(I'd love to see this guy, pictured above, when he's 65, with his shitty-ass wrinkled chest boom box, trying to explain the significance to his grandchildren)
I guess what really miffs me about the "I JUST TURNED 22, AND THERE'S NOT A STITCH OF SKIN LEFT THAT ISN'T TATTOOED!" is that they're not thinking anyone but themselves (and even then, they're not stopping to think about their futures).
I understand that if you work in an industry that has you working from home / in a creative environment, you're pretty much left to your own devices.
But think about 20 years down the road.....do you really think you're going to be able to keep the title of "musician/model/stylist," while paying off a mortgage, and contributing to your RRSP?!
I'll be the first to congratulate those that do!!! You've seized your passion, and you've made it work.
But for a lot of us, we have to moonlight as business casual office workers during the day.
For those of us who are city dwellers, perhaps you've noticed the influx.
Living out your 20s and 30s in the big city is a great idea - I 100% agree.
It's a fantastic feeling when you move away from home, and finally feel like you've found a place where you truly belong. But as soon as you consider "settling down," trying to blend in with the other suburbanites (where you thought it might be best to raise your young family), might be a bit more difficult with that "gnarly" Wesley Willis back piece (R.I.P.)
I will agree that "times are changing," and it's a lot more socially acceptable than ever before. But I'm starting to find myself clumping all young adults with a majority of their body tattooed in the same category.
those glasses are tattooed onto his fucking face.
