At first glance I thought this tattoo said “EAT THE RICE”, which reminded me of a time I was walking past a Chinese restaurant in Toronto, and the sign outside simply said “EAT MORE RICE, NOW!!” I didn’t listen, of course..
Anyway, I’m not exactly sure what it’s referring to, but I prefer to think it’s because rich people are grain fed from birth and tend to be plumper.

Apologies for the fewer than usual posts today (at least it seems I haven’t posted as much) but it’s been busy and I’m not feeling well. I’ll make it up to you, starting with this impromptu collection of knuckle piercings on (and by) Brian of Studio Graphics, Baraboo, Wisconsin.
Read more for some tongue-split-on-shiny-knuckle action, and an incredibly deep explanation of how they came to be..
I think it’s time soap companies started looking into “No Tears” hand lotion..

“Seeing as there’s been two other “palm eye” tattoos featured on ModBlog (Roo: I can only find one) I thought these might interest you. They weren’t inspired by the Pan’s Labyrinth tattoos, however. I don’t really know what they were inspired by, if they were indeed the product of inspiration, but I love them! They’ve washed out heaps since I got them (about 3 months ago), but I’ll try to send an updated photograph soon.”

I can’t quite make out what the rule on the index finger is (Posers? Posterity?), and I can’t say I agree with two of them, but..
“Summer has started in the Netherlands, so I’m wearing short sleeves and Dermablend on my hands and arms to cover my tattoos for work. It works sufficiently well, people notice that something is strange about the color, they may guess that it’s make up, but don’t know about the tattoos. Unless of course they ask about it, in which case I usually explain that it is to hide the tattoos, which is usually taken well.
What still shows are the bulges formed by paraffin injection to accentuate the female shapes of the tattoos (not advisable, I had bad experiences before, but anyway…). Their visibility is dependent on the way the light shines on it and the perspective, but they look pretty erotic to me even when covered.
People seem to avoid asking me what they are, but it is a bit on the fringe… freaky stuff!”
