REMEMBERING THE GOOD TIMES
Back in February 2018 when I originally wrote a post about millenials defacing themselves with crap tattoos, it was the middle of summer in New Zealand, it was hot and sunny, I’d just spent the whole of 2017 making piles of money on cryptos, Steemit was totally pumping, and I felt like some sort of crypto blog god. I did have a sense that all was not as it seemed, but I had no idea how hard the illusion was about to crash
The realisations that cryptos are just another zionist scam, or that Steemit was always set up as ponzi scheme right from the outset, (and also an AI in social media development site) were at least six months away for me…
In August 2019, still enduring a long, cold, wet winter, and occasionally revisiting the train wreck that is now Steemit, (what new sorry arsed scam are they up to?) or having my quick daily peak at the obviously manipulated crypto markets, and confirming they are still going nowhere, I miss those good times in 2017. Like some millenial numpty with a bunch of crap tatts, I wish I could go back to clean skin again. But disillusionment is even harder to remove than tatts.
One of the best things about my blog posts back then, are all the comments and interactions. So here in all its glory, with the original comments included, is one of my posts from the good old days:
While staring at a half naked photo of Justine Blubber I started wondering what the real reason is that young people have all taken to defacing themselves with the most appallingly crap tatts in the history of humanity.
Back in the old days sailors and prisoners used to get tattoos and everyone else used to take one look at them and make a mental note to avoid giving them a job.
The number of people getting tattoos has gone up greatly in the past 20 years, especially among those people under the age of 30. The other side to all this is that the tattoo removal industry is now bigger than the tattoo industry. Around 40 million Americans are tattooed, and around 7 million of them are already seeking tattoo removal.
As you might expect the number keeps going up as people accidentally catch sight of themselves in a mirror or a photo and start thinking things like “Why have I got a bunch of utterly meaningless words tattooed all over me”.
People really hate thinking for themselves, so to avoid this horrible experience they copy other people, and for some reason they think the things that they copy are just random fashions, but they never are. Fashions, just like smoking, feminism, low-fat diets, and pretending there are more than 2 sexes, are all designed to further social and money making agendas.
Tattoos serve several purposes; first and foremost they program people to later accept the idea of micro-chip implants which is one of the new world order plans. They also give people the illusion that they are expressing themselves, when in fact they are just willingly falling in line to do their part in submitting to another globalist agenda. Rather than forcing people to submit, it works much better to have them happily paying to submit.
Like all social engineering there are secondary financial benefits, and making people sick is nearly always one of them, because sick people are a profitable industry. As with fluoride and chlorine in the water supply, aluminum and mercury in vaccines, and GMO’s and Canola oil in the food supply, tattoo ink includes hormone disrupters and carcinogenic ingredients, so they tick that box too.
Tattoo removal technology is constantly improving – but at the moment it is slow, painful, and leaves scarring. As it develops it will become increasingly popular, and it is already a bigger industry than tattooing. The very same people who are promoting morons like Justin Blubber also have investments in the tattoo industry and will now be fully moving into the tattoo removal industry as well. Trying to pick the next big thing in cryptos is tricky but investing in the tattoo removal industry is a no-brainer.
That is the best reason I can come up with why the quality of tattoos has gone backward for the past twenty years. Lets face it though, they were always a bunch of crap artistically (would you ever want a tattoo as desktop wallpaper?), but at least in the 90’s some effort was made to do a decent job – I used to work a few doors along from Roger’s Tatooart, one of New Zealand’s top tattoo shops, so I saw skilled tattoo’s everyday, and they were a hell of a lot better than the slop most people are getting today.
Yesterday I was buying some food at our local organic shop – it’s the middle of Summer here and everyone is wearing as little as possible, when next thing I knew I nearly dropped my cans of coconut water from the shock of seeing a bloody awful tattoo of a skull on the shoulder of a woman.
From that point on I realised that every person in the shop had at least one tattoo (no, most tattoo ink is neither organic nor vegan) but I kept seeing feminists with bad haircuts all inked up with tattoos that even prisoners would once have considered a bit rough. The guy who sits on the footpath outside everyday asking for small change actually has far better tatts than many of the feminists in the organic shop.
A few extra fun tatt facts
In the UK there has been a more than 400 percent increase in tattoo removal in the past 10 years, often inspired by celebrities who ironically inspired the tattoo trend in the first place.
An employer survey cited over 70 percent of business owners registered an unfavourable view of job applicants with tattoos.
A laser tattoo removal typically costs around 10 times the amount of getting one.
Tattoo removal is the largest growth sector in cosmetic procedures worldwide
Tattoo inks often include phthalates (hormone disrupters) and dibutyl phthalate and benzoprene – well-documented skin carcinogens.
