Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Since I moved to the U.S, I realized that today's parents doesn't seem to care if their kid wants a tattoo or not. At first I thought it had something to do with the U.S culture. Now days, people want to get a tattoo because it simply looks cool, when back at my original country, if you had a tattoo, it meant that you are some kind of criminal. Not only getting a tattoo can be a cultural thing, but it is also trending in our generation. Just recently, we have seen many people, among them celebrities to put some kind of art in their bodies. Tattoos are not considered part of a bad stereotype in the U.S or U.K, yet I am the type of young lady that would not get a tattoo unless something meaningful happens to me, because it is something that has changed me, and it will only be one. Having a tattoo might look good, but either you get or not get a tattoo you must remember that it will stay in your body for a long time, or not if you have the money to remove it. So in other words think twice before  you put a tattoo on, and if you are not sure about it just don't do it. Never do it under the pressure of your friends. Love your body and love yourself. In my opinion, I feel like there is no need to put a tattoo on, I love my body just this way. I know I said that I might put on if something important happens to me, but to be honest I do not think that I will end up putting some kind of ink in my body.
