Toowoomba ladies proud of their ink
WHEN it comes to tattoos, Toowoomba's Anita Reid is loud and proud of her love for body art.
Ms Reid is one of many Toowoomba women outraged by comments made on morning television which suggested women with tattoos were unattractive.
The Hot as Hell tattooist said she couldn't believe her ears when she first heard the statement.
"It was absolutely out of line to say such a thing on a widely watched show," Ms Reid said.
"More women than before have decided to get tattoos and it takes real confidence to be proud of your body like that.
"It was a horrible statement and definitely could be seen as a form of bullying."
Melanie Lovell was another Toowoomba woman proud of her ink.
"Tattoos are a way of expression," Ms Lovell said.
"It is just another form of art."
