This article appeared in the local paper, talking about a growing outrage at a tattooed barbie. It is evident even in a modern society the stigma and the judgement placed around tattooed individuals. The highlighted quote is a perfect example “Wrong Wrong Wrong, why not put a cigarette and a beer bottle in her hand while your at it?”
It’s even interesting to see the difference in peoples reactions when I go out with my tattoos covered or visible. It is disappointing how large a number of people will avoid the “girl with tattoos” and will happily strike up a conversation with the “lovely woman”.
