When you have tattoos and nearly everyone you know has tattoos, you kinda stop noticing tattoos. I just discovered I was teaching a full on heavy WP chick this spring. Like just now. Cause someone pointed out she has a big ass 1488 on her collarbone. She’s a mess of black lines over like 90% of her body so I never really noticed any one thing in particular.
HOW COULD I NOT NOTICE A GIANT 1488!!!
Flanked by Reichsadler! And a fucking Screwdriver crest! Granted that one is high up on her leg where I’d never see it skating, but still.
Fucking Christ. I feel unclean.
And to be clear, sure, they could be old and she can’t afford to have them removed or covered. But I just found out her skate number is also 1488!!!!! Jesus! I never saw her in a jersey or even knew she had a skate name or number when I was teaching her. Ugh.
