Show Us Your Tattoo's

im sorry but plugs did not start becoming popular till the 90's
wrong, maybe 'popular' with you in the 90s... I know quite a few people that have had em since before I was born. them being 'popular' isn't in question. there not 'popular' now. they've reached other 'groups'.. now dbags like little Wayne are gonna bring it to a place I don't want it to go

come to socal... they are popular here... anyhow you sure got really defensive really fast. im sorry if the fact that the roots of what your doing influences my opinion of it but it is what it is..... i dont look down on anyone with those but i do wonder why one wants to do that considering its roots. I feel the same way when i see a white guy with asian tattoo work. i dont judge them but first thought is i wonder why they got that. Same thing with the ear plates


ps... having a band on your arm is pretty gay. i knew a guy who got barb wire around his arm. we gave him shit :lol: really tho meanings dont mean shit and not what i was trying to get into. i have a tattoo that means something to mafia that i never knew about untill i built a pool for a guy who was from back east somewhere. he looked at my tattoo and gave me a crazy look. prison tattoo's also have symbolisum as well but in todays age not every spiderweb on a elboe means that person actually did time.
 
this is my point... i just did a quick google on the origin of ear gauges and a reply to someone that was asking...
People have been enlarging or elongating their ear lobes for hundreds, if not thousands of years. I remember seeing South American indians with plugs in their ears back in the 1950's and 1960's, in National Geographic. (Links above are to SE Asia; Sarawak, on the island of Borneo, specifically.)
my point exactly... one is not being judgmental or out of line for thinking that when they see one. maybe not for a younger crowd but for older guys it is because thats what we seen. the first for me was the African ones that stretch their necks as well so tahts the impression that stuck with me.. for this person it was the south Americans in the jungle.

but im saying this- you quoted that to prove to me that my ears are stretched thanks to south African indians in national geographic in the 50s because they had ears stretched... BUT they also had tattoos, but that doesn't count?
 
no i did not. i quoted that because i made a statement about my view of that fad and you went off on all kinds of stuff. The quote backs up what i was pointing out. i never said that you do it because of some african roots... thats just what i think when i see one because of things i have seen growing up. i guess i should have made it more clear that because of that this ear plug thing is not for me. I in no way look down on anyone because they have this.

to answer you question no it does not count because the tattoo's where not what the media was covering and at that time tattoo's were already pretty well known. its just times were different and people had different opinions about them back then. for the most part that is. tattoo's are irrelevant to the conversation as far as im concerned... if i didn't have one you wouldn't be bringing it up.

you never actually said why you do it and it dont really matter as you can install horns in your head as far as i care. I am sorry if my view on something offends you but "look at all the fucks i give" :P
 
Setting roots aside, I dont see why anyone would do that...
its just an image that one likes i suppose. im not 100% and id guess it differs for each person... without being defensive id like to hear why jhutch is into it.
 
:prof: the same reason people are into tattoos. its literally the same thing. just a different way. it just surprised me that somone with a decent amount of tattoos was throwin some, what i felt as disses, about it..
heres what tats/ stretched ears are supposed to be ----->> :hifive:
heres what tats/ stretched ears were yesterday here ---->> :forman:

and i should probably follow this with :P :smirk:

i never meant it to be a diss. sorry if the truth offended you :noidea:

not anywhere near the same as tattoo's BTW. i got into tattoo's because all the men around me growing up had them. usually the traditional american tat. you saying that people around you had ear plugs while you where growing up ?

also my personal opinion is that tattoos are beautiful. i honestly do not find stretched earlobes good looking in any way. that in no way means that i would judge what type of person someone is. like i said i wonder why they wanted to do that. i imagine a lot of people who see my back when i take my shirt off wonder why i would have such a huge spiderman scene. first impressions is prolly that im a comic book nerd. :noidea: its expected

The way I see it is tattoos is artwork and stretched earlobs is...I dont know. I dont understand why you want a gaping hole in your ear. Dont see anything prideful in it, seems like a fad to me. A tattoo can tell a story, I wouldn't see how a big hole in your ear would.

But, I have neither one of them, and I dont know anyone with stretched lobes. If you like it, then go for it. But I also think tribal when I see it. I remembered seeing it in magazines, books, or school and they were African tribes. I remember them getting popular just a few years ago.

My 2 cents
