Hair and There

This is 100% strictly an opinion piece and I will state upfront that I have a HUGE aversion to body hair. I love facial hair of all kinds on men but the rest of the body, not so much! This blog will be from this very biased opinion.

I strongly feel that tattoos look a million and one times better if there is no hair on the region and space that they occupy. A hairless tattoo is by far cleaner looking, more detailed and the colors and shading stand out the way both the artist and inkee intended them to.

I cannot believe that any single person in the history of tattoo art thought to themselves, "Now how would this look with a mass of hair covering it?" In fact, I imagine that every person that is thinking about their final inked product imagines it crisp, eye and sun catching and un-impeded. Would a painter cover their stunning art in a layer of moss? Then why would we as responsible tattooed folk?

Surely the argument of time will come into play for many, but can your responsibly neglect this crucial task, to deny the tattoo is freedom to speak clearly to the viewer is just cruelty in my eyes. God forbid a person need to part the hair on your arm in order to read the beautiful verse that is underlying, or the waft of curls on your chest to realize that what they thought was a hairy blob is in fact a stunner of a family crest.

In my opinion almost all body parts should see a razors edge or waxed strip regularly, tattooed or not, but let’s not get too crazy off the hop. Be a responsible inkee and keep that nonsense tamed and coiffed for the sake of those who want to appreciate the art...or for me, and anyone else in the world...anyone?, that just thinks that the Caveman era is long past, never to see revival (and that especially goes for you ladies)!

And in a separate, random thought...everything just looks better without hair, coats, cats, Guinea Pigs...well almost everything anyway (ever searched a hairless bear. yikes!!)
