You Do Know Tattoos Are Forever, Right?

Strange but true: A tattoo artist offered a

free inking of Hillary’s face

to any takers at a recent tattoo convention in Baltimore. It will certainly hold up longer than a Hillary for President travel mug.

Personally, I’m not letting someone named Buffalo Bill go anywhere near my skin.
