If you are ever questioning the power of reality television take one second to consider the Kardashian/Jenner family. Arguably Caitlyn (neé Bruce) is the only one of them to actually accomplish anything; the rest of the clan is famous merely for being famous. While Kim will likely always be at the top of the totem pole, every little thing Kylie Jenner does causes headlines. Hence people getting all excited about a tiny tattoo on her ankle that doesn't really look like anything.
The tattoo, a boring script letter "T," is evidently a tribute to Jenner's boyfriend Tyga. A lowercase t. Are you kidding us? You're dating a dude named Tyga, how could you not think of a way more interesting tattoo to show your affection? If a straight up portrait isn't what Jenner was feeling how about, oh, I don't know, A TIGER?!
Seriously though, shouldn't Jenner at least have the stones to get her lover's entire name as a tattoo? After all, he already has Kylie inked on his arm.
Apparently Jenner got the tiny tattoo a couple of months ago in late November but not a single person noticed. The microscopic tattoo has been hiding in plain sight for weeks. One could have hoped that maybe this was a sign of society finally reaching peak Kardashian fatigue. Perhaps we were in a new society where nobody gave a shit about this gaggle of publicity whores and instead focused their attention on subjects with at least a little substance.
Of course this was nothing but wishful thinking. The real reason that nobody noticed the tattoo was because it was so fucking small, not a cataclysmic rift in how celebrity culture is perceived. Too bad.
Hopefully from now on Jenner will only get tattoos that are completely infinitesimal. If our eyes aren't powerful enough to see the tattoo then we don't need to pretend to care about it. And wouldn't that be nice?
