Pondering Body Art

 
While having a quick dinner with HB (HoneyBunny) and a friend recently, we observed a very tattooed man in the ordering line.  No one commented for a few minutes, then my friend asked this question..."If they wear their art on their bodies, what to they put on their walls?"
 
 
We chuckled and watched as the man left with his order.  Now, I can't stop thinking about it.  This is something that never entered my mind...I never would have thought to ask that question.  Now, it has me thinking...what DO they have on their walls?
 
 
When one has spent hundreds or even thousands to have their bodies inked, does one have enough left to decorate at home?  Are their homes stark?  White walls?  Boring, minimalist furnishings?  I think probably not.  But, isn't in a good question to ask as a conversation starter?
 
What do you think?

    1. Brenda - Thanks for that. I was, of course, being facecious, but it was an interesting question. I am not inked, but have seen some beautiful artwork on both gals and guys. I am too old and too much of a coward to think about it for me. I will just marvel at other's courage.

  2. I think nursing home employees will have some good laughs in the future.

    1. Patricia - Well, that is the joke going around, anyway. We'll hope all those with tats will keep their bodies toned so their roses don't become long-stemmed!

    2. That is funny! My son has a dragon on his shoulder. He is 41 now, but all threw his high school years he asked for a tattoo. We, of course said NO! As soon as he got on his own & married he did it. When he broke the news to us during lunch in a cute little restaurant in Huntington Beach, CA, I cried. That was about 9 years ago & I have since learned to live with it & even like it. Our generation was more in to other things....lol...I think it is pretty on some, but there are those that just go way overboard & tattoo to make a statement or to trash their bodies with all kinds of filth. That is where I draw the line. I too, am a coward. I am not into pain..lol Good post to ponder.

    3. Marje - Thanks for jumping in...I love all the comments and confessions! LOL! Give me the wash off kind and I'd be content. Dragon...hmmm...is it a scary, firey dragon, or more like Puff?

  3. I never thought about the artwork on their walls before, but I, too, wonder what the tats will look like when they are not so toned!

    1. Cheryl - We may not have to wait long to visit nursing homes and find out. I am really hoping those veterans who returned home with tattoos still look as macho as they did in younger days...when they felt indestructible. They have my tattoo vote!

  4. I just don't get it, I think the human body is beautiful as it is! Everyone should and does have control over their own body. However, when I see a tattooed arm, leg, back etc., I look at that body part and think how beautiful that body part is on its own.
    Just saying!

    1. Ginger - You make a great point. I think some tattoos are bumper stickers for the body and might just look better on a vehicle. Our bodies are wonderfully made by a loving God...we can't improve on His work.

  5. I got my first and only tattoo last October. It is small and on my inner wrist and a tribute to my TJ. I don't think I will get any more though.

    1. Sandy - Happy to hear your story, too. I think everyone has a special reason for their tattoo and each has special meaning. Yours, especially. Thanks!
