Tool Tattoos

One of the most memorable days we've ever had was years ago when a roommate came home and announced, "dude, I got a tattoo!"

"Ok," we said, figuring it was one of those little ankle daggers, or maybe a Celtic symbol on the shoulder, at the most a tribal band on the bicep. What we weren't expecting was for our roomie to take off his shirt and turn around, exposing a massive tattoo on his back. Irreversibly etched into our drinking buddy's skin was a naked woman in a crucifixion pose, complete with angel wings which stretched from shoulder blade to shoulder blade. In one of her hands was a sword and in the other was a quill pen. One nice thing about the tattoo being on his back was that it prohibited him from seeing our jaw hit the floor.

But it's now many, many years later and our pal is still very satisfied with the tattoo, and hey, more power to him. He even got married to a wonderful gal who apparently doesn't mind.

That said, there's hope for these other dudes who have opted for permanent drawings, not of naked women, but of tools on their bodies. The good fellas over at Charles & Hudson have collected a bunch of photos of tattoos that we're glad we don't have..

Check out the tattoos here.

The crossbones and skull with welding helmet is definitely my favorite of the bunch!
