(Inspired by a topic suggestion from Nitramxxx@aol.com)

Well, I know this is a lot more than ten...but what the heck...I liked them.

25. The tattoo artist ran out of ink, Jane. Geez, you are way more insecure than my ex-girlfriend, Jan. (Ponytayl@cox.net)

24. It's a pop act's name, and I get royalties to leave it on. (ldolphin34@hotmail.com)

23. Honey, that's not a woman's name: it's a flower. The tattoo guy didn't know how to DRAW a rose. (maxcel200@aol.com)

22. Priscilla-Anita-Theresa, your name is too long, so I abbreviated it by calling you "PAT." (tphyll@aol.com)

21. It's all part of my undercover work for the FBI. You see, I infiltrate criminal underworld organizations and they all have tattoos, right? So I figured I should have one. But, I didn't want to use YOUR name and possibly put YOU in jeopardy. So you see, honey, there's a perfectly logical explanation for having another woman's name tattooed on my chest.
