What is it with young women and Slag Stamps? Those are those tattoos above their bottoms that are frequently on display thanks to their skimpy tops and low-slung jeans (they’re also called Tramp Stamps in the US, I believe.)
It seems 1-in-5 women under the age of 30 have them these days. Why? Is it just to draw men’s eyes? I thought women didn’t like us looking at them. Maybe it’s to divert attention from their big fat arses. Maybe it’s to kindly let us men know to avoid them, because to me, a Slag Stamp – regardless of whether it’s some stupid celtic symbol or a Chinese dragon or whatever – simply reads Caution: STDs Ahead.
In fact it doesn’t even seem to be the grubby girls who have them these days. I know career women – including one who goes horse-riding and talks all snooty – with these infernal things. It’s like a chain-reaction; one woman gets one, so all her friends decide to get one too, to prove their individuality. Do they realise how stupid they look? Do they realise how grotesque they will look in middle-age? Skin sags when you age; that big eagle tattoo a woman has when she is 18 will look like a melting crow when she is 50 and wrinkly.
In fact tattoos just look stupid in general on women. They make them look like whores and disqualify them from being marriage material. Wives and motherhood do not go together with tattoos. Plus women get stupid shit tattooed on them, like this daft tart (PDF).
The most ridiculous tattoo I’ve heard of is a girl I knew at University who boasted of having a tattoo of her late father’s portrait on her upper back. All very moving indeed, but her boyfriends will never want to fuck her doggie-style. I mean, not many guys want to stare at the likeness of their girlfriend’s dead dad whilst they’re humping her. Daft bitch.

Here in the Colonies, we call them “tramp stamps.” I think I like slag stamps better.
I used to think tattoos on wymyn were goofy. Then piercings (other than ear) came along. Then branding. What the hell will they not do to their bodies?
Nothing. They are men. With an open sore between their legs.
Kick ’em to the curb.

I like them. A tramp stamp helps me identify a woman who has sides to her personality that I don’t want to know.
Definitely marriage != tramp stamp.

Yeah.. but not every tramp has a stamp.
