That’s what we asked ourselves, for starters. But let’s see how bad one of these designs is. If you don’t do a deep closeup of his belly button, it’s going to be tough to tell.
In all seriousness, tattoos like these don’t fit with their owner’s personality. But is it even necessary to get a tattoo that will be offensive in any way? Probably.
When I first moved to NYC, there are no tattoos that looked particularly offensive. It was pretty much the norm for me to get a tattoo that is pretty generic, rather than something like “The Black Power Mixtape.” When I moved to San Francisco, the only one I had to wait two years for was a “Hail To The King” style that I thought was rather un-San Francisco, to be honest. I was really not into the imagery, and actually had to leave it in my closet because it was too offensive.
I remember one day that I was in a group of young kids, and a fellow kid pointed to my tattoo, saying, “You’re an asshole.”
I immediately felt horrible. There was actually a small, awkward moment where I didn’t want to do what I was doing, and I felt very betrayed. I wasn’t expecting it. I was actually trying hard to be kind.
I was probably looking for something that was kind of generic or just different from everyone else, but it ended up being a bit offensive in a way that’s borderline disturbing.
There are also some people who are just drawn to tattoos with images of black people in them or people with tattoos. There’s something about the act of getting a tattoo, in some small way, that is associated with being a black person. There’s that whole feeling of wanting to represent their community through that skin.
But it seems that there’s a more universal factor than the color of one’s skin. We know that blacks are more likely to be violent than whites, so we’re more interested in getting a tattoo that represents a strong black person.
And, as an article in Psychology Today points out, most people have tattoos that signify their sexual identity too.
Some tattooing, like mine, could also serve a practical role, like a way to tell potential employers that you’re a woman but don’t really have a desire for sex.
We don’t really need a whole section in The Atlantic or InStyle dedicated to black art because black people can’t find work
