Tattoos used to be a rare sight

Am I the only person bothered by newspaper or Internet pictures of athletes with tattoos festooning exposed body parts?

Remember when the only time you were likely to see a person with a tattoo was at a circus -- the tattooed lady or the tattooed man? Oh, and also the occasional salty career Navy man with a tattoo who was likely to say something like, "I got this in Shanghai when I was drunk!"

But nowadays a picture of a person with multiple tattoos is a common sight. Do they still teach in school that your body is sacred?
