    Default A new study of idiocy.

    Why do people get tattoos expressing their love for their significant other?

    If you break up, which is statistically bound to happen, the tattoo will have been a terrible waste of money.

    Obviously, you just use a placeholder name ("I Love Jane Doe" or "<Insert Name Here> 4ever") instead of a real name, silly.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I can't stand people my age who get tattoos of a celebrity or some phrase they like. Then are like, but it means something OMG! it's sooo personal. Alright fine it means something now but will five years from now, likely not I'm in my early 20s. I still am trying to figure out my views and opinions and I suspect most everyone my age is aswell. I just can't see myself being the same place and believing the same things I do now. Then again I never understood the need to put a hole through my body or permentally stain my skin. But maybe I'm just weird. Or dye my hair a weird color. And they call it self expression, it's not self expression if all your friends and everyone else you know does it as well.

    Why not?

    I also do not like it when people get tattoos with names of significant others on them. But it is there body and effects me in no way.

    I mean if all of your friends dyed their hair orange, then you did aswell. and what exactly are you trying to express anyways? You have orange hair congratulations, would you like a cookie cake with the words "OMG U R Sooo Original LOL!!!" ok that would probably more for a fourteen year old but you get the point.

    But these people are still idiots. What they do to their body says something about their mental capacity. And they annoy me.

    The fact that other people wish to express themselves the same as you does not detract from the fact that it expresses you, too. If I felt that I could truly express myself by having orange hair, but then my friend did it...then I guess it wouldn't express me anymore right? You never really know what people are like.

    I don't know anyone irl that has done this..

    I think the only name I would ever have tatooed on me would be "mom". Or maybe "Cottonball". I loved that hamster..

    Interesting that the Ps think that such permanency is foolish whilst the, so far, sole J who's posted thinks it's fine.

    Personally I think that the OP is a perfect example of exactly why it IS sometimes the right thing to do. It shows commitment and faith. Solidarity.

    It may well turn out to be myopic and ill advised but that's precisely the point. Only in risking such do you show commitment. Without any threat of cost how are people to believe that you'll stand by them?

    Of course such behaviour and thinking has lead to many problems but similar could be said about many things. The point is that by putting something there to lose your showing that you have faith that you will not lose it. (Well either that or your very bad at risk assessment )
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Well, I actually don't think it's a good idea. I am just saying that it is up to the person doing it and there is no point in anyone else getting upset over it.
