I’m thinking about something neotrad this year. Plague Docs and vampire bats for the whole pandemic theme, but in the lighter neotrad stylised way.
At the same time, I’m really getting into some really dark shit from a couple of artists at the same studio who are doing pervy stuff and genuinely creepy witches, demons and crazy stuff like that. 95% I wouldn’t go through with any of that: wife and kids disapprove and they may be right that it’s creepy for an old dude getting hot young chicks tattooed on him.
Good Lord! Who would want to put that pornographic stuff on their hides for the rest of their lives? While I am not anti-tattoo (I've got three), I am very Old School (as you might expect, given my age) about these matters--eagles and other fierce animals, military insignia, hearts with "Mother" on them (a much safer bet than your heartthrob of the moment), coats of arms, etc. Do the people getting the pornographic tattoos give any thought that in 10 or 15 years they may living more normal lives, and what are their kids going to say when they take them to the beach?
Some of those, especially that snake one, would be real dick-wilters for me if I were still young enough to be interested in such matters. (And, yeah, I did my share of carousing with tattooed strumpets back in my wilder, younger days.)
