You have a tattoo where??

Duffy Brown here.

I can still remember that phone call from daughter. Guess where I am!

There should be a law against any child anywhere ever starting a conversation with those four words. My son used them when he was in Vegas. Do you know how much trouble there is for a young guy to get into in Vegas! He did it again in New Orleans. Even more trouble there! Any wonder I am totally gray!


But I digress, we’re talking about my daughter and where the heck she was that she shouldn’t have been. This time it was the tattoo parlor...or whatever it’s called!

Sweet Mother! She was getting a rose tattoo on her back. The back I washed and dried and powdered and put sun block on was now decorated with a tattoo. Would you like to know how nice that didn’t look with a beautiful wedding dress...but I digress again. Kids!

A lot of celebs have tatts. Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Keith Urban and a ton of others. Some are so hot and others what the hell were they thinking! 

Tattoos sometimes mark you as part of a club...or a gang. In Iced Chiffon the scum-sucking, no-good, low-rent but to die for handsome Walker Boone has a tatt, a 17. In his pubescent years  Walker Boone was part of the Seventeenth Street gang. Now he’s older, wiser and... well you can take the boy out of the hood but the other way around not so much. 

What about the hero in your books? Should he or she have a tattoo? Do you find it sexy? And what about the heroine? Personally I love the hidden tatt where when making love there it is. A little extra zip to an already zippy situation.

Do you have a tattoo  I like the book ones here. If I wasn’t so afraid of needled I might get that little book one done on my wrist. But what about you? Where? Why?

1. Jeewish people can not be buried in the sacred ground if they get a tattoo. (I don't believe concentration camp tattoos count)
2. If you get one, you cannot give blood for a year. I do try to give more often than that.
3. I have thought about how great my scar from a lump removal would look like if it were a butterfly, but I would not spend the money to do that. I enjoy reading more, especially good cozies!

I have several tattoos, the first one os more than 30 years. I got it and them back when nicely brought up middle class librarians didn’t do this....I like them. As a kid, I used to draw and color my arms and legs. As I like to say, “the body is a temple, why not decorate.” When I was within 18 months of retirement, I stated getting them where they showed. LOL. When I got my nose pierced a second time, m husband told me that he wished I acted my age. Hmmmmm...I’ve never been this at before, I’m still figuring it out!
