so, i have wanted to get a few tattoos for quite some time now, but sadly corporate america is holding me back. i hate the fact that it is SO difficult to find a decent job if you have tattoos. i think this is ridiculous- i mean, as long as the tattoo isnt offensive then i dont see a problem with having them in the workplace. same goes for body piercings. how is okay to have your ears pierced but not your lip? ear piercings have ALWAYS freaked me out way more than lip, eyebrow, nose, etc- who determines whats "normal"???
anyway, ive been longing for some tattoos for awhile now, like i said. i want a few on my arms, most people say i'll regret it, but how can somebody regret carrying around beautiful art everywhere they go, hassle free? i think it would be great.
after the wedding i have plans to leave this waitressing job at chili's. i just cant stand it. i dont know WHAT im going to do instead, maybe i will just have to suck it up for awhile till i get my screenprinting going. i dont know yet.
anyway, what are your thoughts on tattoos? tattoos in the work place? i know most of you have one or two, im sure of it. maybe even 3 or 4. have you noticed a change in the way people treat you in public, if your tattoo can be seen by them? i noticed a HUGE change in the way people treated me when i dyed my hair red. everyone was so nice to me, so cheery and kind (im talking about strangers). i did not like having red hair, so i dyed it black (which is also what i had before the red) and i noticed a change in behavior real quick- its almost like they look down on me for having black hair. this hasnt been a problem since i transfered to a new chili's, i think its a demographics thing or whatever its called. but it bugged me so much at the time, and still does.
oh well its late and i should be sleeping. tomorrow i plan on posting some of my top favorite things, everything from blogs to artists. i hope that it turns out to be an inspirational post.
