: A coworker is celebrating midlife by getting tattoos. She first got a college team logo on her shoulder. Today I noticed she got some hippie flowers on the top of her foot. It looks cute. Another woman, to keep her company, got a rose on her a**.

: They were discussing their tattooedness when a new employee walked by. Naturally they asked her, "You got any tattoos?"
