10. Bad Tattoos

We've all seen them - terrible tattoos.  Most are as much a product of bad judgment as incompetent artistic ability.  I've got nothing against some ink, but it seems that the more tattoos a person gets, the more the overall quality diminishes.  I've never really understood the compulsion to get inked up.  The whole concept of expressing oneself through someone else's handiwork seems a bit, y'know, stupid.  Like I always say: if you really need to express yourself, write a bad novel.  And no matter how good your tattoo is, you're eventually going to get sick of it.  Unless you can't actually see it, which begs the question: why get a tattoo that you can't see?  What's the point of that?
