Phil and I have noticed, tattoo harassment has been exceptionally bad this year! Not only are people staring at us more than usual, they are approaching us on a daily basis asking dumb questions like…
"How much do your tats cost?" FIRST OFF- I hate it when people call Tattoos "TATS"! UGH! Second, that’s one of the rudest questions you could ask someone, its up there with asking how much their yearly income is. It really is none of your fucking business and I don’t know how its relevant to anything!
"Did it hurt?" -Of course it hurt fool!
"Where did you get your ink done?"- Again, they are TATTOOS, don’t call it INK! I’m all about promoting my tattoo shop, and if I have any Red Rocket cards on me, I will give them out. But more times than not, it’s a waste of time with them. They always proceed to elaborate on tattoos they want to get. I really don’t care what ‘sick’ tattoos they plan to get, its most likely going to look like shit or they are too much of a pussy to actually get it done.
I am so sick of people talking to me about my tattoos! They aren’t an invitation for a conversation. I did not get them for anyone else but myself! Don’t take my picture, unless its for a blog or publication, then I will consider it… Don’t ask me how much they cost? Did they hurt? What shop do you go to? Don’t tell me about your tattoos or your tattoo ideas. Leave me alone and let me live my tattooed life in peace and quiet!
The silent insult-
Old people are the worst. They never really say anything to me directly, they either mutter shit like “disgraceful” or “your mother should be ashamed” under their prune smelling breath. Or they give me the death stare and shake their head. This drives me crazy! YOU OLD PEOPLE SHIT YOUR PANTS AND FART UNCONTROLLABLY!!!!! COME ON!
Its really getting ridiculous and fists are going to fly soon. Its a fucking city, tattoos are everywhere so get used to it!
