Top Chef Tattoo Tuesday

"Dear Lord, please don't ever let it be so hard to decide what's for dinner that I need to take hints from my feet. Amen."

Never understood tattoos. I always felt they were more about vanity then anything else for people with low self esteem. Some people do get them to commemorate something in their life, but I see that as a crutch that I have never needed. And that shit's forever and doesn't age well with the rest of your body. And farm animals, really? Does she belong to a 4H club?

I don't think I'll be getting one anytime soon.

Big Shamu said...

I'm certainly not getting any on my feet.

LaDivaCucina said...

OWWWWWW!!!! That would hurt! She's got piggies like La Diva: Fred Flinstone feet!

Big Shamu said...

Yes and the tattoos make them oh so much better.

LaDivaCucina said...

PS: I forgot all about the shoe aspect of the chile challenge. Damn! My fave new pair of shoes is a Calvin Klein wedge with metallic silver straps but nothing near as cool as some of the platforms and super high stilettos that are out now.

BTW, how did Moi send you those chilies without them getting rotten?

Dani said...

Ouch, Ouch, Ouch! Major Ouch! I've heard that the feet are the worst when you're getting inked. Gives me shivers just thinking about it.

Big Shamu said...

Dani, do you have tattoos? Spill.

Big Shamu said...

La Diva, Moi was a most generous soul and overnighted them to me in a stylish red cooler. No spoilage at all.

Dani said...

Hmmmm....what makes you ask?




Peppers overnighted in a spiffy cooler! Moi, you have a sweet soul.

Big Shamu said...

Oh yeah, it sounds like Dani's inked.

Dani said...

Okay, I'll tell but no stoning allowed. ;)

I have four. A medium one on my lower back. One on my right ankle, and two more on my left. They were all very painful to have done, but the anklet was the worst. Felt like my damn foot was on fire! That was about a week and a half whine fest right there.

Big Shamu said...

You know, I understand the personal reasons of wanting and getting a tattoo. It's just not something I'd do. It doesn't make it right or wrong I just know that the way I thought about things when I was 18 or 20 are sometimes vastly different than I how I think about things now (way past 18). Tattoos are way too permanent for me.

LaDivaCucina said...

Let the stoning begin! haha! Just kidding! Dani's got a tramp stamp! I bet that ankle one REALLY HURT! ouch. A lot of my friends have the ones on the ankle that look like an anklet...

I agree with you Sham,I have a TON of friends that have tats and it's a form of expression for them.

I just could never find anything that I wanted permanently. I can't even keep the same hair colour or hair style, how could I pick an image I wouldn't get tired of?! I wanted a Betty Boop tat years ago....

I couldn't even manage to have the henna tattoo. Is it weird it made me claustrophobic? I sometimes feel that way when I wear jewelry sometimes too. Weird.

Dani said...

Yeah, we're all still growing into ourselves at that age. Thankfully, I love my tats but I'm not sure how I'll handle it if Elizabeth ever gets one. I would hate to see anything permanent on her beautiful body. I love her just as she is, in the body she was born with.

Dani said...

You are so funny Diva!

That's how I've always thought of them. Just an expression of ones self.

Sorry, La Diva wrote: My fave new pair of shoes is a Calvin Klein wedge with metallic silver straps but nothing near as cool as some of the platforms and super high stilettos that are out now. and then my mind got all preoccupied, and I totally forgot my original comment, which was:

YUUUUUUCCCCCKKKKKKK!

LaDivaCucina said...

Moi no likey the super high hooker shoes? I do! I haven't tried to walk in any of them yet though....!!!

Sham, now you have to send the cooler back to Moi with something dee-lish!

Big Shamu said...

Oh yeah that was the plan.

moi said...

Oh, gosh, no, I LOVEE the super high hooker shoes, whaddya kiding me, I got a coupla pair in my closet right now as we speak. My "yuck" comment was about the ugly tattooed feet. Which don't DESERVE to dip themselves merrily into a sparkly Calvin Klein wedge, non!

LaDivaCucina said...

Hmpf, indeed.

4thborn said...

Dani, don't listen to these curmudgeons. They must have the hungry grumpies or some other gastronomic ailment causing their ill-tempered attack on body art. "low self esteem"???; "tramp stamp"??? "Harrumph," say I.

Big Shamu said...

Hmmmm, I sense a familial vibe coming from that last comment...

Dani said...

Hahahahha! My sister ROCKS! Love yah sweets. :)

LaDivaCucina said...

Wow! 24 comments from such a simple post Shamu. Who knew?!

Big Shamu said...

I'm waiting for Dani's Wordless Wednesday where she'll reveal her own tats. So did you sister urge you to get your tats? And what exactly are Hungry Grumpies?
