A dike writing an article about something as foolish as tattoos today means little.

Tattoos are sorta like skin selfies (aka, “look at ME”), and it’s an interesting ‘coincidence’ that 1-in-5 people have a clinically diagnosable mental illness… which is exactly the same percentage as the folks who have tats (so maybe it’s also a form of ‘self-identification’)!

BTW, no worries, they’re so desperate for it, that they even love the negative attention…it gives ’em a chance to be ‘victims’! ;-p
