the tat seen 'round the world

Beating a dead log.

Justin's tattoo isn't as big as I originally thought it was.
I pictured it curving off over his arms. Hugging him like a blanket but it doesn't. It's not the prettiest artwork I've seen but it obviously means something to him. Enough for him to have it driven permanently into his skin for all to see when exposed.

Maybe he thinks of it as a shield from the outside world. His mother's love will always protect him. She'll always be his guardian? ::shrugs:: What do I know.
I like how the hideous little cherub has Harley Davidson wings.
(for his and Lynn's love of the machine?)

I like the wings and I like the rays going down his back.
I like bits of it. As a whole - I'm just not sure.

I'm just sayin'.

I think you're right on a lot of the meaning behind his tatoo and I agree that even though a lot of us think it's extremely ugly, that it means something to him.

I've always thought of tattoos as a personal thing. I mean people always ask me "Why would you get a tattoo of that?" I always respond with "It means something to me. It's a part of who I am."

Obviously Justin's mom is a big part of who he is! (Although we all knew this before the tattoo!)

I dunno, I don't think it's all that bad. I would never get it on me though!

Alright I'll stop babbling now! I just enjoy tattoo talk a lot! haha

Re: tattoo talk

Tattoos are so very cool - when done well.
I've seen so many hideous ones that I can't bring myself to getting one.
(I also hear they are very addictive - I'd end up going overboard, I just know it. )

Re: tattoo talk
Yeah some are just disasterous! I mean one of my friends has one of the UGLIEST pirhana (however it's spelt) tattoo. To this day I still don't know why she got it. She claims it looked cute on the paper. She's not all there though...know what I mean?

And they are addictive. I have four. I plan on having at least 3 more. Yeah. My theory? One tattoo leads to two and two lead to 20! So yeah they're just a bit addictive! haha
