Tattoo-unemployed link a generalisation
P Bradshaw’s letter, Expensive tattoos on the unemployed (3/4) is a tad harsh.
There is really no need to generalise and many would feel it is offensive to state that people have “artwork” to avoid employment. However, it could be argued tattoos are no longer rebellious because they are ubiquitous and, ironically the real rebels are the non-pierced, non-inked fraternity, because there are so few of us left. As Evelyn Beatrice Hall said of Voltaire: “I disapprove of what you say, but I defend to the death your right to say it.”
