    I agree, stereotypes are beyond passe! Yet people still continually play up to them sadly!
    Also did you happen to notice that the story about the woman who’s getting her pets tattooed on her was filed under weird? What’s so strange about that? Then again to us being the tattoo addicts we are this is anything but!

    No, I didn’t but am not surprised – once I saw a tattoo convention report from a small southern country categorized like that.

    A vast majority of these articles is written by people who are either un- or just slightly modified, so going a step or two further than a small tattoo is already considered weird/unusual; even if most articles start along the ‘it’s not uncommon these days…’ or ‘long gone are the days when tattoos …’ lines, for many people out there, authors included, it still is something quite uncommon.
