Ink.
Stop! Think!
Look around
with judgment sound,
before you begin
to mutilate your skin.
Will that tattoo look as cool
uncovered at the swimming pool?
Chantilly wrapped--will you try to hide
tatts that steal more attention than the bride?
~*~
And as time passes, in years to follow,
does that act of daring ring hollow
as kids ask what you were thinking--
were you high, were you drinking?
Tatts okay at twenty,
change at seventy.
Keep pristine skin.
Shine within.
Rethink!
Ink.

Inspiration: I saw a middle aged couple at the store today. Both had multiple tattoos. A tasteful one MAY be okay, but multiples are an addiction. Men can be addicted, too. Trust me when I say that most people viewing those with lots of tattoos are embarrassed for them. Men carry it off as a macho thing. My son has lots of tattoos. I told him it's time for him to stop! My disclaimer is that this is just my opinion. Thank you for reading my poetry.
Chantilly = wedding dress lace.
