Weird Science

This was inspired by an article schmi linked concerning differences between men and women on the subject of tattoos. It got me thinking, so I've decided to conduct my own incredibly unscientific study.

The basic premise:
If you are a man with ink or an interest in ink, fill out the first poll, entitled The Illustrated Man. Leave comments as you see fit, and invite your friends to visit and take the poll themselves.

If you are a woman with ink or an interest in ink, fill out the second poll, entitled (appropriately enough) The Illustrated Woman. Leave comments as you see fit, and invite your friends to visit and take the poll themselves.
