Great Tattoo Idea

  1. I hope that's just done in regular ink and not permanent. If it's the latter, I'm wondering what it's supposed to represent? Support for Man U. (or Liverpool)???

    I worked in a liquor store part time while I went back to school some years ago and I had a nice guy, a regular customer, who was a biker and had lots of tats. He came in one day w/ a bandage on his forearm and I asked him if he had laid his bike over. "Nah." he said. "I'm just protecting this.", peeling back the edge of the bandage to show me a new tattoo. "I did ruin this one." he explained, pointing to another tat on the other arm. "I knocked off the scab while it was healing and it nearly ruined it." I peered closer of the tattoo of the buxom, naked woman and sure 'nuff, there was a scar right where....well, let's just say it was in a place that really should have been censored for mixed company or children to view.

    "Always been fascinated by tats." I informed the guy. "But I don't have any, don't reckon I ever will." "Why's that?" he queried. "Well...." I hesitated on telling the truth. "My momma would have a fit." deciding to 'fess up. He just laughed and said he regretted a few, like the naked woman.

    "What I never could understand," I went on. "Are the idiots who get a tattoo of a marijuana leaf. I mean...I've smoked a lot of pot, but that just is one of the dumbest things." I declared. "You might just as well have 'I SMOKE DOPE' tattooed across your forehead!"

    "Like this?" he said, rolling up a sleeve to show me a pot leaf on the top of his bicep. Uh oh, the guy was nice, but he was bigger and most likely a better fighter than me. I guess he saw the flicker of worry in my eyes. "Don't worry. " he assured me. "I've wished a million times I hadn't got that one, either." He went on to explain that he was often stopped and hassled by the cops b/c of it, searched even when he didn't have anything on him.

    "My mom hates my tats, too." he confided. "Esp. the pot leaf."

    1. The guy took it well :) This one I'm not sure if it's a pair of braces or bacon :)

  2. If that's is grease paint in his hair (right side stripe) I am an iota less concerned for humanity.
