Questions You Should Ask Before Getting a Tattoo
Our beloved phone screener, Joanna Barbacoa, just got her first tattoo on Friday. Of course, she came to me to ask if I had any advice. I told her that there are a few questions everyone should ask themselves before making the decision to get ink done.
"I know I love the band Goatwhore now, but will I still love them as much in 20 years?"
" Are there any UPSIDES to having hepatitis?"
"Does this guy know his tattoo needle doesn't have an auto-correct function?"
" How can I be truly sure that this Chinese symbol doesn't really say 'Szechuan Chicken with Broccoli?'"
" Am I 100% positive that THIS fad is going to be the first one that stays cool forever?"
" Does this barbed wire armband actually make me look tougher or just cooler?"
" Will this butterfly still look cute in 10 years when it looks like a giant moth? How about in 20 years when it looks like a melting pterodactyl?"
"Do I HAVE to get a lower back tattoo or am I allowed to just go straight into porn?"
"Is it 'i before e except after c' or the other way around?"
