  1. #1 Tramp Stamps? Ass Antlers? Whatever You Call Them, They've Got To Go. 
    Tattoo removal on the rise in Germany

    Tribal style lower-back tattoos known as Arschgeweih, or “ass antlers” in Germany, were popular in the 1990s. But now a herd of Germans are stampeding to get them removed as they and other tattoos go out of fashion.

    “The number of laser removals for tattoos has almost doubled in the last five years,” Heinz Bull, president of Germany's GÄCD plastic surgery association, told news agency DPA on Thursday. “Now young people who got tattoos on the spur of the moment want to have them removed.”

    It's important for people looking to shed their inky antlers search for qualified doctors, because different ink tones require different lasers, Bull stressed.

    Dermatologist Walter Trettel has laser clinics in Hamburg, Kiel and Preetz that each remove the names of old lovers and other unwanted markings for some 20 patients per week. “This costs about three to four times more than the original tattoo,” he said, adding that is also more painful than getting a tattoo. Removing “ass antlers” requires between six and ten sessions, which can cost between €100 and €300.

    But today's laser removal is still gentler and more effective as earlier methods, Trettel said. “When I first began at the Kiel university clinic we would cut tattoos out or grind them down,” he said, adding that this often left large scars behind.
    Ass antlers. Those two words make the entire story worthwhile. LOL!

    That conjures up images for me.Any woman who has a tattoo anywhere is marked and will eventually regret it. I would guess they are drunk when they have them and after wish they had stayed sober at least for that night ?

    Just a personal thing, but I think they are ugly. A woman is a beautiful thing a tattoo detracts from that beauty - in every single case that I have seen.

    And the same is true of men.

    I personally agree.


    Both can do what they want (as if I mattered to them!) I just don't like them.

    I tend to overlook a tat on a man as long as there is a military history involved.

    Unless you dress in black leather, ride Harleys, drink and smoke a lot, are ugly as sin, and don't bathe regularly, you have no business getting a tattoo.

    I prefer "tramp stamp", since nothing labels a girl as a complete slut quite as effectively as a lower back tattoo.

    Add the muffin top, and you have yourself a white trash complete slut! Jackpot!



    Uh, hey hun. You aren't a size 4 anymore. Quit living a lie and buy the size 10 jeans.
    **** Obama and **** you too.
