This is a tattoo but mostly it's a story. And the story is as follows…

When I was 17 I had a friend named Doug Grueber and one day I went over to Doug's just after he had gotten back from a high school band trip.

When he saw me he said, "Hey man, look what I got!" and then proceeded to pull up his pants leg to reveal a small Yin Yang tattoo on his ankle.

I was surprised at this and said, "I thought you had to be 18 to get a tattoo".

"Psh", Doug replied. "They never check ID's at those places".

So I filed this information away for a rainy day, which turned out to be the very next day. I was kind of kicking around the house, pretty bored, and thought I would test Doug's theory at a new tattoo place that had just opened. I had this little eye I had doodled so I took it in and asked if the guy could do it for twenty bucks. Well, he had nothing going at the moment so he said, "Sure" and gave me the form to fill out.

Just like Doug had said, he never checked my ID or anything and I just rolled my age back a year to make me be 18.

The tattooing went just fine and I left all proud of myself.

Coincidentally I was staying the night at Doug's house that night so when I get there I was like "Dude, you were right!"

"Dude, what are you talking about?" he replied.

"They really don't check IDs at tattoo places", I said and proceeded to show him my new 'ink'.

"Dude!" he exclaimed. "Mine was fake!"

The End

I like the tattoo, too. If I were ever to get a tattoo, it would be something simple that I drew myself.

@ThatGuy, we stayed friends for a long time but eventually kinda drifted apart. I moved towns and the friendship just didn't survive the distance. He was a good friend for several years though and I've always been glad to have that story and tat to remember him by.

tattoos are always better when there is a good story to add to it.

Well then that makes this one of the best tattoos ever. Like I said on my pic, none of mine mean anything (except the S). They are simply drawings that I liked.

Thanks for the story. I should try to trick someone into getting a tattoo someday.
