"I tell them to put it wher- ever they're says the San Francisco artist. And the women do from a paisley teardrop on a television talk show hostess's buttock to tlirec seagulls on Ihe wrist'of an investment researcher. By Barnes "I hate to think of that poor moid and butler you promised me before we were married. Out of work all these years." The growing number of wo- men who are getting tattooed are not tlie Tugboat Annie type. They run the gamut from law- yer and banker to secretary and housewife. Tuttle, 41, says his clientele began changing four or five years ago and now three-quar- ters of his customers are wo- men. The designs they ask for could be almost terflies, rainbows, tiny red lips, doves, daisies, stars, halfmoons ligi lining flashes or Snoopy. For what he vaguely says are the same fees a psychiatrist charges, Tuttle has cnserolled hips, bedragonned thighs, and provided one woman with a permanent pair of panties, lace and all. Tuttle became interested In tattoos at 14, when he came to San Fi-.Vicisco to gel one. It was a he.vt inscribed the only thing that saved him from a licking when he got home. ADOKNKD ALL OVER Bit by bit, he has had himself tattooed from neck to instep.....a sunrise on his chest; stars show- ering over his shoulders, a Sa- moan girl around his waisl, Egyptian symbols on his knees and two eagles in a sunburst on his back. He himself developed such tallooing skill that plastic sur- geons have called on him to re- place lines in facial features, lighten pigment over birth- marks and make eyebrows. But mostly'he has decorated clients more than so tattoos of his own de- sign. He has tattooed a flower on the back of folksinger Joan Baez and a bracelet on the wrist of late rock singer Janice Joplin. Tattooing is banned in SOUSE places for fear dirty needles might spread Infection. But Tuttle works in a spacious room with sterilized equipment and a city health inspection certifi- cate on the wall. One of his customers says the baroque ring tattooed on her finger is her "statement of eccentricity." 'People see this blonde girl." said Amy Hill, 23. "Then they see the tattoo and that gives them pause. "It's an indicator of the odd kick in the gallop."

Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our 20-year-old dropped out of college in the middle of the year. She says she wants to travel and mature, so that when she returns to college she will be able to appreci- ate what is being taught. 1 say The girl has an excellent mind but she has goofed off, stayed tip all night, slept all day, missed classes, and failed in almost every subject. Her best friend refuses to room with her next year. Our daughter owes the girl money and has also pat the touch on her grandmo- ther, her brother and lieaven Jcnows who else. My husband and I are not wealthy. We work long hours. Our home is not paid for and have other children to ed- ucate. So long as our daugh- ter stayed in college we felt an obligation to support her. Now that, she has fouled up in school, I don't believe we owe her travel money while she "matures." My husband feels we should go along with her or we might lose her for good. I believe this is subtle blackmail. He reads your column daily and thinks you're a smart woman. Please sock it to him. The Buck Stops Here DEAR BUCK: Blackmail is the name of this game and I hope you don't fall for it. If the girl bad done well in school and you wanted to re- ward her with six months of travel, I'd say OK. But she goofed off and is hoping lor an escape hatch so she can avoid responsibility and do her own thing at your expense. Tell her that no funds are avail- able for an open-end vacation. Let her know that if she agrees to return to school in the fall and puts in a productive year you might consider giving her a summer trip as a bonus. DEAR ANN: How can par- ents expect" their children to he considerate and polite when they Ihemcelves dem- onstrate such crudeness and poor manner? I refer lo two mothers of grade school youngsters who take turns driving in a car pool. I am awakened every, morning at by this per- sistent beep-beeping from one or a series ol blasts from the oilier. And don't tell me I should be up and singing by that time. 1 work from mid- night to a.m. Both these women begin to lean on' the horn as soon as they iurn the corner. If it's snowing or raining they turn into the driveway which sep- arates our house from the neighbor's and I gel this shock treatment right under my bedroom window. When children are being p ed up they should be in DEAR ANN LANDERS: N7either you nor V.K. d i d much to advance the cause for women's rights. Did you know that if a woman Li raped on a dark street in New York she can- not press charges unless she has a witness who will testify in court that she was forcibly overcome? The courts assume tr'at a raped woman tantaliz- ed or seduced the male un- less she can prove other- wise. In some instances, if a hus- band comes liome and finds a man in bed with his wife he can shoot them both. This is considered a "passion shoot- ing." If a woman catches her husband in bed with another woman and shoots them she Is charged with murder. front, waiting lor the car to pull up. Don't tell me lo speak (o the offenders. I hate fishwife arguments and refuse to lower myself to that sort of thing. Just print this let- ter, please, and let them see themselves. You-Kuow-Who DEAR Y.K.W-: Here it is for You-Know-Who and T hope it produces You Know- What. Honking is a natural (but thoughtless) act, and if 1 worked from midnight till 4 I wouldn't care to be beep- ed out of bed at either. hope this letter does some good. Confidential lo A Memory Test: I remember it. It goes like this: "When your mind makes a commitment your body can't fulfill You're over the hill, brother, Over the hill." P.S. I'm two years older than you. Mine is 1918. So don't come crying to Hi Women's Libbers for help, Ann, when your husband beats you or refuses to give you money. Or when your women friends desert you be- cause you were too pro-male to help their cause. And T.V. Of N.Y. DEAR J.S. And T.V.: I am neither pro- nor anti-Wo- men's Lib. I am strongly in favor of women getting sal- aries and promotions com- mensurate with their ability. T am against discrimination based on color, creed or sex. I am, however, opposed to loud-mouthed dames who try to push their way into all- male clubs where they are not welcome. Hen do not be- long every place and neith- er do women.
