Some of you reading this might not think tattoos are taboo at all, as a matter of fact I feel the same way. But I have been reading a lot of articles lately about tattoos and I’m starting to wonder myself if tattoos are really as excepted as we all think they are. There is no doubt that tattooing has become extremely popular over the past couple of years even decades. But there are still a lot of people out there that consider them trashy, inappropriate and not acceptable.
For instance, I have read several articles in the past few days warning people if the have a noticeable or tattoo that can not be covered up not to even think about applying for jobs. Of course these jobs are usually with the state or government. But still this goes to show that people are serious about thinking tattoos are inappropriate. Also I read an article last week involving some school that is strongly trying to enforce and get a rule passed at a high school that students can not have tattoos and if they do they have to remain covered up at all times. There are even some night clubs in the United States that are banning people from entering the club if the have a noticeable tattoo. These clubs claim they are having gang problems and that’s the only way they think they can control them from not coming in there is be banning anyone with a tattoo. Of course this is making locals and regulars very unhappy with the club.
So even though the tattoo community has come a long way from where they were, it seems we’ve still got a ways to go.
