Even though I would never get a tattoo myself, and I wouldn't want one on my hubby (tats don't really do it for me, if you know what I mean), I never fail to appreciate some of the excellent art work I see on others. Maybe it is the artist in me, but some of those tattoo artists are really talented.
But I also know bad ones when I see them... or rather "bad idea" tats. I actually saw one today.
I was nosing around on one of the Military Spouse forums, I don't comment much, but I like to see some of the news and things going on in the military world, and I came across a post where one Army wife was bragging up her hubby's new tattoo. My curiosity got the better of me and I had to take a looksie. This is what he had tattooed on his chest:
"What do you think about this Tattoo, Sweetie?"
"Hmmmm...." He said trying to be nice about the guy's issue. "Well, he can always get a bigger one over the top in the shape of the Specialist Insignia when or if he gets promoted..."
"Well, he could always go airborne and make it into a parachute...." I have such a clever husband...
Just in case, this soldier wises up and realizes that a promotion in the future is possible, and may google how to hide a PCF tat, and comes upon my page, I have created some examples to save him:
