Not My Legs!

In Tarbert last week this tattoo was walking with its owner.  I've never been one for tattoos but this was rather splendid - on someone else!

  1. A little bit too much for me...but to each his own.

    1. Not my scene either Virginia but then they are not my legs!

  2. Oh my gosh! I have seen some fantastic tatoos online lately. I can certainly appreciate the talent that goes into creating them. In fact, my son wants me to get one with him.
    However, I keep telling him, nobody wants to see a tatoo on an old lady. Not even me. :)

    1. I often look at what some girls have tattood on them and think that they will look back and wonder why on earth they did it. I did see a very heavily tattood lady who was considerably older than me. It was not a pretty sight.

  3. One of these days you'll be sprung taking photos of tattoos (is that the plural?) on chaps' legs, GB! You really must stop. :)

    1. The advantage of a telephoto lens Pauline.

  4. Since the legs and feet look rather clean and not too hairy, the whole thing is not too off-putting. But generally, tattoos (no matter whether on female or male skin) are quite the turn-off for me.

  5. I've been amazed at the kind and variety of tattooes on the Olympic athletes. I grew up in a time when only hoodlums had tattooes. Now, not only gold medal athletes but also one of my granddaughters has them. Hers is a pink ribbon loop (breast cancer awareness symbol -- don't know if it's the same in the UK) on the side of her rib cage in memory of her birth mother who died of breast cancer about five years ago. I considered getting something -- flower? butterfly? bee? -- on my ankle but am too cowardly to follow through.

    1. A close female friend (a lot younger than I am) has a small tattoo on her ankle. Hmmmm.

  6. I never really understood tatoos and was never attracted to them. (They can still attract my camera though, if I can get away with it unnoticed.) Then I read a blog post, perhaps a year ago, by someone who had a tattoo done to commemorate her unborn children after several miscarriages. That touched me.

    1. Not for me either Monica but then what others do with their bodies is, I suppose, up to them.

  7. Like new forms of communication, I have come to accept that tattoos are just a new choice... they don't mean what they used to mean.

    I'm not so sure about piercings...

    1. Tattoos are a personal statement these days that few understand other than the cognescenti. I've never been a one for piercings for me although I confess that I love earrings in women ('s ears but not their tongues, navels and sundry other body parts).
