I love love love tattoos, because it's so endlessly fascinating how people want you to immediately perceive them -- because no matter what people say, the symbolism behind a visible tattoo is probably the first communication of any sort you're going to get from a person. So. This morning, on the subway, I saw a guy, close-cropped hair, all black expensive-looking clothing, good shoes -- and around his left bicep was a ring of friggin' dollar signs. Dollar signs. It's like he was saying "No, really, I may look like I'm all about money, but really, you know, I'm all about money. Did I mention I'm all about money?" If he ever wants to prove that he's not some shallow asshole, this dude's got an uphill battle.
