There are websites devoted to the creativeness some have employed to disguise or cover tattoos. Oddee.com has pictures of one man who had the name Tracy etched into the skin right over his heart. After they broke up, he had a second tattoo put on -- large red letters spelling out "VOID."
Actor Johnny Depp once had "Winona Forever" tattooed on his arm, but after they broke up, had the "na" removed so it now reads, "Wino Forever."
Aaron Evans of Bristol, England, must've thought he'd be safe getting a neck tattoo of his own name, rather than a girlfriend's. As if his name wasn't enough, he had his birth date added beneath it. Both were clearly visible on the video the security camera recorded of him breaking into a car.
While surfing the Internet looking at funny tattoos, I ran across a blog called Buried with Children, written by a nurse who works in adult critical care. She wrote about going into a patient's room with another nurse named Judy to give the patient a bath. The patient, a woman, had a tattoo on her stomach that said, "Frank's," along with an arrow that pointed downward.
The nurses completed their task without comment, then set the patient up for breakfast when a man walked in who the patient said was her husband.
"Oh, hi," said Judy. "You must be Frank."
The man looked confused and then said, "No. My name is Jimmy."
I imagine that patient regretted ever getting the "Frank" tattoo.
But didn't regret it as much as that nurse.
