I'm going to put in my two cents here. I understand everyone has an opinion and here is my opinion based on my time spent in the tattoo industry and time I have spent in many different areas rural and big city. First off, I grew up in a town much smaller than Miles City and one of the first things taught to me from professional, respectable parents was to never judge anyone. My father was a police officer for 25 years and if it's one thing he taught me riding in the car with him on all my free time as a boy was that everyone is capable of the doing the same things, and thus to never judge anyone based on how they look, how much money they make, or where they come from. For you to judge someone based on their haircut or how they dress is a bad as judging someone because they are black,white,hispanic,etc. Its just as bad as looking at a ethnic person from any culture and judging them based on movies they were in. You see a movie with Arabs playing terrorist and now every time you see an Arab you think they are a terrorist? Same concept. If you are biased enough to not teach your kid whats right and wrong and whats real and fake then you have exposed your own bigotry. Its the same way you are judging this girl. You might as well judge the owner because he is African-American. Physical prejudice is the exact same as racism, judging based on the surface of preconceived societal bias. As for the tattoo industry, I've spent over ten years in it and have been heavily involved in the people in it. I run a successful business with many caring and professional clients. Its funny, out of all the people I have come across in my travels the most humble and respectful people have been those that are "different" to biased folk. We wear our tattoos, piercing, clothing as an armor to protect us against racist,judging biased people like yourself. If you were to walk into his shop, he would give you the time of day and be as respectful as he could, even if it was on the street. Now the question is would you do the same? We do not judge people and that's the difference. If you're gonna have an opinion, please make sure its an educated one because just saying "I raise my kids here so i shouldn't have to see this" is not a good reason. Growing up in this small town taught me one thing, respect your neighbors, and take that extra time out of you day to do something good for the good of the people and to always be open to new ideas and change because who knows, it might be a good thing. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
