Teen Has Tattoo Erased Out Of Year Book Photo

Oh come on.  I mean, I’m looking at this article right now and although I know that there are more important things in the world to be angered over than some teenager being denied the right to have her tattoo immortalised in a year book photo, I can’t understand why anyone would go to the trouble and effort of erasing a tattoo from someone’s photo.  Apparently, that’s exactly what the higher ups at Wasatch High School in Heber City, Utah decided was an appropriate course of action.

Granted, Wasatch High School is a Mormon school and they do have what are called “modesty” standards in place for their students, but are tattoos still really that big of a deal in 2014?  The tattoo in question that so deeply offended the staff of Wasatch High belonged to Shelby Baum.  The sophomore’s collar bone was tattooed with the words “I am enough the way I am”.  Baum was allowed to pose for her year book photo with the tattoo clearly exposed, but when the yearbooks were distributed, she discovered she had been edited.

‘The tattoo is a simple line of script Baum chose — after consulting the school dress code — to remind her of her journey out of difficult times during her childhood.

“My tattoo was a huge thing in my life,” Baum said, choking back tears. “I’ve come a long ways. My tattoo means a lot. It reminds me I am enough. For them to cover that up? They should inform me first. They never said anything to me.”‘

It seems to me that for young women especially, their teenage years are an extremely difficult time.  So many young women suffer from a lack of general confidence that often carries on into their adult lives.  A young girl who is emboldened by a tattoo is not a bad thing and should not be treated as such.  Her being proud of who she is does not deserve punishment, it deserves praise.  This entire incident only serves to underscores how the personal value of a tattoo is all too often belittled by those in positions of power and authority.

I don’t expect a lot of open-mindedness at any sort of religious institution, but it seems especially hypocritical to me that a religion such as Mormonism would condemn one of its followers for immodesty, given that the religion’s founder was after all, a convicted felon.  Furthermore, Baum’s alleged immodesty was not in fact, prohibited by the school’s dress code.

I sincerely hope that Shelby Baum doesn’t take her high school’s intolerance to heart.  She’s in the right.  All of you out there who have tattoos and are proud of them are in the right (unless of course your tattoo is of something truly inhumane and horrible.)  Power to everyone who gets strength from their tattoo.  You don’t ever have to justify it to anyone.

Ill Communication

As we’re all aware (or at least I hope we are), tattoos are permanent and when we get tattooed, the explanation from us to the tattooist should always be clear and concise.  There’s no point in only telling the artist a little about what we want, we have to be clear.  When clarity isn’t part of the equation, people get tattoos that they don’t necessarily want and will most likely regret.  It’s a pretty easy dynamic to comprehend: we help the tattoo artist, he or she helps us in return.  Right?

Well, not so fast.  A recent dispute in Wolverhampton, UK has lead to a tattoo artist getting himself into a little bit of hot water.  Tattooist Dan Flavell of the New Romantic Ink Tattoo Studio apparently decided that he’d had enough of miscommunication and in order to combat it, he put up a sign on the door to his shop.  The message of the sign?  ”If you can’t speak English, don’t even bother coming in.”  Wow.  That’s a doozy alright.  The sign caused no small amount of controversy and was eventually removed by Dan, several hours after he’d put it up.  As Dan explained, the reason for the sign was not intended to be racist:

‘Mr Flavell, who is in his mid 20s and runs the Berry Street shop with girlfriend April Gibson, said he took the sign down a few hours later after worrying it could be ‘misconstrued’.

He said: “We’re not racist. We would never dream of saying we won’t tattoo people because of their race or where they may be from.

“The reason for the sign is tattoos are permanent and we cannot take the risk of making a mistake because we cannot communicate with a customer.

“We had death threats on Wednesday when an Iranian man came in. The price was £90 for an tattoo he wanted on his back. But he only wanted to pay £70. He became very aggressive then got three friends who were waiting in a car outside to come in.

“He was threatening to kill us. We called the police and he was arrested.

“That’s when I wrote the sign. But then I took it down because I was worried something like this would happen and that some people might not understand what I meant by it.’

I can see both sides of this story.  For starters, as I previously stated, it’s vital that a tattooist know what’s going on with the work he’s doing, just as it’s vital that the customer understand as well.  If a customer can’t communicate due to a language barrier, things aren’t going to go well.  On that part I totally agree with Flavell.  But all that being said, there are much, much better ways to deal with problems of this nature than what Flavell did.  The biggest point here is that anyone who can’t speak English wouldn’t be able to read a sign in English!  I don’t think Flavell was being racist, I just think that he didn’t consider what he was doing.  The easiest way to deal with future situations like this is to make a sign in numerous languages stating that if you can’t effectively communicate with the artist, you will need  to bring an interpreter of some sort in order to aid the process.  If communication can’t be clear, then the artist won’t tattoo.  I think that this is an important lesson for all tattooists: no matter what, first and foremost you always have to help your customers to help you.  It’s that simple!

Oh yes please – this is a nice little documentary on Brooklyn, New York based tattoo artist Bailey Hunter Robinson.  It was made as part of an Italian series, so there’s a bit of Italian narration, but the interviews are all done in English.  If you’ve never seen any of Robinson’s work before, you need to check it out very soon. And you know what?  This video is a perfect place to start.

Did you know?

There is less probability for infection with Laser Liposuction because a smaller incision is required for the procedure. Also blood loss, a common complication with traditional liposuction, is minimal since the procedure is more accurate at targeting fat, and, therefore, does less damage to surrounding blood vessels. Any blood that does leak from a damaged vessel will evaporate from the heat of the laser.
