The reasons and explanations others have given to not ignore gitignore
should not be ignored :-)

However if you insist, the manual does give options to do what you want

$HOME/.config/git/ignore, $GIT_DIR/info/exclude, .gitignore

The other two will give you what you want ($GIT_DIR is normally just
your .git directory)
