Wish These Were My Parents, I’d Be So Proud
From my blog The Conformity of Non-Conformity or How I Learned to Love the Tattoo,
Noted psychiatrist Dr. Stephen Marmer stated on Dennis Prager’s nationally syndicated radio show sometime ago that individuals who have not done anything to earn recognition will get a tattoo as a way of saying look at me, I’m somebody.
I quoted Thomas Sowell in my blog Look At Me,
People can get attention either from their accomplishments or from their deliberate attempts to get attention. Today, almost everywhere you look, people seem to be putting their efforts into getting attention.
Wild hairdos, huge tattoos, pierced body parts, outlandish clothing, weird statements -- all these have become substitutes for achievements.
So lovers of ink, what do you think? I am just asking because I doubt that the little boy requested the hair style all by himself.
