Alright ladies (and some guys pathetically), enough is enough. We all remember back in I’d say early 2002 when EVERY girl you knew was getting their first tattoo and chose that perfect spot that went so well with their low rise jeans right above their asscrack to get that oh-so-cute tribal, butterfly, quote, whatever tattoo. The beauty of these tattoos is that they seemed to be dead giveaways for sluts open-minded girls. All you had to do was look around at all the girls sitting in a barstool, their shirt creeping up their back with a g-string poking out and if you see that tribal symbol with the butterfly in the middle there was a good chance you could take that girl home to fuck her talk about her tattoos in more detail. Now now, this isn’t true for ALL girls so don’t go commenting on this blog calling me an asshole because you have one of those tattoos, that’s your own fault, we were all 16 once.
Since most of those girls now have grown up and probably hate going to the beach/pool/anywhere because there is a good chance they are going to see someone else with a tattoo in the same spot (and possibly the same design), where can they get a tattoo now and be ahead of the curve? The answer: rib cage!!
Don’t kid yourself ladies (and guys too), you know you have been racking your brain thinking of something original that you can get inked on your side because its “so hot”. My question is this: is this the Tramp Stamp of 2010, or is this really a non-regrettable thing that you will always like? Time will tell I suppose.
Usually I would just be an asshole and tell all the girls to stop while they are ahead because you are already behind if you don’t have one already, but the more and more of these tattoos I see, I have to say they are quite attractive if pulled off the right way IE: the girls personality goes with the tattoo, originality, the work on the tattoo, etc. Ironically, not one but both of my ex-girlfriends have had side tattoos and the first one had it since I met her in 2005 so she was WAY ahead of the curve (stars on the side), the second being Miss Kaypee with her Snake tattoo that was went with all her other tattoos as she had forms of royalty in many different cultures all over her body (+1 originality). I have got to hand it to the people that get these tattoos: you are tough motherfuckers, I would most likely just cry and look like this lady. I can’t even imagine getting it colored in, that ink is literally going into your ribs and I’m sure that shit hurts more than listening to Lil’ Waynes Rebirth album front-to-back.
The question now is: what isn’t just overused by everyone? Quotes? Custom designs? Flowers? Google “rib cage tattoos” and you will find out that stars are by far the clear front-runner in the unoriginal category. But once again, in my opinion, if pulled off on the right girl, can still look hot as fuck. One thing is for sure: all the tattoo artists love it because it gives them an excuse to have a girl hold her bare breast for however long it takes to finish the tattoo and you know eventually you girls are just going to say fuck it and let him see the glory (or possible disgrace) that is your boobs.
