Body Art Gone Bad
So I'm like in revision mode now, which isn't nearly as fun as "I have nothing urgent to do" mode. My editor called me the other day with revisions for the witch book I just finished, and she said that some of my scenes don't have enough "up and down motion." And I'm like, okay, okay, fine, I'll add more sex. Except she wasn't talking about sex. I need to add more of that too, but she was talking about something else--something about needing my characters to actually have goals and do stuff or, you know, not be so boring.
Also, she needed me to find a tattoo image online for the cover of the book, because the heroine has a tattoo on the back of her neck, and that is going to be the cover image. So I spent a couple of days getting all glassy-eyed while staring at photos of people's hairy tattooed shoulders, legs, and various other body parts (ahem), in search of the right image. There are a lot of BAAAAAAD tattoos out there in the world, lemme tell ya.
But this renewed my interest in a tattoo for myself. And then I thought, hey, this is sounding like blog topic material, since my main criteria for blog topics seems to be that the subject be utterly devoid of value or meaning. So now I'm thinking of getting a tattoo on the back of my neck, like my heroine has. But what...I don't know.
Here's the question: what's the worst tattoo you've ever seen?
I had a hair stylist once who had a tattoo of an extremely large-breasted naked woman on his underarm. This disturbed me, and it gets my vote for worst tattoo...though gosh, there are so many to choose from, it's hard to narrow it down.
