Irony

Yesterday at a birthday party I was sitting on a park bench near 2 young mothers at a picnic table. Both were covered with tattoos. And I overheard this:

Mom 1: "Did you hear Jessica got breast implants?"

Mom 2: "No! That's just wrong. Why would anyone do something like that to change their body?"

You know, maybe it's a "my age group" thing or a "person with tattoos" thing, but I totally saw the differentiation they would make between breast implants and tattoos. (LOL)

Please, tell me they weren't talking about one of their daughters or their daughter's friends?

Irony: not just for Robert Downing Jr!

(Bad joke, I know, but it's late and I didn't know what else to say)

I can see the difference, too. (pushin' 50 years here, so probably not of that generation)

But that's okay. The observation is still hilarious.

It's the difference between changing the type of siding on the house and adding on a new porch...

My SIL had her boobs done, massive tummy tuck with matching massive scar and major lipo suction, a yr later I got a 1x2 inch tattoo on my wrist and she went off about how she couldn't understand how anybody would want to mutilate their body that way. It's forever and make you look sleazy(as if big honking stripper boobs don't).It amazes me what one person considers mutilation another thinks is beauty and that goes for both ends of the spectrum.

O.K. I was raised with the belief that A lady did not get tattoo's, Hence the name "tramp stamp" and I still feel that way. What these women don't take into consideration is that that cute little rosebud on your boobage will stretch out to look like a calla lily by the time your 45 and that is just not good.

As for a boob job, just WHY?

I have tattoos and wouldn't mind a boob fix - my body is my temple...I just decide to decorate it. :)

I think Packer nailed it.

I have tattoos but would never consider plastic surgery unless maybe I was accidentally mutilated in some way. I have had non-elective surgery and it wasn't much fun so, to me, going under the knife doesn't seem worth it unless it's absolutely required. I wouldn't judge someone who did though, it's their body, their money, and their pain receptors.

What I like is the big, burly guys covered in visible tattoos who turn into giant babies when I come in to give them a shot. I've asked a few of them how they got their tattoos if they're afraid of needles and every one of the have the same answer... "that's different". It's different because they want the tattoo more than they want their flu shot. It's all a matter of personal perspective, I guess.
