Heh, found this on the web. It's funny, but true.
Tatoos, once the territory of sailors, longshoremen, and common thugs have now gone mainstream and are quite fashionable. Back in the 70s when I was in the Navy, a lot of guys got the "Zig-Zag Man" tatooed on their forearm. I often wonder how many of them, on the golf course with clients think "hmmm, not the best decision I've ever made". Me? I never got one and have never regretted that decision.
I did get my ear pierced, but if I ever tire of it, the little hole will grow back. Tatoos? They're forever. Have you ever seen an old guy with a tatoo he got when he was in the service that, over the decades, turned into an indistinguishable blob that looks like a bad birthmark? That's you in 30-40 years; think about it.
