I was out and about today and saw quite a few teen girls with tattoos. Not exactly a new phenomenon; I see them often enough at work, but today, it struck me as a little odd.
Maybe it’s just because the weather was warmer, or maybe because summer might actually be almost here, but I saw an ungodly number of tattoos on the back of the necks of these young girls. None of them were sporting ink in the usual location of a tramp stamp (and yes, they’d have been visible!) or any other place that I could see, and the images varied from a cross to wings to a few notes from a song to a heart with a date under it (not the girl’s own birthdate, as it was just a few years ago).
Has this become the new tramp stamp? Easy to cover up with longer hair but easy to show off if desired?
