Buy Yourself a Personality

No personality is uniquely distinct; our personalities are the sum of various parts of our social, biological, and cognitive world. For some it takes years to find out who they really are, but one sure shortcut on getting a personality is by buying it. Saves time, hassles of over-analyzing, and can be implemented very quickly.

One quick time saver is the infamous tattoo; a marking made by inserting ink into the layers of skin to change the pigment for decorative or other reasons. Tattoos have been around for centuries starting around the Neolithic times and have served many purposes throughout history as a mark for rites of passage, marks of status and rank, symbols of religious and spiritual devotion, decorations for bravery, sexual lures and marks of fertility, pledges of love, punishment, amulets and talismans, protection, and as the marks of outcasts, slaves and convicts. So it can be said, that the purpose of a tattoo is an expressive communicative symbol that gives insight to one’s personality … or for the sake of ‘buying yourself a personality’, one’s personality can be molded to fit the tattoo of their choice:

The ‘I like cute things’ tat

The ‘I like showing off my body’ tat:


The ‘I am a rebel that defies conventions’ tat

One thought on “Buy Yourself a Personality – Tattoos”

  1. I paeronslly own a Macbook pro and use Mac’s all the time. From paeronsl experience, and a lot of background tech knowledge, I can say that microsoft’s (I didn’t capitalize microsoft because it does not deserve the honor) operating system is crap. I stand by the acronym Piece of Crap (PC) for a reason. windows is not sandboxed, so programs can edit the root OS and fuck it up. OSX gives all program a shroot so that nothing can hinder your computer completely. After using Macs for years, I can say that I have never ONCE had one crash on me. Yeah, certain programs may go down, but i can continue work. My PC . Wow, it’s crashed soo badly that I can’t even start it up in safe mode. All because I plugged a flash drive into a USB port. OSX is the sleekest and sexiest OS in existence and every aspect of it just works. Macs never get virus’ because of the shroots mentioned earlier. The hardware that Apple engineers for their products are superb. Aluminum unibodies, led backlit screens, etc. Even their mice and keyboards are a cut above the rest. Macs are also not that expensive. The myth stands that the reason Macs are 1000$ plus is all the brand name. The truth is, you get what you pay for. The profit margin is normal. The hard drives, screens, and the like are higher quality, and thus, the price is higher. Apple has made THE FASTEST computer on the market. Their Mac Pro has a dual hexacore clocked at 2.93 GHZ, 32 GB ram, 4 two terabyte HDDs, Two ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB GPU’s that can be used for regular computations, and touch sensitive mice. Find me a PC (even alienare) with that level of raw power! You need to have a solid background in tech to even attempt to insult Mac.
