Right? Women showed shoulders and backs inundated with tattoos. A level of understanding should exist that people with tats on their back expect admiration from people behind them.I know a woman who had the initials of her then boyfriend in scripted on a very unusual body part. Never mind. The point is that Tattoo Rule Numero Uno is to never have […]
