When did it become okay to tell someone you don’t like how they look?

NEVER.

It never became okay!

I’ve noticed a recent increase in people commenting on how I look and giving me their quite frankly unwanted opinions on my personal decisions.

So let me clear this up: this is for all the unwanted hair-touchers, prodders and outspoken opinion makers who I’m sure we have all encountered, and maybe if you realise you have done this you can see how rude and inappropriate you have been.

Respect is the biggest lesson to be learnt here.

Here’s 5 things all arseholes don’t realise:

  • Touching a strangers hair is inappropriate & unwelcome attention.

I cannot really find anyway to make touching a strangers hair an appropriate way to greet someone, so first of all please don’t  do it on a whim because you don’t understand it, and second of all please just don’t ask to do it. Go home and Google it or something. Most people are happy to answer any questions you have, but please don’t interrupt my private conversations. The amount of times I’ve been interrupted by a random hair toucher is unreal! I would NEVER interrupt someone to ask a dumb question so STOP IT NOW!

  • Just because I look different doesn’t  mean I want to talk to you about it

You cannot comprehend how many times I have been asked ‘What do your tattoos mean?’

I don’t ask what your hairdo means or your clothes, really please just leave me alone.

To me it’s mainly decoration, and any that I have that do mean something, what do I owe to you to tell you?

It’s not a strangers business so back the fuck up.

  • People with tattoos think its a way to relate to me:

Okay, so you have tattoos, I have tattoos, that’s great, I still don’t want to talk about mine, so please stand here and tell me for hours about how and when and where you got yours and I can try slowly slither away out of earshot. Holy Christ. I don’t wanna talk about it.

(This one is probably the bane of my life.)

  • You don’t like my hair/tattoos/piercings/image/style and feel an unbearable need to let me know:

I don’t judge you or comment on your life, so please keep your thoughts to yourself. I have a partner and I am very happy and content. I don’t need your approval and I am very aware of my life choices. It doesn’t bother me if you don’t like something about me, but I would certainly never feel the need to tell anyone friend or stranger something about their image that I personally didn’t like. Keep it to yourself! How rude of you! Live and let live!

  • You need to let me know that I’m probably going to regret that:

Oh yeah, so I never realised until you mentioned that it’s permanent.

Yeah I’ll totes regret it.

I hate your face!

(jokes)

So, what I’m trying to say is that I don’t understand why people think its okay to comment, is it because they think I want the attention? I genuinely think that some people assume that if you have tattoos and piercings and ‘mad’ hair you are doing it for attention, well you are very wrong.

I along with most other people who are seen as alternative are just being who we are.

I understand why people ask about these things but most of the time I get asked in a very rude manner. I worded this post in a jokey manner to try keep it fun. I am never rude to people who do ask me about things, but I would live a simpler life without this hassle as I’m sure a lot of people would too.

I choose to live my life this way and I like to decorate my body, I would never dream of asking someone why they don’t have body modifications so please give us a break and realise that we don’t all live our lives  in the same way!

* as a back note I’d like to say that I understand genuine human curiosity and that I can respect that and I can tell the people who are genuinely curious from the invasive rude people! Most of you are just lovely, it’s just a small percentage that lets us down.

Happy Friday, Cherry bombs!

It’s Valentines Day apparently, when we are forced upon the idea that we should all be in happy couples living together and giving each other copious amounts of junk to prove how much we love each other and to show other people how happy we could be are. But I actually think it is maybe just a nice time to remind yourself that you should give yourself some love. Maybe give some other folk some love afterwards too. I don’t think it’s about selling out or buying a girl or guy flowers or material crap to win their love, (although if you have done so already, I’ll take ’em)

No, instead of all that rubbish, I’m loving myself today by going to get a sweet new tattoo from my mate Annmarie Shand at The Ink Pad, in Saltcoats :

Plus I’m working all weekend so I’m just gonna have a great time dancing away to live music and having a laugh with all the punters 🙂

Annmarie’s an excellent artist and has done lots of work on me in the past year.

She did this piece on my arm, way back in December:

And more recently she did the neck piece ( the rose) that you can see in the first photo. She’s brilliant and I’d really recommend her, and although she has only been tattooing for a year, I love everything that she has done. She’s also great banter and you can’t beat a wee seaside train trip to Saltcoats! Patrick, who owns the shop is a brilliant artist too,so I would definitely check out both of their work if you are thinking of getting some ink work done!

The shop is literally only 3 minutes walk from Saltcoats train station and you need to book an appointment first.

I will post photos very soon of what I’m getting done today!

Remember to do whatever makes you happy today (and everyday) and don’t judge others for doing what makes them happy and gonna just go and share a wee smile and a dance with some folk tonight please?! That shit’s infectious!

Spread that love!

This day IS about love but not just in a couple/ soul mate sense, this is about loving yourself, your parents, your pals, your pets, strangers even.

Love yourself pal, you’re gorgeous and unique and don’t need someone else to buy you something to realise that. Just listen in to what people say to you, they’re probably telling you a lot of the time. 🙂

Much love to you and yours and thanks for taking the time out to read! Love Morvs x
