    Just because some choose to have ink certainly doesn't change what there capability is to earn a good to excellent income.
    I learned long ago not just from my tattooed Navy Father but also a neighbor growing up that's a Pagan 1%. Tattoos don't make the man... Both are Korean and VN combat Veterans, their tats tell stories about there lives.
    I was making a statement that " she " can easily pay her bills without calling daddy's bestie to get her home, car or motorcycle repaired.
    And the funniest part, if one of my employees needed a brakeline replaced, one of us would just jack it up and replace it for her in the shop parking lot. Or go to her home if the truck was there.

    Edit,, and I don't believe that she would be scared to work on the brakelines, she tends to like to learn new things
    .
    Change your d*mn tune will ya? When are you gonna let this go? I have.
    If all you are gonna do is give me grief about what I post DON'T READ IT Heh? Have a nice day :-D

    It means their parents were probably screwed up flower children that never grew up themselves.. let them dress themselves when they were 2 or 3..

    And kept repeating the mantra.. What other's think doesn't matter!!

    Sharp as a marble... it's like training a rock to jump rope.
    Listen to me now, and believe me later: it doesn't matter how much you pump up those muscles, as long as you reach the full pumptential.

    It's not 'roids but thanks for noticing...

    You ever see somebody with a Green Beret tattoo that has their Group on it.. Probably never was..

    I disagree with that. Its painfully obvious that you didn't serve.

    And what's a " Group " in the Armed Services?????

    Some of those silly skulls crossbones, M16, parachute, paddles, scuba and on and on all have meaning to those that know.

    My sister loved the starfish, so that is what I got on my shoulder. The guy who designed it was the one who also gave me the tattoo.

    Four pics to the finished design:

    Just out of curiosity, did you ever serve?

    Because a lot of people in the military, even if they were not Army, knows what a "Group" is when talking about Green Berets, as Bob was.

    There are five active duty Special Forces Groups and two National Guard Groups. Each group is assigned to a certain geographic region. 10th Group is Europe, 5th is the Middle East, 7th is South America, etc, etc.

    If I EVER got a tattoo it would be Marvin... or Bugs..

    Don't need a "Look at me, I'm a pirate" type of tattoo.
    Tattoos are so damn popular nowadays it's more rare to find people without them than with them. The old "traditional" military tattoos are all but gone on today's young service members. Tattoo artists nowadays are doing some mind blowing work and only getting better.

    It used to be you went in to a shop, picked out a picture on the wall that the artist had a pre-cut stencil made and that was it. Lines were big and bold and color was packed in with no real shading. Those were the old school military style tattoos. Eagles, daggers, sailing ships, wings, etc, etc.
