permanent ink, and such.

September 29, 2014


I was 18 and naive when I got my first tattoo. It’s an outline of a dove on my foot. Yes, I put a bird on it. FOREVER.

Fast forward six years and i’ve added seven more tattoos, much to my fathers chagrin. Some are easily seen, others are hidden depending on the amount of clothing i’m wearing. I favor some to others, but I don’t dislike any of them. For me, each is a reminder of a certain time in my life. Not all of them have deep meaning, or really any meaning at all. My most recent tattoo is a cluster of hexagons I got simply because i’ve always loved the pattern the shape makes when repeated.

I’m curious – do you like tattoos? Will you ever get one?  Do you have tattoos? Is there meaning to each?

    I don’t have one. I’ve always said no, but I’m not sure. If anything ever sticks out to me… I have thought about getting a Josh Ritter lyric but that might be messy! Undecided. Yours look cool! Interesting question.
