Fine Art for Life

 
Posted by Picasa


After fortifying yourself at Mike's, Poor Paul's, or Bullwinkle's, you can decorate yourself for life right next door.

Darla said...

Wonder how many stumble over to the tattoo parlor and then regret it the next morning?

I understand one of the few business's with great prospects for growth are tattoo removal establishments.

Rambling Round said...

I think I'll pass!

Pam said...

Someday its gona be real funny to see the 70 year old's running around with the tattoos from their youth.

Frank said...

You can tell us Lois, what kind of tattoo did you go with? Flower? American flag in color? Something to get you through the door of Bullwinkles without having to show ID? Just to tap into that wild side, right?

Lois said...

No tattoo for me Frank! I'm way to squeamish and I change my mind so much that I would be afraid to get one for fear of not being able to get it removed without a lot of pain!

I know you're sort of joking, but the guys at Fine Art - like other good tattoo artists - will not ink a person who has been drinking. Aside from the issue of next day regret, alcohol thins the blood and can make a tattoo not come out as crisp and colorful as desired.

Lois said...

Yes I was just having fun downtown guy! I'm sure that they are very professional. I knew that alcohol thins the blood, but did not know that it would affect the art of tattooing. That's pretty interesting! Thanks.

Jacob said...

I'd need to be "fortified," all right! Comatose is more like it! Tattoes for life? Yikes!

Don and Krise said...

I would imagine a few would have liked to stumble over and get a tattoo, but checked their pockets and found them empty after visiting one or all of the other establishments.

JM said...

'Art for life'! The sign says it all, so be sure you will not regret it! :-)

James said...

I got enough tattoos in the 80's and early 90's to last a lifetime. :-)

Rob said...

Well, Lois, whiskey, dancing girls, gambling, tattoos... Where will this end?

Tricia said...

Hehehe There's a bar called Bullwinkle's here in Southeast Missouri! That's funny!

MaCoBra said...

Nice commercial 'fine art for life' smart location as well!

Lois said...

Don't worry Rob, I'm getting back to my usual tame posting tomorrow with a nice Watery Wednesday picture!

A home far away said...

So true..

I´m a Swedish woman living in Singapore and I love taking photos:)

Have a good day!

Abraham Lincoln said...

Well, if two faded to black red roses is still fine art in spite of the green leaves going black too, then I got fine art left from 1955 on my left arm. LOL

I wanted to tell someone who understands more about photography than just pushing the shutter button that your visit will count and help make history. Pick a Peck of Pixels

I park adjacent to a tattoo place quite often, often idly thought about going in and asking if I could take a few action pics. I may have served but I do not have a single one.

Eamon said...

For life is right. Too many tattoos on too many body parts these days...

Denise said...

Great sign and in another lifetime maybe :)

Lisa Wilson said...

So true! They'd better pick something they like!

Bonnie Bonsai said...

Oh I love the captions or notes of your pictures Lois. Makes me laugh.

Tash said...

I've got 3 tiny dots tatoos & they hurt! cannot imagine what the people with all those fancy art work suffer thru. the sign is a great find and capture.

Nikki Beaumont said...

"Fine Art"!!! I beg to differ! LOL! That cracks me up! What? Are they going to put the Mona Lisa on someone's backside? I don't THINK so!

downtown guy said...

Lots of judgment going on here, none of it from people with tattoos about people who choose not to get inked. Just sayin'.

Clytie said...

Well I don't have tats but do appreciate some of the art I see. Yes, I do think it IS an art form, when done tastefully and correctly.

We also have a Bullwinkles in town, but it is a family fun center - miniature golf and the like. Kind of threw me for a loop to hear it referred to as a bar! :)
