It’s hard to be yourself (whatever it means) these days, so maybe we shouldn’t even try? In case of doubt we can always use some ‘great’ advice from the mass media: tatoos for men, tattoo artists we should follow on some social site, we should change our way of thinking about nerds, finally, it’s so old-fashioned to take a selfie with your camera (it’s about phones, kids!).
In case you doubt your own judgment, you can always see how others perceive you and your esthetics: ‘do piercings make women attractive?’ (because men are always attractive, right?). If you get angry at others for judging you and your tattoos, you can always state how proud of them you are but it will come at a price – others have the right to express their opinions about you as it’s shown in ‘Toowoomba ladies proud of their ink (while others not so much :D).
Much better it is when it comes to be just a colorful and good human being: an American soccer player for PETA, a tattoo-a-thon for Cancer Sucks in Tulsa, OK and marketing joining the alternative lifestyle against skin cancer!
