On this site and out in the world when ever I see or hear anything having to do with tattoos it seems it is 90% of the time met with extreme negativity. Like tattoos make you instantly a criminal, slut, idiot, douche, or just trying to be cool. I just don't get why this is. Can anyone explain to me the reasoning behind this prejudice? Tattoos don't make me any less respectful, hard working, or honest. I feel a lot of people think because you have tattoos your a lesser person.

Some people are just incredibly biased. I know many people with tattoos and none of them are criminals or sluts for having tattoos. I know a lady at my office that has a lovely flower tattooed on her arm, and it is very beautiful.
A lot of people like to judge too, it's easy to say something mean about someone who looks different than them.
The sad fact about life and society is that people will judge you for simply looking different than them. I was in the bathroom of a restaurant a couple weeks ago trying to get my nose ring back in after it came out when I blew my nose. I've had my nose pierced for a few years now and that's all I have as far as piercings go. It's just a small stud, but as I was in the bathroom this lady comes in with her granddaughter and started staring at me as I was trying to get my nose ring back in. My mom was with me and told her that my nose ring came out and I was trying to get it back in. Then the lady made a rude comment "You should just leave it out, I don't know why people do stuff like that" I could have and probably should have told the lady off. I am 23 years old and if I want to stick stuff in my nose I have that right, I paid for it. But she was just being ignorant. She continued to tell her granddaughter to never do stuff like that because it hurts, it's the worst pain in the world. When I got my nose done it didn't even hurt!
So I hope when that girl grows up she becomes the most tattooed, most pierced girl with crazy colored hair :) That'll teach her grandma to make ignorant comments!
The next time someone makes comments to you, try your best to ignore them, or even call them out on it. People can be so cruel sometimes and think that it's okay to make those kinds of generalizations.
Hopefully in the future people are more kind and less ignorant!1
