    If we are evolving and getting better at things then why do people still get tattoos?

    Well I never thought of it before I just did. I guess when you don't have a relationship with Jesus Christ you think of those things?

    WWJT? Well revelation claims he has a tattoo on his thigh unless it's his robe draped over his thigh. This is what I think his tattoo might say if he had one other then Lord of lords on his thigh. He would tattoo Leviticus 19:28 on his body. Or even Gen. 1:1-Rev.22-21.

    Evolution doesn't exist, so the reason for getting tattoos is for something else.

    Tattooing

    Maybe a subliminal need to attract attention or an ego need to reinforce a sense of identity or self esteem or peer approval? Whatever may explain this bodily self effacement shrinks in comparison to self inflicted scar tissue of the soul.

    Why do you assume it is subliminal? Most people are well aware that they get tattos, wear makeup wear nice clothes buy fancy cars etc etc specifically to attract attention.

    My own reasons for not getting a tattoo are:
    1. They can attract significant negative attention in the work place.
    2. They are relatively irreversible.

    Not everyone evolves, take the creationists for example, and they would have to agree on this point. 🙂

    Because of the second definition Merriam-Webster offers, "existing or functioning below the threshold of consciousness". That's why. Your "...own reasons for not getting a tattoo." are pragmatic and therefore make sense. You care.

    So are you saying that the Africans and Mexicans. S.A. don't evolve as fast as the Europeans and Asians?

    Well I disagree then, as I have already stated (and you have apparently ignored as is your tradition).
    When my neighbor got himself a tatoo, he quite clearly was very conscious of the fact that he was getting it so that he could show it off to everyone - and so was everyone else.
