I hate the people who treat gay people as an accessory.
- No I will not go shopping with you because I’m gay.
- It doesn’t make me a ‘bad gay’ because I don’t go to gay bars every time I go out and because I don’t like a certain chick flick. I am allowed to like different genres of films.
- I will not go on a date with your gay friend just because we’re both gay, if you know the type of guy that I like and we have things in common fair enough, but this is never the case.
- We’re not all the same, we’re not all one dimensional carbon copies of each other, so please stop treating us as if we are.
- Just because I’m gay it doesn’t mean I’m suppose to know everything about women’s fashion/makeup/what looks good on them. I am a man after all, and I know what looks good on myself and other men.
- If the only reason you’re friends with someone is because they’re gay you need to seriously re-evaluate your priorities.

umm thank you, but I have no idea what you’re talking about?
It kinda pisses me off when people tell me that I’m going to regret getting my tattoos in a few years. So I thought I’d write a blog post to explain the ‘issues' that people seem to have with them.
Firstly, if I’m going to regret having multiple tattoos done that’s all on me, it’s got nothing to do with anyone else so I don’t see why other people should bring it up. I only get a tattoo after months of deliberating whether to get it or not and although I don’t believe that every single tattoo you get has to have a special meaning, but as long as I feel that it’ll mean something or remind me of that point of my life when I look at it 20/30 years down the line and will make me smile then I’m more than happy to get it.
Secondly, it’s not as if I’m going to be the only person in their 70’s/80’s with tattoos, as more and more people get tattoo’s these days. My body’s not going to be looking great at that age anyway, may as well keep it looking different to everyone else.
Thirdly, even if this was the case (and it isn’t) most people regret doing things earlier on in their lifetime, it’s not as if people live out their perfect life up until they die with zero regrets. I actually think that I’d prefer to experiment with a bit of body modification when I’m young rather than wishing I did when I’m older. I think that the only way I’m ever going to regret getting tattoos in the future is because as soon as I got my first one I realised that it was all downhill from there and could to get as many as I wanted.
Finally, I do realise that they can be a massive burden in the workplace in terms of getting hired and I’ve already considered this, so you don’t have to remind me about it.
So just to finish off, if you’ve read this post and I’ve mentioned any of the things you relate tattoos with, I know what I’m doing so you don’t need to tell me any of the above. Also, I know that if someone doesn’t like tattoos they don’t like them and you’ll never be able to convince them to like them, well it works the same way for people with tattoos.
I thought as my first fashion post I’d show one of my favourite outfit combinations so far, I wore it out to Cardiff a week or so ago. I decided to wear a teal shirt that I hadn’t wore out in a couple of months as I feel it doesn’t go with much in my wardrobe. Since I wasn’t feeling the buttoned up look this particular night I decided to pair it up with a ‘cat lady’ tshirt and a necklace (I added other pieces of jewellery including a ring and watch). I also wore these with a pair of grey skinny jeans and my new favourite shoes; my black blazers. I also decided to try something different with my hair and bring back my old quiff.
Here’s a picture of the complete outfit, apologies for the bad quality.
