In this Episode of theShugrHeds…
…We use a few tubes of Henna Tattoo Ink we bought from eBay. It’s a lot of fun!
I realise this won’t be a very popular opinion, but I really don’t get the current trend with tattoos. It slowly crept into my attention in the early 2000’s. I remember David Beckham covering himself with them, then Robbie Williams. Then I realised that one of neighbour’s entire arm and leg was covered in them. He was so proud of them – but why? I just don’t get it.
I think it’s a bit like painting a rose or colouring an albino rabbit with felt tip – turning something organic into a man-made thing. But I have to be careful what I say, because I fully appreciate that I am probably in the minority of the planet by having no tattoos whatsoever. At the end of the day, if it makes you feel good about yourself then carry on. There are enough things in life to make you sad, so take all the lifts you can get!
Maybe its the permenance of the ink tattos that puts me off because having said all that, I do like some modest henna tattos. Ones on the back of the hand for example. Just a simple 1 colour design kind of enhances the natural beauty of the hand.
Do you know what…I think my attitudes may be a changin!
