Concern That Tattoos Are Losing Non-Conformist Appeal

Well, yeah, even stupid whitebread me has one, now, so they've likely lost their rebellious outcast sexiness.

"For a lot of younger people, tattooing has become part of life, like buying a pair of shoes," said Spider Webb, 60, who has published books on the art of tattooing since the 1970s. "It's like computers, no one used to have them, now everyone has; no one (they knew) had tattoos, now everyone has."

When a guy named Spider Webb calls something passe, you'd best consider it passe.
