FOWC with Fandango: Tattoo


This is you reporter calling in from Solothurn in Switzerland. Where? Yes well, it is a small market town, but we also have our fun now and again. This afternoon I stumbled on a breakdance demonstration in town. It was a little difficult to get a good view, as not everyone makes room for a wheelchair, but I persevered with a total of 100 photos eventually.

The beat of the music was thumping away and the dancers were forcing their bodies into impossible contortion, but this is about tattoos. If you get a collection of breakdancers there is bound to be a collection of tattoos. Unfortunately people are not so keen on having their tattoos photographed, but being an expert paparazzi I managed to find two standing in front of me and my telephone camera makes no noise when being used.


I am not sure who the young man was promising his eternal love, but he combined it with a rose.


And then we have this design. I am not sure what it is, but even tattoo artists have their surrealists amongst them.

It is not often I stumble on a group of break dancers in our town and also have the luck to stand behind two tattooed arms. I was just uploading this and saw that even the dancer has a tatooed arm in the first photo.

  1. “Body art” is the current term. It has gotten extremely popular in the U.S. Garry has NO tattoos, not even an earring hole — and he was in the Marine Corps where almost everyone has at least a small tattoo relevant to the corps. But like many things that “everyone” does, Garry didn’t. Doesn’t. Won’t.

    I have ONE tattoo on my left calf which is a Phoenix, the bird that burns to ash and is forever, eternally reborn from his own ashes. Sort of described my life at that point (20 years ago). I never wanted another.

    My son and granddaughter have a LOT of tattoos. I don’t like clutter, so I stuck with one 😀
