Forum Discussion: Ridiculed for Wanting Simple Black Dot Tattoo

I tried to do just that. I shyly walked into a tattoo parlor and described what I wanted. The guy at the counter and the tattoo artist waiting for a client were rude and dismissive. Clearly, I was insulting their intelligence and their art by asking for a stupid black dot. I tried to explain that it was symbolically important to me, but they merely talked about how the overhead of just getting set up was going to cost me more than the tattooing itself and that it’s a lot of work for a black dot, etc. By the time they were ready to charge me and get me started, I felt so dispirited that I declined and left.”
