What do people say?...
Tattoos seems to be the in thing for the young girls of this generation.
Women in general love to adorn themselves with colourful designs on their palms and hands by application of herbal pastes during festivities and important functions. But, those designs will fade away shortly and are viewed by all as an acceptable traditional custom and a passing fancy.
Tattoos involve pain and patience and more importantly stay on the skin almost for life. In order to look novel and appealing, sometimes names of the lovers are included which has to be erased later (another very painful process) when there is a fall out.
Normally, it is not looked with favour by conservative males, particularly in India.
Therefore, the women with tattoos there must have pre-decided to ally only with those men who are truly progressive, have liberal attitudes and approve of them.
Well, honestly I have never met any woman who had tattoos, your body is like a canvas. Some people try to preserve that canvas in order to secure the sanctity of their body, others fill it with mystery and majestic. It doesn’t really seem trashy or classy, it all depends on how the person finds it comfortable in being who they are, tattoos might be taboo in some cultures but it’s a way of telling something a story, an event, a feeling, emotions, preferences, or just down right classy.
Well, I know it might seem trashy to those people who live in a non secular society where all these things are flawed or looked down upon, but yeah there are bad effects and good effects of everything but we carry all of them together and not just one. Because a person no matter male or female having tattoos is just a person at the end of the day, and if you judge a book by it’s cover. well you get the idea.
Although tattoos, are like art and it should be preserved on the canvas of every person out there. :P :D XD
No matter how weird or intensifying you might find them, they are just pieces of art; take them as such. judge the art and not the artist, apparently if you look it another way, you are just showing how you see others and not the other way around.
I dated a supermodel type babe with an inordinate supply of tattoos. Some she drew herself, being a talented artist. Each one had huge meaning to her. It is like wearing your story on the outside. It seemed to help her with the pain she felt on the inside from past abuse. I was fine with it. She was a really thoughtful, kind and gentle person. We all have scars. Some inside and some outside. Choosing to take that pain and wear it, gives people a way to voice that, be it heartbreak or love or anger or fear. See the tattoos for what they are, a story.
