I'll talk about how people choose their tattoos. If you ever get one, you will discover a world of skeletons and snakes, dragons and skulls, vines and naked women. What in the name of Buddha has created this culture? This is the ugliest stuff I've ever seen. And people brand it permanently on their skin. Do you see Picasso, Mondrian, Pollack tattooed on people? No, it's skulls, dragons, butterflies and knives. Do you see the prose of TS Eliot, Yeates, Shakespeare? No, you see "Hasta la Muerte" and "Born to Fuck".Well, I do not know why people brand ugly stuff on their bodies either, but I can hazard a guess. Before tattoos became art, people got them to show other people how badass they were. With that purpose in mind, I think that getting the Mona Lisa inked onto one's body just doesn't quite cut it.
