Amended WORST TATTOO...

I must apologize to the lady with the "cat" tattoo. She has been toppled from the dubious throne of "worst tattoo ever" by a gentleman with his WIFE'S FACE tattooed on his calf. Not only that, but it was a horrible, horrible tattoo. I mean, I met his wife, because we were doing a side-by-side massage, and I collected her from the women's spa for my male colleague, Jarvis. So obviously I got a good look at her face.

Worst. Likeness. EVAR.

Plus, the tattoo was just of her head, floating like a pumpkin in space, with her name in a ribbon above. No neck, nothing. Awful. I still shudder to think about it.

And, as I believe I've mentioned before, putting your spouse's, lover's, partner's, significant other's name, initials, face, etc. anywhere on your body, permanently, is the kiss of death to the relationship.

Then you're stuck with a painful reminder of something best forgotten.

Bwah ha ha ha! Once again, I postulate.... imagine it in a decade after it has become inky mush.... or if the guy got really fat and the thing stretched!

That's just so awful!

Blondie, I can't imagine it much uglier than it already is.

Tally, definitely!

When I got my first tat [25 yrs ago] the artist gave me some good advice, "NEVER get anyone's name tattooed on your body except your own or your kids'. Those are the only ones that don't change."

Course if you go into Witness Protection, those change,too.

Yeah, but the gubmint will pay for the laser tattoo removal in that case! ;)

I think you're generally correct about that "kiss o' death" thing, Christina.

I forget... did I ever tell you just how close TSMP and I came to getting each other's name tattooed on our asses? REAL close... like in the parking lot of the tat parlor before we turned around.

I really wish we had followed through on that, if only for the fact that her new beloved would have to see MY name during... ahem... certain "intimate" moments. Her name on my butt wouldn't bother me in the least, when ya get right down to it. :D

(sigh) Yet another missed opportunity...

That's 'cuz you're still carrying a torch, Buck! I'd be very unhappy at having MY ex's name tattooed on any portion of my anatomy, I can tell you that!

Phlegmmy, I really am not eloquent enough to express the true horror of the tattoo.
