Your Beautiful Body

I’ve come to the conclusion that men that get large tattoos deal with insecurity and have low confidence. Most outward statements make a louder inside statement. If there was one thing I could say to a particular boy I know it would be, what have you done to your beautiful body?! Shirtless will now mean showing off a life size picture on your skin.

But maybe I’m just biased since I think the male body is beautiful. Not in a sexual way, but for what it represents, which is everything that God intended it to.

Funny how when you tell someone who has low confidence that they did a good job (when of course they really did do a good job) they often times simply shrug and say that it was just luck. As was the case with Mr. Cha Cha (his nick name, which is fitting because he actually did the Cha Cha).    

Now that school is back so is caffeine for me. Unfortunately, my body doesn’t share the positive view I have of coffee. The other day I thought I saw a figure walk by in the corner of my eye in the reflection of a window. Funny how real these things can look.

My car is in the middle of being worked on, which makes me very happy because I was starting not to trust it. I have the amazing fortune of having a father that is a mechanic. I’m starting to think I should marry a mechanic. They do say girls tend to go for a man who has characteristics of her father.


P.S. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t see anything wrong with tattoos…but please think twice before you stick something permanent on that takes up half your upper body.  


  1. There are a bunch of people at my school with tattoos. Mostly they are just tattoos of their zodiac signs. Or at least what WAS their zodiac signs. O.O Uh-oh...

    What about women that get big ole tattoos on their back? Are they insecure too?

  2. Humm, I can see where you're coming from with the point you're making, and I would even say that maybe like at least 1/3 of the time it is true, however, there is something else to consider. There's also a group of people who like tattoos as a form of art and self-expression and then there is a category of people who get a tattoo, get addicted to the feelign and can't stop. And it doesn't always have anythign to do with beign insecure, although again, sometimes it does. The reason why I feel I can speak on the subject is because I have tattoos myself and know tattooed peopel who've gotten them for various reasons, so I hope you don't feel somehow offended by my comment regarding your opinion on the matter? Just putting in my two cents :)

  3. Jeremy: LOL, I have no idea. But I would assume less likely because to fill that need we’d probably run after something a bit more emotionally satisfying. Like the approval of the opposite sex.

    Julia: Not at all! Disagree with me as you see fit. It would simply fall under the category of psychological stimulants. : ) Addiction is a reasonable explanation. Art and self-expression are also a very logical reasons. And a lot of tattoos stand for something personal. As you have tattoos yourself I value your opinion as a source of personal knowledge.

    It’s probably the psychologist in me that views humans in general as complex psychological beings that struggle more with an id than an ego. Hence, I’m sure I will be disagreed with often.

    But really, thanks for giving your opinion! Chances are, if there’s something personal that I would be offended by, I probably wont blog about it. =)

  4. Haha, good point, Leanne!! I think it should considered a blogger rule or something - do not blog about things you might get offending responses to lol ;-)
