arteater1 Excuse me, did I insult you for asking a question? My apologies, this wise-ass know it all would just like to have some questions answered.
What WOULD you see as something representing "love and kindness"?
Did you even read my comment? I listed several friends who have several tattoos gotten out of love for their families, and you compare them to people in prison??
A tattoo is more than the actual image, it's the meaning behind it that counts.
Tattoos themselves are works of art. Whether you like the design or not, you should appreciate the time and skill that the artist put into the piece. For the record, "the tattoos that...bring brutality and negative junk" are usually horribly tacky. Just because something is beautifully executed doesn't mean you have to love it, or it's message.
And do me a favor? Don't you ever presume to tell me what I do and don't like. No one speaks for me, but me.
Would be more impressive if someone would actually credit the images used. This snarling wolf photo has been copied and referenced so many times. I had hoped a "professional" tattoo artist would have at least done a quick search and offered some credit.
One day maybe I'll get to live in a world where love and kindness are symbolized more, rather than blood and guts and skulls and brains and bullets or spiders and every sort of macabre thing the mind can think up.
Please tell me why this is so pervasive with tattoo people, while most of us would never go for this style of art. Are tattooed people just angry and mad at the world is that why, do you think???
