Miss America

October 3, 2013

I guess I have lost my campaign against tattoos when a Miss America candidate makes the finals with a very visible tattoo.  If the Miss America pageant doesn’t have a problem with a tattoo, I guess pro-sports, college sports, and high school sports won’t do anything about it either.  I do not find tattoos making anyone look more athletic or macho.  What I see is some hideous ink marring a young body for life.  Sure, LeBron James looks ferocious on a basketball floor now, but what will he look like in 15 years working in some office or representing some company at a business conference?  It used to be that you put tattoos where they could be covered, but now they put them all over their body and it is impossible to cover them all up.  To add to that, the many forms of long hair tied in various knots again does not make them look like an athlete, but like some unkempt bum off the street.  Peyton Manning seems to do quite well without the tattoos, long hair, lip rings, and what have you as Michael Strahan did in his era.  Let’s just hope that our young athletes choose to follow Manning and Strahan instead of a Dennis Rodman.
