Twilight Tattoos – WHY?!
So today for Whack-a-doodle Wednesday, I bring you .. Twilight Tattoos.
There are people, somewhere on this planet, who would think at best “My, that is a nice sentiment.” Sure but do I want it on my collarbone for all eternity or at least until death do we part? Ummm, no.
Don’t get me wrong. This is not a slam on body ink. I have three tattoos myself. I just think tattoos should mean something personal to you. Deep, spiritual, meaningful. Let me give you an example… a symbol of your religion, your childs face, something that reminds you of a departed loved one, a symbol of empowerment, not “Twilight forever”.
I know, it’s a free country. People are free to make total asses out of themselves. As an example of this, fresh from The People of WalMart website is something for you to think about. This woman has got to be someone’s Mom or old enough to be one. Aside from the fact that she’s eyeing the Kool Aid a bit too much she has Edward vampire eyes tattooed on her back! EYES and the word TWILIGHT on her back for the rest of her life. Was she high? Did someone drop her on her head as a child?
This whole trend of “who can be the most intense and hardcore idiot fan” is getting a little out of control. It comforts me a little to know that Robert Pattinson, the actor who plays Edward in these movies pretty much thinks his character is whack and so is Stephenie Meyer. Here is a clip from an interview he did:
“When I read it … I was convinced that Stephenie was convinced that she was Bella, and … it was like it was a book that wasn’t supposed to be published, like reading her — her sort of sexual fantasy about some — especially when she says that it was based on a dream, and it’s like, “Oh, then I had a dream about this really sexy guy” and she just writes this book about it, and there’s some things about Edward that are just so specific that … I was just convinced that this woman is mad, she’s completely mad, and she’s in love with her own fictional creation. And I sometimes … feel uncomfortable reading this thing, and I think a lot of people feel the same way, that it’s kind of voyeuristic … It creates this sick pleasure in a lot of ways.”
I think he nailed it. These books are juvenile, repressed sexual fantasies gone wrong. Creepy. What’s even more creepy are the myriad of tats to be found on the net. There were so many I couldn’t show them all here so here is a link for your viewing pleasure. The portrait of “Edward” who looks like he got hit by a truck is one of my favs.
Before I go, I want to leave you with the opinion of the King of the Jungle. A lion. Who is suppose to have a lack of higher brain function but after seeing some of these people, I’m not so sure.
Because even animals know how bad you fail.
