Hi guys in this blog I will share my perspective on modern society and the coronavirus pandemic.
From the very beginning I've been very skeptical about all this as I don't believe a single word that any government reports to his people. I do not belong to a part of society that governments respect or look up to, a lot of the time governments will look down on people like me and the way I live. Tattooists in general are not seen as respectable people from corporate companies and government officials. And i like it that way, I wouldn't want it any other way. Any other way would be to mainstream tattooing even more than already is and commercialize even more than already has happened in the last 5 years. Anyways. Some people choose to commercialize there shops and create chain shops which in my opinion only leads to shit tattoo trends and more people coming into this industry without having the right level of passion that is needed to push this industry forward and progress the art form. As well as only brings more people into the industry who are just focused on making money. Anyways, I'll get to my main point in a minute haha.
So society in the middle of this so called "pandemic". All I see is fear now. I never saw it in the first month this was going on. And ill be honest there were times in the beginning of this lockdown last march 2020 that I was scared, scared for myself and others. You no thinking about finances and I was asking the question like many people probably were of how will I survive this etc. But now its a different story. I mean I'm going to be honest I've never agreed with governments about any decisions as I do not believe in corruption and they all make decisions based around money and power. Like that saying goes, it doesn't matter who you vote for the government still gets in. All parties are just different shades of the same grey. But now since 5th November 2020 when England went into its second lockdown I see straight through the governments intentions. As I say there will be some people out there who are reading this who get offended or will disagree with me and that's ok because this is my perspective on it. As you all probably sense and have seen with your own eyes from news and paper articles that the government is trying ways to control the society using fear and most of the time they are winning. A part of me is like why the fuck have i stopped working, I don't believe in any of the things they told our country and in fact the whole world in this lockdown. It all seems to me the biggest scandal the world has ever suffered. And i use the word suffering on purpose because the way i feel is, we will never get this time back and as an artist and creative person this brings me much sadness. As probably it does to you too. I believe they have caused a big financial crash so that it crushes or tries to crush all small businesses and starts up so that only the big mighty titans of industry survive, for example, MacDonald's, Microsoft, Starbucks, Nike etc. etc. If they aren't doing this then why does it feel so real? British council workers are going to peoples houses reinstalling and updating peoples boilers without masks and still visiting peoples houses for non essential work and non essential health and safety work you don't have to agree to accept? While we have to stay home and are not allowed to work. What is the difference between a council worker coming to your home to update a boiler (you haven't asked for or need to update as it works fine) and us not being able to work? I mean come on! This screams scandal to me!! They no exactly what they are doing and now they are just seeing if we listen and fall into line.
I do however believe there is a virus. I myself suffered 3-5 days of intense illness at the beginning of this year but I cannot be sure it was corona virus but I witnessed first hand some friends who caught the virus and saw with my own eyes how it effected them so I am in no way cancelling out that this virus is not real. It is real yes but I believe it is only a means to a financial goal they have set for themselves. I'm sure you probably all of heard of the conspiracy's that have gone viral around the internet since this all started so I wont go to far into it because I'm sure you all have watched them. Personally I believe that the American government has some how made the virus, blamed it on china so that they now become the biggest superpower in the world. Its more complicated than that obviously but that is what I sense is happening. To all you Americans who are reading this please don't take offence its not directed at you personally haha. Anyway that's just my opinion. Could be well far off but that's what feels right to me.
So what happens now? Whose to say that if they can lock us down twice what's to say they wont do it again? I mean I'm trying to stay positive of course but jeez you no? You cant help but think what if sometimes. I don't read any news papers or watch the news on tv because its quite clear there taking everyone for a ride. I think everyone is starting to feel like they have been tricked and are starting to wake up. Well people in my orbit anyways. I cant assume everyone feels that way only me and people close to me. I remember at the start of lockdown in march 2020 that when you saw someone walking down the street coming towards you, people would actually cross the road and completely avoid all contact from you and now its quite the opposite. I remember waiting outside a big supermarket for 45 minutes one day to get in and within 5 minutes of being inside someone bumped into me and i was like right ok. So much bullshit haha Will we ever get back to "normal"? whatever normal is? Its hard to say when you've been lied to for so long and you find out secrets from the government that they try to cover up and lie about. Sometimes its hard to stay positive especially when they stop your work and your passion. Of course its easier to give in and accept it but sooner or later I think people will start to stand up more to government and create a revolution or even more rioting if we ever go into a third lockdown. Lets just sit and positively manifest that it never happens again. As I say a lot of you will probably no all about this already, I mean we had 4 months to look it all up haha. In my opinion we are basically living in a fascist society. Being forced into house arrest and all worked stopped over night. Vaccines being made and the threat of making it mandatory for all people to have it. That is fascism! taking away your human rights over night and giving no choice! They give choice and then slowly but surely over time they slowly strip away our rights as human beings. That's how I feel anyways. I never thought I would blog about the pandemic but here we are are. There is one thing i no though and that is that i will point blank refuse to accept any type of Covid 19 vaccine. I do not trust them at all. They can't even lockdown a country in time let along get a vaccine. Plus I don't trust what is in the vaccine enough to take it into my blood stream. Some people might see this as selfish but I ask you to dig deep and put your head down into the rabbits hole and look around and then make your decision first. That's all I'm saying. Nothing against anyone wanting to accept the vaccine? It's just not for me.
I hope you all are staying as positive as you can and more importantly as creative as you can and hopefully we will all survive this prison term together.
Never stop dreaming
All the love
