I already made a separate post with a tweet I made regarding the subject, but I wanted to speak about it in further detail.
This morning I was enjoying a cup of hot chocolate at the beach by myself when a man I have never seen before grabbed my head from behind to adjust it so he could observe the tattoos behind my ear and on the back of my neck. I was so terrified I couldn’t even move. When he had the audacity to ask me, “What do the diamonds behind your ear mean?” I flipped. 
"How dare you invade my personal space and touch me without my consent! I should knock your teeth down your throat for that!"
"— but I just wanted to see your tattoos!" 
Unfortunately, things like this are very common in the body modification community. People grab my arms to look at my sleeves or my hands to look at my hand/finger tattoos, some will adjust the top of my shirt to look at my chest piece, a few have lifted up my skirts and dresses to look at the tattoos on my shins and thighs, and one person grabbed the bottom of my lip and pulled it out when they saw I had a tattoo inside my lip.
I hear countless stories like mine on a daily basis. Some include how people will stick their fingers in the lobes of someones ear, how people will touch the piercings on someones face and ask “did it hurt?”, and how people will touch the bodies of others to observe their tattoos. It’s a trend that seriously needs to end.
You shouldn’t touch anyone without their permission, but people seem to think it’s justifiable to touch someone with body modifications because “I just want to see!” Nothing justifies or excuses it. Body modifications doesn’t mean people can touch us without our consent. Please respect the individual spaces of others and knock it off.

jesus this even happens what the actual living breathing fuck


Things like this have actually somewhat slowed me down in terms of filling in more pieces. I get it enough with the little i have. not good for people with social anxiety.

    “I was spanked all the time. My dad would, in social situations. When we were in restaurants, if I spilled a glass of water, he’d get me in a headlock and dig his knuckles into my head or smack me in the face. I never understood that, why a parent would be so embarrassed or so intimidated by what other people would think of you in a restaurant, just because your child spilled something on accident, to have to punish them for having an accident. That’s a weird psychological trick to play on a child because…I still put myself down and cuss myself out for knocking things over, I get really upset with myself because I’ve been conditioned to not spill things, don’t have accidents, don’t have human error. Everything’s supposed to be perfect at all times…Fuck him for that.” - Kurt Cobain
