Example text

42 MARJORIE C. FEINSON AND TAMAR BEN DROR my mother was going through hell and I needed to be supportive of her, not get on her nerves, feeling that I had to be the perfect girl, do everything to make Mom feel better; there was nobody to support me. I just felt totally alone. These narrative descriptions of emotional neglect and the absence of a loving caregiver are similar to childhood experiences related by Becky Thompson’s interviewees, including two of the five Jewish women, Gilda and Sara (1994).

Mercedes also stated that, ‘‘they just accentuate what I already have,’’ indicating that tattoos just add to the overall beauty she already possesses. Given the placement of Sydney’s tattoos, she did not think that they had anything to do with her feelings about her beauty. She told me: ‘‘I can only see three of my tattoos. I never see the other ones. ’’ Sidney suggests, then, that many of her tattoos are not for her viewing pleasure. ’’ Interestingly enough, her tattoos are not for everyone else to see, just her and her girlfriend.

Two of the women in my study felt that their tattoos added to their personal level of confidence, in their appearance or in general. Lucy also thinks that ‘‘in a theoretical sense’’ her tattoos make her more beautiful. She tells me: I am more comfortable with my body and myself because I feel like I made it my own now. So, to me, I think that it makes me more beautiful because I feel more confident as a person overall, but physically I don’t think that it really changes anything.
