[QUOTE=Jungle Shift Jet;4497982]In my post-European culture it's considered self-hating mutilation.[/QUOTE]
What culture is that, specificly? :confused:
Tattoo'ing is quite mainstream today in the United States I live in. Catholic Grandmother-level mainstream, in fact (I know several who have them).
My friend has one, a Grateful Dead one. Do you think the cute little bear she got at 18 means she really hated herself?
A symbol of self-mutilating self-hatred? Or cute nod to a favorite band?
Actually, no answer needed. I know where this will go, and it doesn't matter that much.
