LOL....sorry about the spanish thing! I don't disagree with you....I guess it's hard to explain what I mean. I agree, of course, there has to be a line drawn somewhere with everything (please, I'm Italian AND from Jersey and ever since Sopranos came out whenever you meet someone new, they ask if you know Tony Soprano or if your familys' in the mob...yes, we all carry guns, hide our millions in the yard and speak like derelicts)....but the reason I hate political correctness is because there's no solidity in it. It changes everytime someone complains about something....we keep changing the rules to the game to please different people (which of course, we're all different) so now there's no actual correctness to the politics being debated....does that make sense? But you couldn't have summed it up better than you did with your last sentence. Maybe I should've saved 500 letters and just said that myself (LOL)....points to you gizmo.

You mean, you don't visit the Bada-Bing and kill people for a living?? Who would've guessed! Thanks for the points, and no worries about the Spanish thing... I just got exhausted with the "illegal" debates on other threads. I do think PC-ness can get out of control, and we can't answer everyone who whines about something... I guess that's where the common sense comes in, since that's the best way to draw the line. Of course, everyone has a different idea of what's sensible, but we have to trust the government to remain neutral & reasonable on that. Scary thought, huh?

LOL, very scary thought.

And I don't simply GO to Bada-Bing...I own it, yeah, I claim it though, during tax time, under my other business...waste management, of course. And no silly, good mobsters don't go around just killing people, you "got a guy" for that.

What the narrow minded people that don't know about me is that I am also a Sergeant with a major metropolitan police department. I find it ironic that the people that would give me the "looks, whispers and judgements" when I'm off duty would be the same people that would greet me with open arms in a emergency situation.

Judge away because I could give a rat's a$$ what anyone thinks about me! My best friend can't stand tattoos, while he looks at me and shakes his head he knows he can count on me for anything and vice-versa.
__________________________________________________ ______________
When I first saw this thread I was looking forward to seeing other peoples tats. I have no pics now, I'll post them as soon as I can gets some pics taken. I currently have 8 and plan on more

On my left arm (1/4 sleeve) I have 3:
1 - a Native American design with a silhouette of the "End of the Trail" statue with 5 feathers.

2 - 2 club related tattoos.

On my right arm (3/4 sleeve) I have 4:
1 - An American eagle carrying a blue/black ribbon in its talons that signifies the "thin, blue line" of police officers killed in the line of duty.

2 - A iron cross surrounded by flames with a modified Irish Claddagh memorializing a brother in my club, and Chicago police officer, killed last year leaving a fundraiser in Indiana we held for a fallen officers family.

3 - An aerial view of the National Law Enforcement Memorial's walking tour map on my elbow. (I know it sounds odd but you'd have to see it to understand)

4 - A fiery skull that represents a friend/co-worker killed in the line of duty. I'm adding a second mirror image for my other friend/co-worker killed during the same incident with their badge numbers and the date of the end of their watch in in between. (I'll have this finished by the end of the month)

On my right calf - the Rose & Shield logo of the National Law Enforcement Memorial.

Let's keep the ink slingin'!

Dude, I know. I started this thread to share pics and tattoo stories. I along with a few others have posted some of are pics and others have shared what kind of tats they're looking to get. I had no idea that it would get hijacked. So lets try to make this thread the tattoo thread it should have been from the get. Please post your pics. Thanks!!

Very nice!! The tat is beautiful, and... ummmm... you aren't so bad yourself. So, is the SS# tattoo in case your body can't be identified? If so, that's kind of morbid but logical at the same time.

Amen... and LOL! As I've mentioned before, my sister works for the police department (as a lawyer/analyst), and many of her officers are tattooed. Personally, I think there's nothing hotter than an inked man in uniform - double whammy!

All of the people who judge will eat those words, when a tattooed doctor, firefighter, paramedic, cop, etc., saves their lives. You'd think society would become less judgemental over time, but it seems they just find something new to gripe about. It's really sad...

See? That's what I said earlier to "LoveBoating"... a true friend/loved one doesn't have to like everything you do, but nothing changes how much they care. My parents hate tattoos, and it hasn't made them love me any less.

I look forward to seeing pictures! You all are making me itch for more ink... and after every one, I say "that was the last"!
