Tattoos, are they worth it?
Who, What, Why?
Media Bias "Tattoos: Waste of money or artistic investment?"
In this article, the author/reporter uses bias through loaded language. Even though she has a tattoo, she makes several points that may deviate you from wanting to get a tattoo. She explains that most are a waste of time unless they have meaning to them, and even then they still may be a waste of time. She asks you to think about how they would look to our children and grandchildren in the next 10, 15, 20 years. Some may say that there is a story to tell behind them and some say that the tattoos will just be gross and wrinkly. That may be the case, but there is still a story to tell behind them.http://www.rainydaysaver.net/2010/09/tattoos-waste-money-artistic-investment.html
In other cultures, such as the Samoans, see tattoos as a tie to their cultural ancestry. The tattoos usually consist of the traditional geometric lines and angles of different shapes and sizes. Although, more modern tattoos can consist of shells, fish, birds, waves, and centipedes. There is also the kava bowl that symbolizes hospitality, or the Fale (samoan house) that symbolizes kinship.
