for tattooed people, and those who want to be

Ho, ho, ho, ow, ow, ow? (Holiday gift suggestions, part 1)


Tattooed people tend to be rugged individualists, right? So we don’t need no steenkin’ shoppin’ at all… right?

No, I didn’t think so either.

Following my personal philosophy of think… plan… go for it, I present a few suggestions for yourselves or for that multicolored Someone Else. I haven’t read all of these myself, but I plan to. If you’ve read them, I hope you’ll give me a book review in the comments.

I got my first tattoo when I was 46. I hope the people who read this blog don't have to wait that long. I love talking about body art.
