On my travels earlier this year to the Dominican Republic, I came across a traveler at a party. He seemed to have overheard the conversation that I was having prior to my groups welcoming him to the conversation as well. He was standing just off to the side in a group of people that seemed utterly uninterested in the festivities surrounding them at that time. Given his boring situation, I didn't really blame him for ditching his group momentarily to spice up our conversation a bit. However, his choice of topic caused quite the debate amongst my circle.
He looks at me and goes, "I want you to take a look at my tattoo."
I'm a huge fan of Art of many types so I really didn't mind having a look at his rib piece. Aannnnnd that is where things got interesting.
The tattoo reads "WHITE TRASH SUPER VILLAIN" and depicts;well, you take a look for yourself.
The opinions varied but most didn't really know how to interpret the tattoo. Was it supposed to be funny?
In a fairly diverse group, no one laughed. I looked around as everyone took it in and really thought about it. At this point, I had to ask,
"Mind if I take a photo for my blog?"
Clearly, he didn't mind.....
But there was one more question on my mind so I asked,
"What does this tattoo mean to you?"
To which, he laughed a bit (I guess to himself, knowing that he had just aroused quite the conversation), took a swig of his beer, and walked away.
Now, fast forward a few months and I was just looking thru my photos on my phone and up pops this image.
