I have been walking around touristing all day and am intrigued by the tattoos I have seen. Not the design or the style, but the volume. I am not talking about the trend for teenagers to get tattoos, but the older people who have body art – and lots of it.
I have no opinion if these people should or should not have a tattoo since they are not in my family and I will not see these people again. I am curious about the thought process for someone who has multiple tattoos and on multiple locations of their body.
So, you have 19 tattoos on your back and you get up one morning thinking “if I just had one more tattoo…” and head off to get number 20.
Or you have tattoos on your upper back, shoulder, neck, and lower back just above the waist line, and think “if I just had one on my ankle…”
I have been surprised and interested to see the number of tattoos on these women today. Given that most of the ones I’ve seen who are very well inked seem to be about 10 years older than I am, I’d better get started if that is the new goal.
I’ll leave you with a different view of St. Augustine Florida – the spanish moss growing on trees.
