serial killer tattoos
hey guys so this video is going back to my roots a little bit I feel like I used to do a lot more true-crime content and there's a few reasons why I kind of stopped doing it first of all it's instant D monetization this video I know is probably going to get D monetized I feel like just even saying the word D monetized in a video YouTube fives it they're like oh she thinks it's gonna get D monetized well there must be a reason for that so let's just do monetize it and then you
serial killer tattoos
guys have been really patient with my sponsorships lately so I really appreciate that so who cares if this videos d monetized right secondly I just feel like what is my hair oh my god I have not put conditioner in it for like a week because I was in the desert another reason that I stopped doing the true-crime content is because I just felt like nothing was original about it anymore and I didn't just need to sit here and regurgitate all the same information that you've heard a million
times about the famous

serial

killer

s so I have been brainstorming different ways that I could still do true crime and content but make it original day we're gonna be doing a little bit more of a commentary video about something that really I hate so someone had asked me to do a video on my pet peeves well today we're covering a big one if you're interested I will link all of my true crime videos that I've ever done in the past if you want to watch something similar from me I
will link everything down below in the description box so firstly I just want to say there I have nothing against true crime and being interested in true crime fascinated by it even obsessed with it that's fine you know liking the movies that come out we have a Ted Bundy movie coming out on May 3rd from Netflix which let me know if you want my thoughts on that I'm thinking about doing it on my horror channel though then we of course have the documentaries podcasts books like there's
so much true crime content and like entertainment out there and I don't think that there's anything wrong with being fascinated by it and being interested in it so I'm just throwing that out there I love it I it's not weird to say I love it I'm interested in it I am one of those people that do enjoy a good true crime documentary also nothing against

tattoos

I have a little one myself you know there I have no problem with people putting whatever they wore on their bodies it
does not affect anyone else so as long as you love it that's all that matters except when you combine the two when you combine

tattoos

and true crime such /

serial

killer

s then you're getting into some weird waters then I feel like it starts to affect other people in that situation and I'll get into why in a second but I was first exposed to the concept of

killer

tattoos

on tumblr you guys remember tumblr right back then it was more about school shooters for some reason the true
crime community on there was popping off I'm not sure if there is still a true crime community on tumblr at this point since yahoo has bought them out and made everything much much more PG but I do know that there is still a younger true crime community especially on Instagram like there's hashtags for it and things like that and it's still about the same as you would expect that you would see on tumblr but there was a time where everyone was trying to be edgy and claim that they
loved you know various

killer

s of different types of crimes and different shootings side note the 20th anniversary of Columbine actually just occurred and I highly recommend watching the video that ask a mortician did on the kind of misconceptions about the events of Columbine if you want a little bit more clarity about the event and I just thought it was a really informative good well done video and then as time progressed Instagram became more popular and then people started sharing

serial

killer

tattoos

on Instagram in fact there's a whole hashtag dedicated to just

tattoos

of

serial

killer

s you feel like rolling your eyes for an hour go scroll through there so personally I feel that there's kind of a spectrum of people who are interested in the true crime community you know on the lighter in do you have those people who are just like who I really liked that documentary about Ted Bundy you know it's just kind of watching whatever's on Netflix as far as the
documentaries and movies go maybe the fictional type movies that we talked about and then more towards the middle you have those who listen to all the podcasts read the books you know watch the documentaries and movies still that's kind of where I feel like I fall into you know I've read some books on it in the past and I do enjoy the fictional type movies and I also watch the documentaries sometimes a podcast here and there but generally it's not really my thing but I kind of
consider myself in the middle ground of being interested in the true crime stuff and then you get more towards the site of Bristow philia which is an actual philia people are attracted to those who have committed heinous crime I'm trying to stay monetized even though I feel like that's a waste of time to even try at this point many say that those specifically young girls that tend to claim that they're in love with school shooters have high pursue philia maybe some of them do I feel
like some of them are just trying to be more edgy and like prove their obsession for true crime again there's nothing wrong with being interested in true crime murder death everything that goes along with it because it's actually deep rooted in our psychology and our history as a species for us to be interested in humans murdering other humans I mean throughout history it's been portrayed in art and poetry and some seek out those dark darker themes on the Internet some seek it out in
serial killer tattoos
reality but there's no denying that it doesn't captivate us as a species I'm not saying that there's anything to really be ashamed of when we are enjoying the entertainment aspect of true crime and being interested in these horrific crimes I mean there's a reason why there's a whole Museum of death where you can go look at all these photos and graphic images and read the stories about these horrific crimes humans love it and that's just a fact but there does need to
be some kind of self-regulation when it comes to this obsession I mean where is the line and when do we cross it my personal line is if I were to meet a family member of a victim of one of these

killer

s let's say would I be able to have a conversation with this person about my interest in their crimes the

killer

's crimes that is for example I would never wear

serial

killer

merch because I would never want to run into a family member which granted the odds are really not likely but I
still think there needs to be a level of respect for those surviving of the victims of these horrific people that committed these crimes there still needs to be a sensitivity there about the victims who lost their lives you know they did not deserve to die and I think rocking someone's face on your shirt that killed people is not sensitive or treating the situation properly in my opinion so I would not have

serial

killer

search or shoot emerge or anything like that I would not have

serial

-

killer

arts up in my home and I will not have

serial

killer

tattoos

on my body in my opinion these kinds of things really glamorize them as people and we cannot forget that they are actually terrible human being you know I have walked through the museum of death in LA and wherever you turn you can't get away from the graphic images all over the walls and everything in there it just makes you nauseous throughout because you're just confronted with this reality of what the crimes
actually were in the gory details of the crime and it really puts it into perspective that yes it's okay to be interested I went there on purpose because I knew what in a tale then there is this fascination that humans have with death but it's important to realize what you're actually being interested in obviously we would never I hope some people probably would but I would hope we wouldn't want to be confronted with these details in real life you know we would never want to face
a

killer

or be killed ourselves like that's asinine and I think the most damaging aspect of us kind of admiring or romanticizing glamourizing whatever you want to call it the biggest issue with that is that it creates an incentive for others to commit similar crimes and I think that is the biggest issue I have with putting a

serial

killer

on your body like his face or whatever you know we act like they're these kind of celebrities that are like ooh when in reality they are terrible
people and of course we have to address the mental illness aspect of their issues but once they've crossed that line of committing that crime I feel like there's not much to do in that situation and they need to be put in prison for life I feel like ask a mortician described it well in her video and her Columbine video where she said that the more we give recognition to these people more encouraging it is for others to follow in their footsteps ultimately I mean just look at the rise of
school shooting since Columbine has happened and a lot of those people have credited Columbine as inspiration for their the more we put their faces on our TVs on our walls and even our skin the more we romanticize the idea of being a

killer

they get Fame notoriety girlfriends even fiance's from prison because everyone loves a bad boy right till he murders you I never will understand the romanticizing of

serial

killer

s I've done a whole video on it so I'm not gonna get too into it
right now today we're strictly talking about

tattoos

and stuff but I don't understand it because do you they think that they are capable of feeling that kind of affection towards another human that's not possible when you're a

serial

killer

sociopaths Psychopaths whatever you want to call it they don't feel those emotions so they're not gonna be romantic with you you may think that but it's all not real like I mentioned there's a spectrum of people who are
interested in true crime well there's also a spectrum of

tattoos

of

serial

killer

s so let's get into some of them and some will be of

serial

killer

s and some will be school shooter related things so we're kind of covering

serial

killer

s and mass murderers here because there's a lot there are way more

tattoos

of

killer

s than you think that they are I guarantee you firstly there's the category that I like to call subtly offensive where maybe it's not recognizable that
it's a

serial

killer

s tattoo but it definitely is let's start with this one here we have the glasses of Jeffrey Dahmer and the quote below it I believe is just lyrics because I kind of dug deeper into this tattoo and I think it's just lyrics not an actual quote by Jeffrey Dahmer but for some reason it's paired with Jeffrey Dahmer's glasses not sure why this one is a little bit more obvious that it's him but it's still abstract enough where it could just be a man
serial killer tattoos
it's obviously Jeffrey Dahmer says never leave me and then we have this one which is a little bit more graphic it is of Ted Bundy's bite-mark that convicted him so again you wouldn't be able to tell that it is Ted Bundy's teeth necessarily but if you asked about it they would tell you the story behind it why would you why that's not a lot actually why but actually I have my own theories which I'll share at the end we have a quote

tattoos

blood spatter and it says we all
go a little mad sometimes which apparently is a Jeffrey Dahmer quote because they had posted it like Jeffrey Dahmer quote in the hash tag this on their lower back or their chest I think it might be their chest this is a Jeffrey Dahmer quote this is fantasy is like arrows shooting through my mind from out of the blue I love how the tattoo artists spell Jeffrey Dahmer I like that they addressed the fact that this is not for everyone it says I'm sure this will urge some people but beauty is in
the eye of the beholder I don't think the victims families are gonna find this beautiful in any way I don't think it has anything to do with beauty is in the eye of the beholder I feel like you've crossed a line when you put something from a

serial

killer

because that tells me that you admire them and their work you know I understand the awkwardness of saying like who's your favorite

serial

killer

because that's like a weird question to ask right these just take it to another
level of liking a

serial

killer

you can be fascinated by one specifically and be like you know I find their crimes to be weirdly morbid and I'm just kind of like drawn to the details of this story but to say that you have a favorite or to get specifically specific

killer

s tattooed on you that just does not make any sense to me and then you have this tattoo which is actually from Columbine this is natural selection and wrath I believe these were what was on the shirts of the school shooters
of Columbine so again the words themselves don't mean anything but because they're connected with Columbine it's a Columbine tattoo this one he just has the signatures of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold written on his hand why what is so admirable about these people like I just I just want to know I just want to talk I just want to ask these people who have these

tattoos

what makes it so fascinating and so admirable to you to put them on your body so those are some examples of what I
call subtly offensive

tattoos

they're not recognizable right away that they're

serial

killer

tattoos

but if they are definitely

serial

killer

tattoos

next you have another category which are a little bit more recognizable but they're still stylized and more artistic so you can still tell that they're meant to be

serial

killer

s or some kind of

killer

s in some way but their artistic their their stylized so let's look at some of those we have this one of Ted Bundy in the back
you can see Manson Charles Manson's back there represented so this one is like not a direct portrait necessarily like a realism portrait but it's still Ted Bundy I saw a lot of HH Holmes

tattoos

actually which is interesting I understand he was more fascinating there's even a whole American Horror Story season based around HH Holmes there is even a stylized artistic tattoo done of Jim Jones yep this one might look like a normal old creepy clown but it is of course John Wayne Gacy and
then these are a little bit more obvious this is one of the most famous

tattoos

I think on tumblr and I feel like everyone wanted it at some point on tumblr within the true crime community they just went ham over this tattoo and that is of course the Columbine tattoo there's a lot of them believe it or not there's also this one which is so sad like it shows the two shooters dead on the grounds that says best day ever like how would you show that to a family member of the victims or even
Dylan's mom who is very active in talking about her son like so then you get into the straight-up realism portraits of

serial

killer

s just their faces just a picture on the body so I've seen so many in Jeffrey Dahmer I swear he is the most tattooed

serial

killer

that I saw and it's so wild to me like oh my gosh I understand because he is one that I am mostly fascinated in as well because of the details of the crimes are so horrifying not leaving out ladies though no no we got Aileen
Wuornos guys she's also tattooed a lot again this is a famous photo of her very realistic portrait it's no mistaking that is a lien we also have more obscure I guess

killer

s not as known as like Jeffrey Dahmer Charles Manson those kinds you know we have Albert Fish here which again straight up portrait of him just of course this wouldn't be a

serial

killer

tattoo video without a little Charles Manson I mean he is also one of the most tattooed and his I definitely see more of a
stylized thing done with him most of the time and if you thought it couldn't get worse than a realistic tattoo of a

serial

killer

there are whole ass sleeves and back pieces of many many many

killer

s in case one wasn't enough never enough it's one thing I can't even justify one

killer

on your body like that doesn't even make sense to me either but to go so far as to put like all of them all the most famous

serial

killer

s on you you're telling me something with that and
it's not good so why do people do this why do people put

killer

s on their bodies permanently I have a few theories as to why someone would think that this would be okay firstly I think they're just edge lords trying to be cool and to promote their obsession with the macabre and horror and

serial

killer

true crime content things like that but let me ask you who doesn't like true crimes nowadays like we get it you like true crime it does not make you more unique or cooler than other
people because you have a

serial

killer

tattoo know it may get you attention so maybe that's the motive another reason why I feel like people think that this is just okay to do and like cool to do is because we're just so far removed from the details and the crimes themselves because they happened so long ago that we're just disconnected from them we may know all the gory details still but because it didn't happen right in front of us it's not recent we're just
disconnected from all of that altogether maybe some of these people would have liked to be face to face up close and personal with the McCobb details but I have a feeling that most people would not be able to handle the gory details in real life if it was right in front of their face or under their nose shall I say I just want to add that I don't really blame the tattoo artist so much because they are doing a job it is not their creative direction some of it actually is I think but generally
they're just being asked to do this and of course there are certain

tattoos

that I think should be turned down you know anything I'm not gonna get into it but they're just some

tattoos

that you just don't want to do right you don't wanna be associated with and I feel like there is less of a standard I guess when it comes to

serial

killer

tattoos

I mean there's one that I found on the cut up body like they're they just go all out most of the time like they don't
care some of them seem a little hesitant in posting some of these photos which I admire I'm glad that they feel like there is a little bit of a weirdness in getting a

serial

killer

tattoo but generally I don't want to blame the artist but yes they could have turned him away and turned them down but they still would have gotten it somewhere else someone else would have done it so I don't I blamed the person wanting it on their body plus it's going on them permanently it's not
going on the artist permanently you know so to summarise why I think this is so bad is because it promotes killing and you can say that it doesn't but it 100% does because it glorifies these people who committed these crimes and it shows other people hey maybe I'll be memorialized on people's bodies or on a shirt or people will know my name because I can guarantee you we know the names of the

killer

s way more often times than we know the names of the victims and that to me seems
backwards and it's promoting the wrong idea that killing is something that will get you Fame you'll be known forever in history and that is a motivator for a lot of school shooters specifically they're very open about that they want a girlfriend from it or they want Fame and they want their face on the news and so I think it's important that we stop giving them all the credit for these horrible things stop putting them on a shirt stop putting them on their team you know on the TV
stop putting their faces up stop putting them on your walls don't have artwork of

serial

killer

s and definitely do not do not get a tattoo of them ultimately people are gonna do what they want to do so my voice is not going to do anything I just wanted to bring awareness to this issue because I feel like they're just becoming more and more popular as you know people are getting more and more

tattoos

of

killer

s and it's just confusing to me and I think it's just wrong but again
it's just my opinion if you have one you do you I don't like it but you're gonna do whatever you wanted to so my opinion does not matter let me know your thoughts about all of this down below I still get sent constantly merch of things as far as

serial

killer

s go and glamour icing and romanticizing

killer

s so if you want like another video kind of like this on commentary about merch or something please let me know down below I hope you enjoyed and I'll talk to you soon bye you
