When I was young, I was very stupid and got the dumbest tattoo. It's a Polynesian sleeve tattoo. I'm not saying that the a Polynesian tattoo is a dumb idea in general, but there was no need for me to get one.
It's not my heritage, so I feel embarrassed that I was once a giant tool & appropriated a culture onto my skin. I'm looking into getting it removed, which is crazy expensive, but that's fine, I have the money for it. It's just a long, painstaking process for a stupid mistake I made when I was seventeen. The Polynesian culture is beautiful & I feel bad.
It's a beautiful culture.
