Hey dumb shower thought but is the whole mainstream anti-tattoo sentiment steeped in white supremacy or like where did that come from? I get that it's been less so in recent years but still in the more corporate worlds its like you gotta cover it up and all

@sireffe its probably left over from the days where tattoos were used to mark criminals, intersected with the hatred/ fear of scawwy indigenous folk with their inked skin

@sireffe I always thought it was just the usual valuing-conformity-over-self-expression capitalism thing. But..... I'm sure there's a lot of white supremacy stuff in there that I just never noticed. It would be surprising if it wasn't in some way rooted in white supremacy tbh
