What's worse than cow cuddling?

Because nothing says " remember me " like a wrinkled patch of dead skin with Betty Boop in a sailor suit.

"And what do you want to be when you grow up?"

Better yet, they can also preserve 90% of the emotional scars that lead to the tattoos.

My brother was tattooed head to toe. His skin ink could cover a lot of real estate if you know what I mean. I just imagine my walls covered with creepy biker tattoos. Lovely. Think I'll stick with the old urn full of ashes, thank you very much. On the other hand, if I had the little rose that was on my first wife's thigh, it would bring a tear to my eye.

"That's so nice that you had Bubba's facial tattoo removed after he passed."
"After? I picked that up off the floor after his last bar fight. We were about to have it re-attached when his ticker gave out."

This country has a tattoo problem. Now it will continue into eternity.

Junior looks a little creepy to me. I could picture him sewing together several "swatches" and making a morbid tattooed costume, ala Buffalo Bill in Silence of the Lambs. Yikes...

Stixnstonz, he could also make a lovely quilt out of all these tattoos.

I have a much cheaper system. It involves Silly Putty.

Anyone remember The Bitch of Buchenwald who made lampshades out of tattoos from our captured military? Relations maybe?
