Pop Culture in the Subway – Tattoos, Chips and Magazines.

May 1st, 2011 · No Comments · Social Commentary

Waiting for my train at Jay Street and staring at the magazines behind the glass of the Magazine Stand.

What stands out are Big Butt Babes, Rappers’ Beefs, Muscle Magazines and Tattooed Chicks. But it’s the last one that I find the most interesting. They’re so pretty and slight, to see them all inked up is a turn off – not sexy at all, at least to me. There are some instances that tattoos are sexually provocative (lower back) but not on the next or up and down the arms.

Do you remember the girl that Sandra Bullock’s ex Jesse James ran off with “Michelle Bombshell McGee?” How pretty she is yet the tattoos all over her face look like someone struggling with demons. That’s just my opinion. So what’s the deal with all these hotties getting all inked up. There is an interesting study called Tattoos and Body Piercings in the United States which you can find here. In a nutshell it’s even between men and women and about 25 percent of the population. Also there seems to be a correlation between those who have tattoos and having spent time in jail.

The numbers are dramatically higher for young adults between 18 and 25 – more than a third. You can check out the study here. I just think it looks terrible especially on a beautiful young girl. Guys it’s one thing especially if you’re in a band or a cage fighter. But Daddy’s little girl? How does that happen.

When Sofia is old enough, she’ll get the message that as soon as she walks in the door with a tattoo that she should be prepared for me to scrape it off with sandpaper. But there is one more option. New Erasable Ink Tattoos that come out with just one laser treatment.

Check out this video clip.

Might have been a good idea for Pam Anderson, Tommy Lee, Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie. That’s gotta suck for Brad.
