      Ahhhhh!!!! : ) So very terrifying are these tattoos. Very interesting that one would even consider such, being so permanent at all, but I know my husband just loves to watch vampire movies, but that tattoo would be another story. I would be so afraid to sleep next to him looking at such on one's arm! LOL

      Very interesting indeed.

      Hugs, Faith Reaper
