    Sheesh, people. I was responding to the assertion that it's absolute common nomenclature. I just don't think it is because I'd genuinely never heard it in my life until I read this thread.

    i don't like going to past things to justify what would be new things (more than the first two tatoos), but a good example would be when i was 15. i spent an entire fall, winter, and spring running sprints and running distance. by the baseball season, i had gone from 8.6 second 60-yard dash to a 5.85 (slightly better than Major League average). conquering the body through discipline, that would have been worthy of a Sword or a bind rune of Fehu and Uruz and Rada.

    It has to be pretty common if I have heard of it.

    I'll bet you a beer that if you ask your circle what a "tramp stamp" is, more than 1/2 will know.

    Not attacking you, but you have shared several times before that you tend to run with an "artsy fartsy" crowd so it isn't suprising that you've not heard such a term from them.

    And the premise that because you and your circle of what, 30-50 friends, define what is common place langauge/thought is laughable. Just because your small group of friends (small relative to the population at large) hasn't heard of something doesn't mean it isn't relatively common.

    My wife tatooed the wall in our garage with the front of the van. Left a real nice imprint on the license plate in the drywall.

    Does that count?

    Common or not, my wife has 3 tats on her back and if someone used that term to her, they'd be getting a bruised colored tattoo around their eye.

    Re: Do you have a tattoo?

    I have a tattoo of the word "TATTOO" on my forehead. Is that weird?

    But seriously folks, I don't personally have anything against 'em, they're just not for me.

    Re: Do you have a tattoo?

    I have never heard the term "tramp stamp" before this thread either. I'm 37 (and even have a tattoo) and have worked with college kids for the past 8 years.

    Nomenclature or not, to me, the term is just wrong.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    Re: Do you have a tattoo?

    Getting a tattoo has never entered my mind.

    My father-in-law was into all sorts of trouble as a kid..and teenager...and young adult. He readily admits that just about the biggest mistake he ever made was getting a tattoo. As soon as his father - a German Jew - saw it, they dropped everything and went to get it removed using all of the latest medical technologies that were available a half century ago.

    More pain than he ever experienced in a 25 year military career.

    That is always one thing that has influenced me about tatoos---the inhumane way they were used to 'brand' people.

    I realize that people today are making voluntary choices and statements (which is certainly their choice) but that image remains with me.

    Same here... I asked a female co-worker today (in her 50's) and she had not heard of the term. Then I just said the same words to another female (in her 20's) and she knew exactly what the it was - even going so far as to call a tattoo on the lower back on a woman a "bulls-eye" and saying that it meant the woman was "easy"... I predict as tattoos become more commonplace [which they have] the term will gradually fade away...

    OTOH... when I went to school in SE KY in the 70's wearing bright red lipstick (which I did) meant that you were "easy" - I switched to pink real quick.

    Doesn't the Maori (sp?) in NZ use tattoos on the face as a form of beauty marks?

    It's my understanding that many primative tribes use tatoos as beauty marks. Everyone is welcome to draw their own conclusion. To me, that's far different than people branding other people for the purpose of segragating/eliminating them. It's a different subject and I thought my original post made that distinction. If it didn't, I appologize.

    I was under the impression that tattoos have been used throught out time, and across various unrealted cultures as a "beauty mark" or body adornment. I'm sure there's been plenty of times where people have used them for evil reasons, but my guess (and it's only a guess) is that people have used them for positive reasons far more than evil.

    But I can also appreicate why someone with a holocost background would not be thilled about a tattoo.
