Ink



GOT INK?





Are you inked up like a China Sailor or a Yakuza Gangster - or have you opted for a more discrete tattoo? Maybe just a tramp stamp? Perhaps you are ink-free.

Does the cool tattoo today remain just as interesting as the day you first got it? What does your tattoo say about YOU? Is it fair for us to judge you by the pigment pattern you have drilled into your skin for all time?

Take a look at the video if you're seeking guidance on removing the ink.

  1. Back in '80s England there was always the 'skinhead', usually called 'Chimp' or 'Bugsy' who'd cleverly tattoo a spiderman mask on his face. Foolish.

    Stand against the tattoos! Except perhaps a discrete blood group which might be useful in certain circs.

  2. If you're going to hit the voodoo/vampire clubs or if you're going to join a blood-sucking cult, there is no harm in advertising your blood type and RH factor with ink. It is sort of like a lady tattooing "juicy" to indicate her readiness at all times.

    Call me old fashioned, but in the military, I simply used a dog-tag (one around my neck and one laced into my boot).

  3. I'm too much of a wimp! My friend got a tattoo of a cat's paw on her foot. She's very strong but I know it was extremely painful. Plus, I'm just too fickle. Whatever design I'd get, I'd be sick of within a couple of weeks.

  4. I'm way too chicken to get a tattoo!

    I nearly wrecked my car once. I saw a man sitting on a curb and his entire face was a tattoo. Hell, he can't even get a job at Mickey D's looking like that!

  5. I love how the Pretty Lady tattoo changes to Pretty Sad.

  6. STEPHANIE - you could always add bits to the cat's paw and turn it into a flower, then add this or that as you tired of the old design. The only problem with that is you'll run out of skin surface before you run out of ideas.

  7. I think of the Concentration Camps and any desire for tattoos disappears.

  8. At present it's a fad. A way to look like a rebel. A way to be cool - but it can end up "pretty sad".
