My Russian friend Babakhin sent me this Russian Army Tattoo. I’m afraid though that I don’t know the story behind it, but I’d say that whatever injury caused that scar taught a valuable lesson — getting your blood type and specifics tattooed on you might not be such a bad idea!
IRASCIBLEVISION got this post-hospital tattoo around his surgery scar (look carefully if you don’t immediately see it; scars can be hard to photograph). It’s by Nate at Sacred Art Tattoo in Springfield, Missouri, and when it’s all done the banner will say “It’ll feel better when it quits hurting.”
I just thought it was a nice example of using a tattoo to reclaim your body.
