“Da plane. Da plane.”
No, not that kind of Tattoo.
In this blog post, I am referring to the other type, the infestation of body ink that has overcome the world of professional athletes. Colin Kaepernick comes to mind, as does almost the entire roster of the Sacramento Kings.
I’m not a fan.
Now, before you label me a small-minded bigot, let me tell you that while I do not sport any body ink my wife does have a nice tattoo on her left shoulder. So I can woo the tattoo.
But when it covers much of your entire body that is overkill. I would love to understand the logic behind it. Are they really that disgusted with their bodies or do they just need something to spend their millions on?
Either way, it looks childish. Somehow in a world of abundance we need to remind ourselves that when it comes to tattoos less is more.
