Jesus Had Tats!

Jesus Tat

To the lovely reader who wrote to me recently asking what I think of tattoos on the Gen X crowd, all I can say is,

Hey, if tats were good enough for Jesus, they're good enough for PeaceBang!!
That said, if PeaceBang sees one more young lass in low-rider pants sporting one of those Celtic knot designs just above her posterior, she's going to fling her iced decaf latte at the nearest innocent bystander and scream something incoherent about how posting other culture's spiritual symbols above your butt or anywhere else on your person does not make you COOL, it just makes you -- in about sixty years -- another old person with ugly, extremely faded designs on your body. ::::deep, cleansing breath:::::

What about Pogo?

I've had this dream of getting a Pogo tattoo for a while. I've got one image of him where he's sitting on a log, clearly thinking about something.

Similar to this, but not so sad looking...

who has considered the lower back herself as it is the most canvassy part of her.

PeaceBang the tattoo that you are talking about is known either as the "Lame Stain" or the "Tramp Stamp."

One thing to consider:

If you ever think you might have children, please don't think about putting a tatto near the involved areas (for many of us this leaves only the forehead and the bottom of the feet). Let's just say that skin expands, and doesn't go back completely.

I'm glad I withstood that temptation, to get a tattoo in my twenties, because now (just to name one example of a friend) tweety bird would be approaching big bird's size.

On the other hand -
the female half of a clergy couple I know just had a peace sign tattoo put on her shoulder. She says she did it out of exasperation with our current prez, and as a reminder of an enduring Christian value: peace. She's 50.
I think that might be OK.
How about no tattoos before you are old enough - 50?

for those in the tri-state area, I've heard of those tacky lower back tatoos called "jersey plates."

CC, will you LOVE Pogo when you're 80? Will you TOTALLY WANT Pogo there all your lower back's life long? I maketh a stern face at thou.

I'm with you, PB. I've seen some beautiful tats, that are artwork on a person's body representing their most strongly held beliefs - but not a whole lot of people have these. Most have tweety bird (why? why????), a butterfly, a random kanji symbol, their name, etc.

On the bright side, tattoos are great for identifying corpses!

Nooo, CC - don't get that lower back Tattoo! It's sooooooooo played out!

When I see a women under 35 bend over in her low riding jeans and she DOESN'T have a tattoo on her lower back, I'm shocked.

You can always get a messenger bag and iron press Pogo onto the front of it, that way you can have Pogo with you always, but not permanently.

This is somewhat crude but I have heard the lower back tattoo is a signal that the woman is open to having anal sex (ew)!

I'm sure it is just some guy's wishful thinking.
