Tattoos - whatcha got?

No tattoos for me, allows me to buy more guns that are far more practical than a tattoo…

Also, I fear my skin condition would destroy it anyways.

This is the final result after a scrape and scab. This has not healed past what is pictured for the last couple months.

My friend, don’t get cats then. And especially don’t let them ‘nap on your lap.’
Their claws - as you can imagine - are designed to carry bio-contam, and they’re, well, “skittish as cats!”
Last, since I’ve turned 60, it seems wound healing on the top of my calves has run down to 1/3rd as effective as it was before.

I think, if I got one, it would be this: " Revelation 19:11
“And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.”

I used to feel the same way about tattoos, my Dad and some uncles had them. I was pretty much the only guy in the band when I played guitar in metal bands without a tattoo.

I got mine when I found something that had meaning and was I guess was spiritual in a manner for me.

I got you Ken. Even when I was in the Army 18 years service 1968-1986. Tattoos, I guess it’s known as body art nowadays, there was nothing allowed past where you could see skin. Khaki uniforms were short sleeves for summer and tattoos were not allowed past cloth on the khaki shirt.

I have no tattoos. Zero.

Every time I was even remotely tempted, I just imagined what it would look like when I was eighty years old.

I don’t have any tats either. But man these young dudes seem to like their women tatted up. Both my daughter in laws have them (discrete.) They are grammar school teachers. Must be a generational thing by golly. What were the whipper snappers thinking?

And also I was in catholic school all the way through; and used to get beaten on the head that tattoos are of the devil. I guess I’m just not interested. Even back then we were convinced if we were watching Elvis Presley were on our way to hell. If you watched him on TV or bought his 45’s you had to tell the priest that in the confession so you could be absolved of your sin. (55+ years later) my oh my how things have changed

Catholic school? Dominus vobiscum. Omnia saecula saculorum. Et cum spiritu tu tuo et spiritu Santos. I figure we both were around when the mass was in latin. And remember the Legion of Decency? My very Catholic mother would check the Legion’s movie ratings before allowing me to go see one.

Oh yeah Bulldog! I started grade school in 1954, went to catholic high school 1963-1967 run by Jesuit priest boys only, who would pound you if you screwed up. Now it’s boys and girls. I don’t know what exactly they do now if they hit kids or not.
College with Marist brothers. I remember the prayers we had to pray for our class to cough up a priest from the class.?!!
There was one he became a Franciscan priest. US Army after that Land of the little people. So there you are sir! Happy Weekend

As my childhood friend would say to get me to laugh like kids as we were kids,

I was thinking a “W” on each butt cheek" It could be seen as wow or mom when you bent over!:rofl::rofl::rofl:

Sounds good bro!

Please do!

Catholic school kindergarten through high school. High School was ran by Holy Cross Brothers. Same order as at University of Notre Dame. And yes I got punched in the side of the head and knocked tp the floor from my desk when a Brother snuck up on me while talking in Class. It taught me an important lesson. Don’t get caught.

We have lots of similarities there Sir! Happy Weekend to you and your family

I hope this is in accordance with our community standards @LordDeinonychus
At 80ish that tattoo would be looking like maybe a large butt pressed up against a living room window looking out.
