PostSubject: Columbine related Tattoos   Sun Feb 02, 2014 5:48 pm

Hi everyone !

I've searched if a topic on Columbine related tattoos was already created and I could not find anything (I might be wrong, I'm not sure)

Anyway, I've been browsing tumblrs these days (maybe I should not have...) and I found rather disturbing pictures of Columbine related tattoos gotten by fan girls.

I think this was a Dylan's journal entry










I don't know about you but assuming that most of these girls are teenagers or young adults, I think it's sad that they are going to keep such tattoos for the rest of their lives. It reminds me a little of Manson's girls that got tattooed a swastiska on their foreheads as a sign of support. What do you think ?

They probably will regret that decision in some years.
Buuuut....that half-heart is not that bad as a motive. And I say that as someone, who doesn't like Tattoos at all, especially on girls.

I don't really like the half-heart, it was mainly a doodle I guess (and I think Dylan was not very good at drawing), although I must agree that it's the most acceptable. My main concern is :

1) How can parents of these girls let them get such tattoos. I mean, I'm in my mid-twenties and my mom would still probably smash my head if I wanted to get or actually got a tattoo referring to a killer.

2) A responsible tattoo artist would try to convince the person not to get such tattoo or would refuse to tattoo such motive (some tattoos artists refuse to perform for less than that, i.e. barcode tattoos etc.)

I am wondering how they will deal in 20 years from now when they will explain why they got it, or for a job application for instance...

I think the tattoo artist doesn't necessarily have to be aware of what these things mean, as well as the parents. Who in the "normal world" sees a broken heart and thinks "Oh, that looks like it could be from a school shooters diary!" ? ;)

I bet that many of these girls are gonna be so regret in 20 years. I like tattoos I even have one but you cant transform everything you want to a tattoo because it means that you will have something on your skin probably all your life and it can effect many things like find a job, even the place where you want it have to be carefully chosen specially if it is something like these ones about school shooters. I understand that when someone is young, anything can mean a lot for the immaturity of the person but then they will be so regret because have a tattoo implicate a lot of things and is something you have to think very well before do it. Maybe the people with those tattoos are young adults and their parents don't even know what it means but if they know, these people should be embarrassing because it can offend other people and also relatives

Ok, the half-hearts and "Beautiful" aren't that bad, but "Dylan Klebold"? Really? I know I'd find it creepy if someone I met had a tattoo with Adam Lanza's or some other mass murderer's name. Well, I guess, at least they didn't tattoo their portraits... That would make for some ugly tattoos lol (not implying that E&D were ugly, it's just that I never saw a nice portrait tattoo)

I would not be surprised if a fan girl actually does (if it's not the case already, these are just a few examples found on tumblr, who knows...)  ;)

Holy s..., Dylan's signature and hearts as tattoos? I didn't think it was even possible. The more I see, the crazier it gets.

Tattoo artists don't care what they tattoo, even if they disagree with it most will still do it.

Unsurprisingly, Dylan's writings seem more popular for tattoos. I'd like to see someone with a tattoo that uses some of Eric's beautiful and lyrical poetry  Suspect  such as ''Move it or Lose it'' or ''If it moves, kill it, if it doesn't burn it''. Or still, a Jo Mamma joke with a ''Reb'' signature. Oh, people...

I just don't get this, at all. My gawd, these fangirls are stupid. The "Dylan Klebold signature" tattoo is probably the funniest... oh well, have fun trying to remove these in the next few years!  ;)

There is room for doubt  Laughing ! I don't know where you found that but this is probably the worst I've ever seen !

Anyway, I think too that Dylan's writings attract more, probably because he is considered to be much more "romantic" than Eric (I can hardly imagine a fan girl getting a "KILL MANKIND" tattoo or a "YOU KNOW WHAT I HATE ?!" one).

You'd be surprised.

Weren't Dyl's hearts modelled after the hearts from the Smashing Pumpkins? The design looks similar enough..

That said, I really cannot fathom the urge to get a tattoo like these. It is something permanent that you are not going to be able to explain away forever. It is the folly of youth to me that almost borders on disrespect -- it would feel very different to me if someone who knew the boys got an unobtrusive memorial tattoo, whereas this fangirl thing feels like it diminishes and trivialises the trauma and the hurt suffered on all fronts involved in the case.

Oh, c'mon. You know you want to. ;) Dylan's TB's are bizarre, whimsical little Rorschach ink blot Humanity Tests. People would go 'what the heck is that on your arm?' Great convo starters. Make 'em ponder.

Oh, indeed. More like they'd be inclined to get something along the lines of "Natural Selection" when attempting to "honor" Eric. What a gargantuan majority of them fail to realize is that Eric didn't remotely comprehend what the concept of the natural selection process actually is, hence, neither do they.

How exquisitely put, thedragonrampant. A lot of these "gestures" are utterly disrespectful, and they do absolutely trivialize the pain these two kids carried within themselves, and then selfishly created for so many others with their final actions.

I have no doubt in my mind, within 10 years that Dylan Klebold signature will be covered up with something else.

Imagine explaining that one to the kids!

It's clear that you can't really explain these tattoos... People would definitely judge you, and it would be even worst if they know the meaning. Actually, the beautiful and the hearts could be ok, as you need to know where they come from and I don't think alot of people do. Well, except if you go to CHS and say 'hey! Look at my new tattoo!'

Anyway, I got a friend who's born april 20 1999 and she tattoed it, without obviously knowing anything about CHS so I guess it's kinda ok...

I have a feeling most of these will be covered up.... The hearts and beautiful unless you really know what it's for (99.9% of ppl will not know) are fine.

If I had anything Columbine related tattooed on me it would either be one of Dylan's hearts or "To love is to enter a completion of oneself" and have it attributed to "D.B.K.". I have the whole "Love is more valuable than anything I know. To love is to enter a completion of oneself." on the Quotes section of my Facebook profile, with his full name and dates attributed, and nobody has ever said anything about it.

I don't see why the hearts, "Beautiful," or crosses are cringeworthy. The way I see it, Eric and Dylan DID write/say things besides killing people - some of which may have had a profound impact on those who read them. For example, reading Dylan's journal and seeing the way he talked about love made me realize "Hey, if someone this sick who did something this deranged has an understanding of love, why shouldn't we?" It made me realize that even he had good in him. Thanks to Dylan's writing, I have a new outlook on life and am not as judgmental, hateful, or vengeful as I was before. If I get a tattoo, it well may be his quote about love being more valuable than anything he knew and a completion of oneself. Those two sentences turned my life around.

I was cringing at the full letter on leg, and the shooters with bullet holes.
