Ink Or Swim

Today's LA Times Travel section has an article of some interest to tattooed persons.

It's a five-day cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Cozumel, Mexico, on April 16 - 20 aboard the Royal Caribbean's Liberty of the  Seas for $970 per person.

It's being billed as the First-ever North American tattoo cruise!  On board, passengers will have access to Tattoo Alley where name artistes will be waiting to give you some fresh ink (not included in the cruise cost.)  The gaiety is not limited to getting inked; it includes contests for Best Original and Best Nautical, a burlesque show,  a free portrait and a beach picnic in Cozumel. 


But the emphasis put on the "first ever tattoo cruise" suddenly struck me as possibly sinister ... What if some guy, a demolition expert, hates tattoos because his beloved Granny Harley-Hog got one and then died of infection?  And his was the first cruise ticket sold?
