About Tattoos…………Opinions and Honest Discussion


A friend of mine posted a provocative article about “why girls have tattoos and piercings” that insinuated that people with body ornamentation are “broken”. Read and tell me what you think……

1. What kind of girl would be comfortable lying down half-naked in public for two hours while some fat dude with a dirty beard jams a sharp needle into her skin? Answer: the kind of girl who takes sharp objects in her body as a hobby. Girls with tattoos and/or piercings (aside from earrings) are people who fall in and out of guys’ beds at a moment’s notice. If you’re unfortunate enough to commit to a girl with ink on her body or metal in her face, she’ll cheat on you at the drop of a hat. Tattoos and piercings are the mark of the promiscuous.

2. They have no foresight

  • Even in our degenerate society, people with visible tattoos and piercings have difficulty getting jobs. Not even minimum wage employers will hire them, because no one wants their Big Mac or Double Crappuccino served by an Apocalypto extra. Girls who get inked or pierced are showing that they can’t be trusted to plan for the future. They don’t care that their stupid choices will consign them to living off their parents for the rest of their lives: all they care about is their individuality.Not only that, but girls with tattoos specifically have no idea that their cool designs will be destroyed by aging. Gravity and Father Time work their magic on us all, and your taut flesh will eventually sag and wrinkle like a raisin in the sun. A chick who can’t comprehend that the awesome Narnia scene tattooed on her back will look like Technicolor vomit when she’s 40 is not a good choice to be the mother of your children.


    3. They’re selfish

    The reasons girls get tattoos and piercings—“I’m doing it for ME!”—are indicative of narcissism and mild psychopathy. Girls get tattoos for the same reasons they cut their hair short: a desperate attempt to assert how unique and special they are. A girl who willfully disfigures herself like this will never attempt to please you or do anything nice for you. She won’t care for you when you’re sick, will refuse to sleep with you for completely arbitrary reasons, and will generally be  moody and unlikable .


    4. They’re boring

    Girls’ logic when it comes to tattoos is best described by paraphrasing Lena Dunham’s character in Girls: ”I have a tattoo, and that just makes me naturally interesting.” Nothing could be further from the truth. My experience shows me that girls with ink and/or metal are the most boring, conformist chicks you’ll ever come across. To be fair, most girls are dull as dirt, but tattooed and pierced girls are aggressively dull, assaulting you with the most hackneyed left-wing tripe you’ll ever hear.

    My “piercing addict” girlfriend, for example, identified as a Marxist  based on one class she took on Latin America and was constantly talking my ear off about some “injustice” or another. The joke was that before she took that class, she was so tuned out to current events that she wasn’t even registered to vote.


    5. They’re mentally ill

    This is the clincher. Any girl who thinks that a getting a ring in her nose or a Bible verse on her back is a good idea is going to be off her rocker. In my entire life, I have never met an inked or pierced girl who wasn’t sick in the head, whether they had depression, “anxiety” or a full-blown personality disorder. While girls with facial piercings and tattoos on the arms or legs can at least feign normality, chicks with piercings or tattoos on or near their erogenous zones are the kinds of broads who will cut you with a knife.

    But if you’re looking for a girl you can wife up, go for the ones who haven’t mangled their bodies beyond repair.”

*****the following is an article written by Matt Forney. I edited a lot of the harsher parts out.*****

AS a believer, I would caution others to not judge this book by the cover. Consider age, circumstance, culture, life experiences and socialization before making a hasty judgement. Times are changing as are reasons for choices in body art.

  • in the old days (my grandparents day) Sailors and dancing girls had tattoos ….
  • My dad had a blurred tattoo on his wrist and another on his arm, both drawn by another soldier during WW2. BTW, his generation saved the world
  • older Rock Stars had tattoos (think Johnny Winter)
  • TODAY, I know ministers, doctors, lawyers, nurses and teachers who have tattoos. Most are younger than 35. Many use ink to celebrate triumph, mourn loss and remember special occurences. Most are not promiscuous, mentally ill, boring or selfish. At my church, one of the song leaders and several young adults have tattoos…..
  • BTW, are we not ALL BROKEN?

What do you think?

  1. I myself would not have one. God’s word says the body is the temple of God. Since it is we should show honor to God by not dishonoring our bodies with outside forces.

    That said many tattoos are artistically appealing. Many are applied under the influence.

    Also this article was specific to the female gender. I believe it should include both genders.
