The Tattoo Craze

June 19th, 2013 by Michael Tabor


Hey guess what ? I don’t have a single tattoo nor did I ever want one. I am in the minority here. There is one industry that has not been hurt by the awful current recession and that is the tattoo business.


I was born in 1963 which makes me 49 going on 50 and when I was a teenager, only sailors, prisoners, and just really bad guys got them, now everyone has one, even grandma ( well sadly inasmuch as we are all getting older, there are a lot of grandmas and grandpas who listen to The Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, and may even smoke weed – lol)



What I find interesting is that a whole lot of women get tattoos – I just don’t get it. Surely an innocent rose on a gal’s ankle will certainly not affect her physical appearance in any sort of positive or negative way, but when a woman paints 50 % of her body I am just stunned and ask myself, why ? Another growing number of folks getting tattoos are black athletes, which actually in my opinion does make them look “badass” and cool.



So another simple and short blog – now WhaDaYaThink ? What do you think ? Do you like tattoos? I, personally think it’s old hat not unlike when men started wearing earrings,  you were making a statement – I am my own person, I don’t follow the rules, I’m rebellious, and I’m just simply anti – establishment. But listen folks, it’s OVER !!! When everyone has tats, you no longer stand out.
