Would you?

Well? Would you?

Saw this yesterday on the Facebook page of Bajantube Рa super popular Barbadian entertainment/video upload site and it definitely gave me pause!

I stopped, scrolled back up and my jaw dropped. It’s like a social studies project on Barbados tatted on her back – from the flag to the map to the national flower (Pride of Barbados, just so ya know).

I thought two things:

1) That HAS to be a Bajan living overseas – West Indians living outside of the region have a particular depth of emotion and sentimentality for their island homes that you don’t neccesarily have when you’re living here.

2) Owwwwww! I have two teeny little tats and those stung – I can’t imagine¬†her pain threshold!

Comment is divided. Some are lauding it as the ultimate show of patriotism while others say it’s just too much.

Your thoughts, islandistas?
