The history of American Tattoos: 1) Poor greasers and sailors and bikers and gang-bangers get tattoos. 2) “Edgy” fad spreads to various musical subcultures, mostly rockabilly and punk. 3) 1990s grunge era seduces even elitist college kids into getting inked. 4) Trickle-down tattoo economics means every single white-trash person now has several ugly tattoos on their fat legs (for gals) and necks (for the gents). 5) Every low-rent strip mall has a tattoo shop next to the payday loan place. 6) Arkansas tattoo parlor proudly aligns with right-wing jesus-freak racists.
