People get tattoos for all kinds of reasons. Self-expression. Honoring a loved one. Showing the world your steadfast devotion to Tweety Bird. Or, as of 2020, because you’re on a cruise ship and there’s nothing better to do.
Virgin Voyages — Sir Richard Branson’s foray into the cruising industry primed to set sail in 2020 — announced this week that it’s introducing the first-ever tattoo parlor at sea aboard the forthcoming Scarlet Lady, cleverly called Squid Ink. So when an Instagram selfie just isn’t quite enough to tell the world you were on a Virgin cruise, now every time you look at your ribcage, you can remember those seven magical days you spent floating around Nassau.
