I blame the Mum

www.kiwiblog.co.nz 

 The SST reports on how ” A Catholic school has expelled a pupil for getting a tattoo of an American rap musician on his arm – a $300 Christmas present from his social worker mum.”

Now while the school may be over-reacting, I have to say I blame the Mum. It’s common sense that gettng a tattoo which stretches from the wrist to the elbow might go down badly at a traditional school, and also who gives out tattoos as christmas presents to kids who are still at school?

Luke H:

I’m with the kid. This is just the latest in a string of things schools do on a regular basis to restrict the freedom of expression of children and teenagers. From piercings and hair colouring, now tattoos, schools want teens to conform. Considering state schools aren’t optional, the similarity between schools and prisons just keeps getting clearer and clearer.

 

 

SK:

However this isn’t a state school, it is a private catholic school. State schools do expect a reasonable standard but having a large tattoo at a school such as this is just asking for trouble.

 

 

Insolent Prick:

I didn’t realise the mother was a social worker.

That explains everything.

 

 

stan:

wtf insolent prick how does that explain everything? tattoes are cool and even if you don’t think they are people can do whatever the fuck they want. the only problem i see here is you’re not legally allowed to get them ’til you’re 18

 

 

Tats=unemployment:

Its a sign of the times,Ive seen kids as young as 9yrs old around here with ear piercings and earings, and young females with pierced belly buttons, “permissive society” its all leading to a very bad ending.
When i was at school if a yobbo got a tat theyd be expelled, and ive noticed that most all people with tats do not value education and end up in menial dead end labouring jobs and usually spend 1/2 their lives on the dole.

In the case above i blame the mother as well.

It really brasses me off to see all these teens now with those ugly tats all over them,it comes from those gang louts, makes them feel tough, i suggest that tattooed teens are feeble and weak minded.

 

 

Andrew Bannister:

and also who gives out tattoos as christmas presents to kids who are still at school?

Do you think it is worse to give a 17 year old kid a tattoo than a car? The reason I ask is that giving him a car would not have raised such a question. However, the potential consequences may be far worse.

Admittedly, getting a tattoo of a rapper (who in a few years time will probably be a “has been”) on a very visible part of your body is just f#@*ing stupid. Imagine walking around with a Spandau Ballet, Bananarama, Terence Trent D’Arby, Billy Idol or Falco tattoo.

Its a sign of the times,Ive seen kids as young as 9yrs old around here with ear piercings and earings

Are you serious. Myself and a bunch of my friends had our ears pierced at the age of 12, nearly 30 years ago.

and ive noticed that most all people with tats do not value education and end up in menial dead end labouring jobs and usually spend 1/2 their lives on the dole.

Oh dear.

 

 

err..:

Either that or they have shirt sleeves…

 

 

side show bob:

Good on the school, I would have assumed the school had a clear set of rules on paper. Prehaps this social worker of a mother never thought for one moment to check. I wonder why her darling son goes to a private school surly an employee of the state would be more then happy to send their child to a state school. Could it be that a greater degree of discipline can be had at a private school thus the setting of a higher standed. If her son wishes to turn himself into walking wallpaper fair enough but this child should not be aloud to set a standard that others at the school may want to follow.

 

 

battler:

“… people can do whatever the fuck they want. “
Exactly stan, which is why the school expelled the student who chose not to operate to the standards of the school which they would have agreed to upon enrolling.

 

 

sally:

I love the new name for tattoo’s – “tramp stamps”.

I understand that medical and beautician clinics that offer laser tattoo removal services ar run off their feet as Generation XYers realise that their tribal armband tattoo or ‘deeply spiritual’ Mandarin script on the lower back which actually reads “stupid white whore” might have looked edgy and angsty 15 years ago, now looks cliched and about as hardcore as a Girl Guide biscuit.

I can’t wait for ageing to kick in and in twenty years time we will be witness to the tragic sight of lots of floppy, liver spotted, wrinkly skin with the tatt’s falling into the crevices and looking about as sharp and defined as toddler felt-tip doodlings. The ever popular rose or butterfly tattoo so favoured by many women , will end up with the rose looking like it needs dead-heading and the butterfly will have morphed into a comatose moth. Mind you, when viagara seeking men will be visitng their GPs, the Tribal armband tattoo’s will be great markers as to where to put the blood pressure cuff!

I understand the boy in question has got a tattoo of long dead rapper Tupac – well I just about pissed myself laughing because Sacha Baron Cohen’s character ‘Ali G’ also has Tupac as his role model. If my kid came to me and told me that a obese,violent gun-toting, dead black ghetto rapper was their No1 role model, I would wonder where I went wrong.

I see the excuse for the tattoo was because mummy and daddy had split up. Well it sounds like to me mummy was trying to be the acid cool permissive parent smothering her guilt by allowing her son to do exactly what he wants because otherwise he would just go off and play up to daddy to get his tragic Tupac tatt instead. No doubt daddy will counter-offer with a Porsche.

 

 

Flashman:

The only three things that make sense in this episode are:

1. The mother is a social worker.

2. Bodily graffiti is so passe and cliched.

3. The school is exercising its rights – and rightly so.

 

 

fraser:

“and ive noticed that most all people with tats do not value education and end up in menial dead end labouring jobs and usually spend 1/2 their lives on the dole.”

oh please – perhaps you cant see the tattoed people with good jobs due to them being at work.

Being quite heavily tattooed (and very gainfully employed in a higly rewarding carrer) im all in favour of them, but i do question why someone would encourage a teenager to get their first tattoo in such a prominent place. That sort of thing is best left till your a bit older and wiser.

also – and correct me if im wrong here – but “tramp stamp” refers to the tattoos that girls get at the base of their spine, not tattoos in general

 

 

george:

I have lived and worked most of my life with seafarers. As a group they would be among the most heavily tatted [apart from the prison population]. I thought I had seen every dumb variation of decoration there was.

However, a 17 year-old with a dead rappers name would take the biscuit. ‘Mother’ needs her arse kicked.

It should be replaced with a WINZ barcode.

 

 

gd:

Mum is most likely representative of the mentality of social workers in this enlightened ‘cough’ times.

 

 

sally:

fraser – I consulted my people over the “tramp stamps” moniker and they have got back to me and confirmed that you are correct in your placement and definition.

But for “tramp stamps” to have evolved out of the tattoo trend in the first place shows a high correlation between tattoo’s and women who upon sight are straight-up slappers.

Notice how over-inked lots of pale, skinny white boys are, nothing like a tatt’ to scream “I am tough and edgy”. Well, at least their mum’s think they are

 

 

Bearhunter:

And in the Northern Hemisphere tramp stamps are referred to as slag tags. Just thought I’d share that.

 

 

James:

Full length arm tattoos on people say to me “HIV positive drug user….avoid!”

 

 

ChickenLittle:

sally –

“If my kid came to me and told me that a obese,violent gun-toting, dead black ghetto rapper was their No1 role model”

Tupac was the skinny,violent gun-toting, dead black ghetto rapper.

The obese one was Biggy Smalls who was killed in retaliation for Tupacs death.

There is a great book,the title of which evades me, written about the rap war that preceded and followed these two murders.

 

 

Brian Barns:

Tattoos say a few things to me, “unruly,uneducated,ex inmate,vandal,drug addict,thief.

And woman with tattoo, all the above and add tramp to the list as well.

Leave tattoos to Sailors, maoris, pacific islanders, inmates, and Jewish holocaust POW victims.

Tattoos are not art, they are body desecration.

 

 

fraser:

“Tattoos say a few things to me, “unruly,uneducated,ex inmate,vandal,drug addict,thief.” – “Tattoos are not art, they are body desecration.”

perhaps you should get some education into they truly incredible artworks that tattoist are creating then. Its been many a year since tattos were only the domain of sailors and criminals. Even policemen have them these days.

like most worn out cliches, they tend to fall over when examining the facts

 

 

sally:

ChickenLittle – Ah my bad. So confusing all dem rappers, I can’t keep up with who is dead, alive, feuding or sharing record labels, bling jewellers and ho’s.

And sharing tattoists of course…

 

 

mara:

Ahh yes…you can reliably get away with allowing a kid to get tattooed,feed it to the point of morbid obesity and let its mind rot in a totally clapped-out household but God forbid you should smack it. Errr?

 

 

Andrew Bannister:

Mara, that is some twisted logic you’re using there.

    Really, when has it become everyone’s business to concern themselves with the private matters of people? You haven’t met with them personally or talked with them, so stop blaming them for something that they don’t want the public to care about.
