I know a lot of y'all have tattoos, but this has to be the strangest tattoo I've ever heard anyone getting.

Retiree Tattoos Cremation Plans on Arm
Associated Press | April 11, 2007

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Retired pipefitter, Army veteran and cancer survivor Russell Parsons says he's not afraid to die - and he's got the tattoo to prove it.

Inside the yellow and orange flaming tattoo on his right arm are instructions to the funeral home where he has a prepaid cremation: "Barlow Bonsall cook @ 1700-1800 for 2 to 3 hours."

"It's a recipe," the 67-year-old widower from Hurricane said. "It's a recipe for cremation."


Barlow Bonsall Funeral Home and Crematorium manager Linda Wilson said she thought Parsons was joking several weeks ago when he said he was going to have his final wishes tattooed on his arm.

"I never thought he would actually do it," she said Tuesday.

She wasn't the only one.

Parsons said the tattoo artist who gave him his first and only tattoo said his request was among the craziest he'd ever received in 22 years.

"I told him, 'Well, take a look because I'm one of a kind.'"

Parsons, who survived a brush with cancer in 1999 and still deals with injuries from his Army service, said not everyone understands his attitudes about life and death.

"I'm not afraid of death. I'm afraid of life," he said. "I'm afraid of living and not being able to take care of myself."

I met a guy once who had a large barcode tattooed on his neck.

Strangest one I've seen was some goofball with an eye on the back of his head.

I know a guy that has nasty curse words tatooed inside his mouth, behind his lips. And if that's not strange enough, he also has a bumble bee on the end of his....well, you know.

However, I declined the invitation to confirm the legitimacy of the story. Just hearing about what he went through to get it was proof enough for me.

I just don't get the tattoo thing. I have never seen a person who I thought was more attractive w/ a tat.

The inner lip tattoos heal, so for the pain that you go through, it's only a temporary tattoo. Which I find not worth it.

I have a friend who has, what he calls a "heart-on" A small heart right on the end. I haven't seen it, but he has shown female friends of mine to prove it's legitimacy. Said it was the worst pain he's ever experienced, which I'm not at all surprised by.

I remember my first tattoo...
I had no idea or experience. I was lucky to find a good tattoo studio.

The artist was heavily tattooed, but a picture really attracted me. It was a woman with a big tattoo on his... you know... just there... all around... you know what I'm talking.

I saw the inner lip tattoos, not at all impressive, just thick block letters poorly scribed. I don't get it, but I suppose I don't have to. As for the bumble bee, according to story it also has a swirly buzz line leading up to it, or down to it as the case may be. He also said it was excruciatingly painful, most agony he's ever endured. Didn't complete the project in one session, went back for more.

It takes about 5 minutes to adjust, or acclimate, to the pain of the tattoo needle, then it's tolerable. Can't say it was the most fun I ever had, but I plan to have a few more things done around the tats I already have...eventually.

Someone posted a pix on here before of Gregg with a tattoo of his poodle on his chest. That was kind of strange to me. Gregg doesn't look like a guy who would wear tattoos of a poodle.
