Girls Stupid Chinese Tattoo Means “Supermarket”
Posted by bmac on December 13, 2007
You know what my top post in the short history of this blog is? A post called “Tattoo’s Are Cool,” which I think was my third or fourth post after starting this blog. It’s consistently in my top post category for some reason. This story fits in with that post nicely.
This girl made all the classic tattoo mistakes. Stupid trendy tattoo (Chinese characters), and boyfriends name. It was bound to fail. At least she didn’t get a tribal band.
Tattoo’s have lost all rebel cred. They have become a symbol of desperation. Desperation to be viewed as a rebel, desperation to find meaning in your life, desperation for un-earned attention, and in a funny twist, desperation to fit in. A tattoo ain’t gonna give you any of those things. They will however, provide me with a lot of free entertainment.
And BTW, I’m sure there are millions of idiots walking around with Chinese characters on their bodies that say stuff a lot worse than supermarket.
