I went to the beach on memorial day, and I swear, there wasn't a single twenty-something without a tattoo.
Seriously, now if you want to make a "statement", DON'T get one.
yu're spot on there leon .. it's merely a trend ... all i hear from people is i'm an individual .. but then they go out and do what all the other sheep are doing .. get a silly tattoo .. it was the same with piercings about ten years earlier .. but at least they heal if you stop wearing the dumb jewelry ... the worst thing about tattoo types is the way they feel the need to bore you with the stupid stories that prompted them to get the tattoo in the first place ... ' i had this tatt' of a poo done on the top of my butt to signify my child using the potty for the first time .'.. 'i had this set of false teeth tattooed on my chest in memory of my grandad.'... it's all self indulgent tripe .. in twenty years time , teenagers will be saying to the tattoo wearers .. 'hey you're old because you have tattoos ... they went out of style twenty years ago.'.. what you going to do then ?
