You can polish a turd but it's still just a piece of shit.
Wow! Was that harsh?!? Good.
Tattoos can be very sexy and expressive, but only when the canvas isn't warped and bloated. It won't matter that you have a tramp stamp when your back looks like a busted can of biscuits. An ankle tattoo will only draw attention to the fact that you don't really have ankles. Instead of spending money on a tattoo that won't enhance your sexy, invest in a gym membership.
I know... a tattoo isn't always about looking cute. Sometimes it's about showing allegiance to a country or cause or honoring a living or dead loved one, but when you slap a tat over some hot mess you're not honoring anyone.
Make the tat your reward when you've dropped fifteen pounds and tightened up what's left. You'll feel better about yourself-- and so will we.
