    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.

    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.

    :rofl: 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.

    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.

    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)....

    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.
