The Virgin Mary Will Be Saved
I ran into Michael last week outside of Madison Square Garden. He had numerous tattoos up and down his arms, but he told me that he regretted most of them. He had been in the military, based in the San Diego area, and he said he hoped, someday, to have all of his ink removed.
"All of it?" I asked. He had a lot.
He nodded, but then pointed to the one pictured above, inked on the underside his left forearm, and said he would probably keep this one, as it was a religious tattoo that has some meaning.
He said that he got this "homemade" piece in Tijuana for about $30, and that it took only a couple of hours to do.
A lot of people in Southern California make the trip across the border to Tijuana to take advantage of the nightlife there. Some even walk away with tattoos.
Thanks to Michael for sharing his tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
