Coffeehouse observation No. 300 – Some things are better left unknown

A woman on the coffeehouse patio has a “tramp stamp” that reads “Houdini.” I don’t even want to know the backstory on that!

I have no intentions of messing with the barista who just served me a Red Eye. She has a tattoo of Dirty Harry on one bicep and a skull in tophat on the other. She may be the toughest 90-lb. woman I have seen in quite a while.

Coffeehouse observation No. 150

A pretty young woman came into the coffeehouse to study a bit ago. She’s wearing a short skirt that exposes her lovely long legs and a strapless top that exposes her lovely shoulders and a butterfly tattoo between her shoulder blades. Aww, thank goodness it’s summer again.

The guy at the next table at the coffeehouse has an interesting collection of tattoos, including the word “HOPE” across the knuckles of his left hand and “LOVE” across the knuckles of his right hand. I suppose that’s a bit of tough love and hope.

A woman just sat down at the table next to me. Tattoos on her shoulder and both her cheeks are pierced. Is that something new? She is the second woman in about a week and a half who has come into the coffeehouse with studs in her cheeks. Oh, and the one today is wearing a yellow strapless top that she keeps having to, um, adjust.

I caught a glimpse of Hawaiian-print undergarment when a checkout clerk raised her arms to help the customer in front of me in the checkout line. The clerk also had a palm tree/tropical scene tattooed on the inside of her forearm. Now I’m sitting next to a woman in the coffeehouse with a very colorful lily pad/tropical tattoo on her bicep. Ah, the tropics …

Coffeehouse observation No. 68

Overheard in Exotic Java today that it is located in what used to be a much larger tattoo parlor. The parlor is still there, next door. Also, I noticed that the mural – the one behind the counter with the image of a girl in Daisy Dukes and hot pink hair on a swing hanging from a tree – also has an image of a wizard. The word “tattoos” is woven several times in his long, white beard.

Also, the “Red Eye” is a nice pick-me-up.
