Although this isn’t directly fashion related, I’d like to share something with everyone that I feel very strongly about.
My friend Marissa, over at Needles and Sins Tattoo Blog, was in today’s issue of the New York Post discussing the recent media lash-out of heavily tattooed women being nothing more than home-wreckers and, well, trashy hos. All of us ladies here at Haute Macabre are heavily tattooed women, and I can’t say that any of us fall into the home-wrecker category. After reading both articles, I am still amazed and appalled at the reaction to heavily tattooed women from the general public.
“Who wants to marry that? Or have that be the mother of your children. The tattooed trash look is for a 1 night stand or at best she will date her look heroin dealer/junkie.”
“As my son once remarked: ‘tattoos make you look stained’.”
“Maybe that’s the new art, hang a tatooted [sic] person on your wall!”
Before I wind up writing out an incredibly long-winded, foot stamping post here about my reaction to this, everyone please check out Marissa’s article, and tell us your thoughts & experiences.
