    Two things I have seen this week have slightly taken me aback and wondered how the residents of this country are happy to have the most slovenly appearance of just about any western EU country.

    First example was in Asda, when I saw a boy of about 8 years old wandering around dressed in pyjamas, dressing gown and slippers.

    Next was when I went to the cashiers at my local Lloyds bank. The young female cashier had one arm completely covered in tattoos that looked like a sleeve of hideous graffiti. Some policemen also appear to sport this ugly form of 'expression'.

    How have standards slipped so far, so quickly?

    To an extent I agree with you about tattoos. I do not like to see tattoos on anybody especially as they get older and their skin starts to wrinkle. I think tatoos on women look awful and those "sleeves" in my opinion are intimidating. But then that is what young people want. They want tattoos and they want to look intimidating. I suppose that in my younger days we had fashions and fads that annoyed our parents although in my "younger days" I was in the army so I didn't have much chance to follow fashion. I have to say that I am old and stuck in my ways but I'm afraid that if I was an employer I would not employ them, male or female. Luckily I am not an employer so I do not have to worry about it. I spent 12 years in Her Majesty's Armed Forces and at no point in my career was I tempted to deface my body with a tattoo. Oh yeah I don't like beards either especially on young men. Makes them look 60 or older.

    I totally agree with you about tattoos and have indeed started a similar thread in the past.

    In my view, it is a sign of stupidity - sorry if other posters fall into that catagory - well, not really; you did it.
    It's fashion, and I have no idea how that works or how it works so quickly.
    I mentioned at the time the idiot I saw here - obviously the first day of his holiday, white as paper except a pair of black ankle socks which were tattoos.
    People are indeed sheeple - as JBR used to say.

    Another, I have mentioned before, is despite all the pіss-taking of Kim Jong Un's hair style, even that has become the fashion - unbelievable.
    The same for white people shaving their heads.

    People don't mind being ugly as long as it's fashionable, but it won't always be.

    Hairstyles and clothes..beards /moustache all come in and out of fashion and you can grow your hair shave it beard/ no beard its up to you but once you get tattooed its there for life or very expensive removal... personally don't like them and I find the more tattoos the louder the person( might just be the ones I have met) ... when you go anywhere in Europe I always bump into the tattooed Essex boys who have quite a few drinks and get very loud

    True. But then the whole thing about covering yourself in permanent ink is all about 'look at me' and getting noticed.

    Glad I'm not the only middle-aged fogey on here. :)

    All part of this daft hipster trend. At least with this fashion, they're not permanent - unlike the tattoos.

    Remember beardies 'never cultivate on your face, what grows naturally on your a*se'.

    I have to disagree with that one but if you want to be effeminate, that's quite alright these days. :)

    Nearly all men have beards; some just shave them off for some reason.

    What is it that we cultivate on top of our heads then?

    Hey noseall just looked at your profile picture and above it states " 51 year old from Staffordshire"... sounds like a tinder advert

    Fair enough, that's very illogical and also, if you think about it, shaving is a very strange thing to do.

    Where I live, if you shave & especially if you perfume . . . then you might not be walking normally in the morning.

    Nothing wrong with New Zealanders.

    Nor women with beards

    Some folk have serious problems with anyone who is not like "THEM".

    I find it ironic that "THEY" are usually the ones with the problem !
