    Nope, its a great system. Really cuts down on the ugly tattoos. I forgot to mention you can only go to certain tattoo parlors that are registered with the state for firefighter tattoos. It'll be such a sweet day when the vollys can get tat's anymore.

    Are you telling me you really need help figuring this whole thing out?

    Oh I remember this! It's not a new idea I remember this from news reals from the 1940's but it was hard to understand because the narration was in GERMAN!

    It's my own opinion but that's the stupidest thing I have ever heard, it borders on the line of mental retardation.

    Let's go to the Pm's bud this thread doesn't need any more derailment. Let's see YOU put your money where your mouth is and see if you wanna keep this up out of the publics eye, where your trolling can't pollute anything else. Balls in your court

    Hey Brother don't bite, its what he likes. This is that poor old fellow that has nothing to do but try to make folks mad. So instead of getting upset with him, we should instead feel sorry for him.

    You kidding me?

    You want a tatto, get it. Who gives a **** what someone has to say. I'm shocked that this is even a topic for discussion.

    there are tattoo parlors in the kitchen?









    No but really, as some one with a full sleeve and a half sleeve, I am all for covering up tattoos. Its your personal expression but so is the music I listen to but I'd never go out in public representing my department with it blaring.


    Cover it up, you have 2/3's of the year to show off your ugly ying yangs and maltese crosses.

    First, I am a career guy.

    That said, If these volunteers are trained, dedicated and act in a proffesional manner then I could care less about them getting firefighter ink. Volunteers in many part of the country are just as agressive, dependable and sometimes better trained than most career guys. That said, there are a lot of ****** bags posing as firefighters. If these guys are tha latter; It doesn't suprise me but is in bad taste.
