Tramp Stamp for your Favorite Uncle

Usually I'd be the first objecting the label "tramp stamp", but sometimes you just can't fight the evidence...


I have only a vague clue as to what this Hebrew tattoo was meant to say, probably some variation of "Beloved Forever". In actuality, it says "Uncle World". What a great Hebrew inscription for your butt!

Seriously, though. In Hebrew it doesn't even convey the dirty meaning. It just means an uncle named World, or a world who is an uncle. Weird stuff.

What happened here is the use of the word Dod (nowadays known only as "uncle", while in old Hebrew it also meant "beloved") combined with the misuse of the word Olam (which means "world", and sometimes, in appropriate context, can also mean "forever").
