I have to admit a Beavis laugh went through my head when I typed that.

IT HAPPENED TO ME: I Have a Culturally Insensitive Tattoo

What my ill-advised dream catcher tattoo taught me about youth, regret, and cultural appropriation.

And for those of you who may scoff and think tattoos aren't a BFD packed with cultural significance, I remind you that they're a feminist issue:

4 Rules for Talking to Tattooed People Without Disrespecting Our Boundaries

http://everydayfeminism.com/2013/07/tattoo-etiquette/

I think rule #1 goes without saying - you don't put your hands on people without their consent pretty much ever - so I'm not certain why we need to re-contextualize it to tattoos. The other four basically boil down to, "hitting on someone is disrespectful" and "I want to talk about tattoos, but I don't really want to talk about tattoos."

Sounds to me like the author has been sadly disappointed by the lack of wonder, shock, outrage, and questions others have shown in response to her tattoos. BECAUSE YOU SHE IS TATTOOED IN CASE YOU HAVEN'T NOTICED. BECAUSE SHE'S A FIERCELY INDEPENDENT ICONOCLAST AND DOESN'T CARE WHAT ANYONE ELSE THINKS. GOT IT? ARE WE CLEAR? IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU THINK. MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND THAT. SHE DOESN'T CARE, AND DOESN'T WANT TO HAVE TO TELL YOU AGAIN. ALSO, SHE'S NOT HUNGRY FOR ATTENTION. IF SHE WERE, SHE WOULDN'T HAVE GOTTEN TATTOOS THAT UNDOUBTEDLY SHOCK ALL OF YOU UPTIGHT, CONVENTIONAL SHEEP. NOT THAT SHE CARES WHAT YOU THINK, BECAUSE SHE DOESN'T.

First, would hit. Second, comments are awesome. Then this one came along...

Hey! Native here! I can't speak for every other Native American but I can speak for what my family, friends and myself think. Dreamcatchers, feathers, bull skulls and etc are just kind of whatever. Major eye roll but nothing to get your feathers ruffled over.

So basically all this kvetching (OH NO! I'M NOT JEWISH!) is just masquerading as introspection to the lone Native American that replied.

The hipster tattoo thing bewilders me. Clothes, haircuts, speech, neighborhood, drink of choice etc can all change with the times. Tattoos as a fashion fad are guaranteed to look dated, probably in the next what, 10 years?

Awful of the Native American person to make such an insensitive birdkin comment ("nothing to get your feathers ruffled over"), did they trigger warn it at least in the post, I'm pretty outraged.

If only this had started with hipsters you might have a point. Tats went mainstream well over two decades ago.

Yeah but we're talking about going from a niche thing to a pop culture thing. Nobody is saying tattoos didn't exist before the hipsters but it's way more mainstream now than 20 years ago, no?

I think more people might have been getting tats in 1995 than in 2015. I'm just guessing but a lot of ink seemed to flow around then.

Also, those folks getting tats in 1995? Now they're the decision makers, those at the height of their careers. Basically, we're the bosses Millenials answer to.

I'd say that at least one part of it is that we now have a generation of young adults raised in an era when tattoos were a much more mainstream thing. When I was a kid, tattoos were viewed as a big deal (or at least mildly edgy and a bit "low class") in middle-class white suburbia. By the time I was in college, not so much. Part of that, I think, comes from the fact that the rise of MTV and music videos really jump-started the adoption (appropriation) of hip-hop/street/gang/urban culture by the suburban mainstream.

Also, to ethan's point -- smoking has become sort of a hipster thing, no? If we're talking about head-scratchers, I'd propose that one.
If I had to choose, I know which I'd prefer my kid opt for when she's a few years older.

1990's was a lot of tribal / barbed wire upper arm stupid shit. So a decent amount of people were getting tats, but they don't count as much as ones on your face.
