Re: Nautical Tattoo Thread

Old fisherman friend of mine was known as Tattoo John. Long before tattoos were trendy. Pretty much most of his body was covered, but his favorite was an eye on the head of his penis. He loved to say "I wanna see what I'm getting into" Yea, he was a character...

Have a similar friend name of "Tony the Tuna" (tuna fisherman), his is one testicle tattooed like an eight ball. His favorite gimmick is to call "eight ball in the corner pocket" while playing pool, and then whip it out and dunk it. I know, gross! No accounting for taste, or the lack thereof...

Re: Nautical Tattoo Thread

A grizzled Royal Navy CPO went back to the flat of a mature bird he pulled in the Crown and Anchor pub.

As they stripped off to get down to it she fell about laughing." You matelots"
she exclaimed "you've had your willy tatooed with HMS-whatever next!"

"You might be laughing on the other side of your face soon." replied the CPO
"When I get a hard on it says Hammersmith!"

100% of them are stupid, and look like grafitti. One of the worst ideas ever. No it doesn't matter that they are common in "tribal cultures".

Re: Nautical Tattoo Thread

I've never personally seen it, but hear that Chaz from Taz has one which is quite "interesting". As one in one's armpit certainly does have such potential

Good one!

I see that I missed a great opportunity. I should have asked:

Who says it's not acceptable? When did it become unacceptable to ask them if they have a job? That seems to be a sore subject...
