One of the things I like about bass guitars is collecting and playing them. However, after a few years some of the allure weakens to the point where I want to sell or trade them for something else. Tastes in design, tone, and what have you, have a way of changing over time. What I like today may not necessarily be what I enjoy tomorrow. Few of us are the same person we were 20 years ago. Change is inevitable. Unlike bass guitars, tattoos are a much more permanent fixture that's not easily disposed of, especially if you have a lot of them.
