Excuse Me, Miss, There’s Something on Your Shoulder …

More from the archives.

This young tourist, spotted outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art, happily shows off the colorful tattoos that peep out above her tank top.

Her shoulder and upper arm are covered with hibiscus blossoms. On her back, the red-clad figure on the left is 1950s porn icon Bettie Page. On the right, in green, is a demure Marilyn Monroe.

    I always wonder how would they deal with the issue of removing it, if and when some idea comes tomes to their minds… ;))

  5. I swear I am really trying but I have a hard time understanding tattoes. I recognize the illustration is well executed but I just don’t understand and I probably never will. There, I’ve admitted it. Shame on me.
