Just give me my $0.29 Bic

I'll take my ink in a different form, thank you very much. Several thousand spent, and several thousand more to go. Yes, this is what my adoring husband considers important. I'm not a tattoo person, but whatever. At least it gives me mucho leverage in a variety of financial situations.

Misty - You knew I'd be able to get these photos. What the hell were you thinking when you turned it into a monetary challenge?

Once upon a time when I swam for a living, I briefly entertained the idea of getting a tiny little tattoo in some inconspicuous place, like my ankle. Then it dawned on me that you needed serious needle action to make a tattoo. End of that idea.

Wow--I've never wanted a tattoo, but just in case, remind me not to take a wad of cash or a credit card into any tattoo parlor I happen to stray into...

Damn! Those look like they would've hurt, they're huge!

When I was younger I played with the idea of getting a small yellowrose in a area only my hubby would see...I am so glad I didn' all things tend to fall due to gravity as we age and the rose just wouldn't be so pretty now! ;)

Those are some impressive tats! Here via Michele's today!

I've heard the ones over the kidney area on the back hurt the worst and he has one there! He must be tough. I'll want one then chicken out. I wanted one for my 40th birthday on my lower back but who knows. I admire the old timers but now every girl at the pool has a butterfly or something...I don't want to look like I am trying to be young, I wanted to prove I could be brave.

Hi there - Michele sent me. Great site and some fun stories. Agree... the bathroom thing is gross. In Asia many cultures prefer squatting on "squatters" and you'll find both types of toilets in washrooms: squatters and a regular toilet. But what is really creepy, is when you walk into the public bathroom of a five star hotel to find two big black shoe prints on the toilet seat.

Good job on getting the pics of the tats. They are coming along nicely.

I will have to think of a creative way to pay you the $30.00.

Deana - the kidney area hurts like shit!!! The skin is looser there - it almost made me throw up and pas out when mine was done there.

OK, I'm just gonna come right out and ask. If you're not a tattoo kinda person, doesn't it turn you off to be sleeping with an art project? Just wondering.

Michele sent me.

Actually each time he gets a new tattoo, it's like sleeping with a new guy.

Seriously, I like tattoos on other people, I just don't like them on me.

i'm not into that tattoo thing, that looks like it would have taken forever to have done, ouch!

I'm not a tattoo person myself but those are impressive and beautiful.

I've thought about it and yes the pain is one deterant. The other is picturing myself at 80 with a set of saggy boobs and a saggy ass. Someone will ask to see the tat and I would have to lift something to show them. ha ha!

I was reading the blood donation literature recently, and the rules in Canada are definitely tough on artistically inclined folks: you can't donate for 12 months after you've gotten a tattoo.

Oh well. That settles that, I guess.
