The Teacher and the Tattooed Lady

My, oh my, have times changed since the 1970s.

I started college in 1977. Since I grew up in a pretty conservative town in the South, the only people I knew back then who had a tattoo were sailors.

Ok, I think my cousin had one, but I don’t think he was ever a sailor. So I guess “good ole” country boys get tattoos too.
