Another Reason Not To Get A Tattoo

As noted here, I'm not into poking holes in one's space suit in general and tattoos in particular. While it probably is a generational thing, I find it to be an enormous turnoff when I come upon a young woman who is bending over, say, a delicatessen counter and a biblical quotation or winged tattoo emerges from her jeans just above her butt crack.
Now there's another reason, as well. A new study finds that there is all kinds of toxic crud in some tattoo inks, including cadmium, manganese, lead, antimony and mercury.

This implies that you are turned on while watching young ladies conduct their daily business. I think 99% of them would be very happy to hear that their tattoo, or anything, turned you off.
