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.

That is why I never got any. I love when it's cool art, or like you said, mean something to them. But I'm horrible with commitment anyway, so a TAT was out of the question! :)

Yea, I have the "tramp stamp"(a flower)..I'm thankful that it's small and can be covered up most of the time!

I have a few I'd like to be rid of too, so if they ever come up with that Tat Be Gone, I'll be one of the first customers.

I have not gotten a tat as of late, but have considered one. Just one!!!!! I definetly have to have one that means something to me.

I have seen some unbelievable tats in my day, though. Don't like the ones that are all tatooed up. One or two is acceptable.

And the guy with the pistol on his shaved head wonders why he can't pass a job interview.

I dig tats, but it's been my experience that average, somewhat fuzzy guys like me should NOT get inked.

Susan said...

I think they're fine on other people.. but I always remember my husband telling me after we first spent the night together that the one thought through his mind was hoping he didn't find a tattoo anywhere while exploring.

But hey, you meet the right person would a tatoo make a difference? HELL NO.

I've been tempted to get a tat in the past but didn't because I always was told I would regret it later by my parents. It is the one thing I took to heart while I rebelled against everything else.

I have so many girlfriends who got tats before they had kids and now regret it. For one, some of the places they got them, the tat is no longer recognizable due to pregnancy stretching everything out, and some had csections making their tat look like some weird kelloid scar.

To each his own. I have seen some really great tats, but they aren't for me.

I have six tattoos and have just recently started to regret some of them. They all mean something to me, but I just feel like I am growing out of them. Not sure what I am going to do about it.

Candice said...

I never did the tat thing. I knew that when I was old and wrinkly, no matter what I got, would look like dogs ass.

Chris Wood said...

Good to see some pictures of people who have to be dumber than me.

Thank you.

Mariah said...

I hate mine, even though it is small I hate it

Betty said...

I have just one. But I like it. It's small it means something and will always bring back great memories. I will get more.

Brandy said...

I have 5...fortunately I only dislike one of them. And not b/c of the tattoo but where it is - my right boob.

Now that I'm older I think it's kinda trashy and there are definitely times I don't want it showing.

Sorry to copy, but you are such a genius I just couldn't help myself. Oh I meant to say Que chupar! {google it!}
