Tattoos Were Cool Until You Got One

Tattoos used to be cool. Worn by outlaws, rebels, a lone wolf and all around bad asses. Then you got one and now every non contributing zero got one of their kids initials, an old video game or some other symbol of mediocrity.

“Getting a tattoo has lost its edge. How can the rebellious kids express themselves now that tattoos have become part of the mainstream? Getting a tattoo doesn’t have to mean a lot these days. I think it used to mean something ; it was edgy, a sign of the counter culture. Now it’s just … a tattoo. Nothing more. “

Tattoos used to represent something that has now been hijacked by the most undeserving of generations in history. The same with body piercings, comics, star wars, video games, the list goes on.
