'Miss C's arm tatoos, Billy Bragg lyric included (Neil Fitzgerald)
tattootattoo

What and where is your tattoo?
It's the start of a half sleeve on my right arm. So far it pictures Jenna Jameson and Dita von Teese (just missing a third girl) with Mucha style flowers and vines around them. It also says "to have an to have not" at the very top.

What does your tattoo mean to you?
Each of the girls I look up to in some way. Jenna was the 1st woman to take the sex industry and be the boss and take charge instead of being used like to many girls before her. She has also been through a lot in her life and is still going strong. For me she represents a strong independent woman. Dita to me is one aspect of what a woman should be. She's smart, classy and does her own thing. The Mucha aspect just comes from a love of his (and that movement) of art. "To have and to have not" is the title of a Billy Bragg song. I've always loved the song and what it means. In the context of my tattoo it reminds me to keep my feet on the ground. [Miss C talks about her tattoos]

I always thought Billy Bragg was a guy. Is this a joke?

"Jenna was the 1st woman to take the sex industry and be the boss and take charge instead of being used like to many girls before her."

I have a hunch that she's not the first and that she didn't take charge from the start of her porn career.

"click the links for more info on the the tattoo artist and model"

I didn't see any info on the model other than her tattoos. Is she known for anything other than her tattoos?

A porn star is an example of a "strong, independent woman"?

Geez, feminism really is completely dead!

I hope my daughter grows up to be just like Jenna Jameson! Porn empowers!

Who the fuck is Miss C and should I care if she's a moron?

I'm gonna get a big back piece of Peter North. He represents the strong, male, business-savvy archetype that I aspire to.

For what it's worth, I've read that for the past few years, she's done only girl-on-girl.

In addition to being a Billy Brag song, "To Have and Have Not" is also one of Hemingway's worst novels, about a fisherman who smuggles contraband (including illegal Chinese immigrants!) between Cuba and Florida. Adds dimension to the porn star tattoo.

Human subway car. Tasteful. You stay classy, girl!

Another stupid tattoo. The ink I see on people these days keeps on getting worse and worse.
