Over-all most people that get tattoos realise they cause offence to certain sectors of society.
It is bleeding obvious to anyone with half a brain-cell tattoos are synonymous with criminal fraternities, mostly follow trends that render arguments “It’s an individual thing” baseless.
Cutting to the chase: great leaders and inventors with coverable tattoos are few and far between.
Most people who opt to get a tattoo are bright enough (room temperature?) to place it in a location on their body that can be hidden from public view as the situation dictates.
Like say if you had a decent job, have to interact with customers who weren’t part of a sub culture and greater society.
Following the thread that tattoos are symptomatic of outside trends e.g. some numbskull bass player from their fav band has one, invariably we expect to see sheeple follow what they perceive as fashionable or cool.
So like day follows night, over just the last decade we now have people – not individuals – adorning themselves with neck tattoos as spotted on a music video, internet, mag etc.
Until recently neck-tattoos were the defiant F.U badge of street gangs.
Tragically we now see middle-class kids with them.
These trend-seekers, attention deficit sufferers think they look cool or tough with their neck tattoos when to the rest of society it yells, via a large megaphone “I’m a loser.”
Let me prove this brutal statement succinctly.
Tell me one great person from the 7 billion on this planet that has a fucking neck tattoo?
Taps fingers on the table await an answer he knows will never come.
