To tattoo or not to tattoo, that is the question!
Okay, so Shakespeare probably wouldn’t write serious questions about tattoos, but lately I’ve seen more and more women sporting tattoos (more women now than in Shakespeare’s era, for sure!). And to be honest I’m a little confused about it. (I love this Saturday Night Live video spoof about moms getting tattoos).
This is simply curiosity for anyone who has (or who has ever thought of) getting a tattoo. Hey, I even tried the “permanent makeup” to darken my naturally white blonde brows (yes God has a sense of humor to give a girl BRIGHT red hair and white blonde brows…haa – haa, it’s NOT funny!). In case you don’t know, “permanent makeup” is a fancy way of saying “tattoo” for your face. Because if you tried to sell women on the idea of tattooing our faces, we’d come up with all kinds of reasons as to why that is just plain stupid.
So why are so many more women likely to get a non-face tattoo? Especially when it doesn’t even have a cool name like “permanent body makeup.” Why the increase in tattoos? It’s especially interesting to me that lawyers, doctors, and other articulate, beautiful and accomplished women are walking around with tramp stamps (a tattoo on your lower back just above your tush). **I heard the term “tramp stamp” from the movie “Wedding Crashers.” If it has another name feel free to share below. Otherwise, remember I didn’t come up with the name….just calling it the most widely used one! **
Would love to hear your thoughts on this. To tattoo or not to tattoo….would you or wouldn’t you? Please leave your comments below. Until next time, wishing you a fabulous day!
