Where were you when the Orange Line shut down? One Jamaica Plain resident was out getting a tattoo to commemorate the reasons for the shutdown. Photo by Katherine Brainard.

I don't do tattoos (except for one mistake in Smithfield, RI in the 70s) but I think these are terrific. I content myself with a wall full of old MTA signs that I bought/still buy off eBay. Spent my childhood, teens and beyond riding the Green Line. Fell asleep nightly to the sound of the screeching wheels at Riverside. I miss that.
A lot of tattoos will be outdated after a few years. This will be relevant in perpetuity it seems.

If you tattoo your body, do so with relative artistic merit vs "it really meant something to me at the (drunken/buzzed/acid trip) moment in time.
This is reminiscent of my navy buddies getting a devil with a mop in it's hands tatted on their forearms of all places...
But to each their own
To each his own.
I'm one of the links Adam listed as someone who has a T related tattoo. I got it years ago after having none.
I'm 45, and almost like your opinion... if I was going to get something, it was going to mean something to me, and not be some fad (i.e. barbed wire tat). So I waited and waited.. and at 42 I got the T tattoo.. followed by a few others in the following months. It just happened.. and they all tell a story.. places I have been.
But yeah I waited.. a long time. And am glad, otherwise I'd be lasering off a barbed wire armband that I wanted soooooooooooooooo much in the 90s. (like everyone else is doing now.. lasering them off)
