There were never any "good old days" — they are today, they are tomorrow
You can't judge a book by its cover... but judging by an excerpt is not unreasonable

There's a new book out called No Regrets: The Best, Worst, & Most #$%*ing Ridiculous Tattoos Ever, with a 20-image gallery currently available online.

After a look at the photos, my verdict is "don't bother". There's nothing that even comes close to "fighing Irish", "you bleed just to know your alive", or even "beautiful tradgedy"...

Really, just skip the book and check out Horrible Tattoos or Hanzi Smatter instead.

Yeah, there's really no need to buy a book of bad tattoos. They're all over the Internet. It's like buying a LOLcat book or a book of the remixed Garfield strips.

I think the marajuana tattoo is a sticker. There's something in the rendering that does not convey skin...

My friend, Wolf, told me a story of stopping by a place with an idea of getting a tattoo before work. There was a fellow sitting on the stoop, waiting for the shop to open. They chatted. Turned out the other fellow had come to have a tatoo repair done. It happens. Turned out it was a repair of a tattoo he'd gotten at that very shop. Well, everyone's got an off day. Turned out that instead of saying "San Bernardino", it said "San Bernado". Wolf left, never to return.
