I actually found the process of doing them addictive, though I'm not sure why. Maybe it's an endorphin thing?

Ever thought of setting up as a freelance voodoo doll?

So Rod Stewart was unmanned and glued to some horse residue? My God... you're right about the psychiatrists, but I doubt if the 'owner' can ever be cured.

Or possibly Limahl.

Its all personal preference, of course, but I'd never consider it. You only need to watch a televised football match to see the tattoo time bomb awaiting these currently fit young men when they bloat like many of them will. Why you would choose to look like Max Cady, I don't know.

Couldn't agree more. I am appalled when Olympian swimming champions throw off their bath robes and display a body disfigured by tattoos. They are young, handsome, and have seriously uglified themselves. My God, couldn't they have donated that dosh to charity? Narcissists, all of them

They indeed look like Max Cady. Or Queequeg, the aboriginal harpooneer in 'Moby Dick'.

I've never felt any urge to get one. Perhaps if I had done time in prison or the Marines or something, it would seem like something that required it.
With that said, it seems to be all the rage with my generation and, even more so, the succeeding generations. This town is awash in ink. It's quite remarkable.

You're all wrong. It's obviously Gordon Ramsey.

One of my friends had a tattoo at the bottom of her back and it must have affected a couple of sensory nerves........her husband had a very good night ;)

Of course I've thought of getting one at some stage in my life but really glad I didn't. These days having a tattoo is soooooooo cliche. In my day only bikers or sailors had them - not the sweet little 15 year old girl serving in the cafe. The modern world eh? Everyone can do everything all the time so that we're all the same. Ho hum.
