The Shut Up Legs bit is optional :lol:


I have to admit that this is a very clever design and a nice tattoo, but I'm with Mick F on this one, think carefully for the future. However, having said that - if you were adamant to get a tattoo, then one like this on the calf would be the place to go.

Good Luck!

Why on Earth anyone wants a tattoo is beyond me.

Me too, absolutely, but it is fascinating, and legal, and normal :wink:

Mine was a divorce gift to myself.

My ex was adamantly against them, and felt they were a sort of 'white trash' thing to do. So it was my rebellion against his prejudice.

20 years later, I still like it.

p.s. If I were to get another it would probably be cycling related.

For my 60th I will be getting something piscatorial or piscine.

Sadly nobody will be pisced off by it, which is a shame, since Mrs bfb regards me with mild bemusement already.

Is tattooing normal in the educated well-to-do guardian-reading middle and upper-class classes?

His name was Stan. Came from Abingdon and we were good mates. Sadly, he was electrocuted late one night working on a fault. Ironic really. :cry:

A shortcut has to be a challenge, otherwise it would just be the way. No situation is so dire that panic cannot make it worse.

I do not like the sunny weather but one good thing about it is that people wear fewer clothes and one may see their tattoos
Is it rude to stare?
Not got one yet :wink:

It's a good thing I never asked your permission before getting my 6 tattoos done then.
