How do you feel about Tattoos? If you’re anything like me, you love them for a lot of reasons: they’re cool, they’re historical, some bad asses have had them, it’s a culture, and they’re art. Yes! They’re art. Why else would the following list of historical figures have them? Okay, maybe because they were pirates inside (bad asses). Today, you could see them on motorcycles, having piercings and soundly getting into trouble.
Though I don’t agree that Thomas Edison is anything but a thieving POS, who bankrupted a true hero or science…there is Dorothy Parker. I wish No. 5 didn’t exist, but I can see him a la Ted Nugent in today’s atmosphere. Teddy Roosevelt totally eclipses America’s Hitler, so I am able to appreciate this list a little more. There’s a British King from the 11th century, for God’s sake!
As always, don’t forget how this might play into historically accurate tales…
