I'd like to go back to the wholesome days of the eighties when strippers were classy enough to not have tattoos and piercings.

THIS

Ten thousand times, THIS.

Every girl nowadays is ruining her body with these things, it is depresing.

It is the in thing.  You are a freak if you don't have a tattoo.  I consider it part of the fall of society.  

When a society is on its way up, it emulates and wants to behave like the upper class.
When a society is on its way down, it emulates the lower class.

There are CEOs that don't wear business suits or look classy, they wear hoodies, jeans and sneakers, what the blue color workers work in.  At one time only prisoners had tattoos all over their bodies.

Society is on the way down, it is emulating the lower class.

It is an interesting idea. How have you reached that conclusion?

The quote, I don't know where I first heard it, the rest is an observation about the fall of society.

FWIW - my wife, a ranking executive - recently got a tattoo, on her lower, inner bicep. It is of a stylized hummingbird. 

I don't like it. I don't tell her I don't like it, she knows my opinions on ink, especially on girls. I managed to get through the entire punk and metal scene with only a small home-made cross on my upper shoulder that is so small it can be mistake for a mole. 

I've threatened to have it covered with a tattoo of me, getting a tattoo of me getting a tattoo. 

It startles me every time I see it. It is this alien black mark on her arm. My daughter drew the design, it is an homage to her grandmother - but, I certainly would have preferred some other method of self expression.

She could have Mother Theresa's virtue and Claudia Schiffer's body - I'd still find a tattoo on her unattractive and unappealing.

Friend of mine ( who is no longer with us ) was pretty much head to toe.  Not 'blanketed' but had them all over.

Face tattoos used to be a sure sign of someone who didn't plan on taking too many trips around the sun. 

These days, the guy might be the CEO of a startup in San Jose.

There's this climber girl who used to hang around the Gunks who had teh awesomest tribal face tattoo. Very much like Chakotay on Star Trek: Voyager, if you need a point of reference.

It's not what it used to be...

Her's was not on her face, it was on the base of her spine there at her skull so she could cover it with hair.    She at least had enough sense to have them where she could cover them up if need be. "unemployable" wasn't an option.

Arms and legs, you could see with normal "street" clothing. but others you could not see without permission.

I've been a Protestant my whole life. 

I reject the term "Protestant". It implies that the roman catholic "church" was one-and-the-same as the early Church founded in the Great Commission.

It isn't so much a description of the religious heritage, as the culture. More than a Protestant, I'm an *English* Protestant. 

It means something specific. It is basically an ethnicity. It is part of the reason why I am frequently mistaken for a local when I visit London. 

If you don't think of yourself as a Protestant, you probably aren't - especially if you think of it merely as a religious denomination or affiliation. 

It is also a thing where yes, most of the stereotypes exist for a reason.

Although it might be fair to describe me as a SECULAR (White Anglo Saxon) Protestant - which ties in with the thing about secular Jews. 

They tend to get along quite well and make good neighbors. They're both "Worry about your own affairs, and keep those affairs private," cultures.

Begin an atheist is so much easier. You dont have to figure out what version of something you are, or be told...   its pretty much black and white.
