Thumbs Down

Both have good points, but both are starting to land below the belt.

I think, even if one disagrees with tattoos, which I largely do myself, we have to differentiate between different kinds and amount of tattoos, as well as the motivation behind them, to be honest.
I don’t think it’s a simple matter of black and white in this case(is it ever?).

A a few hypothetical cases:

If someone gets...
  • A tattoo with the names of his/her lifetime partner or children in it, it’s probably simply an expression of love. Although it’s a bit cliché.

  • A crude Swastika tramp stamp or a KZ(no joke, happened in Germany), it’s probably mostly an expression of stupidity and a sign, that the actual political conviction can’t be that great.

  • A military tattoo, when he actually served, it’s a sign of comradeship.

  • A tattoo merely saying “peace” or something similar, especially with some Chinese/Japanese/Arabic characters, usually even incorrectly done, it’s probably a sign of shallowness and a deficient intelligence quotient.

  • A, well done and thought out, Pagan/Christian symbol, it’s probably a sign of devotion to his/her believes.

  • A tattoo, of any kind, covering large parts of the body, and especially the face or neck, it’s probably a sign of extreme attention seeking, insecurity and stupidity.

As we can see, there are gradations and even if we find it generally unaesthetic, one has to admit, that some tattoo executions and amounts are less bad than others and some motivations aren’t bad at all.
And I personally have enough faith in (current) Skadites, that they won’t have any of the wrong ones.

This is interesting. Some of my comrades' and associates' wives have three, four or five sweet well-behaved children with good Germanic forenames and some of them have select, hidden, meaningful tattoos whilst still looking like good, normal Germanic women devoid of all the typical degeneration.

The fact your ideal vision of an 'untainted motherly figure' hasn't arrived whilst I know several examples of Germanic mothers of multiple children who do have tattoos without being absolute degenerates IMHO highlights you have an unrealistic expectation of reality.

At any rate, I'll dare you to tell their husbands that the mother of their children is a degenerate because they have small, hidden and meaningful tattoos. If that's the way you're going about life, good luck in getting acceptance from your fellow preservationist.

If we're going to exclude everyone with tattoos, dyed hair, listening to music other than March music, beards, for smoking or drinking in moderation (these two habits being things that those engaging therein should be encouraged to break but not forcibly so), for watching mainstream TV shows every odd week, for wearing make-up, for drinking from plastic bottles or any of the aforementioned likes from our ranks altogether --- we might just as well mass-suicide and hope we end up on some space-ship.

Let's judge a person by their merit as a whole (i.e. naturally if they engage in every degeneracy, they have no place - but let's not exclude people because they're not our ideal people shaped from clay or sth), not by some lifestyle choice we believe is detrimental. We're hardly in the position as a people to decide we're going to oust someone from our ranks because we don't like the shirt they wear.

So is wearing ear-rings or dyeing your hair. We've been through this before on this board, haven't we? What was it again, concentration camps for people who dye their hair?
