Anonymous asked: But everything originally belonged to a culture... Why can't someone get a tattoo like marking?
I already answered that; reread my last post
Anonymous asked: Just because one culture started it doesn't mean nobody else can use it. That wouldn't make any sense.
How does not not make any sense?
‘Henna’ tattoos are a part of South Asian culture, and it’s inappropriate when people use them as a form of entertainment without understanding or caring for the cultural value.
If you choose to ignore the fact that they belong to a culture and not just whomever feels like it, then don’t bother messaging me
Anonymous asked: Some people like it because it's pretty. I know that's not the perfect reason but really, it's a tattoo. (In a sense) It means something different to everyone. That's like someone singing a song by adele because they like it. They don't have to sing it because of how she feels about it, or how she reflects on it. They just like it because it's pretty. Does that make sense?
adele is not the same as a culture
I don’t care how much they like it, it’s still cultural appropriation
i’m really tired of people getting ‘henna’ tattoos
like let’s just ignore the fact that that’s a major part of desi culture and holds much significance to the community, and just do it for fun
yay we’re so accepting!!
