Rubber Stamps Helpful In Male Mid-Life Crisis

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – During a mid-life crisis, some guys want tough tattoos to go along with their bitchin’ new motorcycles.

However, one San Diego woman is hoping to minimize mid-life mistakes by encouraging middle-aged crazies to rubber stamp instead, preferably using one of her “kick-ass” designs.

Nicole Yost is the owner of the Asta Arts Rubber Stamps, and says many of her products are modeled after popular tattoos from the 1950s, such as nautical stars, pin-up girls or the ever- popular skull and crossbones.

Yost tells potential customers to rubber stamp the temporary tat and color it in with markers.

She says it’s usually a Do-It-Yourself project but doesn’t recommend coloring in the huge, twisting dragon alone, because, she says, “a lot of things could go wrong,” like the ink smearing all over the place.

Yost has had so much success with her rubber stamp tattoos that she’s now in the process of designing more stamps for her middle-aged customers, but insists, “I won’t have a stamp with somebody decapitated.”
