Interesting article: A theory for tattoos
I have always cringed when seeing tattooed skin. My father warned us his children particularly against hard drugs and tattoos. I didn’t always heed his advice, but I did in these matters. I have never understood this desire to make our bodies something “man-made” and to be modified at will.
We dress in clothes and style our hair, but those things always remain exterior to us and are reversible. Women have make-up, but it comes off. Tattoos and “aesthetic” surgery are irreversible. The thought is awful!
