OLD FASHIONED TECHNOLOGY

I sent this picture to one of my granddaughters the other day.  She's a very intelligent girl who has a degree in International Studies after spending several years at a University in Israel.  But she's never used it and works now as a prison guard.  Well she says they're called corrections officers now but she still works in a state prison and carries a gun.  But her other job, which is self taught (I should have mentioned that she has the family gene for artistic prowess) is that as a tattoo artist.  So, as I said much earlier, I sent her this picture recently.


Being blessed also with a great sense of humor, she responded with a laugh and said she'd have to find one and put her own label on it.  She said she had one client who got a wedding band tattoo when he got married, then had it lasered off when he got divorced four months later.  Now he's asking her about a new tat for his new wife-to-be.  She said it reminded her of this Norman Rockwell painting.


She said those guys who constantly change their minds, as well as their wives or girlfriends, are great for business!

  1. I don't have any tattoos, but I've always heard that putting your significant other's name on you permanently meant your relationship would be anything BUT permanent. Why tempt fate? ;)

  2. I know a guy from my sailing days who has a very cool tattoo. He and his wife sailed around the world over a period on 5 years and every country they visited is represented by a tiny flag done as a band around his left arm, his wife has the same only on her ankle. 21 countries each. It tells their story.
    BTW, our German Shepard has a litter tattoo.

  3. I love the idea of tattoos but I've never seen one that I thought would look good enough to carry with me for the rest of my life. Fun picture and I always enjoy Norman Rockwell.

  4. Always wondered what happens when the skin sags, does the design implode?

  5. Tom - I'm afraid it does. Christy has way too many tattoos herself and her grandmother has tried to warn her about them, to no avail.

  7. Ouch ouch ouch! Getting a tattoo just sounds so painful - and then to use a GRATER to get it off... I've covered my eyes now & I'm backing away slowly... Heh.

  8. No tatts here, but my daughter has several, (to my horror at the time)& Honey has a tatt in her ear to signify she is desexed!
