11. His brother’s date of birth…because he wasn’t old enough to get a tattoo with his own birthdate.
“I met a guy once that had a date of birth tattooed to the back of his neck, in plain view. He told me it was his brother’s date of birth. At that point, I expected the story to spin into a very heartfelt sob about a deceased family member. No…this chap couldn’t decide what ink to get. He took so long that the artist suggested his date of birth, and he agreed. However, he remembered just as he was asked what his date of birth was that he was not the legal age to get a tattoo at the time. So in a panic he gave his brother’s date of birth. Well I nearly hit the floor laughing when he told me.”
12. ‘Those two hands clapping with a necklace.’
“A tattoo artist friend had great stories. My favorite was the fellow who came in wanting ‘those two hands clapping with a necklace.’ It was a rosary prayer. He wanted a rosary prayer tattoo.”
