To the death? No.....to the pain.


Sorry for the delay in a new post folks. It was a busy weekend at The Disco: Friday night was spent planning for a visit from a few friends coming to town this week. Closing ceremonies for my daughters' softball teams were on Saturday, and as part of an ongoing effort to plumb the depths of my non-existent tolerance for pain, I made an appointment to get a tattoo. That's right bitches! The Lord of the Disco got inked up! Who needs to got to prison for one when you can remain part of society and pay an ex con to shove ink under your skin by poking your skin several thousand times with an electric needle?! Thanks to the good folks over at English Ink, I can now feel that much more "street" when I'm shopping at Target.

I'm sure no one wants to hear about my weeekend, so I'll get write down to the nitty gritty. Here is the picture of my first tattoo. The gems in the crown are the birthstone of Mrs. Disco. Hopefully this buys me at least 2 hours of uninterrupted time with my PS2. If not, them I'm covering it up with a giant mushroom.

Also, I will be posting the first of two posts over at Offsprung later this evening so feel free to check it out tomorrow morning. The good folks over there have been kind enough to let me contribute some of the vast (but mostly useless) parenting knowledge that I have rolling around in my head.....I weep for our children.

Editor's note: My girlfriend got a matching tattoo with my birthstones on her lower back the day before. And I don't mean in bed, Hay-o!

Editor's note to editor's note: I'm an editor!

HA! It only took ruby earrings for Mr. Salted to get some alone time with his wii.

Kidding!

Litely - You are my favorite media whore.

TK - Thanks!~ Unless your being facetious, then...go to Hell!

Nice tat! Hard to tell from the pic, where'd you get it at?

Manny said...

Onthevirg - Thanks! It's on the inside of my right forearm.

TK said...

I was being serious (for once). It's better than the heart tattoo that a friend of mine just got, which had a ribbon across it that read "Cheap, Not Free". I am NOT making that up.

The inside of the forearm! Ouch. That must have been spicy.

Manny said...

TK- Oh.Gawd. Yeah, I would put it under the Jalapeno pepper spicy catagory. But hey, I'm ALL man baby (I wimpered like a Darfur refugee).

Redhead said...

I'm always a fan of men getting tattoos, so congrats. (And am I the only one who thinks a tattoo that says 'Cheap, Not Free' on it is hysterical? I say if you're going to have to wear something for life, it might as well make you laugh.)

TK said...

Well of course it's hysterical. I laughed myself to tears when he showed it to me... but it's also insane. Completely and utterly insane.

Manny said...

Redhead - Thanks! You wanna talk hysterical tattoos? My ex roommate has a panther on his left arm and a bulldog with a ball and chain that has his astrological symbol on the ball on his left.....Hold on, my gaydar just went off.
