I like tattoos.Â I have a couple myself and wouldnâ€™t mind one more, if I were allowed.Â And I find them to be fascinating body modifications on others in most circumstances.Â But honest to God, I came across very few tattoos on this site that I was able think, â€œWow, thatâ€™s cool/beautiful/transgressive/sexy.â€Â They were all grotesque.Â (I did like this one. [SFW, if weird])
So in our neverending discussion of â€œWhat is art?â€, Iâ€™d like to ask in the immortal acronym embodied above, â€œWTF?â€Â How are we to fit these manifestations of our creative imperative into the schema of that imperative?Â (I’ve tagged this with the Corroborative Evidence category; is that where we are with this?)C4090-455
Oh my.Â This is the greatest piece of corroborative evidence I have come across this year.
We couldn’t really consign this to the flames, but it is nonetheless a powerful reminder of the just nature of our creed.
