      Some party girls fall under the 20/20 Rule……they look hot for roughly 20 seconds at about 20 feet.

      pretty girls all know
      boys like bare, blank, clear girl skin
      a tattoo says: tramp

      Lex you’d be sitting by yourself these days

      Have a lot of girls that work for me and many, many have tattoos, even nice ones

      They just don’t put ’em where you can see ’em unless they want you to

      But I am not a fan of this trend

      Great haiku by the way, awesome post

      Showing my age, I suppose.

      But I can say for sure I dislike the trend, too.

      Kids these days … .

      Little kid sees her,
      Says “Mommy, that lady been
      Coloring herself.”

      In ancient times royalty was accompanied by slave girls with fans. Nowadays it’s a couple of your BFFs to help display your tats.

      It’s a statement, although I’m not sure what’s being said.

      Hair used to be a statement, music, cars, drugs, clothes, all of it was supposed to mean something about the person.

      Most of it was foolish and superficial, but could be outgrown.

      The current fads of tattooing and piercing are more of the same, but some of them are going to last for a very long, and I will bet embarrassing, amount of time.

      Jonathan – actually the friends were good friends. Originally the woman was going to reveal the complete tattoo which I was informed went “all the way down” but the friends talked her out of it. It wasn’t the answer I was looking for anyway.

      Veryretired – every time I see someone with a giant tattoo I wonder what it will look like when they are 70. That is why I don’t have any.

      tattoos don’t gross me out anymore.
      earlobes stretchin do.
      usually it’s the guys.
      make me nauseous.

    11. Joseph Somsel Says:

      Tattoos can be EARNED…. by warriors. Gaudacanal, Chosin, Khe Shan, USMC, NYFD, Khafji, Fallujah, etc.

      On females, delicate, peekaboo ornamentation, to be revealed in private, can be entertaining.

      As for me, I’ve never been that drunk.

      Can’t wait to see that one when the inevitable back fat kicks in.

      The oldest I’ve ever felt was on an Ann Althouse thread when I wandered into a vigorous discussion of tattoos. I complained that I disliked tattoos due to my experience as a pathology resident rotating through the medical examiner’s office. Autopsies being with an external exam and my main remembrance of that time was counting and labeling tattoos as I began the autopsy.

      They tend not to age well, and you can imagine why I have a sort of negative image.

      That being said, it’s a generational thing. So many younger people have them, they can’t understand why anyone would object. And now you start to see ads for laser removal of old tattoos, etc. Anyway, in the above mentioned thread, one of the younger commenters basically told me to “get over it Grandma,” when I bothered to complain about my experiences with tattoos. I was surprised because usually when I play the “autopsy card,” in a comments section it generally leads to lots of “wow, interesting, please continue.”

      I forgot to add that it was a very funny back and forth in that Althouse thread. Me basically saying, “you know, it’s possible that those things are not going to age well and you will regret it,” versus, “tattoos are beautiful and don’t dump your negative connotations on me.” Too lazy to dig up the thread, but it was instructive.
