do you know how much it hurts when someone starts treating the very personal, spiritual path you’ve walked and struggled with and felt harmony with even when everyone around you tells you you’re wrong for it your whole life, for as long as you can remember, like it’s some kind of fad? A trendy, popular fashion? It fucking hurts.

I want to get a tattoo on my thumb. I want it to be my zodiac sign. I’m a libra. I’ve wanted this tattoo for as long as I can remember. I’ve always felt very close to my zodiac sign and I think getting it tattooed on my thumb would look awesome.
I was turned away from getting that tattoo this evening. I understand tattoo artists have every right to turn away a tattoo if they want. I completely understand that. But… to be as rude and judgmental and appallingly… bitchy, for lack of anything better to call it. I have never been treated so rudely or condescendingly by anyone in a shop, a shop of any kind, in my life.
To automatically act like I’m some kind of burden, like I’m a pest that needs to go away, when I’m the only one in the shop? To not even look at me when I’m trying to talk to you, to have you over talk me and demand to know my age and what I do for a living, and then tell me that I won’t be able to get any jobs if I get a tattoo on my hand in the rudest voice possible? To treat me like I walked in wanting to get ‘FUCK’ tattooed across my forehead? To act like I’m an idiot? It was completely unnecessary. A simple “I’m sorry, but I’m going to have to say no to doing this tattoo. I’m sorry.” would have been whatever. I mean, it would have been a little upsetting, but to it wouldn’t have been acting like I’m scum that needs to leave your shop immediately.
And then to tell me that since I have no visible tattoos that a hand tattoo wouldn’t work out for me? As I was leaving the shop already shaken by the incredibly rude treatment, one of the other artists said ‘Don’t take it as an insult sweetheart, it’s just good advice.” He sounded slightly apologetic. She said back to him “She’s only 20, she doesn’t know what she wants.”
I’m incredibly surprised by this, especially since I’ve had piercings done at that shop and been treated with wonderful respect and kindness. This rudeness was so shocking I couldn’t even believe it. I just walked out. And I will probably never be back, I will never be able to shake that hurtful, rude treatment. I don’t know when I will be getting my first tattoo, but I’m kind of put off of it for now.
I’m so disappointed.

It’s heartbreaking when you realize that friends you’ve had for years, who you’ve been with through all kinds of horrible crap and stood by them and gotten through it with them, friends you would do anything for and have done everything for….. it’s so heartbreaking when you realize that they’ve turned you into a “back-up” friend. Someone that they only hang out with when their new friends are busy. Someone they will leave at the store because their new friends wanted to go out to eat with them. Someone who they make plans with and then their new friends make plans with them and they cancel plans with you in favor of the new friends.
And it hurts even more when you finally can’t stand it any longer because it’s been going on for months and you tell them how you feel, and they deny it and lie to you and treat you like you’re being too ‘sensitive’.
This was my weekend.
