Oh look, another journalist who hates tattoos.
Tattoos on men… Well, I guess that is a manly thing. Popeye and other sailors have tattoos. So do motorcycle gang members. Wrestlers. My neighbours. Convicts. And David Beckham (sigh).
But tattoos on women. I hate them.
Right up there with Botoxed plasticized foreheads and Rocky Balboa lips. I am not sure what I dislike more.
A blur of black ink and colour on taut, youthful skin. Angel wings sprouting on shoulders and snakes crawling up thighs. Celtic crosses and names of loved ones written along one’s arm. Roses crawling up ankles and “tramp stamps” peering down buttocks.
I hate them all.
