I just love the fact that when I go looking for tattoo-related news on the internet the vast majority of the “articles” (we’re using that term loosely) that pop up go a little something like this:
- - Lady Gaga got a tattoo, which she now said is “an ode to her fans.”
- Rihanna got yet another tiny banger tattoo, which she will talk about candidly on her next interview with 20/20.
- An Olympian you’ve never heard of before now gets some sick ink.
- Nas wants the portrait tattoo on his forearm of ex-wife, Kelis, removed.
- That one dude from Jersey Shore added more tattoos, in case you didn’t know he was Italian already.
- Amy Winehouse doesn’t want the tattoo of her junkie ex-husband’s name on her chest anymore.
On and on about these famous folks and their generally non-visible tattoos… I’m over it. Unless they’re doing something big & beautiful (which, considering how well off these celebrities tend to be financially, doesn’t happen often) I don’t want my newsfeeds clogged with this crap.
No, I don’t care how many relationship tattoos are going to be removed by superstars. No, I don’t care about some tiny tattoo every girl will suddenly start replicating and try to pretend she didn’t steal it of [insert superstar name here]‘s recently released promo photos. No, I don’t care that some silly celeb got a tattoo in Italian and one of the words was misspelled.
I can’t be the only one sick of reading this stuff. Since when is that kind of stuff considered “news” anyway? How is this more important than… well, anything really?
