To get a tattoo, you need only a fist-full of cash, a friend in the business, or a prison sentence. It takes less than an hour to make a decision that you might regret for the rest of your life. It's right up there with unwanted pregnancies. The only difference is that children can change a person's life in a good way.
So, you think you planned your tattoos. You've got it all figured out. You found something that you think speaks volumes about you. Maybe it's a picture, or an ancient symbol. You tell your friends that "It's Chinese for 'wisdom', and I am wise." Right. It could say Kung Pow Chicken, for all you know. How many truly wise people do you know who are deliberate, thoughtful and also covered with tattoos? None? I thought so.
While you are impatiently awaiting the next post, please enjoy a PSA from Saturday Night Live's commercial parody series.
