Tattoos that is.

Pharrell offers up his experience with his tattoos on Myspace

Covering the gamut of fashion and style, we cannot forget to cover the permanent, irreversible, sometimes regrettable fashion. TATTOOS! I’ve always thought tattoos should be something a little bit personal. Meaning, if you’re going to get a tattoo, get it for you and don’t get it for anyone else. Its hard to find that compromise when you’re trying to find something meaningful to ink on your body and, at the same time, a little bit too eager to show it off. I’ve never understood the people who say they got tattoos just because it looked good. It seems a little bit brash and reckless, but that’s their prerogative. And now you’re hearing Pharrell saying that he was following the lead of Fred Durst? And he admits he still wasn’t a real rockstar after he got the tattoos? And he’s gonna get his tattoos removed for more tattoos? Here’s my point: if the body is the temple, and you decide to tag up the temple, wouldn’t you tag it up with dopest mural, art, symbolism, etc., that you would be proud to look at for a lifetime? You’re not supposed deface the temple with some BS you thought was cool at the moment only to get it removed for summore BS. “In this game, there’s no room for double talk.”

On the other hand, he did say it was worth it and that it gives you confidence, like new sneakers, jewelry, or perhaps new boobies.

    It’s rather reckless to be removing tattoos to get new ones…sounds like the whole permanency of tattoos is something he doesn’t believe in. If he keeps at it it’ll be a grey smudge! But I guess he can do it if he wants. It’s true what you said, I think all tattoos should have a deep meaning, not just something you decided on the spot!
