    Let's hope that this trend doesn't catch on.

    I knew it's shocking, but, believe it or not, he's a criminal.

    These are the kind of people who throws gasolene on the fire that is close minded people who think that everyone with tattoos are criminals.

    However, in the kind of criminal sub-culture where people like him moves tattoos are both a sign of allegiance and a sign of protection (as well as violence in case you run into the wrong people). I'm not saying that it's a smart thing to do, but if you live a life in which your life and death depends on allegiances I can definitely understand why you'd get something like that tattooed on you.

    Then the whole racist theme is a whole other thing, but that's getting into politics so I'll steer clear of that.

    Though, for argument's sake:

    I know it's shocking, but believe it or not, none of those are criminals. :p Some are even some of the kindest, most down to earth, people you'd ever come across.

    (though, as for swastikas I will mention that the person in the last link is not a racist, his tattoos are about reclaiming the original meaning of the swastika, which needless to say has nothing to do with the events before and around the second world war)

    Are some people seriously still shocked by tattoos and body piercings? It's pretty common-place now. I only know a couple people (besides myself) without at least one. That includes the top sales people and executives at my office (a high-end international corporation)

    Yes, in a way I am still shocked. What shocks me is the conformity of it all. Practically everyone has a tattoo now. This is one reason why I shall never get one. It's just too commonplace. I will never conform.

    Actually, the tattoos don't disturb me half as much as this gent's complete lack of eyebrows. Now *that's* overtweezing.

    I admit, I'd give that guy a double take just for the ears (and lack of eyebrows).
    I'm with you though, I like being one of the few tattoo-free people around. It's unique.
    When I was in high school I wanted to get completely covered from head-to-foot. I wanted the Eye of Horus around one eye lid. I thought that way I could get paid to stand around Coney Island instead of working. Turns out plenty of people have sleeves and what-not now, so it wouldn't have been very lucritive.

    Wow, the jigsaw tattoo Mr Pumpernikel posted is pretty cool, I've never seen that done before.

    Anyway, I didn't mean to make light of the crime the hate-inked guy committed. Being a kid in the late 70s-80s I'm always more shocked by peoples actions than their appearance.

    His name is The Enigma. He was on the X-Files once. And the lady is Katzen.

    I know a lot of trivia...

    Whatever his reason, tatooing is an art form. If you can't do it, don't say a word against it. Some of those other tattoo photos are amazing. It's like the face painting that I've seen kids with, only this one is perminant. I'm not a tattoo person, but those images tell some fascinating stories.

    How does this relate to the Fedora Lounge anyways? Anyone for a fedora man tattoo on their wrist?

    As usual Happy, you said it right. Do we really need another thread on how tats are creepy/of the criminal element/ for bad folks/ negative/stupid?

    No!

    :eek:fftopic: Conforming to the nonconformist. Everyone confirms with someone. I remember back in the 80s/90s in High School, the kids that dressed in dark clothes, the grandmommas of todays "goths", who were the nonconformists, I would always think that they are missing the point, they are conforming with the others.
    So you are conforming with the others who have no tats. :p

    Ah, but I am in the minority, so verily I am a non-conformist. Also, I'm not in the habit of watching television, so I am generally clueless as to exactly how to conform. :)
