I’ve known for along time that there exists animosity between certain cities, and this is revealed by which area code some guy “RE-PRE-SENTS!” going so far as to tattoo one’s area code on a visible location on one’s body.

While I think that is inherently stupid, I can understand, in some situations, some native member of New Orleans want to make sure no one mistakes them as dudes from Baton Rouge, and REPRESENTING the 5-0-4 kind of makes sense.

But, I almost laughed out loud when I saw a giant 2 5 6 tattooed on the forearm of a sweet, harmless-looking, polite young man today. I mean, really? Representing North Alabama? Do people come up here from the 2-0-5 looking for trouble often enough to permanently brand oneself?

    hahaha, is this a southern thing or a gang thing? or a sports thing? Trying to figure out if I need to brand myself with rural south carolina. lol Although that would be an affront to true southerners since I didn’t grow up here. I be frontin.

    Haha. I suspect it did probably originate as a gang thing, but it’s now migrated to the mainstream. Can’t wait until all over body tattoos become passé. At least green Mohawks weren’t permanent.
