"Tattoos Get You Sex" and Other Observations from the Western Frontier

So you have to be blind not to notice the popularity of tattoos in the West, and it must say something about this moment in time, this world in which we’re living. Basically it seems everyone in Colorado/Wyoming (the two places I’ve been traveling in lately) has them. Old ladies, babies, librarians, and the traditional auto repair dude–everybody has ’em. Big ones. Bad ones. Big bad ones. Your average Walmart looks like a carny convention from the Fifties. At a Walmart in Salida, Colorado (nice town) I recently saw a Jeep with a bumper sticker that read “Tattoos get you sex.”
Well I had been mystified why they were so popular. Now I’m not.
