Why do people spend so many thousands of dollars just to permanently larp as a sailor 60+ years ago?

None of these designs are original or unique, its literally just a permanent costume of shit sailors used to get tattooed in the old days, but on steroids.

Unoriginal vintage larping has gone too far.

People with low IQ usually filter themselves out with low IQ hobbies such as drinking (to the point of alcoholism), smoking, riding motorcycles, and voting 3rd party.
Tattoos are no different.

Got no issue with people who tattoo cool shit and don't just copy paste from old sailors photo's and sleeve up everything with moms credit card.
This is the tattoo equivalent of SUPREME'd up hypebeast teens, sure enough they are free to do what they want with money, but that doesn't make it less lame.
Hence the genuine question, what is the appeal?

Its not about having to invent something new.
I just think its odd that people completely copy paste something from a different era and then tattoo it permanently on themselves with no connection to that culture or time, and its not like he found some cool item from a different period, its the full body work copied.
If someone started dressing as an early 20th century sailor or larping some other specific old subculture every day they would be looked at as the goof they are, yet when they copy the entire full body tattoo design its fine, i guess tats are still new enough to normies that they have some special aura about them.

the whole style is called "traditional" you stupid faggot. maybe if you had a father instead of hatching from an egg you could understand the appeal of getting the same style your lineage had for centuries.

your anime-diseased mind might not like the tropes and symbols in traditional tattoo art, but they've been around forever because all sorts of people agreed on their symbolic power. you don't get a tattoo of a cat and say "this represents good fortune". you get the good fortune symbols and everyone in the know understands it. this isn't hard to understand and you certainly shouldn't be so upset you are making threads about it.

Dont know. Because they feel empty on th einside. That they think covering their whollw body in tatoos would make them seem like they are someone. When it just makes them.... nothing. Covering in tatoos, piercings.. Its all just these people coping. And in many cases, they dont even know over WHAT they are coping over.

I like tattoos because I find them pretty. I buy them the same way I buy beautiful clothing, because it pleases me.

>I like tattoos because I find them pretty.
Thats fair, but the question isnt about tats in general, it was pretty specific.
And at the same time, would you glue a cool set of clothing on yourself, specifically an entire vintage larp outfit.

None of those tattoos are ‘sailor tattoos’. I don’t see a single ship, wheel, anchor or bald eagle.

having this many tattoos shows the symptom of the current age, the age of peter pan syndrome.
Being old isn't respected anymore, people hate boomers, the world is a hellscape no one wants to grow old into, dating world is complete hell where no one wants to settle down, people chugging drugs as if they wont last until 40.

These old sailors did the exact same thing, it's called tradition anon, people have been copying eachother since time began.

People also take clothes from the past and wear them and they become popular again, where i live people wear flat caps what are similar in ways to what people wore in the 20's and 30's.

Yes, that was a very specific closed subculture, not some preppy boy who decides one day to get an entire full body suit of copy paste.
>>16747687
Notice that the post is about the overdone factor and not that no one is allowed to do something that has been done before.
Not sure how wearing a flat cap is comparable, maybe if a person wore an entire outfit from the 20s or 30s every day it would be comparable.
>>
>>16747689
sailors were their own thing, cursing and tattooing yourself was an inculcated venture, people didn't like seeing it outside of confined areas.

Does it matter? and suits haven't changed that much really apart from in the cut and material.

If someone wants to dress like people in the past because they like how it looks and they can relate to it, then why shouldn't they if it makes them happy.

This is meant to be a fashion board but i have met some of the most close minded people on here ever afraid to stand out and trying desperately to fit in, that aint what fashion is about.

Yes, its literally the equivalent of fedorafags who think they are distinguished gentlemen because they wear a suit and fedora everyday and have a moustache.
Difference is that is rightfully seen as cringe yet you guys are in here defending this to the death, i guess tattoos are new enough to the mainstream that they still have some years left of mystique.

>>16747699
>sailors were their own thing, cursing and tattooing yourself was an inculcated venture, people didn't like seeing it outside of confined areas
sailors were not the only ones with tattoos, you are deluded if you think otherwise, tattooing as been a thing since the dawn of man.

The super conservative and puritanical society you people want did not actually really exist in reality, you have a warped view of the past what didn't actually happen among ordinary people. People were casually fucking drinking and doing other kinds of debauchery even in the past, it just wasn't as open as now.
>>
>>16747685
That’s not the same guy? Moving goal posts now huh?
>>
>>16747706
If the guy likes dressing like that, then what the fuck has it got to do with you? no one is forcing you to dress like that, that guy probably has more knowledge on fashion than you do too, it takes a lot of research to get vintage styles like that right, and it takes a lot of confidence to stick out like that these days when t shirt and jeans are the norm.
>>
>it's another 'old thing bad' episode
these kids probably aren't even trying to be vintage, you're just making shit up to be mad about.
>>
>>16747704
>that aint what fashion is about.
mindlessly larping the past isn't either.

no one here says you cant have a tattoo that was used in the past, the point is that its literally copy pasting the entire suit of a 100 year old subculture.

How dare people wear what their ancestors wore and carry on tradition right? even though people in other cultures do exactly that and have been doing it for hundreds of years.

no, i was pretty specific about copy pasting an entire body suit of tattoos from a distinct 80+ year old subculture you have nothing to do with as a preppy twink being larp, not much else.
I also like that you are implying that the preppy and bougie twink in OP's pic had ancestors that were rough sailors.

Why is it so hard for people to address the question in OP instead of posting seething ad hominems?

We already did, those aren’t sailor tattoos. How come you don’t have a problem with women and tattoos? Is it because you don’t want to fuck them and only like big burly men with porcelain skin?

Nah, the majority of people didn't give a fuck really, life was much harder than now, fucking drinking and other stuff was one of the only reprieves people had from the daily toil. You really think people didn't have casual sex for example back in the day to let off some steam? of course they did, gays existed too but it was just not talked about and things like prostitution was rife.

>And they aren’t sailor tattoos :)
Yes they are, this >>16747685 is what classic traditional sailor tattoos look like.
>>16747771
I don't think you understand what the logical conclusion of the argument you are making is.
So following your logic it would only be okay for people to get tats like pic in OP if they have ancestors that were sailors who had tats like >>16747685
And yes, I know since I posted the pic and he is an upper class preppy swede.

The obsessive tat defenders seem very low IQ so far.
>>
>>16747788
And what OP posted are not sailor tattoos. They’re based off American traditional and Russian tattoos. Not a single ship or anything maritime, you goof.

You seem to be too dumb to understand that "amawican twaditional tatoohs" originated from sailors, and that sailors were pretty much the only ones who got them sleeved like OP.

I simply came across the pic in OP, wondered what would compel someone to do something so larpy and cringy, and posted here asking about it, didn't expect to get swarmed by people neurotically defending it and seething so hard.

Why does questioning it make you so upset?

Sailors would get these in the old days because they were bored out of their mind on slow days and because you'd travel a lot. Today's sailors majority have internet and stuff to do when off duty and travel has never been easier. Hard men still work the jobs but it's not what it used to be in that regard and it's for the better... all in all as a sailor I see no reason to get any sailor tattoos specially when in this day I know people who've never stepped foot on ship and have anchor tattoos and such and I've made fun of this type of tattoo with my colleagues

Tatts, like other modes of fashion, is a form of self-expression. Self-expression is just as much experimentation as it is the final product.; your style, Simply put, style is a sense of fashion you find appealing. In order to find your style, there needs to be some reference to the outside world as society will punish you for not appealing to its sensibilities. But, referencing and incorporating foreign styles can be beneficial because of the sheer amount of work, time, and resources that finding your style requires.

why so many tatbros in this thread getting buttblasted that people are discussing whether or not they think tattoos are fashionable on a fashion board? they are fair game just like any other aspect of fashion (and don't kid yourself people get them 100% for fashion despite whatever bullshit about "tradition" or "meaning" is being said here). it's also a perfectly reasonable aesthetic judgment to think they don't look good lol.

also i am genuinely lmaoing at the irony of people on 4chan of all places immediately resorting to throwing around "incel" and "virgin" immediately. you sound like females. not into tats personally. i told my ex that (who has tattoos) only because she asked me why i dont have any and she lost her shit. thinking that people with tattoos are edgy and confident and interesting and have sex while people who dont are seething insecure basic virgins is truly a lethal dosage of copium.
