My whole life I’ve been anti getting tattoos. I have nothing against other people who want to get tattoos, but as far as myself getting a tattoo? That was a big no-no. The rising tattoo popularity is what put me off. It was something everyone was getting to the point it felt like a dime a dozen. Tattoos used to be something that were exclusive to a certain type of person. It was for the rebellious, the reckless, and the intimidating. Now, it seems like everyone has them. Is that a bad thing? I’m not sure. I suppose it’s good that tattoos have become more socially acceptable. I remember twenty years ago you couldn’t have a single tattoo exposed while at work. It was actually so frowned upon to the point people would miss out on job opportunities. I guess it’s nice that people are less judgmental nowadays.
Okay, the more I think about this the more I want to get tattooed. Maybe I should become part of the masses and accept that getting a tattoo is inevitable in today’s day and age. I mean, have you seen the streets of Brisbane? It’s a total tattoo haven. We have the most famous tattooist Brisbane has ever seen. In fact, they’re probably the most famous tattooist Australia has ever seen. It’s hard to become famous, but to become the most famous person in your field says a lot.
The more I talk about tattoos and think about how prevalent they have become, the more I think I want to get one. I think it’s time for me to admit I’ve become a bit of a tattoo convert. It’s not so bad to have a tattoo nowadays. Plus, there’s heaps of options out there. There’s even such a thing as a Japanese tattooist. Brisbane is full of anime fans and so many of them are getting tattooed now too. Let’s face it, many anime fans are nerds but there’s definitely something cool about nerds getting tattoos. You know what? I’m starting to think tattoos are great for everyone!
