6/25: Most tattooed senior

[IMG]pictures/tattooed64yo.jpg[/IMG]

This 64-year-old is considered to be the "most tattooed senior".

Go ahead, speak openly about her! She's not here, and if she were here, she'd probably like all the attention.



kendroid  Monday Jun 25 05:26 PM

hey, she kinda looks like bette davis.

... you know, the lady from golden girls??



ChrisD  Monday Jun 25 06:36 PM

She always was wearing long sleeved conservative clothing. Bet it was a surprise and a half for anyone taking her out for a "nice candlelight dinner."

Goddamn..............

I've read somewhere that people with lots of tattoos say that one of the reasons they do that is because of a certain "high" coming from getting a fresh new tattoo. I guess this old gal couldn't get enough of it! =)

Seen here, the world's most frightening lunch lady

In all seriousness though, how does someone let themselves do that? I doubt that she got all of them since she retired (which I assume she has), so how do you get and stay employed with tatoos like that? I know things are a little more liberal these days (I sat down at a job interview today talking to a guy with blue hair), but still, that's too extreme.

Hmmm...depends on what she did. From what I see, the tattoos are located below the neck line, at the wrists, etc. Unless she was a bartender in South St. Louis.

Steve...job interview??

Oh God...black is white, up is down, THE WORLD DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!!!!!!

Heh heh

As the guy says in Raising Arizona, "Come on Hi. you're young, you got your health - what do you want with a job?!"

Isobelle is a lovely lady- I know her personally. She has just retired from being a top silver service waitress and is still very busy travelling the world making her living (Not sponging from the state!). Her husband is also a very nice gentleman who accompanies Isobelle everywhere. Why is it that people take one look at anyone who is heavily tattoo'd and automatically come to the conclusion that they are of a somewhat lower class than themselves?

Welcome to the Cellar, Nina.
What is a "silver service waitress"?
I have a video some women in New Jersey made of a tattooed woman walking down the beach. The reactions of the sunbathers was surreptitiously videotaped and shows a remarkably diverse reaction. The young and suprisingly the old were cool about it and the people in between ranged from fascination to disgust.
I mentioned in another thread the difference between people with tattoos and people without, is the people with don't care if the people without are without.



Nina  Saturday Sep 6 06:37 AM

Thanks Bruce,much appreciated.
A silver service waitress is one of those very posh waitress's who is the best of the best and would dress, say the Queen's table, y'know?



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Sep 6 11:46 AM

I wish you British would speak English. Just kidding.
"Dress" the Queens table? Does that mean getting everything set up and ready as opposed to waiting on or serving the food?



Nina  Saturday Sep 6 04:12 PM

Correct!

Such things are what nightmares may be made of!

Nina  Sunday Sep 7 06:01 PM

Hey,I know what under the dress...I've seen it.......
It's more tattoos for as far as you can see (and inside where you can't see!) and something we call a chandelier!

I'm afraid to ask, but what is the "something" you call a "chandelier"

Lyrics toLydia, The Tatooed Lady


My life was wrapped around the circus. Her name was Lydia.

I met her at the world's fair in 1900, marked down from

1940. Ah, Lydia.



She was the most glorious creature

Under the su-un.

Guiess. DuBarry. Garbo.

Rolled into one.



Oooooooh

Lydia oh Lydia, say have you met Lydia,

Lydia, the Tatooed Lady.

She has eyes that folks adore so,

And a torso even more so.



Lydia oh lydia, that encyclopedia,

Oh Lydia the Queen of Tatoo.

On her back is the Battle of Waterloo.

Beside it the wreck of the Hespherous, too.

And proudly above waves the Red, White, and Blue,

You can learn a lot from Lydia.



La la la, la la la, la la la, la la la



When her robe is unfurled, she will show you the world,

If you step up and tell her where.

For a dime you can see Kankakee or Paris,

Or Washington crossing the Delaware.



La la la, la la la, la la la, la la la



Oh Lydia oh lydia, say have you met Lydia,

Oh Lydia the Tatooed Lady

When her muscles start relaxing,

Up the hill comes Andrew Jackson



Lydia oh Lydia, that encyclopedia,

oh Lydia the queen of them all!

For two bits she will do a mazurka in jazz,

With a view of Niagara that nobody has.

And on a clear day you can see Alcatraz.

You can learn a lot from Lydia.



La la la, la la la, la la la, la la la



Come along and see Buff'lo Bill with his lasso.

Just a little classic by Mendel Picasso.

Here is Captain Spaulding exploring the Amazon.

Here's Godiva but with her pajamas on.



La la la, la la la, la la la, la la la



Here is Grover Whalen unveilin' the Trilon.

Over on the West Coast we have Treaure Island.

Here's Najinsky a-doin' the rhumba.

Here's her social security numba.



{whistles}



Oh Lydia, oh Lydia that encyclopedia,

Oh Lydia the champ of them all.

She once swept an Admiral clear off his feet.

The ships on her hips made his heart skip a beat.

And now the old boy's in command of the fleet,

For he went and married Lydia.



I said Lydia {He said Lydia}

I said Lydia {We said Lydia}



La La!
