Thursday Thirteen - 148th Edition

Thirteen Things about Eaton

I don't have one, but I like the artistic value of the ones that are true creative works. I am fascinated with how much pain people will go through to get one; or more. I am intrigued by the different reasons for getting them. And I am aghast at what people will actually do to their bodies...

You guessed?



1.... Star Trek fans will go to all lengths it seems, to keep their favorite characters with them.

2.... Imagine waking up to that every morning for the rest of your life... :(

3.... My mom once told me, "fact is stranger than fiction" - I think she was right...

4.... Naive me! I thought women didn't have tattoos in the 1940's...

If you embarrass easily, there are some bare and nearly bare bodies past this point...

5.... This young lady almost has no need of clothes...

6.... Fantasy, beautiful - ethereal...

7.... Gracefully Japanese...

8.... hmm... :)

9.... Breathtaking! Look at all that ink work, how do people stand the pain and how long would that take...?

10... Very romantic, delightful...

11... Stunning and startling and very sexy...

12... This is from Strike The Box, a site showing fire men and fire women's tattoos...

13... Another Strike The Box tattoo. These tattoos remind us of the precarious nature of the profession.

I guess people have all different reasons for permanently marking their bodies, I don't profess to understand every body's reasons for getting tattooed, not by a long shot. I do appreciate the beauty, the meaning and purpose of some and shake my head at others. All in all it can be a quirky world...

  1. Hi Eaton!

    Those are incredible. I saw where one woman had a bamboo image actually carved into the skin. Yikes.

  2. Ouch! Some of them are beautiful, but they all look so painful!
