Life changes, tattoos don't
I've never understood why people get tats, for starters there is the pain.
Then there is fact that in ten years time "I luv Tracy" doesn't seem so cool now that you're married to Trevor (and for the record it was actually Tracey with an e!)
As for those who get some unintelligible script tattooed down the side of their torso, (Mr Beckham?). What if, despite the tattoo artist saying it meant "We all live in harmony", it actually said "I'm a F*****g T**t"?
Maybe a simple "Mum" would safe. Well yes, that is until the day you bludgeon her to death in an attempt to inherit her fortune. After that, having "Mum" tattooed on your upper arm might be a problem.
Please don't do it, buy a dog instead. Whilst a dog isn't just for Christmas, it isn't for life (hopefully) .
