Unwind: Hanging Onto Youth???


Good morning!  Time for Gabriel's weekend thoughts on life, love and all things naked!

I am 36 years old.  I work out on a regular basis, eat right 87% of the time, drink a little more probably than I should, and laugh much more than I am sad.  But I think I may be beginning to think about things from a different perspective.

I love the male body in its natural state.  Tattoos can look hot in moderation but I am not a huge fan of so much ink that it takes away from the beauty of a man's body.  Does that make sense? 

I never thought I would be someone though who would get a tattoo.  It would be my luck that the Chinese symbols would spell out "asshole" rather than "serenity"!  If I put something tribal, I would probably end up getting fat and the ink would no longer make me look fierce!  Maybe I can just add a heart with the words "I Love (TBA)"??  LOL!  But I find myself for the first time really contemplating some ink.

That is a decision that is hard to turn back from once you go there, so I am truly thinking things through. 

Is my desire to get some ink an attempt to hold onto my wild and playful side? Several of my 20-something nephews have ink and I think the ink looks good on them.  (Again, it is in moderation.)  Am I trying to hang with them and be "Cool Uncle Gabriel"? 

So there you have my thoughts for this Saturday morning.  If you have ink, what do you like/dislike about it?  Have you ever regretted getting a tattoo? 

Off to see if Groupon has a special on tattoos!  LOL!  (Just kidding!)

  1. You are wise to be cautious. The ink will be there for years and years. To put it in perspective....a butterfly on your back will tutn into a buzzard over your crack.😅😅

    Like you, I think too much ink is a turn off; but that's just my opinion.

    I do have a tattoo. It is a Scandinavian (or Celtic) eternal love knot with Bryn's and my initials and the date we moved in together which we call our Anniversary. I added the date we were legally got married on our 10th Wedding Anniversary. It can easily be covered by a dollar bill. I don't regret getting it at all but I would never get another one. I was 49 when I had the original done and made the addition when I was 55.

  2. I don't have any ink but then I am a wimp when it comes to needles. A little ink is atteactive but too much is too much.

    Bruce's tattoo is over his heart...and I love it. I like to think that it immortalizes our love. This may sound sappy, but when I lay my head on his chest in bed I am right on top of his ink and I love knowing it is there. If you do get a tattoo make sure it is significant to you. Don't do it just for the hell of it.

    1. I have shared often how I am not a fan of over inked men. It is a passing thought...I think. Thanks for sharing!
