Tattoos & the Media
Tattoos are everywhere our teens are. . .Tattoo video games, Tattoo reality shows, Tattoo blogs, Tattoo ads, Tattoo toys, Tattoo billboards, Tattoo magazines and
ink, ink, ink.
Really. . .did barbie need a tattoo?
So its no wonder the decision to get inked can be easy and quick for some people.
“Everyone is doing it.”
Its too bad the media doesn’t spend time on finding out ten years later if the luster is still there.
The real issue is the effect on impressionable youths across the world that come to see a tattoo as not just common, but expected. With tattoos on the NBA players, video game characters, dolls, action figures, celebrities, models, and teachers, what are our modern students to think? But the emphasis should also be on the thought process that should go into getting a tattoo. The research and reflection that every tattoo deserves.
Think before you INK.

Denver radio host Mike Evans got a Tim Tebow tattoo after losing a bet that the Broncos wouldn’t win 8 games in a season, he lost and then got the Tebow tattoo below. I bet laser tattoo removal is also in his future.
