No, I am not making this up, however, I wish I was. As far as we know, this is not a real trend.  But the mere fact it exists is enough to make you hope the Mayans were right about the world ending this year.

According to a report by the "New Times Broward - Palm Beach", the next trend in tattoos may be . . . sphincter tattoos. Their reporters checked out the 17th annual South Florida Tattoo Expo this past weekend, and filmed a woman there getting one.  As for having needles repeatedly jabbed into her backdoor area, she said it felt, quote, "really, really good".

And a psychic at the convention even predicted that yes, this is the next big trend. Yeah, psychics are always dead on the money.

So if you want to get in early, I guess you can ask around to see if local tattoo parlors will knock one of these out for you.  Or, on second thought, please don't.
