her kids names on that particular one makes it worse. It's considered a tramp stamp because of the location, the middle of the lower back right above the butt. I've heard it called a couple other things but I can't remember them. The whole joke is that a tattoo there gives a guy something to look at or read during certain activities...so someone that does that activity a lot, sometimes labelled a "tramp", gets a tattoo there to keep the guy's attention and focus. It's technically a very mean, vulgar name but it's just so catchy and I'm a military wife that's been around Marines so much that tact isn't really part of my vocabulary...plus I just don't care. To me and the people I talk to, it's just an easy way to tell someone where a tattoo is. It's as easy as saying "right shoulder" instead of "the middle of the lower back" you know?
