JLBE1555 | Tattoos, Sharing Stories, Sam de Brito

This is an audio recording of a reflective piece I wrote on the night of Monday, October 26, 2015. It covers the topics of tattoos, sharing stories, and Sam de Brito.

In the audio I refer to what I wrote as ‘stream of consciousness’. Apparently that is a technical term to describe a certain type of narrative which this piece might not fall under. You learn something every day.

    It is quite a rare thing nowadays to find a young person (particularly a female), that does NOT have tattoo’s. It is not attractive. I used to listen to Charles Giuliani years ago when he was broadcasting on Oracle. Will give this one a listen.

      Walking and driving around south east Melbourne the past week has been sobering to say the least.

      White people appear to be the minority already. And among white people, tattoos seem entirely commonplace now.

      I would be pleasantly surprised if the proportion of, say, 30-year-old white people, in this part of the world, without tattoos, was >20% at this point in time.

      The non-whites do not appear to be as heavily tattooed as the whites. Not even close, actually.

      I suppose this is partly due to less aesthetic appeal (tattoos are harder to see on dark skin) and partly due to cultural factors (1st gen immigrant kids probably aren’t as easily swayed by pop culture).

      With all of that said, yeah, it is a complete shit-show out there now. Tattoos are so prevalent today that I don’t think so many people really will ‘regret’ it in twenty years.

      The tatts make them normal now. Why would they regret doing something which makes them normal? Maybe the face tatts will be regretted, and the all-body tatts, but the stock standard symbol on the back, or on the wrist, or whatever? So normal now as to not be any cause for regret even twenty years down the line. Almost like a mark of normie initiation into adulthood.

      WATTBA.
