Friggin' sucks, but yeah, the guy was a raging racist. You don't even wanna know what he named his cat...

I see what you’re getting at. And his cat's name is easily found from the net. 
However... What do you think, did my client want to get this tattoo because she feels that everything in the USA hundred years ago was peaceful, tolerant and nice, except for HP Lovecraft’s opinions and worldview? Or something else?

World today is quite different. Personally, I think it would be odd, naive and counterproductive try to fit today’s standards, laws and views on people in the past. Because if we do, we are not trying to make the world a better place by moving on, but we would have to make everything right in the history as well:
That means boycotting Einstein and Henry Ford because they were anti-semites, Winston Churchill and Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr because they were both racists, Disney because he had national socialist sympathies, Malcom X because he taught that some people are superior to others based on their skin color, just to name a few. I doubt people are going to stop buing Chanel products because the founder was a nazi spy. 
Obviously we need to trace all the artists that have Lovecraft or Cthulhu mythos in their artwork and tell them that they have made the world a very racist place for people to live in. I need to amputate my client's leg and burn it. And couple of others.

Opinions?

Still got a tattoo of an extreme racist inked on their body, I wouldn't call that anything other than stupidity xP And hell, you while we're at it. But okay boomer, keep on defending racists. You look good doing it ^^

1. Not on my body, I do tattoos for a living.
2. I can come up with many other tattoo ideas that are way more idiotic and completely accepted in the public.
3. Had to look up that "ok boomer", I don't live in the Internet
4. Not defending racists or racism. I don't also seek out and see racism everywhere I look. As some people do.
