Why? because I'd cock it up anywhich way I went. My 'cool' would be nerdy. My 'cutting edge' would be sooooo 80s.
I admire some tattoos on some people, but when it comes down to it, I just don't trust myself to make that kind of commitment.
I have two nephews who are pierced and tattooed beyond belief. Though I love them dearly, if I’m being 100 percent honest…..they look just plain awful. Demonic skulls, writhing monsters…and other rotten art decorate arms, legs, heads and other nether regions so…..for me the mere idea of getting inked is too much. I can’t get over that the blonde sweet face I used to kiss goodnight is now a shaved headed walking nightmare of living ‘art’.
I love watching the Tattoo shows on TLC. Miami INK (which I think has been canceled for awhile) and of course Kat Von D's show LA Ink are really fun. I am amazed at Kat's work, although for such a pretty girl.....she just looks so freaking dirty to me. And I'm not talking 'dirty = hot' either.....more like dirty = tetanus and an STD coctail.
Tattoos look great on some guys…hot even, but on other’s not so much. What separates David Becham from Jim Bob? Is it the bank account? Is it the subject matter?
For me, getting a tatt simply would not work right now....I know my limitations. But in the future? I guess the unicorn fucking the dolphin in front of a gay rainbow could happen, when I'm in my 80s.
