To my mind (as feeble as it is), tattooing your body is one of those things that seem like a good idea when you're young and firm and pretty and plump. Much like styling your hair high enough to hide razor blades in it, or even dieing your hair purple. It's a fad. You're young. You can get away with it and not cause too much harm to yourself or others.
I say each to his own, go for it, let it be and do yo thang! But the next time you sit down to get needled, keep these images in the back of your mind.
Tattoos on old body parts is NOT pretty, people. I would venture that even Angelina Jolee will come to regret her "body-art" one day and realize that her body was already a work of art before she started getting stamped.
Who knows what the next craze will be. I'm thinking branding irons would make a nice statement. What do you think?
