also, i’m not being hypocritical here and saying i’ve never thought someone’s tattoo was bad. you fucking kidding me? half the tattoos i see these days are the dumbest, most cliche, horrible linework, bad art, pieces of shit in existence. but would i ever tell the owner? no. that’s mean.
Suggesting, implying, even outright telling someone that their tattoo is stupid/pointless/bad in any way is incredibly rude and cruel. A tattoo doesn’t need to have some bullshit, forced, “significant” meaning to the owner. Maybe they just liked that picture/song/person. Who the fuck cares? You shouldn’t. Even if you think it’s horribly done or ridiculously trendy or anything less than awesome, you don’t need to tell the person. Clearly, they must like it enough to have it on their body forever.
