    sorry to butt in here guys - but many ppl have great respect for things from different cultures and honor them, buy them, visit them, wear them, listen to them, eat them, have them tattooed on our bodies

    not every instance of someone appreciating something from a culture not ones own - is cultural appropriation. do you only enjoy things from your own culture? doubt it.

    the cultural appropriation argument gets moldy when no questions are asked - and only assumptions are made.

    perhaps a bit of human interaction would solve A FU34 TON of issues, least of which the idiocy displayed here on this thread by a small few.

    @bodyhard - sorry ppl out there don't understand tattoo collectors - i deal with it too - oh well - good thing we don't have to be with them all the time

    tattoo collectors are some of the coolest ppl i've met over the years and their appreciation for other cultures and the ultimate show of honoring them, permanently inking artwork, symbols, words - is also very cool, in my not so fu34ing humble opinion.....

    (middle finger emoji) idiots

    EDIT: @bodyhard - i have no clue why you doin' it - also don't care - looks cool - nice work

    Tattoos are a funny thing. When I was little it seemed like only scary looking bikers and guys in the Navy had tattoos. Now the soccer mom shopping at Target has a sleeve.

    Some women look hot with tats.

    I wouldn't say scary looking, but when I was a kid I viewed tats on only gang members, in fact I have a gang/jail tat on my right hand which is the stupidest thing you will ever see. However I keep it as it reminds of the things I did and it keeps me grounded. Its about the only tat I have on me that means something and it is the ugliest thing you will see. During my life I've always covered it whenever I went into an interviews, my other two tats prior to now getting this one are tribal.

    All my tattoos are very personal and I have one particular one that is a simple glass that reminds me of a buddhist story about non attachment so that when I see it every morning I remember the story and I remember to apply it to my life. In a way I think your prison tattoo works in a similar way. That being said nothing wrong with getting quality work done because you like the way it looks. Yours looks great by the way.

    Provided it’s quality work and not vulgar I love tattoos on women, in fact I married a woman with a few. I would much prefer a quality sleeve on a woman as opposed to the “edgy” sorority girl with a tiny dolphin on her ankle.

    Johnny, I know you have been waiting for my approval, so thank you for your patience.

    You have the official approval of the White Man.

    Anyone have a problem with that, deal with it.

    Perfectly understood, how many tats you have?

    Lots of folks are saying I will eventually do my other side, but the two tribal tats I have are roughly 10 years apart and now this one is about another 10 + years from the last one

    Absolutely!!

    I am thankful for cultural appropriation. If I didn't dress like a White man, I'd be going to work wearing a loin cloth and riding a goat instead of Nissan.

    And here in PA, that would make my nutsack shrivel in the winter and it would take six hours to get to work. Cuz goats are slower than Japanese cars.

    So to all you White People out there, thanks for letting me 'appropriate' your culture.

    the cultural appropriation argument gets moldy when no questions are asked - and only assumptions are made.

    perhaps a bit of human interaction would solve A FU34 TON of issues, least of which the idiocy displayed here on this thread by a small few.

    @bodyhard - sorry ppl out there don't understand tattoo collectors - i deal with it too - oh well - good thing we don't have to be with them all the time

    tattoo collectors are some of the coolest ppl i've met over the years and their appreciation for other cultures and the ultimate show of honoring them, permanently inking artwork, symbols, words - is also very cool, in my not so fu34ing humble opinion.....

    (middle finger emoji) idiots
    The cultural appropriation argument is a unique obsession we have in the United States. I have found that people from those cultures who we've supposedly "appropriated" aren't nearly as offended as people born in the US who have no real connection to that culture. A few years ago, there was white girl in the news because she wore a qipao (Chinese traditional dress) to the prom. Of course, the usual suspects were outraged at the "cultural appropriation" as were many Chinese academics and students. The catch? The most vocal critics were born and educated in the United States. Chinese people who were actually from China thought the hysteria surrounding it was ridiculous, and found it flattering that a person outside of their culture could appreciate its unique aesthetics.

    You aren't getting territorial over tattoos are you?

    Exactly!!!

    Leftists are usually the ones who scream 'cultural appropriation!!'

    True story. There was a Black man at my gym years ago. He was a boxing instructor. I even strength-trained some of his competitive boxers.

    He also taught arnis / escrima.

    One day I gifted him a pair of authentic Filipino fighting skills. Because, to your point, I was flattered that he would take the time to spread my culture.

    Before warring parties engage in bloodbath, they scare each other basically.

    And there were no prisoners. Because the losing team literally lost their heads.

    Good thing it's not a thing anymore. But they kept up with the tradition. So the culture carried over to sporting events.

    I guess I just can't wrap my head around scaring someone with a dance. I thought maybe like they had prisoners in cages or something then do the dance letting them know their fate was to have their head chopped off.

    When my son's track team repeated as state champs (he was MVP), they did the Haka. They'd practiced it extensively ahead of time in anticipation. I'm sure he'd think it's cultural appropriation now, but they had fun.

    Honestly I didn't even know it was a Polynesian tat until I kept getting turned down by the local tattoo artist. I just googled Chest and Sleeve tat and saw the pic and said, Yup this is what I want. But every freaking tattoo place I went to kept telling me they don't do Polynesian tats. So then I started researching what tattoo parlor does Polynesian Tats and bam I found one!
