BUT. You can imagine how much I want a cutie mark tattoo. I'm not going to do it, Mrs/ ZAAL will have a fit. But I really, really want it.
If I was to have a tattoo, it would have to be a cutie mark for sure. But even then I wouldn't enjoy getting a tattoo really.
The only tattoos I fully approve of are proper tribal ones, not "tribal" with people claiming they have a tribal tattoo when its some black lines thing as they are just faking it. But actual tribes of people who have the tradition of marking their bodies and have done for hundreds - thousands of years. When you have it as being a part of your tradition then it is fully acceptable and infact desirable, I would approve of seeing people with the markings of their tribes or clans from where they originated and even if they had them on their face etc. (which many likely do) I wouldn't hold anything against them for it when it came to work etc. But people who do such things in first world countries where such ancient traditions don't exist don't have any similar reasoning, they are doing it because they think it's a good idea or want to look cool, and not having the marks due to it being their ancient traditions and way of life.
Did anyone have a moment in their lives when they felt like getting their face tattooed? I've heard some people mention it also and it seems like most people during their youth get such an idea, of course most don't follow through with it as they know it will be stupid, but they still have the idea none the less.
