This Open Thread Hates Tatcalling

Not an invitation.

I just heard a great new term: tatcalling. It’s talking about the creepy interactions that happen with dudes if you have visible ink. Basically, street harassment, but they try to frame it like they’re “complimenting” your tattoos.

There are people who legitimately compliment and ask questions, but there are also tons of dudebros who use ink as an open door for their grossness.
