My previous post got me thinking. Apparently a common means of expression these days is the tattoo. You want to send a message about yourself ("I really like Chinese characters" or "I'm a devout Chiefs fan"), but at the same time there has to be some apprehension about the long-term implications. Maybe at some point you won't as devout a fan, or you'll become more interested in Cyrillic characters.
So what is a person to do? Do you take the leap and get the tattoo, recognizing the long-term risk, or do you hold off and lose some short-term self-expression?
Here's my concept. Tell me what you think. Instead of tattooing yourself and absorbing the risk of having a dated, faddish tattoo twenty years from now, use my new concept. Pay me, and I'll go to a third-world country and, via some negotiations with family members, I will have your tattoo placed upon a third-world child.
I will provide photographs, and you can display them in bars, night clubs, or amusement parks to show people your trendy tattoos and self-expression ("self" being expanded somewhat for this purpose). However, when your passion for that particular issue fades, you just throw away the picture and get a new tattoo on a new child. No costly and painful tattoo removal, and you have a palette of blank skin to work with that is limited only by Bangladeshi birth control measures.
Any thoughts? Should I start up this new business venture?
