I hate Tattoos

My daughter will put this post down as my "angry old man rant" but here goes anyway. I can't stand tattoos. I can remember when the only people with tattoos were sailors and those folks in the carnival freak show on the midway.Now you walk down the street and it seams like every other person has an exposed tattoo. It's worse in the summer because people expose more skin. Now I know it's a fad at least I hope it is a fad, but unlike bell bottom pants that you can give to Goodwill you can't get rid of tattoos when the fad ends.

Now I know many nice folks who have tattoos but nothing brands a person like a tattoo. I view tattoos as part of the general coarsening of American society.
