“The thing women have yet to learn is nobody gives you power. You just take it.” – Roseanne Barr
Getting tattooed is kind of like going vegan – it’s something almost all of us have contemplated at least once or twice.
For many, it’s just a fleeting thought that’s dismissed as soon as we realize how much of a commitment it is. For others, it’s a decision made in college — that we may end up regretting later on. And finally, there’s the group of crazies that are hooked as soon as they try it.
Also – much like being vegan – tattoos can be super cool or super annoying. If you’re getting tattoos because they symbolize something meaningful to you… Godspeed! Your body becomes a beautiful temple that reflects your story and personality.
If you’re getting tattoos because it’s trendy, you’ll probably end up looking like a douche who spent way too much money on really crappy art.
Here are some of the dumbest tattoo trends that really just need to be put out to pasture and shot.
Being offended sure seems to be the thing America is best at. If we all could get paid to be offended, we would be thriving right now.
Vegans are offended if you eat meat. Evangelicals are offended if you’re gay. Liberals are offended when you use the word “retarded”. Christians are offended when you use God’s name in vain. Black people are offended if you rock dreads. David Wolfe is offended by gluten, and Bill O’Reilly is offended by facts. There is a LOT to be offended by which is why I pick my battles when it comes to this kind of stuff.
I choose to take offense to more important matters such as clothing. I’m strongly against the following: fanny packs, high-waste jeans, wedge shoes, tie-dye shirts, mid-calf socks, and visors. Do I have any real justification for hating these things other than they look stupid? No.
But here are some clothing items that may have actually had legitimate reasons for being retracted. Find out what was so offensive about them, then tell us what societal thing really grind your gears.
