Slutty Girl Problems
How many have YOU heard?
Whether you’re just thinking of getting inked or are already tatted up, it’s no secret that there’s still a bit of a stigma around tattoos, even though they’ve been around for thousands of years.
Body art is awesome, and so is showing it off and talking about it.
And while almost everyone with tattoos is probably excited to discuss the topic, there are so many questions that inked people have heard hundreds of times.
So here’s a go-to answer sheet for the 10 most often repeated, and sometimes asinine, questions people with tattoos get.
1. Did it hurt?
No, getting stabbed with a needle repetitively, whether for a few minutes or for hours at a time, was a joy. Of course, it hurt!
2. Aren’t you going to regret that one day?
If I do, then that’s my business and probably something I’m not going to be super eager to discuss with you.
Obviously, if I got a tattoo, at least at that point of time there’s a 99.9% chance I didn’t plan on regretting it.
3. But what if you break up/stop being friends?
That’s like asking newlyweds, “So, what if you guys divorce?”
Friendship and name tattoos aren’t chosen lightly. Yeah, I’ve laughed at “that girl” or “that guy” with a giant tattoo of an ex’s name, I’ll admit it. But consider who you’re asking the question to. If you get a name or matching tattoo, you’re planning on being together for life.
4. What do guys think when they see it?
Listen, if a dude ever balks at one of my tattoos or acts disgusted by it once the clothes come off, good. It’s a lesson learned that I do not want to sleep with him and the clothes will go right back on.
Better to see that red flag coming from a mile away than after we’ve spent time between the sheets.
5. So, it doesn’t have a meaning?
Tattooed people love to discuss the meaning behind their tattoos, but don’t act weirded out when it turns out someone — *gasp* — got a tat just because they like them.
I have more than one tattoo that is a “just because I could” tattoo and, to me, that’s meaning enough.
