Whether preplanned or not, for women who want the stamp without the tramp label, perhaps there’s a different spot on the body that’s less sexually suggestive.

Or maybe not. As Brank puts it: “Unfortunately, girls can’t do anything without guys making it vulgar.”

This frustrated me, I exclaimed, the tattoo came long before the term “tramp stamp” (not sure if that is true or not, certain I didn’t start hearing the term till fairly recently). Funny enough, (to me anyway) one of them has a rose that looks like it is a rub on, on her ankle and the o”
