Lintilla pointed this article out to me, and it makes me smile. I love when someone comes up with a proper name for something when the heretofore name for that thing hasn’t quite sufficed.
Till now, I’ve only known of one descriptive name for those tattoos that many (and I do mean many) women get in their very lower back, stretching across the entire lower back: tramp stamp. I’ve never liked the word because it implies all kinds of things that have nothing to do with the actual tattoo. But, those particular tattoos are a particular thing, and needed a name, so that’s what I’ve been stuck with.
But the Australians have a perfect name for them.
That has to be the most perfect phrase I’ve ever seen.
