    6:05 - CONSPIRACY THEORY: watch in 0.25x and you’ll see an Inked logo flash on the screen quickly - this is some sort of flash advertisement to place ideas in your head.

    The confederate flag is not racist. It’s not about slavery or hate now it is a representation of southern culture.

    Wow it’s mega rude that the BDSM couple was trying to involve strangers in their sex life like that. That’s a huge no-no in the community. If he didn’t literally lead with “please tattoo my penis, it has to be a woman because girlfriend and I get off sexually on that” then they were failing to get proper consent.

    I have two questions for tattoo artists:
    1. How safe are UV tattoos and what are your opinions on them?
    2. Where is the best place for a tattoo? (without extenuating circumstances i.e. doesn’t have to be a place easily able to hide or anything.)

    • rexpwnzer
      rexpwnzer 10 days ago +1

      UV tattoos are relatively safe is done correctly but the glow does fade and you have to get it touched up every few years. As for placement it really depends on what your getting. How the tattoo sits where or how it maybe wraps the arm or curves your waist, ect.

    2:47, really? She really won’t do a confederate flag because she thinks it is racist and on the level with a swastika.🤦‍♀️ It’s part of US history and culture, and the part of having slaves was not the only reason that the civil war happened. 🤦‍♂️ smh

    It's funny how people hate on swastikas and nazism for hating minorities.. Ain't you doing the same exact shit? And I guess all of these righteous and ethical tattoo artists will have no problem with stamping Stalin or Trump or Bush or any other bad person on a client too? F**k your 21'st century double sided equality bulls**t...

    "The only tattoos I don't do are gang related tattoos or hate-related tattoos" as he wears a shirt with satanic symbolism on it. Just as hate filled and offensive or moreso, generally speaking.

    I remember when tattoo artist were super badass punk rock gangsters and didn't give a fuck. Now I hear tattoo artist using words like "hatespeech" when referring to a swastika. You can get tats and dress as trendy as you want, you can't change the dorky lame ass you are though.

    wtf, are all of them uneducated to this extend ?
    100's of millions of people wear as symbols, carry as trinkets or draw/paint different varieties of swastika's all over the planet that aren't related to Nacizm in ANY way.
    Swastika goes back before Jainisim, Byzant, Buddhism, Hinduism, Greek or Roman religions and they have all used it and respect it greatly in differtent ways.

    It's sad how a beautiful symbol like Swastika which has meaning like welcome and namste(their are verious other meaning depending on it's time, position or ritual)became symbol of racism and hate, I think people should be educated about it rather than scoffing at by still misunderstanding it with some racist symbol.... It's sad!!.

  • Dominus Ghaul
    Dominus Ghaul 2 months ago

    "She asks me, of all people, to tattoo a swastika." Uhh... what? Little Asian homegirl certainly doesnt look Jewish, and the Nazis were allied with the Japanese. Nor were Asians part of any Nazi occupation or execution... so I'm not exactly sure what she was trying to get at with the "of all people" line. Do people really not know who or what the Nazis were? Do they think that symbol somehow just means "racism"? And I'm not even using that old corny defense of saying it's a Hindu symbol. But even during Nazi times, for the Nazi party, the symbol had nothing to do with their view toward races. It was a fucking political symbol and a flag. The same as the American flag, or the stupid donkey/elephant symbols for Democrats/Republicans. I get not wanting to tattoo a swastiska... but her choice of words for her reasoning was fucking retarded. Somehow I am not surprised.

  • Hawt Pink Shlickem
    Hawt Pink Shlickem 2 months ago

    I don’t think the confederate flag and the swastika are mutually exclusive. I mean everyone says the flag is racist, but I’m pretty sure there is a lot of other history behind it, aside from its negative connotation. Like it represents the south and that’s all it represents to some people. If there is even one statistic then it counts. I’m sure that in some cases however it does represent racism. But some gang bangers will kill you for a color you are wearing. So now certain colors are bad as well? It’s like where is the line drawn?
    Swastika? No. Confederate flag? Sure.
    I’m also not a tattoo artist though.
    Based off the colors and the way it’s designed though, I think the confederate flag just simply looks cool, so there would probably be people getting it for that reason too.
