Merica



People love uniforms. Inside, they just want to really think of themselves as individuals though. When bellbottoms came out, everyone bought a pair of bell bottoms. When beards came in, everybody grew a beard. Tattoos are the same pollution. It's just that people want to think that theirs is unique. A tattoo is a rebel thing to get. How can it be considered a uniform? Unfortunately it is when every single jackass has 5 of them. People will say things like: "Mine's different, it's a unicorn on my butt." "Oh excuse me, you're right. Yours is different. How could I not see that?" On the beaches of the Jersey shore you see it play out big time. From really old ladies to effeminate teenagers. Everyone's got some dumb pen drawing, off centered, in a not very flattering place on their body. It would be sad if it wasn't so funny. They all seem happy and content with their symbol of individuality. The one they chose from a book of hundreds of little drawings and symbols. The same book everyone else chooses from. Maybe someone should get this drawing I did tattooed onto their back. That would be unique.

Ha! Reminds me of some lyrics by the Lounge Lizards: "All her friends in school were non-conformists, so she became a non-conformist too."

Oh, I so agree. The super hilarious thing will happen years from now, when old skin and old tattoos blend together. We're talkin' ugggllly!
