Want a little light where the sun don't shine?;)

I love mine, but I wouldn't get another. I think on women it's harder to get them in places that will still look femenine and still look good after you have kids. I was thinking of getting mine removed, but being on the small of my back I hardly see it.

I felt so sorry for her because she WAS beautiful and probably had no idea that she had destroyed her otherwise beautiful face.


Hmm......I hate to resort to using a cliche' but isn't beauty in the eye of the beholder?? ;)

was it on her face or her neck? ;)

I saw a drag rat with his face completely covered in tats- I just hope my kids don't do that.

Have a few from my Marine Corps days, including the obligatory Eagle, Globe, and Anchor.

I'll bite. What's a drag rat? A male rat that likes ball gowns?

EG - Would you rather we talk about piercings? Where's Mary Poppins when I need her! ;)

I have a small tattoo on my laft shoulder blade, it is an arabic symbol that supposedly means "our way towards a new begining" I got it when I was 18. I want several more, but can't decide where to put them, and I want someone to design them for me because I have certain things that I want.

Photoshop Challenge

Photoshop Challenge:

Someone posts a picture of themselves with their sleeve up. Photoshoppers give that person a tattoo.

No, I will not be that person.

"Drag rat" is the local term for the "homeless" kids that are pseudo hippy/punk that hang out on "the drag"- otherwise known as Guadalupe in Austin, right along UT.

I say "homeless" because I have seen a drag rat or two get into fights with their parents when they pull up in their red BMW begging their little precious Tommy to come back home.

Tattooing and tattoos fascinate me. But I won't be getting any any time soon. There are 3 reasons 1) scared of pain (but not too scared), 2) high probablility that i am allergic to many of the inks 3) religious (recently found this one out).

I had planned on getting my legs done next summer and had a description prepared and an estimate done for the tattoos I wanted done.

That is great, I am ROTFLMAO.

As for me, I cant even listen to the same music from week to week, so I could only imagine if I got a tattoo.

So, no. But I think they are cool on others.

I've seen it before on Cyburbia but cannot work out what ROTFLMAO means. Can you advise please?

Short for:

Rolling On The Floor Laughing My A$$ Off

(And derivations thereof)

EDIT: Actually I had totally forgotten about the Bea Arthur "Golden Girls Gone Wild" that I posted until I re-read this thread. Funny as all get out.

Update: I'm still waiting for that third ink. Havent quite had the motivation yet. Maybe this weekend when I go visit the college roommate I havent seen or talked to in 12 years....

Thanks to Chet and Huston for letting me in on ROTFLMAO. I feel foolish now for not having been able to work it out for myself (not).

Not a problem, we all have our "board issues". ;)

Mine is El Guapo's intolerance of Harley Davidson's LOUD PIPES SAVES LIVES campaign!

<POKE!>

BTW - I cant wait to email him *.wav files this Labor Day Weekend... :)

Thought I was being clever by thinking of a tattoo thread. But then I did a search and realized is was already done. See, I listen to the mods. Anyway, if I were to get a tattoo, I'd probably do something with my boys' nicknames on my arm or upper back. They mean the world to me. I think tats can be tasteful or awful. For example, there is something about a tat on a womans lower back that is just perfect.

Of course some can look terrible. I knew guy who had a rolled up bandanna tattooed across his forhead so it made it look like he was wearing one. He committed suicide a few years later. Don't know if it was related.

Nope, no ink. In the excessively conservative family I grew up in, I was married, had an 18 month old, and was living in a foriegn country before I dared to be wild and crazy enough to get peirced ears.

And now I know I am allergic to a zillion things and have a compromised immune system, so it will never happen.
