Oh, enough about unfunded mandates, taxes and deficits....A survey shows one in four Americans age 18 to 50 now have at least one tattoo...That compares to less than ten percent in 1936......I guess they don't do such surveys very often.
The photos from Alex Bay of Polar Dipper Extraordinaire Brittnee reveals numerous tattoos. As the summer approaches, it seems just about every young lady has a "butt cap"...also called a "tramp stamp". Thats the body art at the base of the back...hence the term butt cap which is the official term...Dr. Strange told me so.
I swim against the tide on this one...I understand the artistry and really good work is interesting, but mostly its a call for attention and detracts from the human body. I can imagine how galling many parents find it to have their 17 year old daughter come home with a butt cap...especially when they hear it referred to as a tramp stamp...
Of course with so many getting tattoos, body art may not rightly be associated with loose morals, as it once was....On the other hand, it could be there are looser morals as well.
In any event, tattoos are in and show no sign of fading soon..Although as you get older they may droop a little.
