My brother and I made a bet before he left for his tour of duty in Afghanistan. I think it was a drunken conversation that went something like, “You come back from war in one piece and I’ll get a tattoo,” knowing that he’d never remember our gin-soaked wager. I was very relieved to have him return alive a year later. One day he asked me to lunch and instead of driving us to a restaurant, he drove me to a tattoo parlor and left me there. For three hours. So, yeah, I have a tattoo. A bet is a bet, but I look at that damned thing every day and wish I had just said “puppy” or “kid” instead of “tattoo.”
What is it about tattoos that always seem to go hand in hand with life change? Rihanna had guns inked on her after being beaten up, Levi Johnston got Bristol Palin’s name put on his finger when he fell in love, Britney Spears headed to the tattoo parlor when she went bald crazy, as well.
Lindsay Lohan gets body art every time she’s drunk or high. Needless to say, her epidermal real estate is at an all-time premium right now. She’s basically a human totem pole with each colorful picture relaying a tale of her latest hallucination. Last week, after the Red Bull and vodka-fueled Samantha Ronson split, Lohan found herself back at the needle, this time getting a Marilyn Monroe quote inscribed on her inner wrist: “Everyone’s a star and deserves the right to twinkle.” It’s time for some self-evaluation when you are having validating statments regarding you star status permanently inked on your body.
I hope Lindsay gets her act together before she runs out of skin.

what is your tattoo Wendie!??
I can’t hear “Everyone’s a star and deserves the right to twinkle.” without thinking about pee :oP
Wendie, I am waiting for you to get a heart shaped tattoo with ‘Misha Barton’ in the middle. That would be great!
Haven’t I suffered enough?
She looks so beautiful with that hair color. But I hate the fact that everytine she’s down or sad she gets a tattoo. It’s just not the way to go. Too sad.
Tattoo’s are incredible <3
I wouldn’t have paid 600 dollars and sat for 6 hours if I wasn’t sure of that.
I want like 12 or so more… so I’m kinda biased.
I just want Lindsay to go away. It’s enough already. It’s probably my only complaint about this site.
A quotation from Marilyn Monroe for your tattoo? Her dipshit quotient just went up again to record heights.
I want to see the tattoo!!
I want to see your tattoo Wendy!
Me too! What is it of??
I think I got my tattoo as a reminder that I did in fact make it through a really rough time even though I never thought I would. Everytime I see my tattoo I am proud of myself and it reminds me that there will be more hard times but I have made it through before and will again.
Yes, Wendy – please please please let us see the tattoo!! I mean Beet uploaded all those photoes at her at the Brit Brit show, so now you can post a private pic. Of the tattoo. You obviously had to show it to your brother, so it has to be located in a place where u can show us a pic without getting arrested :)
YES! you need to dedicate one whole post to your tattoo! me wants see now!
i think at this point tattoos are the least of blowhan’s problems.
How I wish I got a couple of tattoos instead of kids….
