1. Getting a tat on your face will pretty much bring your job possibilities down to either trashman or wwe wrestler...or apparently a webcam hooker.

2. NO GUY can rock a trampstamp and not immediately lose all rights to carry his dude card and also look like he would be traded for a pack of cigarettes if he were in jail. Just say no.

    So you're saying I shouldn't get "BITE ME" tatted on my forehead?

    As for the tramp stamp, I always called them the target.

        no, there's a guy at work, kind of small guy...feminish. With a big flowery trampstamp on his lower back. I've already called the Man Authorities, they are on their way to revoke his dude card.

          Maybe it was one drunken night and a mistake. Tattoos are extremely hard to remove, and are very painful to remove as well...also they are expensive to remove. Maybe it's also sentimental....

          God, maybe the guy's kid died or something, and the flowers were her favorite sort of thing, and maybe she always wanted that tattoo...but died of cancer before she could get it, so he got it in her memory! :rolleyes:


          Or maybe it was a botched tattoo and he asked for something else, and ended up with that thing, and now it looks like flowers, and maybe it was supposed to be a dragon or something.


          Never know. But my imagination runs deep


          But how about NO tattoos?

    Coupla questions.

    1) Forgive my ignorance but what exactly is a "trampstamp"?

    2)
    With a big flowery trampstamp on his lower back
    The lower back would be somewhere adjacent to the buttocks wouldn't it? The question is how do ya know he has a tatt there?

      Must wear short shirts and low-rising pants? "tramp-stamps" are the meaningless tattoos attributed to women who have them placed directly on their lower back, but also attributed as a stereotype for low-quality women. These tattoos are usually just a bunch of squiggly lines, or as mentioned, some flowers....basically a design on the lower back just before the buttocks.

        Considering the number of people getting themselves covered with tattoos I'm investing every spare cent in stocks for tattoo removal companies:p

        Funniest woman I've seen with tattos was severely overwieght and was showing me her various tattoos (no, I didn't ask - she just liked to discuss them). She kept saying how she thought they looked so "good" - looking good would require loss of about 200 lbs. in my opinion.

        But if she did lose weight those tattoos she had would be too big for the space...odd.

        Cool.

        Your dude credentials are intact, as for him, I doubt whether he'd be worth a packet of cigarettes.

        Maybe a couple of butts (pun intended).

        Give him a wink, then blow him a little kiss, that should unsettle him for a few days.

          I already started calling him 'puddin' and 'sugar'. Im about a foot taller than him and easily outweigh him by about 90lbs. He's looking nervous around me

      I heard some comedians joke the other day - he said something like "So Mike Tyson isn't scary enough, he has to get a tattoo on his face?
      Well to scare people, I am going to get a tattoo on my face of Mike Tyson"

        Now, I do have a Japanese kanji symbolizing destiny. It was the closest thing to "fate" that a kanji represents. Both my husband and I have them on our right shoulders, because fate was and is a constant in our relationship. Our son's middle name is Fate as well.

    I have 1 tat, it means nothing to anyone but me unless you are into asian lore, no its not a kanji symbol. But I also have it placed so that nobody can really see it unless i'm wearing a muscle shirt, and even then you can only see hints of a tattoo.

    Tats shoud mean something to the person in my opinion. You are marking your body, probably for life, it better be something more than just a way to be different like everyone else at the gym.

    The only men who should have tramp stamps may be plumbers - would add a bit of interest to the standard view.

    One of my high school history teachers (who often told us many stories of his pre-teaching years) was drunk with friends one night and asked this guy at a party to give him a tattoo. It was supposed to say "Persevering Warrior" (or something along those lines) in Mandarin Chinese. Only after everything was said and done, though, did he discover that that guy had tattooed "MONKEY ASS" on his arm... pointed out by a friend who spoke Mandarin. He said he was just glad he could cover it with sleeves, and that it just added to his many great stories...

    Maybe a good rule of thumb would be to KNOW THE LANGUAGE if you get a tattoo in another language? >

      I only have one on my forearm. I got it in Tijuana in 1964 it says "USMC" never had a desire for another until I read about the kid with the lower back tattoo sounds kind of cute. I'll think about it... Nah, I believe I'll pass this time.
