The Independent - Tattoos: Marked For Life?
SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: thought this was worthy of sharing, it’s not an awful modification per se. but awful public attitudes to them.
This came up on my Facebook news feed, it’s a nice thing that there’s a charity helping people remove hideous tattoos that they regret if they can’t afford it themselves, but some of the opinions stated are depressingly anti-mod :/
it’s just awful to be writing on a well read news site that -
- tattoos are essentially a form of self harm
- 3/4 of people who have them regret them
- it’s acceptable for workplaces to discriminate based on having tattoos
- if you want a job you should know better than to get tattooed in the first place
and the comments. dear god.
