How do you perceive people with tattoos? Do you think of them as troubled souls who desperately need help with personal issues? Why is it now that we live in a society that thinks its okay to judge people of their appearance? I just turned 18 a couple weeks ago and two days after I turned 18 I got my first tattoo.
