Piercings and Tattoos Seem so Stupid to Me
    #8168641 - 03/19/08 09:21 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

To me it says

"I am so influenced by some dipshit fad and what others are doing that I am willing to put holes in my skin and even permanently etch my skin with ink."

For some reason I wanted to say that.

I definitely see it for piercings
not so much for tattoos
if your getting a tattoo and being somewhat logical about it, you realize that it will be there your whole life. so hopefully you get something that will always have meaning to you

I think tattoos and piercings look pretty good when you are a teenager, but man, when you hit 30, you look like a total douche.

Kat Von D looks pretty good now, but when she gets older, it aint gonna be pretty.

I see it the same way one might see any item of clothing or accessory. Whether you agree or not, for some people it helps define them in a world of over 6 billion people. Everyone is striving to be unique in their own way. Judging them for what they like on their own body is the same as judging them simply because of the way they dress. There's always more to any tattoo or piercing, and if all you can see is "omg fad" you're not worthy of judging anyone.

I mean you seem like a chill guy but judging someone based on their appearance, which is essentially what you are doing, is always a step towards ignorance. It's just as bad as judging someone for doing drugs such as shrooms or pot, or in some cases judging someone based on the mistakes they've made in the past.

I find them hot.  :shrug:

Some people find them appealing, and some people like how they look with them.

Why was that directed at me
I was just making the observation that piercings do tend to be a fad type thing. Is there really anything more to a piercing? to me it just screams look at me and my alternative look
partially because I've known multiple people who have had one at a point in their lives and taken it out after they grew out of whatever they were digging or whatever

Quote:

Tattooing has been a Eurasian practice at least since Neolithic times. Ötzi the Iceman, dating from the fourth to fifth millennium BCE, was found in the Ötz valley in the Alps and had approximately 57 carbon tattoos consisting of simple dots and lines on his lower spine, behind his left knee, and on his right ankle. Other mummies bearing tattoos and dating from the end of the second millennium BCE have been discovered at Pazyryk on the Ukok Plateau. Tattooing in Japan is thought to go back to the Paleolithic era, some ten thousand years ago. Various other cultures have had their own tattoo traditions, ranging from rubbing cuts and other wounds with ashes, to hand-pricking the skin to insert dyes.




Quote:

Evidence suggests that body piercing (including ear piercing) has been practiced by peoples all over the world from ancient times. Mummified bodies with piercings have been discovered, including the oldest mummified body discovered to date, that of Ötzi the Iceman, which was found in a Valentina Trujillon glacier. This mummy had an ear piercing 7–11 mm (1 to 000 gauge in AWG) diameter.[1]

In Book of Genesis of the Bible 24:22, Abraham's servant gave a nose ring and bracelets to Rebekah, wife of his son Isaac. In Exodus 32, Aaron makes the golden calf from melted earrings. Deuteronomy 15:12–17 dictates ear piercing as a mark of slavery. Nose piercing has been common in India since the sixteenth century.

[edit] Worldwide

Ear piercing, of either or both ears, has long been practiced by men in many non-Western cultures. Other forms of body piercing have also existed continuously for as long as ear piercing. For example, women in India routinely practice nostril piercing, and have done so for centuries.





A fad? :lol:

Perhaps this new trend with piercing every possible location on your face you can find... and getting tattoos of meaningless crap and cartoon characters to be "cool", is stupid.

But both tattoos and piercings historically go back thousands upon thousands of years.. many cultures use them for spiritual purposes and rites of passage into the society or clan. To suggest that this is some sort of fad, or that every tattoo and piercing is stupid.... is a stupid generalization.

For me it's not about fitting in with a fad it's about piercings and tats being visually appealing, especially when tattoos have meaning. I see piercings as more of a release through pain kind of thing. And then you get to sport your medal as a testament to the pain you endured, although that pain releases a lot of pinned up aggression and negativity.

I don't know about the whole fad thing...
but I just think it's completely bizarre that we poke holes in our bodies and put metal through the holes.
Just so... weird.

Probably not the weirdest thing we do, for sure, but still...

Tattoos make more sense to me than makeup.

I don't have piercings anymore. But I see them as a perfectly normal thing. I guess it's just perspective.

Some cultures, piercings are an integral part of their culture.

The pain is half the fun.

These tattoo guns nowadays are nothing.
Try a traditional tattoo... where they use a sharpened piece of bamboo and a hammer.. and chisel the design into your skin, which they then pour ink into the channels. That was how all tattoos were done before electricity.. and most traditional Japanese tattoos, as well as many South American tribes continue to this day.

People are weird when they want to poke holes or color their skin - but not as weird as "two girls, one cup"

it's definitely not a fad.

personally i dont have any tattoos or piercing and dont plan to get any...but i am attracted to girls that have piercings for some reason. when girls have tattoos though, i find it unattractive and tacky.

It's body art. Botton line is it's their body.
You have your own body you can do whatever you want with.
