Art that adorns the flesh…

Child’s Play

June 10th, 2010 by

Kids grow up so fast.  Or so I’ve been told.  As with all aspects of life that slip by all too quickly, there’s really nothing you can do about it.  Tattoos however, are always great in this respect because you can take moments or memories from a time that is quickly passing you by and immortalize it on your body.

Which is why it isn’t all that surprising but still cool nonetheless that Stu Allen, a 34-year-old father of three from Preston, Lancashire, England has been making something of a habit of getting his children’s drawings tattooed on to his body.

“I got bored of sticking them up on the fridge. They were getting knocked off and ripped. I thought what better way of preserving them than putting them on my skin.”

And hey, he’s right.  It’s a perfect way to maintain that link to a time when his kids were kids.  Anyone who’s ever said that tattoos are a bad idea because sooner or later you’ll regret what you’ve had tattooed certainly never considered this.  There’s just no way that any parent would regret having tattoos like these done.  I think it’s awesome.

I wish that the crummy news website that originally published this news blurb actually took the time to publish a couple photos of Allen’s tattoos along with the blurb.  I don’t know about you, but I want to see some tattoos.  All I can do is say that Stu, if you’re reading this and you want to show off your tattoos, send me some photos and I will post them on the blog.
