Rorschach tattoo

Filed under: Bodyart — 18:38 Sat 22 Apr 06

In a pub garden this woman and a friend were sitting about 12 feet away. She had a strappy top on and I could see three tattoos. One at the top of her right arm, one on her right shoulder and one on her lower back. I think they were black once – they looked greenish black to me. They also looked utterly utterly crap. Fuzzy edges, nothing defined, not even a vague shape that indicated what it could be. Except for the placement I’d have sworn she did it herself with a size 4 knitting needle and some marker pen ink. Imagine a Jackson Pollack with ink on blotting paper. It was worse.

  2. Who the hell is Jackson Pollack?
    Is he Pollock’s cousin from Poland? :D

  4. Was she old enough so that the tats could be old enough to look that bad, or do you think it was just a crap job in the first place?
