What we’ve said to the girls is, ‘If you guys ever decided you’re going to get a tattoo, then mommy and me will get the exact same tattoo in the same place. And we’ll go on YouTube and show it off as a family tattoo.’ And our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow that’s a good way to rebel.

Ex-skinhead gets extensive surgery to remove racist face tattoos
Meet Bryon Widner. He used to be a white supremacist. When Widner left the movement in 2006, he had a lot to work past to prove that he no longer believed the things he once did — much of it on his own face. “This wasn’t just a few tattoos,” noted plastic surgeon Dr. Bruce Shack. “This was an entire canvas.” Widner had to fight hard to get these tattoos removed and get on with his life, turning former enemies into allies and working with the Southern Poverty Law Center. An anonymous donor paid for the changes to his face (which were incredibly painful), but he paid an even bigger price for the changes to his life. After years of being an “enforcer” for the Vinlanders Social Club, a notable white supremacist group, he quit. He had to leave his Michigan home to get a sense of normalcy. He went for it — for his kids, and for his wife, and to get a second chance. Now, as you can see, the tattoos are gone. He suffers health issues (he has to stay out of the sun), but he says “it’s a small price to pay for being human again.” An impressive redemption story. (Editor’s note: This story has two parts.)

Our new designer Dan shows his love for our public television buddies.

Yes, that is a PBS tattoo. Hardcore. See you Monday, Tumblr.

Sure, this is hardcore. But if you want to be really hardcore, get a NET tattoo instead. Or possibly CBC.

Thailand To Tattoo Tourists: Think Before You Ink&#160;: NPR
The Asian kingdom has long welcomed foreigners, but urges them to  respect Thailand’s customs when getting tattoos. When tourists get  religious tattoos below the belt, it can be offensive to Thais. The  Culture Ministry says it will print guidelines for religious  tattoos  and inspect tattoo parlors.

Also known as &#8220;The Hangover 2 Rule&#8221;: &#8220;The issue came up after an incident in the southern tourist haven of Phuket Island. Exactly whose tattoo offended whom is not clear. Nor is any sort of tattoo illegal under Thai law. But Thais consider the head sacred and the feet profane, and some foreigners get Buddhist tattoos below the waist, which can upset Thais.&#8221;

Protip: Don’t get a non-vegan tattoo that says “vegan.” Oops.

  • vegan In an attempt to prove to her friends that she was more vegan than the rest of them, a young girl got the word “vegan” tattooed in her inner-lip area.
  • not vegan Unfortunately for her, she got the tattoo with black ink, which is usually made from non-vegan charred animal bones. Which is bad for her. Oops. Vegan fail. source via
