Icarus...I understand and thanks for being so gracious in disagreeing.
It is difficult for me to accept tattoos. I was raised listening to grandparents, parents and all uncles and aunts of how much they disliked tattoos and how they had a low impression of those that dear to have one. My kids heard me all their life describing tattoos as disgusting. I realize that time has changed...but still I cannot accept them.
Recently attended a graduation, I saw this gorgeous girl in the stands talking with other parents, she was wearing a beautiful summer dress, when she turned around she has that enormous turtle tattooed in her back. I almost fainted...while thinking of why in the world she has to damage her back...the only think I was concluding from her great suntan was that she liked the beach, but who knows. Accept my apologies if I offended any one reading this post.
