Let me preface this post by saying that I think the tattoos people–particularly celebrities–choose to put on their bodies are fair game to discuss. I have tattoos on a considerable portion of my skin, and if somebody doesn’t like them, then that is okay with me (provided they don’t touch without asking or remind me that I’ll one day age like I don’t already know that). So, when I saw all the photos Justin Bieber had taken by the Miami Beach PD, I felt compelled to post about them.
Not all of Justin’s tattoos are aesthetically displeasing to my eye, but some of them are downright heinous and look like he got them at a Juggalo house party. No, really:
With the exception of the jester tattoo, none of them are too horrible…but I would still like to know the names of almost all of these so I can avoid going to any of the shops that did them.
Like I said, nobody is required to please me or anyone else with how they choose to make their body look. I, for one, know I have disgusted more than a few people with my scarification piece, but I knew a lot of folks would not dig it when I got it, so who cares? Normally, I would not run around critiquing people’s tattoos unless I were criticizing the spelling and grammar or the idea of them. For example, if somebody were to get a racist tattoo, an image that depicted rape or violence, or anything along those lines, then I would criticize them without a second thought. In Bieber’s case, the subject who has gotten the tattoos is a total tool with little regard for those around him, so again, I feel no remorse.
