Nowadays, the term "hipster" means something entirely different from what it used to mean.

The link to the original video was scrubbed. I updated it. I don't know how long it will last. I'll try to find a link to "HSTsketchcomedy", who claims to own the copyright.

"Putting birds on things"!!
What's with putting birds on things?!!
Why is that cool?
And in a world of hipsters, is anyone really a hipster anymore?

Hipsters being more ubiquitous means that real hipsters have more street cred. Kind of the fad that eats itself, but still gets fatter. Laughing

One guy I heard about had x-rated versions of nursery rhymes tattooed all over his arms and legs. Tons of money + no consequences + too much PBR = guys like him. At least they'll be clearly marked for mockery in the future world. Provided they aren't a hepatitis statistic.

Cool

My kids tell me that the current definition of "hipster" (in their subculture, anyway) is "Someone who is compelled to let everyone else know that he/she was into whatever is considered 'cool' before it was considered 'cool'."

I replied that at one time the term "hipster" was often accompanied by the adjective "groovy", and was often used as a descriptor for those who thought they were cool, but weren't necessarily so...sort of like what happens when whatever used to be hip went mainstream. By definition, if the masses are doing it, it prolly isn't hip any more, type thang.

My kids informed me that the term "groovy" isn't hip any more. For that matter, neither is "hip".

Ah, well...at least "cool" still means cool.

A lot of the over-the-top ones are in the big house.

Like KISS IT, COP ! on the buttocks of several, the biohazard symbol taking up much of another one's forehead, &c.

If it weren't for the drug trade, tattoo artists would be getting $9.50 an hour.

A couple of weeks ago at work, a walking stereotype of the modern hipster strolled in. Bearded (of course), one of David Beckham's old hair styles (samurai top knot), ironic t-shirt (Pokemon!), skinny jeans rolled up and cuffed (natch), wing tips (suede), and a long, wordy sentence tattooed on his forearm (a quote from Moby Dick, or some other "retro" book? Possibly the list of ingredients in Pabst Blue Ribbon?).
Anyway, I had a nice little chuckle...
Ironic, considering I was once young, dumb and "hip"...

You see the term "body art" misused all over the place. This is the real deal :

It has grown to be the designer equivalent of "jumping the shark" or played out.

The "hipster" thing I believe most find distasteful, even in the fading wake of their own youth, because to be a modern hipster, little effort is needed, but they all try too hard (for no reason--part of the uniform, I guess). It's a simple acknowledgement of the things criticized of decades passed, choosing which to mix and match, and the icing on the cake is either ironic, purposefully-failed-offensive, or extreme brand recognition.

The funniest part is they're always looking for something "new" (old, different, extreme) to exploit. I wouldn't be surprised if tri-corn hats or Elizabethan collars were next month's item to pair with ostrich-skin cowboy boots and mesh tank tops. Laughing Hollywood has mash-up movie themes, music has mash-up mixes, we now have mash-up generation. Who needs anything else when you can be a mediocre mess? cheers

Nope couldn't afford to run a tattoo business making 9.50 an hour, good ink costs more than you'd make all day at that rate.

You work in a prison, you see so many bad ones you could pretty much say "Most of them."

I made it a point to show an example of the exception to that.

But seriously. Who else in that age group beside drug dealers & college football players at big schools have the $$$$ for so much body ink ?

It reminds me of women in the middle east who wear their dowries in gold coins & chains around their necks when they go out so people will know how important they are (how much their husbands coughed up to get them).

Trust fund brats. And the striving wannabes who can't actually afford it but emulate them with gaudy but inferior stuff. And those two groups describe the conspicuous consumers from every era, on back to the beginning of mechanical reproduction. If Jay Gatsby were imagined today, he'd be a trying-too-hard hipster in Bushwick. (And he'd die crashing his fixie into McCarren Park Pool.)

Some people golf or buy nice cars. Some of them pay for through drug proceeds. Some of them work for a living

I know a young guy that has enough ink on him to pay for an Escalade. He drives an old Bronco that he is rebuilding. He doesn't do drugs and hardly drinks. He just likes his ink. And he is a hard worker.

There are plenty of tattoo artist that should have their machines taken away. But a good tattoo artist has to be skilled on so many levels. The design, the drawing and putting on a 3-D surface that moves. Plus knowing how to draw it for that surface. It's different.

Yak I imagine you do see some atrocious ink where you work. I see plenty of it walking around on the outside. I'll ask them, "WHo did your tatts?" So I know never to go there Laughing Most of those artist aren't getting $100.00 per hour. But they may very well be getting more than they are worth.

The ones that really get me are the Chinese words. Usually on their necks or someplace prominent.

They don't like it when I suggest that, no matter what the guy told them those symbols mean, they probably really say, "White People Eat Shit." Laughing

The majority of our customers are normal people, people save for their body art like some folks save for a vacation, yes tattooing is a luxury item, today's economy shows this, but to think only druggies get tattooed is ridiculous, I tattoo a lot of policemen and I tattoo a lot of mothers, even grandmothers. doctors, nurses, soldiers. I have customers who are bringing their children to me (legal age of course), and hipsters, and stinky patchouli wearing hippies.
I once tattooed a 67 year old woman cause she was watching that TV show Charmed and all the women witches had tattoos and she thought they looked pretty.
Do I tattoo Biker types? yes I do, do I tattoo criminals well these days i'm sure I have.
Culture is culture be it traditional or Pop culture, the one thing I know Is I have helped people of all walks of life get that piece of art that they just had to have etched into their skin forever, something no one can ever take from them, they take home a piece of me, and I take home a piece of them, and there is nothing that I enjoy more than a customer from 10yrs ago who walks in to my shop just like an old friend I havent seen for a decade


Yes tattooing back in the day was considered to be lowbrow and done in the corners of back alley make shift shops, but many of us have struggled through out the years to turn this craft into a respectable business , and we will continue to do so, and one of the best ways is by educating people about our industry

Oh and by no means should you compare the body art industry with what goes on in prisons and peoples kitchens, two different animals

Tattooing has gone beyond a direct relation to drug dealers, users and scumbags. If I could count how many coke dealers I know of that look like someone's accountant and how many God-fearing Christians I know who sit on a Harley and have full sleeves and Bible images marked on their necks.

Takes all kinds. The fact remains: tattooing is damn expensive (and most people forget, fairly permanent)--if you aren't getting the best, why would you pay a bargain price for sh*t work? The quality and choice of tattoo now signifies the origins, intent and lifestyle of the individual more than just the fact someone has a tattoo. Quite ingenious advertisement, really, helps clarify a picture of someone if they're your "tribe" or not. Guy with "WHITE POWER" on his forehead? Probably gonna keep him at arm's length. Works quite well, beats casual conversation with idiots sometimes--and I'm not aware of a passive-aggressive tattoo insulting me once.

Cool
