Apparently that 18” x 18” tattoo of the U2 War graphic that I have emblazoned proudly across my middle torso (think 2Pac’s “Thug Life,” but with a randy Irish twist) will not qualify, but I’m still thinking of showing up and seeing if the Siamese cat tat I have on my left arse cheek will make the cut…
