The Ronald Reagan is on it's way to dry-dock for some much needed refreshing. My son, Jonathon is on that ship. He will be stationed in Washington State until the Ronald Reagan is ready.

tattoo gone wrong

Most people can't handle the thought of needles at all but there are those who enjoy getting tattoos. However, tattoos in very sensitive areas aren't what most would find enjoyable. A man in Iran decided to get "borow be salaamat M" tattooed on his penis. The phrase means "good luck on your journeys" and the "M" is the first initial of his girlfriend's last name. Nothing wrong with that if it's what he wants but he has now discovered that there is a permanent erection. Hand held needles were used so there was no way to regulate how deep they went; thus, his predicament. Ouch!! bad tattoo idea
