Subeeds,
Thank you for your thoughts.
What you say is true, but if I could read Japanese I may have interest in something that meant a lot to me.
I see where you're coming from, but at the same time, I need you to see where I am. We're not talking about putting a pretty picture on me, we're talking about marking myself with something that means something to me and at the same time holds so much of its own meaning.
I find a lot of inspiration from your culture, all I ask is that you open your mind to mine. People mark themselves. Usually with careless thoughtless pictures of corporate symbols and "dragon tattoos" with misunderstood meanings. I, on the other hand, know the meanings behind these symbols and these deep symbolic signs speak to me. I don't understand what exactly would happen to change the way I see these meanings and the culture they represent.
Please consider this outside point of view.
-H
