There's quite a few things about teenagers my age that I don't understand. Today's topic, however, is tattoos and piercings. Why does EVERYONE, and I mean literally EVERYONE, is complaining about not being able to get a tattoo at the moment or expressing their desire for a tattoo? Also, the piercings. Frankly, I don't see what's so attractive about having a gazillion holes in all parts of your earlobe, or on your nose, lip, tongue, eyebrow, stomach, etc.
I mean, yes, tattoos are cool, but what's with the obsession of getting one? I've NEVER ever wanted to get a tattoo, most likely never will. I mean, 1) It probably hurts, at least slightly if not a lot. 2) What if you get a tattoo of something and then realize you don't like it afterward or realized you should've gotten something else? And God forbid, what if you tattoo the name of your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife's name on some part of your body? Marriages/relationships don't last forever these days, if you get the picture. Personally, I would never be stupid enough to do that. I've always been a responsible, rather ladylike girl in most things (and I mean MOST, but not all) and I've never cared for any of these things. Maybe it's just the ghetto-ish school I go to where every girl wants these things, but what happened to girls who are just happy with the simple things about their body? Without all the tattoo ink or the holes?
