There are some great ones in here, many – if not most – of which are actual and not Photoshopped. Enjoy! More…
Here is one of the BEST tattoos I have ever seen. Even though it is only black ink, the detail is phenomenal! The three-dimensionality… it actually looks as though her skin is being used as a corset-like bodice. Amazing!!!
(NOTE: I’ve been slacking lately with posting my Parting Shots. But will now start posting them on a nightly basis again.)

One thing about tattoos, there is no eraser. No “delete” or “back” key. No “control + z” (keyboard command for undo). A tattoo is not an etch-a-sketch… you cannot shake it and start over. Romney has the patent on that.
Before getting a tattoo with any text of any type, it is highly recommended that a spell check is completed before the needle hits the skin. Google it. Grammar check it. If you and/or the artist’s English is not very strong, write it down and find someone whose English IS strong – neighbor, friend, teacher, librarian, convenience store clerk – and double/triple check the hell out of it. Have the paper with the CORRECT text right there next to the artist. Tic off each letter as the artist progresses. An ounce of prevention is worth a forever-lasting misspelled tattoo. When it comes to lettering, cover-ups just don’t do very well.
