Sorry for the shitty picture, my phone is old. This was just taken at the record store where I work.

I get tattoos and why people would want them. But why this? This isn't something you can just cover up when you realize it was a mistake.

Anyone here have a crazy head tattoo? Is there anyone here who can make a good case for having a crazy head tattoo?

She doesn't quite look like a hippy to me. Hippies don't primarily prefer the color BLACK on everything they own.

:lol: yes dude, of course. If she really didn't want anyone to see the tattoo anymore she could just let her hair grow out. Well I noticed the tattoo extends past the area of her head that would have hair so she'd still have it peaking out.

The picture is deceiving because it was only her purse that was black. Her tank-top was a tan-ish color. She also had tattoos all over her legs, neck and arms and she had one of those piercings in the middle of her chest.

Also, it appears she has large breasts in the picture, that too is deceiving.

So in all seriousness where do people like that work? I know I would never hire somebody that looked like that. Obviously a white collar executive type job is out. I'd have to believe a service job would be out as well. I can't imagine too many bars or restaurants would hire somebody like that to be a bartender or server. I own bars and restaurants and would never hire somebody that looked like that. So what's left?

Tattoos on heads and necks is horrible.

Though I must say I think flames or tribal lines on the head on big guys is kinda cool. An example is Bam Bam Bigelow (rip).

I guess now that I think about it, there are plenty of hippy/alternative places where she would fit right in. Tattoo parlors, piercing places, bead stores and crap like that. Even most music stores are kind of on the fringe ya know. I suppose there are plenty of places where alternative people can earn a living and those places would never dream of hiring somebody that looks like me.

At one point it seemed to be a requirement to have these tattoos and other weird piercings to even be considered employable at music places like Tower Records.

That reminds me of a line from Sports Night when Jeremy is making fun of people who go to New York trendy night clubs where he asks "Where do all these people work during the day? They can't all work at Tower Records."

I still can't see her ear in that pic. I just see some sort of quarter-moon red tattoo looking thing. But I'll take your word for it.

In visually decyphering the blurry photo, I've come to a conclusion. She's really cute.

Just think of fucking crazy it would be if you found a photo of yourself on an internet forum. But I guess with a tattoo like that, you're asking for attention.

I have some family in Austin, and, while I would love to live there, the overwhelming number of hipsters there drives me crazy. Everywhere you look, you just want to smack someone upside the head and tell them, no, you're not as cool as you think you are.

On her Facebook page, she says she earns a living by shoplifting records and selling them on eBay.

Everyone is only as cool as they feel in the moment. It's all about perception and who you can fool.

I work at Target, they are surprisingly liberal with who they hire. People who, while they're interviewing have full sleeve tattoos, mohawks, etc. Occasionally some of the customers get offended by it, but the managers are pretty cool about protecting the team.

As for the girl in the picture... isn't the pretty easy to cover up, you know, with hair?

I was at the grocery store recently and saw the peculiar site of a slim mother in her 30's pushing her 3 year old son in one of those shopping cart that looks like a race car. She was easily 8 months pregnant, maybe 9, she looked ready to pop. And she's got both arms fully sleeved and one of those extravagent tatoos across her chest and tits.

Maybe she used to tour with Rage Against the Machine, maybe she used to be a Suicide Girl, but now she's got a 3 year old and another on the way, a race car shopping cart, and she's stocking up on Lunchables at the Vons in Costa Mesa. Boy did her life change direction.

What's their to be offended by? Unless there's some vulgar phrase tattooed or shaved on their body i see nothing wrong with it.

It's the new Bumper Sticker of the 21st Century.

Why put stickers on their cars--well, they probably can't afford one anyway--when you can just ink-up at your local whatever and put a Facebook Quote on the skin and be controversial.

It's also a pseudo-tribal way to display your "Quests & Conquerings" to your friends at the local brew or gym, and marvel at the colors and blah blah blah.

Problem. Is. That everyone and their idiot 12-year old has tats these days, so it's hardly controversial.

It's just annoying as hell.

Seems to me a person is more controversial and rebellious if the refuse to tattoo their body.

I dated (briefly) a woman who had head and neck tattoos who works as a hair stylist and make-up stylist (beauty and film special effects).

Believe it or not, not everyone wants to be a white collar-type or a server in your bar.

You are right. There is no doubt there are jobs for these people. But they certainly limit themselves to certain occupations when they make the decision to get these kinds of tattoos.

They set themselves up to be limited in a lot of ways. The woman in my example would fit right in at an art show, film set, or record store, but at the Costa Mesa Vons pushing a race car shopping cart and 9 months pregnant she looked as out of place as someone in a Halloween costume in July. I wonder how she looks when she picks that kid up from pre-school? I'd say the other parents are probably split 50-50. Half are repulsed and the other half are tolerant but think she's a fucking tool.

For people over 60, tattoos were unattractive in their youth. The only tattoos I saw when I was a kid were on older men who had been in the Navy in the Pacific theater during WWII.

In forty or fifty years the fashion pendulum will swing the other way again, and all those tattoos that people are proud of today will look old-fashioned and dorky to anyone under 30.

Does hair grow back over an area that's been tattooed?

Yes, but as the hair shaft pushes through the follicle it also pushes through the tattoo ink that has been permanently injected into the skin. As the hair shaft pushes through the ink, it will unavoidably collect the pigments of the ink. This, in turn, effectively dies the hair the same color as the skin it came from.
