The campaign is finally continuing! I’ve been asked by a few if this campaign is finished. But no this is not America where you just cut series half way through with no real ending (yes I am still a little sore about gossip girl). But this blog has to cover a load of topics and mixed with personal events sometimes the series on here may not be as flowing as you want. Sorry but that’s just how its got to be. But without further ado it’s time for our next hateful society saying, “You Are Pretty! You Know, For A Tattooed Girl.” Ok ok I know what you are thinking. It’s only the older generation who a prejudice and those weird christians against tattoos pages on Facebook. But no unfortunately it’s not. Although millennial’s (yep us) are more acceptable to people getting tattoos there is still prejudice towards them. And this can normally be divided into two categories “You are getting that?” and “You are getting it where?”.
You are getting that?
This is an easy one to start. Nowadays people just love to put their opinions everywhere whether they are wanted or not. So when you have explained your tattoo concept you’ll often find one person who simply does not approve. This can be because they don’t get it e.g. when someone on snapchat literally laughed at the fact that I would have a piece of punctuation behind my ear. Not understanding that a semi colon is actually a symbol to represent mental health awareness and suicide prevention. I hope he felt like a dick after. The thing is if a tattoo has any meaning to you whatsoever and people don’t get it. Oh well. It’s not for them it’s for you. I had a friend who had an outline of a Diplodocus behind her ear for no apparent reason whatsoever. But it’s her body so who cares. This is the same for “cliché tattoos”. If your tattoo idea is not completely original or unique to you but you really love the idea or it is meaningful to you go for it.
You are getting it where?
Another thing people love to comment on is where you are getting a tattoo. Don’t get me wrong in some cases I understand it will look better placed in certain areas depending on sizing and shape but I am talking about the people who like to comment on the fact that its visible. “But what about jobs?” If you have something ridiculously offence on you then yeah, worry. If you have “mum” or a “flower” etc… then that’s up to you. If you want to cover it, cover it. If you don’t, don’t. If people in this modern society really think having a tattoo makes you incapable of carrying out your job you probably don’t want to work with them as they have a low IQ anyway. Oh the shade of it all.
Now this is the big one. Why are we so upset about where women get their tattoos? Lower back = Tramp stamp. Near breasts or upper thighs = slags. Sleeves = masculine and can’t wear dresses. Like please just stop. Where you place a tattoo has nothing to do with who you are as a person or how attractive you are. Most of the time it’s about where the piece itself will look good. Stop judging someone else art to make your boring self feel better. If you really hate tattoos or tattoos in certain places then I have a simple solution for you. Don’t get one.
Now it is time to meet Michelle.
Does Michelle having tattoos make her unattractive?
Michelle has different styles of tattoos and beautiful sleeve work which for stupid reasons in today’s society is seen as masculine. Michelle has been told before that dresses don’t go with her tattoos or what about when she’s older or won’t that affect her career wise? But as you can tell by these striking photos that Michelle is a woman who is strong and won’t take any shit from society. THANK GOD.
Michelle is a highly educated, probably over qualified in so many different fields, beautiful, funny, crazy, unique, caring person and is Pretty! You Know, For Any Type Of Girl. Oh and she will happily rock her tattoos in stunning “feminine” dresses and get more done.
