Girls and Tattoos

After a short absence due to personal reasons, I’m back! Here is an article that I have written fo Re.mu Avenue about girls and tattoos. I hope you like it!

Girls and Tattoos

By Gemma Vidal
The practice of tattooing is as old as human history. However, in recent years, tattoos have been progressively incorporated into our society for fulfilling purely aesthetic and artistic expression purposes. I have always thought that tattoos are a mysterious thing, full of questions. Why do people get a tattoo? When do they decide to do it? How do they decide what to tattoo? And where? Is it painful? (My pain threshold is very low!) Have they ever regretted getting it? I guess you have already figured that I have none!
It seems that for girls, stars are on top of the list of the most popular tattoos. Usually, they are combined with other designs but you can also see stars-only ones. In my opinion, small stars are an elegant choice.
imageTattoos of flowers are trendy among girls too, and I think that they are particularly attractive due to the variety of colors used in them.

Swallows and other birds. Generally, all birds look great as a tattoos.
image
Butterflies tattoos are also quite frequent among girls. Most of them think they are very feminine.

Kanji tattoos. Japanese drawings and Japanese and Chinese characters are extremely popular as well. Many people want to know their name in Chinese or Japanese to get it tattooed I recommend consulting an expert before doing it to avoid making terrible mistakes. You don’t want to have a tattoo that makes no sense, or one that says something stupid!

Tattoos always catch my eye, whether I consider them beautiful or ugly, big or small. Of course it is a totally personal decision; each person will have to live with it for the rest of his/her life unless it is removed with laser. But please, think twice before doing it!
Here you have some examples of what I consider bad tattoo choices: 
Faces: I find them scary and creepy.
image
 Fairies: They are childish and corny, not cute at all.
image
Cartoons: Naif and childish. It is becoming more common for adults (including myself) to watch cartoons, but from that to getting a tattoo there is a big step.
image
Tattoos are part of the image that you want to give to others, like your hairstyle or the clothes you wear. But these two are not permanent; you can change them several times a day. That’s why I emphasize the importance of thinking carefully before doing it wait until you are 100% sure.

    I definitely agree with you about the good and bad tattoos. The Chinese/Japanese symbols are great when they actually have the right meaning. Nice article!

    Just tips for the future- if you're writing a non-personal article, don't keep using "I." The article is not about you – the readers do not need to know if you personally find face tattoos creepy. Perhaps you can phrase it differently– comment that the realistic likeness of a human face is difficult to capture in tattoo and can sometimes end up slightly disturbing– but saying "Faces: I find them scary and creepy." sounds very colloquial and unprofessional, as if you were emailing a friend.

    Only commenting because you are an active blogger and I'd like to see you grow (I enjoy your blog~ sorry for the criticism~)

    Thanks for your feedback. This was my personal opinion and I don't mean to offend anyone. I appreciate your advise and I will keep it in mind for future articles. I'm learning, so my writing style evolves with the blog.
