Yes, there might be some emotional connections but mostly it’s ATTENTION!!! When one tattoo doesn’t get their attention then one on one’s face surely will do ….right? Many push the envelope not only because it feels good for the moment but hope it will get them the ATTENTION they so desire! Once society accepts the previous “form” they must find a new one which will GRAB THE HEADLINES until of course it is accepted as well. In a sense if we didn’t force the world not only to tolerate it but “accept it” then marrying a pillow (above) wouldn’t be our next wedding invitation. Don’t worry I’m not going although pillows sure make life long friends.
FOOTNOTE- While looking up a picture for this blog piece “Marrying an Object” there were things even I didn’t believe I would see or in other words the envelope is in Fed Ex hands.
