  • well, I won't
I am ink- and pierce-free, but I know a great song I want to share with you:

Lydia, the Tattooed Lady (sung by Groucho Marx in "At the Circus")
Music by Harold Arlen
Lyrics by E.Y. Harburg

Oh Lydia, oh Lydia, say, have you met Lydia?
Lydia The Tattooed Lady.
She has eyes that folks adore so,
and a torso even more so.
Lydia, oh Lydia, that encyclo-pidia.
Oh Lydia The Queen of Tattoo.
On her back is The Battle of Waterloo.
Beside it, The Wreck of the Hesperus too.
And proudly above waves the red, white, and blue.
You can learn a lot from Lydia!

La-la-la...la-la-la.
La-la-la...la-la-la.

When her robe is unfurled she will show you the world,
if you step up and tell her where.
For a dime you can see Kankakee or Paree,
or Washington crossing The Delaware.

La-la-la...la-la-la.
La-la-la...la-la-la.

Oh Lydia, oh Lydia, say, have you met Lydia?
Lydia The Tattooed Lady.
When her muscles start relaxin',
up the hill comes Andrew Jackson.
Lydia, oh Lydia, that encyclo-pidia.
Oh Lydia The Queen of them all.
For two bits she will do a mazurka in jazz,
with a view of Niagara that nobody has.
And on a clear day you can see Alcatraz.
You can learn a lot from Lydia!

La-la-la...la-la-la.
La-la-la...la-la-la.

Come along and see Buffalo Bill with his lasso.
Just a little classic by Mendel Picasso.
Here is Captain Spaulding exploring the Amazon.
Here's Godiva, but with her pajamas on.

La-la-la...la-la-la.
La-la-la...la-la-la.

Here is Grover Whelan unveilin' The Trilon.
Over on the west coast we have Treasure Isle-on.
Here's Nijinsky a-doin' the rhumba.
Here's her social security numba.

La-la-la...la-la-la.
La-la-la...la-la-la.

Lydia, oh Lydia, that encyclo-pidia.
Oh Lydia The Champ of them all.
She once swept an Admiral clear off his feet.
The ships on her hips made his heart skip a beat.
And now the old boy's in command of the fleet,
for he went and married Lydia!

I said Lydia...
(He said Lydia...)
They said Lydia...
We said Lydia, la, la!

I'll get mine done on Monday. I'm not saying anything about it yet  :-X
But I'll show you when it's done.
Kerstin and I will go together, she's getting her third tat, for me it will be my first. I'm a bit nervous, because it'll be an armband, all the way round my upper right arm. And everybody keeps telling me how much it hurts on the inside of the arm  :-\ ???

You've had three babies. Trust me, the tattoo is small potatoes compared to that!

That's what I keep telling myself. I think I'm only average sensitive to pain. But very vocal about it  :laugh:

Damn, I was never good at keeping my trap shut  :laugh:
Do you know the tribal armbands with a motive in the middle? It will be a purple flower, but instead of a meandering tribal around the arm it will be a variation of Heath's wrist tattoo; same lines but between them a rope as reminiscence to our boys. Looks better than it sounds.

Oh, sounds nice. But then I think any Heath tribute tattoos are nice! I can't wait to see the finished product!
