Rub It !!!

I think that there are a lot of cool tattoos out there...but on the same note, I now wish that I did not have any. I went through a phase (if you can call a 5 year span a phase) where I thought that tattoos were the ultimate in cool.

To me, they said something about the person who's skin they wove themselves into. I could tell a little soomething about people by their tattoos (biker, neo nazzi, gang member, ex-con, mamma's boy, etc.)





Then again...as things are today...you can't tell if it says something about the person or if it says something about who the person wants to be...or


if they are just doing it cuz someone else did it.


I don't mind the folks that 'ink up' because it is something internally meaningful to them...but it is the people who get tattoos like they are jewelry (or make up) that kill me. I know that I have three tats, but they are all concealable (unless I am at the beach...or getting down to business.) You would not know that I had any if I have a t-shirt on.


I have seen some sexy as shit tats...have seen some on guys that look really good...and have seen some that are absolutely FUCKED!!!!






And even with all of that...Look what I have done to myself











This does not rub off?!
Each of my tattoos does mean something to me...but I do have MANY days when I wish that I never got any...or some freaky scientist would come up with some "Tat-Be-Gone" lotion and you could just ...rub it off.

I could make a comment about the one on your back, but I am a married woman of virtue.
So, I'll just leave it at, I like it.

Yes - sexy Dad!

But you bring up an important point that I believe goes throughout society - not thinking. Don't get me wrong I can be spontaneous, but let's think a little. As you said you thought about what you were doing and what you were going to permanently put on your body.

A major problem with our society is not thinking, not thinking of permanently marking your body and the consequences down the line. Our short term thinking is crippling us as a nation and injuring our children. Enough ranting from me.

I'll bet the guy with the revolver on his head thinks he is being discriminated against when he doesn't do so well in inteviews for management positions.

I know of a few people that feel the same way. Tattoo's can be extremely beautiful and artistic, but when it's put on your body it is extremely permanent. And what you may love when you're 20 or 30 definitely changes when you are 40 or 50 or 60.

But then... like I said and you said... some of them are pretty cool.

I went through a 'phase' too damnit! I ended up with 7 fucking tattoos and only 2 that I wouldn't get rid of!!!

I posted about this a few moths ago!

You have a set of brass ones dude! I want to post on tats so badly, but I'm afraid I'll lose readers!!! I have many who are inked UP!

Congrats on the cojones!

I JUST got mine. I am 36 (almost 37) I could not have made this decision before. I would have something ridiculous like Winnie the Pooh on my leg, and I am serious, that is exactly what would be on there. Thank God I waited.

I agree, you can not make a life long decision when you are younger, because hopefully you change.

That gun tat is scary. I'm not a tattoo fanatic, but I do appreciate artistic ones. Did you see the guy on The Bachelorette who got a tat to impress the girl? (I don't watch that show, but my son roped me into an episode... http://dadshouseblog.com/2010/06/22/the-bachelorette/ )

I love tatts on guys. It is sexy as hell. I want another one, but it has to mean something to me. I have been researching lately.

I am glad I got my two (tiny ones) where you can't see them. Only for BF's viewing pleasure.
