tattoos that made me stop and wonder...

the girl who sat next to me last semester...three greek characters across the inside of her wrist...

the guy going down the stairs in front of me...a butterfly on the back of his neck...

the girl in line in front of me at the bursar's office...a line of writing around the back of her heel...

the lady who works at the front desk at the nursing department...the weird upside-down chinese symbol on the back of her hand...

the guy who sat next to me in photography class (which i got an A in)...a beetle under his earlobe...

Tattoos in general really make me wonder, didn't they realize that this one stupid design will be imprinted on them as long as they live? It's not exactly a ringtone or a desktop wallpaper, this is their skin.

The funniest is when professors make sure that their tattoos are clearly displayed, I assume this is so we can really understand what they're about, and it does help in that regard.

amazing that you remembered all those details.
Congrats on the A in Photography!

You know they have make up that would be tattooed on so that they will be permanent. So long as it serves a purpose I think it looses its negative connotation, although its still not allowed from the Torah.
