For three days, I can't speak to my son. I can hardly bear to look at him.
I have a lump in my throat that stops me from eating. I feel as if someone has died. I keep thinking of his skin, his precious skin, inked like a pig carcass.
She once said to my sister she'd rather she got pregnant than got a tattoo.
It's artistically necessary I get sleeves to spite her.
The author's implied ownership of her adult son's flesh is nauseating.
it's not even a subculture. Not even remotely. Loads of people do it. My favourite ones are the girls that get flower tattoos on their feet; why get such a shit tattoo on such a shit place and not even be able to see it? 'I really want a tattoo but not a dangerous looking one, put a shit looking one where nobody can see it please and I'll pay you A FUCKLOAD OF MONEY'. Being a tatooist must be an alright job.
But yeah I've some horrible tattoos in my time. And I think people are too embarassed to admit they just got permamently marked by someone that couldn't draw because they're always like 'look at my awesome new tat' when it's an awful squiggly stick figure mess.
Frank Turner keeps a big gallery of fans lyric/album artwork tattoos on his facebook page.

get upset about things that may be "insensitive" to the victims of things in the news, but maybe the woman who wrote this could cast her gaze in the direction of the Sharp family and get a grip.
She doesn't know I have any, despite having six. She probably wonders why I always wear long sleeves when I go to visit.
imagine that was your mum! I don't think I'd be able to stop myself going out and getting a full on maori job across my entire face just to fuck her off.
you may think she's over the top, but they edited out the bit when he tells her the tattoo is all of the lyrics to 'Sir Psycho Sexy' by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
