I just figured out the whole generation why tattoo thing. People are truly trying to become the Internet Mass Media.. Be absorbed by the flow, the stream of visual information that pics/gifs/vines/ and videos now represent in their lives. Forget about becoming a metal android, or a fur covered manimal. This is part of the posthuman meme that wants to become the software. Not in a singularity or brain upload way, but in the way that maintains animal emotions, but reflects a totally mediated life experience.
