It really does not matter when the celebrity gets the tattoo, before they are famous or after. It usually has to do with peer pressure, and what their friends have.
What kind of ghetto friends are you hanging out with, to want to do that to their bodies?
What were you on when you thought it was a good idea to get a tattoo? Where you on prescription drugs, illegal drugs, marijuana, heroin, vicodin, oxycontin, or were you drinking? Are you an alcoholic? Did you learn it at alcoholics anonymous? are you drunk all the time?
I was watching this video of amy winehouse not rehab, but a 2006 british video, before amy had her heroin chic style. before the swing inspired look of classic America. but most of all, before the trademark tattoo's. Its obvious to me and to everyone, that she got the tattoos when she was drunk or on drugs, and that she got them after she became famous.
I saw a girl dressed for haloween in a amy winehouse costume, complete with the big hair, mole, and arms full of tattoos. What you have to remember is that when you are that talented, that people want to be just like you, dress like you, and get all the tattoos like you. How could you want to do that to children? Besides amy winehouse most pro athletes in basketball's NBA have tattoo's. Really, How can you do that to your fans?
David Stern made the players dress better, but why can't he do something about the ghetto look or prison style tattoos? Its really odd, because theses are multi million dollar men, that look like tall ghetto people.
If you look at self destructive people like Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears who went to rehab to try and save their lives, and who also have tattoo's. Lindsay it looked, tried to have a laser remove some of them on her body, becuase she realized the mistakes she made while intoxicated by drugs and drinking.
please don't make these mistakes, and please don't use the celebrity as your role model. They are around the wrong people in their life who are giving them the wrong advice, and not looking after them in the way they deserve.
Rob Tencer is a PR expert and a sober companion, and has no tattoo's.
