  • Mood:

tattooie!

Furthering my curiosity, (and having worked through the moody mood), I've a new question. *fanfare*

Do you have a tattoo? Do you have more than one? What is it? Why did you get it? What does it mean to you? Do you still like it? Are you getting more? You don't have to share the location if you want to keep the mystery. ;>

What is the weirdest thing someone has said when they've seen it?

If you do not have a tattoo - would you get one? And then all those other questions. Come on, fess up!

I worked in a tattoo parlor for a little while. (Yes, things you didn't want to know about me. Love Makes You Stupid.) But I never got a tat. Which makes me The Freak. I only did some design work as the shop rule was that no one could ink another person if they were not willing to ink themselves. Fair enough, right?

I never got inked for a number of reasons. 1) I'm incredibly indecisive. I'd print out dozens of copies of a design and stick it /everywhere/ around me to see if I would get tired of it. I did. 2) I also couldn't decide where to put it. It has to fit the body part, imho, and I want to SEE it. 3) Flat out truth is that while each of the artists were good, none of them were good enough. They each had one exceptional skill. In order to get the best tat I'd have to have gotten one to help compose the design, another to draw it, another to ink it, and another to color it. I'm nowhere near diplomat enough to pull /that/ off. ;)

But I would like to get a tattoo. Someday. Of something. Somewhere.

    I wonder if more people work weekends than not? Given the gig economy & support staff #s? Service industry? Hmm. And all y'all who argued with me…

    Saturday coffee feels way more friendly! Well, except I'm still at work.
