    There are many symbols that originally meant one thing and have been bastardized over the years. The iron cross was a German military medal going back to Napoleon's time, may even have a history before that. The Nazis, white supremacists and outlaw bikers have ruined since then. I remember going to a car show with my older brother and sister in law when I was probably 6 or 7. I bought a small iron cross and thought it was the coolest thing ever.

    Thursday finally arrived and I got my 4th tattoo.  Really happy it and already thinking what might be next.  Many thanks to Mike Schlicher at Lake Erie Studio.

    Haven't been hear much, lately. We had put our 15 yr old Boston Terrier to sleep a couple of weeks ago which crushed me. But here's the real reason I haven't been here. Meet Cooper, our newest family member. I am so tired!

    Very proud of myself and the family today. Our daughter and I both donated blood for first time. My wife and sister-in-law also donated for 4 units from the family. Glad my needle phobia is subsiding enough to let me help those in need.

    Don't do anything and ignore it. No tattoo is perfect (like everything in life) and that isn't worth worrying about or trying to fix. Just enjoy it and plan your next.

    Absolutely nothing. Your chances of making it worse trying to fix it are about 99%.

    Hmmm... the wrist skin is thinner and doesn't take well to being overworked. And that looks like it was overworked/went too deep. Was this done in a shop? Did the tattooer have much experience? To be brutally honest, it looks poorly done overall.

    Not sure if this belongs here or in the WTF In the News but has anyone seen this article about a study of people with tattoos that has been trending on LinkedIn the last couple of weeks?
    https://www.hcamag.com/au/news/general/reckless-or-creative-the-great-tattoo-debate/177257
    The gist of it is that they concluded people with tattoos are more likely to act in haste and not think of the consequences of their actions. I argued that just like someones race, religion, or sexual preference doesn't determine your personality, neither does presence of tattoos on your skin. And also that it could of easily been framed to show the exact opposite based on the researchers bias (that people with tattoos are more decisive and more willing to live with the consequences of their actions). 
    I was encouraged to see that 90% or more of the engagement was bashing the study and agreeing that having tattoos doesn't make someone a better or worse candidate for hiring but of course there were a vocal few supporting the study. 

    Just curious if anyone here has seen the article going around, what your thoughts on it are and if you feel like you've been passed over on a job you qualified for because of your tattoos?
