Confidential to JJ:



His tattoo is kind of like this, only on the shoulder.

Wow. That is amazing. And though I loathe tattoos in any form, this one is compellingly handsome and artful. And must have been memorably painful.

Wait until all that black ink fades to dead blue-green.

I love tattoo sleeves. On either gender. Mmmm.

It scares the crap out of me.

I'm wondering if they had chosen the tummy that wood be mush less glamour

Oh. My. Goodness. Can you imagine what these people are going to look like in 20-30 years? Look at Grandpa's military tattoos for a clue.

Tattoos are such a failure of imagination--these people can't imagine that their lives will be any different than they are right at this moment. They are locking themselves into boxes that may be impossible to get out of. Those of us who have been around a while only have to look at pictures of ourselves with our really-cool hair circa 1986 and all is known.

I think that is fucking disgusting. It looks like a skinned rabbit in a Chinatown window.

Bring back the decor in decorno! I don't want to read about tattoos or acid trips.

Eh...I think tattoos are generally super hot on people as long as they suit them, but this one totally doesn't do it for me. I agree that it won't be nearly as impressive after it fades, which doesn't take that long.

I do think, however, that JJ's would be just fine since it's not his whole arm like this. I like sleeves that are not just one thing.

The commenters here were so much better in the early days.

At first I thought this post was going to be about "color combinations in the butcher shop" or "why texture is important!" until I realized that odd looking thing was a human arm.

Damn.

Anon 7:19, AMEN. I'm so over the tattoos. And the Betty Page bangs and the cherry hair clips and the tacklebox faces. Yuck.

I am all about a sexy guy (or girl!) with a sleeve, but this really ain't my style. I'm just a little too squeamish...

"...these people?" "...failure of imagination". Wow. Lighten up cupcake, it's not your skin.
