their whole body, what is the reason, is there a reason? Does a tattoo make you feel different? I know why my daughter wants to get one, she wants to be cool, she wants to provoke questions (a teenager, what do you expect?!)..Is it reason enough?
