Interesting how many comments using the term “trashto”. That everyone with
a tattoo is shallow hipster garbage. I have two, and I have yet to find
anyone with the same, and the third I’m getting I designed (along with a
lot of other ones I’m planning on getting). But even if it is a common one,
the same tattoo can mean something completely different depending on the
person. People often get a tattoo because they want to mark something about
themselves or something that happened. Tattoos are highly symbolic, it’s
not about the image it’s about the meaning behind it.
Song is Bill Blood – “Being in love” … Spotify link here:
very well shot, kudos
Love how every fucking person on youtube is an expert on every subject, Not
everyone gets tattoos and it is nowhere near mainstream and neither will it
ever be, fuck off.
Guys can i ask what camera you mainly shoot with as i love the look of your
If you like tattoos wacht Tattoo Age !!!!!!!!
i used to live in dublin
had a harsh time finding a job with my tattoos
ended up having to cover them up.
Yeah he is so right, 10 years ago it was only in the metal and hardcore
scene and sorta kinda making its way elsewhere. Now it has blown up and
everyone has them.
This was really wonderful in every aspect, I loved it! I am writing a paper
on a similar topic, and I would love to use this as a source, is there a
director I can cite?
Some of the tattooers in this made some good points. But man. Nobody has to
accept your tattoos or how you look. Accept yourself. You can be a whinny
flag waving hipster with you gay ass face tattoos and fancy haircut and
Victorian beard. what the FUCK are you hipsters gonna do when your wanna be
traditional tattoos are no longer the cool vintage style.
Tattoos aren’t always stupid…mine is very meaningful and I love it!
this “documentary” if it can be called that i just a faggot hipster self
indulgent millennial peice of trash. Peope with trashtoos need to get one
thing straight: Its not expressing yourself! Someone ELSE used your body
for their self expression and your hipster untalented ass is just walking
around holding their drawing (a 5 yr old can draw most trashtoos).
And you walk around like you’re cool when u didn’t even draw it. How i
can’t think of something more pathetic. Oh and by the way…Trashtoos don’t
look beautiful or cool…they look like garbage on the ground.
Can you guys please check out my documentary on tattoos, with no budget
I am hella tattd neck and sleeve and I am 22 im an idoit
Alot of incredibly talented tattoo artist will tell you that not every
tattoo has to mean something special to you, or resemble something. Most
tattoo’s are on peoples skin because they look fucking sick, not because
its to honour their grandma or something.
Tattoos are accepted but from a poor reason. That being that is not much
about culture or what it meant at one point only that its tempting to get
one because its what people hype up. Same thing with clothes. It’s hard to
find something pure or something done with pure intentions
I have been apart of the tattoo culture and lifestyle since 2003, I was
only 16 going to hardcore shows in Jacksonville, Florida, and I have
watched so many tattoo trends come and go, and it made me change my path
back then this lifestyle was so underground and now its blown up. I have
tattoos but mine are so original and completely unique and things I came up
with. Being patient and waiting to get tattoos is the best advice I can
give to anyone. It is super easy to get 20 stars on your arms, or dumb
stuff on your chest. It is super hard to be original and creative and come
up with your own tattoo ideas. Be PATIENT everyone.
If one more dickhole says “hipster” or “trashtoo”, I’m going on a killing
spree…. People need to grow the fuck up.
Hey America…No one wants to see nor cares about your trashtoo’s
this emo documentary like trashtoos is just self indulgent crap
Whats the name of the song that plays at 1:25 -1:45
Glad I found this! Good shit mates
Beauty’s in the eye of the beholder
Agreed on that. It sounds like the audio was recorded on an iPhone.
This is brilliant! If I can add a tip? The narrator needs to get a better
microphone or a pop filter 🙂 Great though 🙂
Cool or not, I’ll always love my ink
Anybody who doesn’t accept tattoos isn’t worth having as a friend.
A waste of money making stupid looking people even more stupid looking.
awesome 🙂 i shall keep sharing
