  • yes, I would get a tattoo because I think they are a great way to show what I care about. Probably smaller ones, but I have been eying song phrases I would have as a tattoo!

  • You did a good job explaining how terrible this natural disaster was, and it was quite horrific. The devastation should be helped by the community and surrounding communities to help build it back together. One thing that could be added in your post is more information about hurricanes, maybe some statistics. One thing in specific you can add is…Read More

    Tattoos and Their Controversies

    Tattoos are fun, new, and exhilarating for an 18 year old, but with older age tattoos may not be worth it. Some may say tattoos are not classy and they don’t belong in the workplace. Many business owners have...

    • Dear Alexis,
      I agree with your article “Tattoos and their controversies” because it is true that many tattoos have meanings or a backstory behind them yet it is punished for having them. Tattoos are a beautiful way to express who you are and it’s saddening seeing how many have to cover them up for it seems like such a terrible thing to have.
      One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is “She’s definitely a party girl…”. I think this is quite true, especially when it comes to being a female anything done to the body becomes an automatic stare. I am curious to see what many would say when it comes to a guy getting a tattoo.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because it is nice to see other people discussing the situation of tattoos. I can’t wait to see what else you have in store about your perspective on other things.

    • I agree with your article and I thought that is was a very well written piece. You did a good job explaining your point and getting it across. I think that tattoos are cool and can show someone’s backstory. Would you get a tattoo?

      • yes, I would get a tattoo because I think they are a great way to show what I care about. Probably smaller ones, but I have been eying song phrases I would have as a tattoo!

    • Dear Alexis:

      I am impressed by your post, “Tattoos and Their Controversies,” because any tattoo can say a lot about a person. No matter the size, shape, or intensity a tattoo can be really meaningful. Tattoos can mean a message without needing to say a word. 

      One sentence that stood out to me is, “ Tattoos have an abundance of meanings, whether or not one asks, there is always a meaning behind them, and it is consciously or subconsciously known.” because when you get a tattoo no one understands why you got it. 

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to reading more about your thoughts on people’s tattoos because it is true they can be really meaningful.


    • Dear Alexis,
      I enjoyed reading your post. I agree with what you’re saying about the emotional side of a tattoo. I agree with this because I can relate.

      When you said, “The controversy that comes with tattoos are quite extreme, but the meanings in tattoos in a personal aspect is much stronger than others opinions.” When I showed my mom my tattoo she wasn’t very happy for the fact that it’s just lines but what it means to me and how I see it is more than just lines.

      I appreciate your writing and I look forward to reading more of your work. Hopefully it’s something I can agree it again.

  • I think that your examples using Instagram about your body image is a great way to express how social media hurts us. I agree with you on the topic of physical appearance being the most important aspect on social media. I personally believe that it’s wrong for us girls to be put in a specific category and judged solely on the appearance of s…Read More

    Service Animals and Their Loyalties

    Animals have had a large role in human’s lives since the Stone Age about 9,000 years ago. In today’s world, it’s different, “Never have animals provided such dedicated and particular help to humans as they do today in the...

    • You do a very good job of explaining what a service animal is capable of and what they are commonly used for! I would suggest adding in more about what makes these animals different from pets. For example, “The loyalty shown by service animals is unmatched to those of a regular pet, this is because they are put through extensive training to make sure their companion is in stable health condition at all times.” You also mention that monkeys, miniature horses and pigs can be used as service animals in the beginning of your paragraph. My other suggestion would be to elaborate on that sentence because dogs are the only animal that is mentioned in the rest of the paper.
