Quoting baking my bun:" Well, yeah...?"



How? I don't think they are stupid, i don't think they are gang-bangers or anything like that. I never think they are bad parents, irresponsible or bad people. I don't think anything negative about them.



How is being a bartender, a waiter, a tattoo artist, a mechanic or whatever a negative thing? You would only say I have a negative opinion of someone who has body modifications if you think negatively of said workers. :?

Mechanics can be highly paid... anyway, I have worked my ass off for my position in society and for someone to just look at me and assume I work an underpaid job would piss me off. Looks mean nothing.

It's a simple first impression... doesn't mean I snub anyone or am ever rude to them and the majority of my friends have some sort of modifications (many are simple) as do I (tattoo).

Where I work I'm in the minority not having lime green or bubble-gum pink hair and twenty piercings on mt face.

No not at all but I can't help but think that the tattoos look so nasty. I think they look pretty gross lol but that's just me. I don't think any less of the person. My SO has four of them on his arms.

Body modifications do not define you as a parent.

All the occupations you just mentioned are typically decent paying jobs? The mechanics at the railroad I work at make around $60k a year to start.



I think people sometimes associate blue collar with unsuccessful. My SO and I are both educated. We chose blue collar trades. I'm an operator, he's a truck driver. We make well over six figures together.



Hell even my father. He's been a mechanic for 34 years, talk about making money. That man does.

Yes, I think they are beyond gross looking but everyone I know has some, I don't think anything less of them as people. I just personally think tattoos are ugly looking.

To each their own, but I don't think they fall under the categories of "gross" & "nasty" for people who say they don't like them. I have 1 tattoo & plan on many more. I think body art is beautiful. There is some body art where it makes me :?: why they got it because to me some of them look so hideous or poorly done.

My dad was a truck driver in the USA for awhile too!



Around here, not high paying jobs... sad, really, but yeah...
