Wah Wah Wednesdays – Your name on a tattoo

Why do people get their own names tattooed on their body? I mean, tattoos are supposed to be an expression of art that you want permanently embossed on yourself to show a sense of individuality.

If that’s the case, you might want to consider tattooing it upside down so that you’ll be able to read your own arm, or even have it tattooed backwards so you can read it in a mirror.
