Welcome to Rudan Thursdays where we talk about…things! Anything from books and movies, to blog posts and authors, to food and drink ~ and everything in between!
My Aunt, a.k.a. Super-Snoop, snitched to my dearest Granny my desire and intention to get inked.
This, of course, sparked a huge debate between them, myself, and my dad (who, being a navy veteran, has tats himself).
My Granny was horrified…my Aunt gleeful that she got me in trouble…and my dad did his parental duty by telling me not to get them – then proceeded to share stories of how he’d gotten his own art.
None had any viable reason against getting tattoos, other than telling me repeatedly not to get a “tramp stamp.” My admonition that I am a grown woman – in my thirties – and can do what I like with my body fell on deaf ears.
So, in honor of my uninformed and unimaginative family – whom I love with all of my heart – I offer this documentary from the History Channel: Ancient Ink.
You watching, Auntie?
So talk to me. What is your opinion on tattoos? How do you express yourself?
