I'm calling the two of you on this.
Oh really, you are getting a tattoo for you, huh? It's not because it's something fashionable, is it? It's not for any reasons outside of a heartfelt and deep emotional need to somehow outwardly display an inner aspect of your personality, right?
That explains why it's become recently popular, doesn't it? Prior to this illumnated generation nobody had a manner of expressing themselves apparently. <rollseyes> It also explains why like Smash said all these yearning artistes pick flash book tats, because, after all, it means something to them.
You'd have so much more integrity in my eyes if you'd simply admitted you prefer to be trendy and faddish. So what's next for you two visionary emotionalists? Self multilation when that becomes the "in thing?" Puh-lease. As your mother undoubtedly told you, if your friends jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge, does that mean you do it too?
I guess for you individualists (snort!) the answer would be, "Yes! In a New York minute!"
