Hi everyone, today I am going to be talking about something I have wanted to get off my chest for a while and that is the subject of tattoos. First off I am going to throw it out there and say I have 6 tattoos of my own and I am not done with them I have a few more planned that I can not wait to get.
What I do want to talk about is the negativity around tattoos.
I was having a conversation with a colleague at work who aired his views off women getting tattoos and people who are covered in tattoos to me and it really wound me up.
First off he told me women shouldn't get tattoos as it is unattractive and makes them look tacky, especially when they are covered in them. I pulled him up and said so I look tacky as I have tattoos to which he didn't know what to say and tried to take it back. Now I am not saying what he said was wrong as everyone has their own opinions and they are entitled to them but to say it to someone you know has tattoos is just a little bit too much.
He then decided it would be good to get real into the conversation by going on about how people have tattoos are ashamed of their body and that if they were to get assessed by a psychiatrist having tattoos would go as a negative as it shows self harm. I walked away after hearing this as I was so shocked.
In this day it is still frowned up on to have tattoos, why? Most people have tattoos now but why do some people feel the need to make people feel crap because they have them and other people hate them.
I see tattoos as art and a way of expressing yourself. Tattoos are part of who you are.
If you don't have tattoo's then thats your choice. If you do have tattoos then guess what? that is also your choice! People may not like them but that is up to them! If you don't like them, keep your thoughts to yourself! 
I have seen online people slating mothers for having tattoos. Saying they are bad mums for having a tattoo. How does that work? The child and the mother are two separate people. The mothers tattoos do not effect the child in any way at all. 

Anyway enough of my rant.
Thanks for reading
