Today’s Topic: Tattoos: Love ’em or leave ’em?
To tattoo or not to tattoo, shouldn’t even be a question. I’ve never, and never will.
What is there, in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD that you are PERMANENTLY PASSIONATE about? Oh, right. Skulls, flowers, mermaids. Um, I like Law and Order. I’ve made the joke I’d do a little sketched R.I.P. Jerry Orbach on my shoulder. But no. It’s PERMANENT. The whole point is the giant, lifelong statement that you adorn yourself with to be individual – just like everyone else.
Well, actually – not lifelong anymore. According to Tattoo Blog, (and they’re even calling it ‘removable permanent’) there is a new microbead ink that will be completely removable in one laser treatment. WTF?
What’s so hardcore about that? It’s like writing on your hand with a pen. Half the fun of tattoos is when you don’t like fairies anymore or you gain 50 lbs. and no one is sure quite what that blob used to be. Now, you can just undo it. Why not tattoo your boyfriend’s name up and down your arms. Break up? Erase it. Start over. No biggie.

She’s lovely. The only good thing about tattoos is LA Ink. Now that’s quality television programming.
