    tattoo is part of the witchcraft family.have you not notice the image that is so often associated it?
    also hospitals here in London will refuse a person to give blood if their body is tattooed. right there in Dominica the main person that administer tattoo is a vampire fan I remember seeing his car number plate was word the said so
    tottoo in short is blood contaminatin.

    Why Dominicans down there doesn’t get that kind of tattoo? Is only koshone they putting on their skin? Well the reason why is because they know the country isn’t nice and most Dominicans just want to get out, I know so many young folks that were eagerer to leave, and guess what… THEY LEFT! Dominicans who are out of dominica always seem to miss it the most… :roll: :roll:

        @qstorm78 – Out of curiosity – since I tend to see and/or hear that “you are too small minded” worn-out cliche being used towards persons who express aversions to foolish practices – what exactly does “you are too small-minded phrase” mean?

        Had I been “big-minded” (well based on your self-justified criterion of what constitutes small-mindedness), would my posting above have been different and hence more approving of absolutely STUPID practices such as tattooing?
