No, But Thanks For Asking

[Ink] People often ask me (usually in a disparaging tone) whether or not I will regret my tattoo, five, 10 or 50 years down the line. It's possible, but I will never regret it for the most frequently cited reason: ability to get a decent job. In fact, part of the reason I got inked in the first place was to remind myself to never, ever wind up in a dead-end cubicle job. Worst case scenario: I will (*gasp*) wear a long-sleeved shirt! I understand that tattoos are still somewhat shocking and subversive, but I really get tired of people questioning my intelligence and even morality based on their quick assessment of my colorful skin. I recently stumbled upon the following site dedicated to professionals with significant body art. Take a look:
