Gifts with an edge: Star Wars tattoos


As the holiday season approaches, we thought you might appreciate some gift suggestions with a twist, appropriate for those on your list who aren't satisfied with the same old, same old.

It's not as if I normally sanction tattoos for the under 18-set. But garsh-darn, when I saw the kinds of Star Wars-related tats folks are getting these days, I couldn't help but think, "My kids would LOVE these for the holidays." And all their friends, too.

So if you have friends who love body adornment (and who doesn't these days?), or if you consider yourself a parent who thinks out of the box, take a look at these beauties here. Definitely a gift with an edge. Subtle enough to slip unnoticed by school administration, these tattooed finger light sabers will give your kids all the reason they need to ignore you, your in-laws AND the egg-nog while they battle to the death in the other room. And since tattoos are, by definition, permanent, this is indeed one of those rare gifts that will keep on giving...until they're old enough to pay for their removal themselves.
