My wife and I were planning to move to San Antonio within the next 6 years. With our combined 27 tattoos and 20? piercings(who has time to count), I guess we won't be looking at apartments. It's still a toss up between San Antonio and Memphis, though this gives a bonus to Memphis.
I can understand the thought process behind this action. These are upscale apartments, from what the article said. They tend to follow their own set of rules. Stereotypes abound. Afterall, no one that tattooed and pierced could be successful and law abiding. It reminds me of my 10th high school reunion. I attended with all my piercings and tatoos(obviously), and thinking to myself I wouldn't be the only one with a tongue ring. I was wrong. I immediately became a focus of attention. Which I had not intended. I had classmates that I barely talked to in HS telling me their life story. Yeah they worked at such and such big firm and were making hand over fist money. Tee times were a bitch, etc. But they envied me. I was able to be myself and be free. I didn't have to dress up in a monkey suit each day and be held accountable. I didn't have to put on false airs to woo a client. I heard time and time again, from asses I barely knew, "I wish I could do what you do. I wish I could get a tattoo" My advise to all them....so do it. What's more important? Your 6 figure salary, smoke and mirror life? Or doing what you really want to do? I may not have all of life's riches. I may not be able to afford the next model BMW. But I live each day on my terms and am free. Got on a tangent there.
