No, I didn’t get a tattoo myself, but the What Would Jesus Blog looks at folks crazier than me who have emblazoned themselves with band-related tats to profess their love for all to see, for the rest of their lives. No Pearl Jam stickman for me (as Jesus conjectures in his fabulous post), but I have fleetingly considered something music-oriented, very loosely related to Pearl Jam. But it’ll probably never happen because I don’t want to be an 82 year-old gramma with a bitchin tat on my back to show the other old ladies at the retirement center under our floral mu-muus. That just depresses me.

Favorites are the U2 chords tattooed around the arm (cool idea) and the Elliott Smith XO. My roomie in college had a huuuuge Smashing Pumpkins tattoo on her hip from Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, and I wonder what she thinks about that now (hi Tricia!). The Smiths lyrics across the pelvis tattoo is kind of depressing, and how about those Bjork lyrics in Braille inked on that girl’s back? Madness.

PS – Judging by the opening picture to his post, I’d say Jesus has a little crush on me. That’s okay. It’s mutual.
