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.

In a lawsuit filed yesterday, a Camden County woman accused her orthopedic surgeon of "rubbing a temporary tattoo of a red rose" on her belly while she was under anesthesia. The patient discovered the tattoo below the panty line the next morning, when her husband was helping her get dressed to go home after the operation for a herniated disc, her attorney, Gregg A. Shivers, said in a phone interview yesterday. "She was extremely emotionally upset by it," said Shivers. The suit, filed on behalf of Elizabeth Mateo in Camden County Superior Court, seeks punitive and compensatory damages from Steven Kirshner, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with offices in Marlton and Lumberton, both in Burlington County.

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.

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.

ISSUE | TATTOO A show of pride, not prejudice The Philadelphia police officer with his ancestry proudly tattooed on his arm has undergone fierce negative publicity after being mistakenly linked to the greatest horror of the last century ("Officer's tattoo assailed," Sept. 2). The eagle depicted on Officer Ian Lichterman's arm was described as "an apparent Nazi-style tattoo. " The Nazi-era German eagle bore a swastika; I did not see a swastika in the photo of the tattoo. The eagle has been a symbol of Germany dating to Charlemagne in 800. The word "Fatherland" is ingrained in the German culture, which I learned two years retiring from the Philadelphia Police Department.

The Philadelphia Police Department. The Philadelphia Sheriff's Office. SEPTA Transit Police. The U.S. Marshals Service. The FBI. None of those agencies has a tattoo policy, officials said Friday, meaning that Philadelphia Police Officer Ian Lichterman - whose apparent Nazi-style tattoo on his left forearm drew ire this week from Mayor Kenney and other critics - would not violate department directives at many of the region's law enforcement agencies, including...

Mayor Kenney on Thursday condemned a photo of a Philadelphia police officer with an apparent Nazi-style tattoo on his arm, saying the tattoo was "incredibly offensive" and not the sort of message police should be giving the community. The Police Department also said its Internal Affairs unit would review the photo, which began circulating on social media Wednesday night. It showed a bike-patrol officer with a tattoo on his left forearm of an apparent spread-winged eagle resembling a symbol used by the Nazis, and above it the tattooed word Fatherland in Gothic letters.

While I'm away, readers give the advice. On counseling a young adult against getting tattoos: I met a gentleman with beautiful tattoos. He had a young sister who wanted to get one, too; she had a friend who offered to give her one supercheap. She was so excited and wanted to get it right away. This brother's advice to her was to write what tattoo she wanted on the calendar that very day. If, a year from that date, she still wanted that same tattoo, he would take her to his wonderful tattoo artist, and he would even pay for it himself.

Q: I have an issue that cost me my relationship. My girlfriend (now my ex) has a tattoo on her arm that says "Big John" with a heart drawn next to the letters. I was very upset and offended when I was out with her and it was visible. I was seeing her for approximately four years and everyday when I see her, I had to look at that stupid tattoo. We had many arguments and disagreements about this. She felt, if I was tired of looking at it, I should pay to have it removed or covered. I was really tired of looking at it. My suggestion to her was to at least wear a long-sleeved shirt to cover it. I am curious as to what you both think.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: Imagine my surprise when I got home to discover my fiancée had lovingly had my name tattooed on a private area of her body. For me, tattoos represent low-life, trailer-trash graffiti of the body. To be fair, I don't recall ever having discussed my views of such with her, so I tried to feign some enthusiasm: "Wow, honey, I can't believe you did that. I feel so . . . honored. " Privately, I'm really kind of bummed out about it, and the prospect of watching that thing age and stretch over the years is totally turning me off. No, I won't break off the engagement over this, but what on earth do I do to not be repulsed by this, and how do I make sure it never happens again?

A tattoo can be removed by physician - a dermatologist or a cosmetic surgeon - or a technician at a salon that specializes in the procedure. The choice, however, may not be simple. Doctors are wary of the new wave of salons, while salon owners insist they offer a more affordable alternative that is still safe. "Removing a tattoo is a medical procedure," said Eric Bernstein, director of the Main Line Center for Laser Surgery in Ardmore. "It's more complicated than it looks, and the lasers can be very dangerous.

Paul Carter, a chef from Drexel Hill, is about to turn 40. He wants to change careers, go back to school, study to become a veterinarian. But prospective employers can't get past the ink on his face. "People stare at me, thinking I'm a gang member," Carter said. "I've lost out on jobs. They assume that I'm a hard-core killer. " Though Carter has a likable, easygoing manner, the skepticism isn't surprising. "Outlaw" is emblazoned in 11/2-inch letters on his left forearm.

DURING THEIR five-year courtship, Stephanie Covaleski's boyfriend, John Foster, suggested she get a tattoo. Her thoughts: "When he puts a ring on my finger, I will get a tattoo on my body. " He did, and after their August 2013 wedding, the Morrisville resident, now Stephanie Foster, followed through on her promise. The tattoo - her wedding bouquet - covers the right side of her torso, from her armpit to her thigh, strategically placed to be covered with clothing when she wants. She got it from tattoo artist Pete Zebley, who has created a niche business for brides at Central Tattoo Studio in South Kensington, which he owns with Melissa Montiel.
