Are Tattoos Still Taboo...?

A1000MILESA1000MILES Posts: 13,293 ✭✭✭✭✭
My partna(white)...Got a tat of prayin hands on his neck...He said he lost out on a job opp because of it a couple weeks ago...The job was at a hotel...

Ion have any tatts...But it always seemed so stupid to me that some employers actually won't hire you for having visible ones and/or piercings...As long as they aren't offensive and the individual is qualified, I really don't see the harm...

Also...I notice a lotta dudes on here and in real life that look down on tatted up girls...Again, as long as they look nice and have a meaning, that's more of a plus than a minus to me...

What's your stance on tattoos?...And do you think the "taboo" perception will change in the future?...I know they're a lot more accepted than they used to be, but it still seems like folk get judged just for havin em...Is it really that big of a deal?

    They're not taboo...it's just that so many people have them now that they seem kinda played out.

    Nothing unique about them at all.

    So, you're mad because I quoted a post.....that included a scantily clad pic of you......that you sent to another man.....while both of you are supposed to be in committed relationships with other people?

    You can call me messy, but you can't say I was lying about anything I said.

    gtfoff my page and mind your fucking business old man.

    Oh wait, you have no business which is why you stalk various females on the internet tryibg to interject yourself into their business.

    Fuck off.

    Most of your business is public knowledge Kathryn.

    You should learn to exercise more discretion.

    You're too old to continuously find yourself in compromising situations.

    I'm extremely disappointed in your behavior and expect much better of you in the future.

    With compassion, concern, sincerity, and due diligence.

    I hope you die of old age tonight.
    June 12

    That's a horrible thing to say.

    I'm sorry you feel that way Kathryn.

    However, I've never heard of anyone dying of old age at 43.

    My words must've really hit home for you to want me to die tonight.

    I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings.

    Instead of wishing me death, your time would be better served reflecting on your past transgressions and thinking about what steps you can take to improve yourself.

    kat caught feelings
    June 12

    Indeed she did.

    Definitely not your usual white woman.
    June 12 Delete

    Titanagraphs but I caught feelings..ok.

    Type me another one pops.
    June 12

    You wished death upon me Kathryn.

    Solely because I quoted a post which featured you in a bathrobe with your privates partially exposed.

    A pic that would have never been publicly accessible had it not been for your carelessness and bad judgement.

    Essentially, you want me to die for your mistakes.

    Smarten up Kathryn.

    If anyone caught feelings it's you.

    This is just entertainment for me.

    @deadeye nah mate, fuck off, I literally hate seeing your name in my notifications because I know it's your FUCKING LIST. I'm tired of being @'d to some thread because of your shitty list, makes me just want to punch you in your fat fucking face.

    You're a digrace to creepset and 'mature' black men the world over.

    Fuck your entire existence.

    You are a plain idiot. Since you cannot give birth nor have a proper sense of enduring and suffering you cannot understand my post.

    @Westie has put her life on the line several times to give life. I wish I had an ounce of that courage, endurance and resiliance.

    having no tattos youll stand out more...I was playing ball and this one dude took off his shirt and had a fukin octopus tatood on his back and stomach...WHY THE FUK WOULD U WANT THAT?....shit oufemalestthand

    << no tats (Im thinkin bout it thouhg)

    Some people think I'm weird because I don't have a tattoo. I use to think about getting one and I'm glad I didn't do it. It look good on some females tho. Not the ones that over did it.

    I wonder who's the first culture that had tattoo's. Probably Africans.

    **looks it up**

    yeah, I was right

    cool....link to the article please

    To a point. If somebody got eminbright colors on their neck and all over their arms, It can instantly turn people off or surprise them. One time i saw a white dude on the bus with his name in cursive on his neck. Its ridiculous cause anybody in a crowd could yell out his name to be funny and he not know who it is.

    I would love to design tattoos...not so much doin the ink though

    If you're a follower (not a leader), and you wanna look "cool" like everybody else, you should definitely get a tattoo.

    It's the right thing to do.

    Tattoos, in and of themselves, are not taboo. To most people anyway.

    no not taboo at all. its actually more accepted mainstream than ever before. but yeah (most) employers are still going to look down on being tatted up crazy (neck tats, sleeves, etc etc).. and with the economy still bouncing back IMO employers are still looking for excuses not to hire folks (so being tatted up like weezy aint gon help the cause)

    too each its own, I'll turn 30 in the 2013 and I'm tat free. i think tats can be dope, but now its just so many people getting them just to fit it, forgetting the intented originality..it kinda loses its luster IMO..

    as foolish as he looks now...just imagine him at 50 or 60yrs old with lips, music notes (and what looks to be the white house) and diamonds tatt'd on his face

    Tattoos in general are not taboo anymore, however I think face and neck tattoos still carry a bit of a stigma.

    I have a sleeve and no one says anything about it.

    Shit like that is over the top, especially since most of it prolly means nothing...But if he can do a job better than someone else, why should he honestly not be hired?...His face ain't got shit to do with the niggas at Six Flags gettin on a ride...
