Man...

Post by T.G »

I'm having a debate with someone about tattoos and whether or not you'd conceal them on your wedding day.

My view: If I knew my Mum wanted me to for the photos, yes. (Which I know she would.) So...yes, yes.

Their view: My wedding is about me, and I'm not hiding myself for anyone. I'm proud of my ink, blah, blah, blah...

Listen chicky, I love my ink too, but I love my family more. They know I have them, I know I have them, the guests know I have them. But the photos won't.

Sometimes things just aren't 'all about you'. Y'know?

And the whole 'selling-out' vibe that was coming at me...gimme a break.

Love you mother and do for her before you do for you, ya selfish wench. I've made my Mum miserable in the past, and for even one of those times I upset her I owe it to her to put a smile on her face. My Dad wouldn't care, he's all chillin' with whatever.

Don't make a big deal out of it. And selling out..wtf? How high school...what's next? A punk pop quiz? Go buy another wallet chain at Hot Topic.

I was wondering where I could get a new wallet chain.

Your wedding is only about 2 people, You and the person you're marrying.

The wedding photos? Ummm, they're yours too.

Of course, if you follow this theory, you'll be footing the bill on your own (the way I did).
On more than one occassion this conversation has led to a handful of boob."

Yeah, another good point. You see I wouldn't be paying for all of it. So to have them pay then tell 'em where to go...just seems a bit uncalled for.

I disagree, if that was the case, then don't invite anyone, and why even get married? It is supposed to be a celebration and confirmation of your love AND a joining together of two families. After all, I have a bunch of inlaws, who are, for better or for worse, part of my family now (and so does my wife). So it isn't all about the couple, it's a day for the families too, espescially the parents, whether they pay or not. Just sayin'...

I think he'd approve of the 4-inch cross on me forearm, though.
why is my moral compass always pointed east? that's the direction of the nearest liquor store.

Tattoos should only be visible if your dress is made of leather, or if the person performing the ceremony is wearing a Fat Elvis costume.

Otherwise you might as well have the groom dress in a wifebeater (the pun!) and both of you carry half-drinked sixpacks of PBR by the plastic rings to the altar.

well you don't know that, Goose. What if He don't? And what's more, what if you become a fugitive through circumstances not of your making (and what Drunkard is unfamiliar with THOSE?) the frigging all points bulletin ALWAYS says "suspect has a 4 inch cross on the forearm". In a word, you're fucked.

Well, I'd get hitched in Vegas anyways. But I'd still cover the ink.

I don't see how tattoos are trashy though, as you imply. I just think certain days call for certain looks.

I always got a kick out of the list of tattoos they'd have to read off if I was ever on America's Most Wanted/Crime Stoppers or something. It'd be a longer ad. LOL
