    It's nothing really. Maybe for the Mexican Day of the Dead day it has symbolism
    but not much else I would think. A little like cursing, it bothers some, cdoesn't
    bother others. Reminds me, sometimes it is the little things that trip us up. Say What!

    Here's something a Christian knows... Matthew 7:1, "Judge not that ye be not judged."

    If you were to look at my elementary school notebooks, among the doodles, you would find skulls, crossbones, and knives dripping in blood, but I haven't turned out to be a serial killer yet. I think there has always been a fascination with that sort of thing, particularly among kids and very young people. For whatever reason, this is also carried into adulthood among some people, most of whom also don't turn out to be serial killers, such as biker groups and even some military organizations.

    I think everyone has their own thought on the symbolism of skulls. Just for me personally, it's not a symbol I would ever identify with.

    So, how many more times do you have to state it?

    Let's here something different; positive about these Colorado people.

    Absolutely NOT. Not liking skulls and tattoos is just the way we, and many others in America, feel. For those that like both, that's up to them, but for those that don't, they have a right to complain. Not everyone wants to be "open-minded" about these things and that should be ok as well.

    There is a HUGE difference between not liking something, and complaining constantly about what you do not like. There are things that I don’t like, and I try to avoid those things (or people), but I seldom complain about it.
    I remember when I was just a little girl, and complaining (as all kids do) about something. My Mother explained to me that when something is a problem, then we should deal with the problem in some way that changes the problem ; but just to stand there and complain doesn’t do any good at all.

    While we might have the “right to complain” about things, a person eventually learns (or not) that most people get tired of hearing someone who is constantly complaining about things, but not doing anything about the situation.
    If you do not like seeing the restaurant worker with tattoos and skulls, then don’t go to that restaurant again, but don’t expect the restaurant to change, or to fire someone just because you don’t like seeing it.

    Well, Yvonne, we did move away. Not nearly as many people here in Loveland that display skulls and tattoos as there was in Jacksonville, but then, from people I talked to there, some folks consider Jacksonville as "tattoo city", as well as "murder city" compared to here. Cheyenne, Wyoming is ranked high of cities lacking people with tattoos. There are those with tattoos there, but, as I read online, most would rather not have any.

    Yvonne, many people, even folks on this forum, do threads, and sometimes continuing threads, complaining about different things. There are those that continually complain about Trump.

    So, I'm thinking of getting this tattoo. What do you think?
