    how so? at the end of the day, they're both doing the same thing. at one time some random tribesmen got ink and marked himself for no reason, and then it kicked off a tradition. basically what you're seeing today, except at a much faster pace for obvious reasons.

    It's a truly disgusting practice, that hurts our eyes and disturbs our conscience :hhh:

    Ask any artist not tattooing you for money..You simply cant draw a picture on dark brown canvas using Black pastels and still expect it to be legible..youre not just vain youre also stupid:mjlol:
    Black people blessed with beautiful God given look's have transformed themselves into something demonic and shytty looking :scust:

    Honestly speaking, I can't help it that I dont take anyone with tats seriously as a person..youre just a copycat follower with a fake identity :picard:

    It's something about ink on a man's inner forearm, pec, or calf that is raw.

    :dead: he was a bit judgemental, but i don't understand all this energy towards the OP otherwise. If you're in your late 20s- mid 30s you HAD to see the shift in tattoo culture.

    I remember when having sleeves and all this other shyt seemed like the whitest shyt you could do. Go back to some 90s footage of sports and the difference is jarring. It wasn't a tat in sight. Now its everywhere. But if you ask what happened and how it changed so dramatically, muhfukkas go on the attack... My guess is cuz they don't fully know themselves. I have nothing against tats, or no tats at all, but there shouldn't be a problem asking about it given the our culture. This is all VERY recent.

    The thought of a tatted up woman raising my child troubles me..it's just not motherly or feminine to look like that..but this is the age of debauchery and anything goes.

    Most people in the western world are not tattooing themselves for a noble reason or for tradition. An 18 year old girl is not doing it to pass it down to her offspring. Let’s just keep it real, many people are followers and are impressionable and end up regretting getting these tattoos just to fit in.

    And women who are attracted to men with tattoos tend to be birds anyway.

    Apart from cannabis and tattoos, I actually enjoy the other three things mentioned on your list. Clearly I hit a nerve because I showed how parochial your view of black people and black culture is.

    what Im trying to tell you is before they were tradition, it was just one random who marked themselves just because. it would be centuries later that it would become 'tradition' but it started off some where. just a random ass dude marking himself and 'giving it' symbolism. I bet people initially :hhh:, but then a few thought :ehh: , century later it morphed alongside the culture. that is exactly what is going to happen in modern day society.

    Tattoos have been around forever, but it's funny how it's exploded over the last few years.

    I personally hate seeing women with smooth beautiful skin, ruin it with crazy tats :scust:

    :yeshrug: It's more acceptable than it was 10 years ago so more people get them. Also more was to hustle without getting a real job and the shyt is just trendy right now.
