slang terms that make you cringe?

Recommended Posts

People with swag are awesome, they rarely mess up my order and make sure my fries are hot!!!

well that's gotta be some next-level swag, cause they're always forgetting the hotsauce and putting ice in my drink.

Say what now? (ps: this drawing is still better than the tattoo I posted earlier. As such, I get a free pass to say "I wanna use my tatgun to tattyzap this, bro".

It's funny cause it looks like a cock. Wearing pants. squid Pants.

All those terms are fine by me.... As long as a tattooer is using them. If the person doesn't tattoo and uses them, I wanna smash their head down into their neck.

I'm a jerk

that's me ! * nodding head*

I hate hate hate it when friends or random strangers without any tattoos start dropping words like tat, inked etc but I don't care one bit when its a person with a tattoo or covered etc, and hey my name here has the word inked ;)

I frequently have un- or barely-tattooed coworkers discussing my "ink" or "tats" with me. Those terms, or variations thereof, make my skin crawl. I think because it implies a familiarity - a "tight bros from way back when," if you will - that they very clearly don't have. Maybe I thought to much about it.

That being said, I enjoy saying "zaps." I think I'm using it in a tongue-in-cheek manner, but I imagine that doesn't make it any less obnoxious.

I recently read on instagram a tattooist write something along the lines of doing tatty zappin- it just sounded really immature. something I would have expected to hear from young boys in early high school trying to sound cool...

I'm not a fan of slang in general. I call them tattoos, done by a tattoo machine tipped with a needle filled with ink.

I guess I say a tattoo is "done" instead of "tattooed." That's as "slang-y" as I get.

I hate hate hate when non tattooed folk see a B&G tattoo and call it a "black and white" tattoo. I used to correct them, but now if I hear it I let it slide because I know other tattooed folk will be able to use that as their cue to stop talking to that person about tattoos. It's almost like a name tag that says "I know jack shit about tattoos"

    • Lmao... yeah, I was probably going to go along with it. But there were other people in my profession who were forced to “cover up” their spiderweb tattoos because people made complaints that they made them feel uncomfortable and linked them to racism 🙄, And the employer enforced the covering. Also, there is history with them being used in prisons, having served time, and other such negative backgrounds. Which *I* personally know is not the case and that interpretation is pretty antiquated, but there are still people out there who assume. Then again, I guess when someone sees someone with any tattoo they already have preconceived assumptions no matter what.  
    • LOL  what could possibly be "one of them being the history and interpretations that could be made about spiderwebs on the elbow"   ?  if you are worried about what other people think about your tattoos, STOP GETTING TATTOOS RIGHT NOW !   2nd, I was going to say, put a spider web on your elbow with a skeleton spider on it.
    • I recently got a pretty grim mermaid skeleton. I love it! What do you guys think might make a good filler in the naked elbow area? Artist suggested some webbing details, but I’m not sure for a few reasons, one of them being the history and interpretations that could be made about spiderwebs on the elbow. Anything else that might look good here?
