tristangrace Posted July 16, 2012 Share Posted July 16, 2012 So, I took my 5yo to lunch in a hipster neighborhood today. It was super hot, so lots of folks were in tank tops and sundresses. My daughter was very impressed with how crowded the restaurant was, and chattered for quite some time about it. But, as you know from the title of the thread, the money quote was when she enthused, "It's, like, a city of tattooed people here!" Got a belly laugh from me. I, for one, have always had a soft spot for counter-culture, and when I moved to Chicago in 1992, tattoos were kind of cool and intriguing to me. Twenty years later, when--as observed by my daughter--it's not uncommon to find yourself in spots where easily one in three people are inked up, they just tend to blend into a sea of mainstream "meh." I feel kind of silly saying this, but I miss the old days! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
