Latest Rage - Tattoos for the Maimed and Handicapped?
I imagine it would be horrible to lose a limb in some sort of accident. One of my biggest fears is some kind of horrible industrial accident. Since I work around a bunch of printers and presses and with a bunch of awful machines, that’s always a distinct possibility. However, if that does happen, I hope my morbid sense of humor would lead to me getting my broken stump of a limb tattooed with something awesome, like these folks with unusual body tattoos: women with total mastectomy tattoos; woman with syndactyly; man with missing arm; and man who lost some toes.
As I’ve always said, if you’re going to get a tattoo, you need to get something different than everyone else. There’s nothing more unusual than a shark tattoo on a missing arm stump! That’s a great way to turn something people are going to stare at to something that… well, people are going to stare at. But it turns a negative into a positive, right?
Probably, the best idea for the writer of this blurb would be to get a brain tattoo. That's the disabled part of his body. Now, what should it say? How about DUMB ASS?
