Trendy Tattoo Conformity

I heard something a few days ago on the radio, where someone asked, "Do Chinese girls walk around with American words tattooed on their body?" and I had to laugh because I had the idea of writing about this topic only a few days before that.

I'm a tattoo enthusiast. I love tattoos. I think they are beautiful pieces of artwork when done correctly and with a lot of thought. I love looking at other people's tattoos. I have 7 of my own tattoos and have plans for quite a few more. I'm proud to be different. I like to dye my hair funky colors some times, I have a few piercings and I love my tattoos. I don't want to look like everyone else, I like to be different and unique. I got my first tattoo 14 years ago and still love the first one as much as my others.

What I don't like is how tattoos have become so trendy. Now all of the sudden it's "cool" to get a tattoo. My question is, why are americans getting tattoos of chinese symbols or tribal artwork? It's just kinda dumb in my opinion unless you have Chinese or Indian in your blood somewhere. Did you get the tattoo because every Joe Blue and Tina Twat have chinese symbol tattoos and you wanna be cool, too? What about tramp stamps? I mean, really? Is that like advertising, "hey, bend me over and look at my tramp stamp!". Hmm, if the stamp fits? Now, every Susie Blowhole and her "bestie" (Gawd, I had that word) has a tramp stamp, too.

Oh,and let's not forget the newest trend in tattoos: angel wings on the back. Who are you kidding? Tattooing wings on your back does not make you an angel, nor does it make the other 243058345 other girls who have the same wings on their back. Trendwhores.

Ok people, try thinking with your own mind this time instead of copying what everyone else does? We are taught from early childhood that we are all different and there is no one else like us in the world. Well, yeah, there are because everyone wants to be a copy cat of everyone else.

BTW, I will never have angel wings, a chinese symbol or a tramp stamp. In fact, I'm hoping to have my entire back tattooed within the next few years.. I already have it started, just need the money to get it finished.. and everything on it will mean something important to me.

Drama Queens Suck!

You all know the type. The girl (well, it is usually a girl) who always seems to be in the middle of some kind of drama; drama at work, drama in relationships, drama in the family. After awhile you really begin to wonder if maybe she IS the reason for the drama? It's almost as if some women will go out of their way to get attention by going around to others saying, "oh, you won't believe who did what to me", or "guess what so and so did behind your back". Or, "My life is so horrible I'm just going to kill myself.. I just took half a bottle of pills, wahhhh"... I'm not making fun of suicide or anything, but if someone is sincerely considering suicide, they won't tell any one. It's the ones who tell everyone about it that are just doing it for the attention.

Lately, I've watched a few drama queens do their little show and dance and it's some times hard for me to bite my tongue. I mean, seriously, if you hate drama, and you don't want drama in your life, you don't LET drama in your life. If someone else is trying to cause drama in your life, you cut them out of your life and ignore them and don't give them the satisfaction by adding fuel to the fire! Stop blaming everyone else for your problems and stop being an attention whore!

Is there something seriously wrong with these types of people? Is something lacking in their life that makes them have a need to be the center of attention? For someone to go out of their way to get someone they hardly know involved in their own stupid little dramatic world?

I have enough going on in my life between a marriage, 3 young kids, working, college, blogging, taking care of my pets, cleaning my house, doing laundry and saving my own sanity to let someone bring drama into my life. I decided a long time ago that drama was just too stressful for me to deal with and I have enough stress in my life, why let any unneeded stress upset me? I guess at some point, you have to learn to grow the fuck up, stop stressing about petty crap, stop letting other people interfere with your life and do what you have to do to take care of your own family. GROW UP!
