Dutch syntax is slightly convoluted when translating directly into English.

English- "The cow jumped over the fence."

Dutch into English- "The cow over the fence did jump."

Did you use a Japanese Dutch to English converter for this?

Not bad at all, just a little edgy here and there.
If you have done this on your own: kudos.

Secondly, while to those of you who tattoos are in the cool catagory, to the rest of the world it places you squarely in the Not To Be Trusted catagory.


And people with tattoos are shallow? Lemme say that again, so it gets though: you claim people with tattoos are shallow, but the rest of the world is not? Cut the sh*t, man, you're smarter than this.

Quote:
That may not matter to you. Fine. Whatever. But don't come crying to me when you don't get that job, get passed over for that promotion you desire, or the loan officer turns down your application for money, because whether you like it or not, placing ink on your body means something to the rest of the world who is not inclined to engage in aboriginal behavior.


This is nutso. I'm glad you're not your boss. Believe it or not, you can be successful in life and still have a tattoo. If you'd like, I'll write you a list of people who've done just that.

Quote:
And that is what this amounts to: Tribalism. The piercing, marking, and disfigurement are all hallmarks of, "Me in this tribe, you not one of us, unk!" While that may not be what comes to mind when you see a tat, the rest of us (read bankers, bosses, etc here) see rebel, person who does not like team play, nonconformist, does not play well with others.


And that is what this amounts to: hippocracy. The piercing, marking, and disfiguremet are hallmarks of tribalism, the original system of conformity. The Totems of the world, however, will point them out as non-conformist. Face it, bud, a book's cover may not indicate what's inside that book. In fact, in this case, the person judging this particular volume of literature can't even seem to state exactly what he finds wrong with it without contradicting himself in pretty much every paragraph.

Yes, tattooing has become more popular in the last twenty years. So has the science of robotics. Big @#%^ing deal.

What's next, Totem? Men with long hair are trendy, part of the crowd?

On all that sh*t concerning wedding bands: ever thought of wedding tattoos? People do it every day. Your symbol to your wife is contrite, imperfect and fleeting in comparison. You talk about commitment and strength, and you can't appriciate an art that celebrates a lifetime commitment. What a bogus set of ideals. Sure, anyone will agree that some of that art is bad, but some of it is beautiful and personal. If you disagree, you haven't seen the correct tattoo artists' work.

I'll ask you again: what happened with you and tattoos? Are you just railing for the sake of railing, or do you have something more personal that you'd like to share?

Tell you what, I promise to give you a fair, upfront, honest look when you apply for a job 20 years from now... and all your bosses have tattoos.

And thankfully this board has not turned into a Hippocracy yet, or else we'd all be forced at gun point to attend Alice Cooper concerts and go to school drunk.

What a mess that'd be.

Wedding tattoos?!? An abomination! A desecration of all that is holy! Get thee from mine sight, thou Tree worshipping pagan!

I dunno. I'd be tempted to take that bet and see whose wedding band lasts longer: Yours (one made from skin) or mine (gold-- an almost impervious metal).

Unless yours is pickled in formaldehyde I'm gonna have to go with gold.

I'd hate to see my bosses in twenty years, much less with tattoos on their wrinkled, saggy, and Alzheimers-ridden bodies. These guys are already in their 60's, so by the time they get a tat in their 80's their skin might just slough off in the process.

Ick.

They might have to get a great big DNR put on their chests. Heck, I might have to get one of those...

Heh, I guess I didn't botch it too badly then. no dictionaries or translators that time, but having the context of the story helped quite a bitI really should have fixed my sentance structure, but I didn't have time at the time.

i've got a bunch of tats...they are addictive. get one you'll prolly want more. if your worried about finding a good artist, either grab a tat magazine and start looking for artists in your area, browse the portfolio of an artist at a local shop, or just have an artist draw something up for you and see how it looks..most will do that for free. i tend to steer clear of the ones that are just trying to get you in and out of the chair..their hearts not into it anyway.

depending where you are located, i know some good artists. the best work I ever got done was from an artist in Dallas, TX. a place called Tigger's Tattoo. This mexican dude did a piece on my arm. was colored and shaded, healed beautifully in like 4 days and has hardly faded (even the shadow) in over 3 years. if i lived closer thats who i would get to do all my work.

He prolly was humming "La Cockaracha" and high steppin' around a sombrero as he inked the li'l rap lover. It was a dead giveaway...

Perhaps he disinfected his needles in an old salsa jar filled with alcohol. (And not the rubbing kind, good ol' tequila)

he didn't need any stereotypes to define him as mexican I don't believe. usually if I can tell someones nationality, i don't question it...if i can't tell I ask them.

if i had the motivation i would have found the papers and stated his name, but i was at work and felt lazy..yer lucky i had the energy to link the addy on yahoo. Smiley: tongue

2 tattoos, Clemson Tiger Paw on my right shoulder blade, tribal art around my left ankle. Neither from a book in a parlor /shrug

2 piercings, but I stopped wearing the earring years ago lol.

Oh and as for the shallow blah blah bs, I care, really. The fact is what 90% of the people in the world think of you doesn't amtter in the least, and you can ignore most of the other 10%. I ignore pretty much 100%, so if you dont like my tattoos or my tongue ring, kiss my ass =)

Wedding tattoo v. wedding ring. Let's see you drop that wedding tattoo down the sink drain while you are washing your hands.

p.s. Not even saying there is anything at all wrong with Totem's point of view. He's entitled to think people with tattoos are shallow, just as we are entitled to think people who stereotype and generalize are shallow.
