I'm a boomer and I've never understood the allure of tattoos. Back in the 1960s and early 1970s, tattoos were generally worn by the shorter-haired folks we called greasers, sworn enemies of the freaks and pseudo freaks.
I was recently chatting with filmmaker Edward Burns who was excitedly talking about his new drama series, Public Morals, which premieres on August 25 on TNT.

This is not the greatest song in the world, no, but it's one heck of a tribute. Tenacious D singer Jack Black and Boy George
