Re: I want a nautical tattoo :)

The problem with tattoos is that they distort with age as the skin/body changes. We've all seen the older lady with what used to be a butterfly on her shoulder now looking more like a vulture

Tattoos I believe have their roots on Polynesia and consequently they are very popular in New Zealand - probably half of the local population has a tattoo of some sort.

And maybe it's just NZ but if wealth were measured inversely to the number of tattoos, we would break all the rules - there are many very wealthy "ordinary" people (not rockstars or athletes) that have several tattoos.

Personally I don't need a tattoo to identify me - I have a lot of memorable scars from stupid things that I have done over the years, my family would have no problem identifying me
