    Re: People using stereotypes with Tattoo art.

    Wow...um, did anyone tell the Japanese that Koi symbolize homosexuality?! Maybe that's why there are so many koi back pieces out there. So when...

    Sssssigh (eye rolls)...Some people, how do they come up with this kind of stuff?

    Re: People using stereotypes with Tattoo art.

    I had a funny one about 5 years ago driving from Dallas to Shreveport. I stop for gas in this hick town, and the lady behind the counter says, "Boy you got some nerve walkin' around like that." She points at the bat tattooed on my throat, "Everyone knows that's some Nazi shit on your neck, and in Texas it's illegal to even have a tattoo on your face or neck. You could be arrested for just standing here with that on your neck."

    I explained that I wasn't racist by any means, my tattoo wasn't associated with that, and that I'm a tattoo artist in Texas and know the laws. The very idea was ridiculous. She starts arguing and threatens to call the cops. I just shook my head and left. I was pretty pissed for a few minutes, then I just started laughing. It was so silly. Just pure ignorance, and making up her own ideas of symbolism and laws.

    What do you have tattooed on your neck if I can ask?

    Re: People using stereotypes with Tattoo art.

    I had a guy try to bust my balls and tell me my tattoos were feminine because I had flowers (I do have a lot of flowers). I saw this today on my FB feed and feel it SUPER relevant to this topic:

    Along the same lines from Jay-Z - "A wise man told me don't argue with fools, Cause people from a distance can't tell who is who." That line always really resonated with me.
