Question of the Week #148

If, by having a 2 inch by 2 inch tattoo, you could save five lives and prevent a terrorist attack, would you do so? If you were allowed to select the location and design, where would you have it and what would the design be?

Wait… It’ll save five lives and prevent a terrorist attack? That is one powerful tattoo. I want to know the story behind that. How does my decision to get a tattoo win a battle in the war on terror?

Well, whatever the story behind this magical tattoo, my answer is yes. I don’t see the big deal about getting a tattoo that’ll save lives. I honestly don’t know what I’d get, though. It’d probably go on my arm somewhere. Maybe Superman’s S-shield. I don’t know… It’d have to be good. I hear they’re extremely permanent.

What about you? Would you get a magical tattoo that could save the world?

  1. Not if part of saving lives… included forcing us to have 666 tattooed to get food (or whatever) and denounce God – then no because eternal salvation is more important than our temporary life on Earth. And I hope that I (and no one else) would ever have to make that horrific choice, especially if it were a loved one vs. a stranger dying. But, any other scenario, fine. I’m thinking there are people out there that donate an organ (like a kidney) and bone marrow, to save stranger’s lives, what’s a 2X2 tattoo? You could even make it a Bible verse or something like God’s child. Somehow make it cool and it doesn’t have to show. On a woman, it could go right where her bra attaches on her middle back?
