WHAT IS happening in today's society? I work near Broad and Spring Garden, and when I go to pick up lunch, it amazes me how many young girls have tattoos. I'd say that out of 10 females, seven have some sort of tattoo. Don't they know these tattoos are for life? Would it look proper when they go for a good-paying high-profile job interview or at a formal social affair? I'm old school and feel that women and young ladies should look like what they are. Why would they get a tattoo on the arm, forearm, neck or other visible place when it might affect them in the future?

Recently, a congressional committee dispensed with the Reagan administration's ridiculous proposal to require federal employees to submit to urine tests. Now William F. Buckley Jr., another rightist demagogue, suggests that AIDS victims be tattooed and that gays would be the principal beneficiaries of this since they are most at risk of contracting AIDS and could thereby more easily identify individuals infected with the disease. Since when has Mr. Buckley concerned himself with anything other than the denial of basic human rights to gays?

Wail 'til Allen Iverson hears this. The Memphis Grizzlies have announced a "Tix for Tats" promotion for tonight's game against the visiting 76ers. Any fan attending the game with a tattoo, no matter how small or large, will receive two tickets to a forthcoming game. Iverson, well-known for his variety of tattoos, is very popular in Memphis. The Sixers gave the Grizzlies one of their six sellouts last season. A woman accused by Michael Jordan of trying to extort $5 million from him claims he promised to pay her to keep her from filing a paternity lawsuit.

If Mike Keane keeps this up, he'll need to find a place for a third Stanley Cup tattoo. Keane, who has images of the two trophies he's won on his left ankle, sent host Dallas to the Cup finals by beating former teammate Patrick Roy twice as the Stars defeated Colorado last night, 4-1, in a Game 7 showdown. Dallas will open the series at home against Buffalo Tuesday night in the first Stanley Cup finals in Texas. "I'm not a goal scorer," said Keane, who nonetheless put two past the all-time winningest playoff goalie within 4 mintes, 5 seconds of the second period to give Dallas a 3-0 lead.

With its thick curlicues and sharp lines, the tattoo that hugs boxer Mike Tyson's left eye makes him look menacing, evil ... hungry to give a beat-down. It's supposed to. Tyson, who is scheduled to fight Clifford Etienne tonight in Memphis, is now sporting a tribal marking found on Maoris, the indigenous peoples of New Zealand, said Vince Hemingson, writer and producer of The Vanishing Tattoo, a forthcoming National Geographic documentary on the tribal art form. Hemingson said getting the tattoo was a rite of passage for Maoris.

About that Eagles tattoo . . . The photograph of Kurt Wagner's sharp new tattoo in yesterday's Inquirer caught the eagle eyes of some football fans. The fresh tattoo said "NFC Champions 2005. " "Let Kurt Wagner know that the Eagles are 2004 NFC champs and not 2005, as is on his leg," season-ticket holder Harry Fow of Philadelphia wrote in an e-mail. Although the championship game was last Sunday, it capped the 2004 season. "He'd better hope they win next year, also," added Fred Rhodes, a self-professed nitpicker from Willow Grove who also took the opportunity to gripe that too much official Eagles paraphernalia displays the team's eagle-head logo like a "loser," facing left, and that, technically, the millennium started on Jan. 1, 2001, not 2000.

When local tattoo artist Shane O'Neill was crowned Ink Master Tuesday night on the finals of the Spike reality competition show of the same name, you may have heard the screaming of his family and friends all the way from his shop in Middletown, Del. O'Neill, 40, an Aldan native who has a second parlor in Willow Grove, has known the results for nearly nine months, since the contest finished taping in New York. He just has been contractually barred from sharing the good news.

  Her wholly round 36Cs exposed, Paula Johnson watches Rose Marie Beauchemin mix pigment - first a little brown, then a little pink. Through the magic of permanent makeup, Beauchemin is about to tattoo nipples on Johnson's reconstructed breasts. "It's all about creating the illusion of protrusion," Beauchemin said one recent Monday afternoon at her Mount Laurel office as she gradually shaded in Johnson's areola and nipple area. After just three sessions, Johnson's nipples look like the work of Mother Nature rather than Beauchemin's deft use of an electronic magic marker.

There are fascinating and eerie parallels between Arkady G. Bronnikov's study of convicts' tattoos in Russian gulags, which appeared in words and photographs on the New York Times op-ed page Nov. 6, and my investigation into the shrouded world of tattooing in the U.S. Senate. Like the prisons that Bronnikov visited, the Senate is an insular, predominantly male culture with a rigid hierarchy that is articulated through an almost impenetrably encoded lexicon and iconography. Although the gulag tattoo is typically rendered in a lurid pictorial style and the senatorial tattoo tends to be minimalist - designed for optimal legibility, like an Olympic mascot - both function as resumes of past deeds and indications of the bearer's place in the institutional pecking order.

Carolyn Roth was 10 when she lost her grandmother to Alzheimer's. Later, as an adult, when she became chairwoman of the Philadelphia Walk to End Alzheimer's, she considered a tattoo: It would be a lasting memorial to her grandmother, and, at the same time, draw attention to a cause near and dear to her heart. So, three years ago, she got on her shoulder some carnations to represent her grandmother's January birthday, Latin words that translate to "Grandmother, I carry your memory in my heart," and a forget-me-not - the logo of the Alzheimer's Association.

D EAR ABBY: I'm a mostly happily married wife and mother. I love tattoos. When I was younger, I was engaged to my soulmate. His name is tattooed on my wrists in honor of the love we shared. Unfortunately, he was killed in a car accident. Several years later, I met and married my husband, "Brett. " When we fight he brings up the tattoos. He says they're "disrespectful" of him and I should get rid of them. It upsets me because I got the tattoos before I ever met Brett, so how can they be disrespectful?

TATTOOS WERE everywhere in Courtroom 608 yesterday. Men with dollar signs on their hands sat by women with stars on their cheekbones in the Criminal Justice Center. Some had lips on their necks and roses peeking out from their cleavage, and at least one man had a tattoo inside his ear that just looked like engine grease. Gary Valecce, 53, sat in the gallery with them all, the right sleeve of his jacket pulled up to reveal a dark tattoo with hints of blue and emerald green from his elbow to his wrist.

Lorraine Lukach explains why she's got a fabulous dragon tattoo on her right hip. "As you get older," says the retired middle school guidance department secretary, 64, "there are things you do that you never would have done in the past. " Pete, her husband of 41 years, nods from across their Deptford living room. He also has postretirement tattoos, including a spectacular "Turkish eye" on the inside of his right forearm. "After she got hers, it forced me to get something I wanted," says Pete, 66, who followed up his debut tattoo (the legendary "Dead Man's Hand" of aces and eights)

  There was a time when even the most confident of ink-wearers feared that hand tattoos would render them forever unemployable. No more. The trendlet Tattoo artists are routinely etching letters below knuckles to create words (among the most popular is love ). And graphics just above the nail bed - such as shamrocks, musical clefs, and ankhs - are favorite tiny tats. Some couples have wedding bands tattooed on their fingers. And hearts, punctuation marks, card symbols, and celestial bodies decorate the sides of fingers.

Rubber bands snapping really hard - painfully hard - against the skin. That's what laser treatment feels like to Marianne Morrison, who is getting three of her tattoos removed, including a large iris on the right side of her neck. It hurts more than getting a tattoo done in the first place, said Morrison, 40, of Germantown. If only she'd listened to her husband, local tattoo artist Eric Eaton, who grudgingly did the ink she's trying to erase. But the bartender wants to take the edge off her appearance and look more professional before starting nursing school.

Police have arrested four people who held a 52-year-old Mayfair man captive in his own home for nearly two days, during which they forcibly tattooed him with what officers called "inappropriate racial and sexual images. " Three of those arrested were his roommates. Police said the man flagged down police officers a block from his house on the 3100 block of Brighton Street about 9 a.m. Tuesday and told them he had been held against his will since 3 p.m. Sunday. He said three of his roommates, plus a fourth man from Bustleton, had assaulted him - and he showed police bruises to his hands, eyes, ribs, and torso.

THE MEN and women held and restrained him. They marked him up with tattoos of genitals and racial stereotypes, he said.

John Stanford, a police spokesman. Cops were called by the victim and arrived about 10 a.m. to the house on Brighton Street near Hawthorne.
