This is meant to be a joke, somewhat. It's a local commercial done by Rhett & Link on youtube. They have done a series of these "local commercials." If you had seen the rest, you would understand this one better.

Even I, and I hate tattoos and body piercing, have to admit that this is at least somewhat biased.

pretty sure the moral of the story is don't get impulse tattoos, make sure you want them. There will be repercussions, but every choice has repercussions.

I'm sure this is a little paranoid on my part but it seems I-A-B is becoming increasingly conservative as time goes on. The recent string of decidedly biased political posts, and now this...

Love my tattoo, love my piercings.
The job I'm looking into won't probably care what I have on my body anyway, as long as the work is done well.
The job I have now deals with customer service, and my boss hired me with my lip ring. She didn't say anything when I got my tattoo (on my wrist, so it's visible), or any other piercings I have.
I think once someone complained about my lip piercing. And that's because they lied, saying I was touching it, then handling their food (lie because if I touched it with my dirty hands, it would be infected).
I'm thinking of getting another one, but I want to wait until I'm 100% sure that I love it. It took me 2 years to make sure I wanted the first one I got.

DUbblecoMB: "If people will deny me a job simply because of my art, they can jump out a window"
you still have some growing up to do child..

i like tattoos, the only thing that stops me from getting one is the thought that it could come out ugly as funk. my sister-in-law has three horrifying tattoos, including one tramp stamp. my eyes burn each time i accidentally see them. i would really hate myself if a tattoo i made would come out as bad..

tattoos are art, but even the most talented painters/sculptors/musicians/etc. Know When to Stop! crazy body moders should too.

This is quite insulting, and plus thats probably not what the people in the vid actually think themselves. Makes no sense.

Plus i have numerous piercings and tattoos, and never made children cry. Sometimes they follow me around my work cos they re fascinated by me.

I currently have three tattoos; one on my left shoulder, one on my right, and a full left arm sleeve that I've been working on for the past few months, that's almost done. All together, I've spent 14 hours so far getting my work done, and all that pain has been in the name of art. Not to mention I want MORE. Tattoos are a means of expression when they're done right, and I will NEVER regret all the time, effort, and money I've put into mine. I spent months working with my artist to plan every tattoo carefully, and I'm sure of myself. If people will deny me a job simply because of my art, they can jump out a window.

boo! This would have made more sense if people with tattoos were not saying it, only because what they are saying is what other people say. It makes me feel like this spot is a joke, and they are just doing it for shock to get attention . . .attention for what you say? Their m'fing tattoo shop! I love my tattoos, and wouldn't give them up for anything . . . live your own life ppl!

I'm confused. Is this an ad where I'm supposed to be like, "HA! I'm totally getting one anyway! I hate social acceptance!"??? I have many tattoos and a normal job and children never cry at me unless I make them. You know what I mean. (joke)

Or how about just getting one where only you and a few people know you have it? Like the one on my back. Only the people who know I have it are those who have seen me with shirt off. So that means, the drunks at the party saw it, my girlfriend saw it, and I showed it to my buddies.
Those who don't know are my parents, children, etc.

i have a friend who has all kinds of tattoos on his hands and lower arms (and a crappy one on his neck) and he complains that he cant find a job.
i decided that all my ink is gonna be concealable by a t-shirt until i run out of room, by that time i should have some sort of career.

"Children will look at you and cry"

"Doesn't your body have enough holes"

Who wrote this?

"Doesn't your body have enough holes?" LOL

Also, times are changing. Maybe full body/facial tattoos are still not socially acceptable, but small visible tattoos and facial piercings are these days.

I think they should have added like a "think before you ink" slogan or something like that...

Dragonlord did you watch the whole video?

Cobrakiller I think they were going for a reverse psychology kind of satire.

Still not a great comercial though.

I don't think they're trying to reduce anything. If they were they'd be showing some really bad tattoos, no their own. Their own tattoos are a sort of advertising.
