CBS News Piece on Tattoos and Domestic Violence

Recommended Posts

How common is this really? Stuff like this can easily be misconstrued as the rule for the whole of women who end up with a man's name on them. I do feel bad for that rape victim though.

I've seen it :(

I don't know how *common* it is... but I know it happens out there...

Or fathers/father figures need to teach boys how to be men; this stuff starts early. Just my .02

I agree wholeheartedly. My wife and I strive to set a good example for our kids. It always warms my heart to see my boy do the simple little things like open the door for someone, share with kids at school, and just generally try to be a good little dude.

The flip side to this, and it relates to the article in certain ways, is that we teach him and my daughter (especially my daughter) that they deserve that same respect in return. Also that they should gravitate towards those that treat them well.

    • Thanks for the advice and warm welcome! I think I will try out a new artist for my next one. One more thing, this next tattoo will fill up the last large space on my lower arm. I have a bunch of small filler tattoos I want although I am not very particular about the placement or even the design, would it be normal to let an artist know I have some random spaces, and give them 8-10 things I want but let them choose 2-3 to tattoo or do you think it would be preferred to just provide the specifics when scheduling. I am not typically very picky and since they'd be choosing from a list I would be pretty comfortable letting someone more artistic than me choose what makes sense in the available space.
    • Welcome! Those are sweet tattoos. I say do both. You can have it all. 🙂
    • My artist has done my sleeves and my legs, but I occasionally go and get a tattoo from someone else. I love his style, and I want him to finish what he started on my sleeves, but I like fill-ins from others. Just depends on what you want.
