To say the whole fucking word? TATTOO. God, I hate it when people say tat...anyone with me on this?
AMEN!!!!!! thats one of my biggest pet peeves. that and when people say "im gonna gauge my ears". i hate both of those.
I'm glad someone is in with me on this. It irritates me deeply.
it irritates quite a few tattoo artists too. if people come in my shop and ask for a tat i just say 'tat?? tats?? what are those? we do tattoos but i've never heard of a tat'
it pisses them off so much.
u gonna guage those ears more? I hella want one of those spider tribal tats, fucking sick shit
Yeah, and after I get my cool tribal Imma go get me a butterfly tat on my lower back.
Wow, BulletPlusOne and Almighty Buttons are having quite a rant in here.
Ehh, I'll join too...
Yeah, WTF? "Tat" sounds so white trash. Also, there was an article in Maxim (or Stuff, I forget) about the whole girlie tattoo on the lower back thing. They nicknamed it the Santa Cruz License Plate. I'd never heard it called that. It's so great though when you tell a girl that's what it's called and she asks "Why?" BURN!
Is that any better/worse than someone saying that they are going to "get some ink" done.
That's bad too. "Lemme see your ink, dude!"
I hear that so much. "Whoa...nice ink!" I appreciate the compliment..but that "ink" was shoved in repeatedly with a needle, not drawn on with a ball point pen.
That's the first thing my boss said when he saw my first tattoo.
People say that to me too. How lame.
I get the ink thing a lot. Most people that talk to me about them say tattoos. I think "tat" or"tats" may be a trendy thing??
When I say it, I usually say tattoo. It just sounds wrong to sat tat. But when I type, it's tat. Just guess I'm too lazy to type 3 extra letters.
Think of all the excercise you'd be getting by typing those extra letters though!!! Do eeettt for the good of all humanity!
I do the same thing... I would never SAY the word tat, but I've been guilty of typing it a time or two I'm sure. But then, there's LOTS of things we shorten when we type... "tattoo" isn't the only word that's fallen victim to laziness.
With regard to the "gauge" thing, however, I agree.... A guy I work with will randomly state, "I'm gonna guage up this weekend." When I'd ask him to clarify, he'd get annoyed. Well gee, I work in steel (as in construction products) so I hear the term "gauge" all day long... how the hell was I supposed to know you meant your ears? (and since he 'gauged up' several times over the space of a couple months, we had this exchange frequently).
With regard to the term "ink" however, that seems to be growing in popularity, and you're just gonna have to deal with hearing it. It's not going away (I can't tell you how many of those "Got Ink?" stickers I've seen on cars)....
Bump for n00bs.
I'm not sure the bump was needed.... or should i say nee
or guns aiming downward
Whats wrong with saying "gauge my ears" or whathaveyou
Maybe I'm the only one...but I don't get it. Is there some hidden meaning or local inside joke about Santa Cruz...I just don't get it.
I also can't stand the gauge issue. You don't gauge your piercings, you go up or down a gauge with them. If you say "I'm going to gauge my ears", the first thought that comes to my mind is that you mean you're going to check the measurement to see what gauge your ears are. It also just sounds a bit retarded to me in general to say it that way...especially since then you're going to get questions regarding what size you're at, what you're going to, etc. Why not just say, "I'm going to go up to a 10g tonight/whenever. Right now I'm at a 14g." or "I want to go up to a 6g"...not "I want to gauge my lobes."
Maybe that's just the "cool" thing to say now...how do I know.
I kinda feel like this is the "It's not a Porshe, and a Porshe-a", "It's not a Beamer, it's a Bimmer" type thing.
Kinda sounds pretencious.
I dont mind ink, but I am not a fan of tats.
I hate it when peope say tongue ring. It's not a ring! It's a bar!!
But tongue ring has a much better flow!
