California Mamas are More Likely to Have Ink

Mamas in California are more likely to have tattoos according to a semi-recent Harris poll. Their research revealed that 16% of men and 15% of women in the United States have tattoos. The West Coast had the highest percentage of tattoos in the nation...at 20% compared to 14% in the East & Midwest and 15% in the South. Considering the fact that California is the most populous state in the West, then mamas in California are more likely than other mamas on the West Coast to have them.

Here is a pic of mine:

I am planning my next one. Here is a pic of the tattoo that I am thinking about getting on my left shoulder blade. It's not going to be square of course...a lot of the extraneous details of the background will be removed.

I am still trying to decide about my next tattoo though. I want it to represent California and he is a Leo so there will probably be a lion in it somewhere. When it is time, I am going to have a really good friend of mine do it. His name is Taka and he works as a tattoo artist at Body Electric on Melrose in West Hollywood. We became friends when he was the lead singer of a band called Bomb Child. Now he is the lead singer of a band called the Living Dead Lights.

So if you live in L.A. or ever visit L.A. and you decide that you want a tattoo...go to Body Electric on Melrose and ask for Taka.

I read it :) Thanks for the compliments! Your views are shared by many...it's all good.

I forgot to tell everyone who will do my tattoo when it is time so I added a bit of info. If you know anyone who wants one...tell them about my friend. He is really good...he's a Virgo and they are prefectionists!
