Your Say

Time and gravity
Drag us down
Yet, still we seek
To play
The dolt and clown.

Most of the stuff you see out there over the past 10 years or more are cheaply done but expensively bought. Very light cuts for if it went as deep as it should the snowflakes would have been horrified and refused. Cheap chinese inks that fade instantly. Much of it is the *brush* technique that barely penetrates the top layer of epidermus.

My only one is 42 years this month, has 5 colors done deep, and hurt like 4 motherfuckers, and still looks as bright as the day it was born. Well, maybe a little faded.

Truthfully, I wish I never got it. Was procured at Ft Campbell, KY May 1977. I don't hate it. I just outgrew my dumbness and don't care for the constant reminder.

I have never seriously considered a tattoo or any kind of piercing and it's not because I'm a prud or pain sensitive. I just think that for certain classes of people and in professional circles their presence indicates that you possess a very poor ability to make good choices.

I had a cousin once who was a greaser type. I loved his mom and dad but he was a real loose cannon and mean as a snake. Last time I saw him was probably in the early 60's and he had several on his arms and chest that had begun to fade and he looked like a damned clown. Tatts always remind me of that asshole.
