i’ve always admired those who can commit to permanent works of art on their skin. truth be told, i’ve been carrying around a little script of paper in my wallet for 10+ years with art that i hoped someday i would be brave enough to wear. maybe i have commitment issues or there’s some other aspect in my subconscious holding me back.
deep down, there’s always that sneaking suspicion that flares up saying: ‘you can’t erase me!’ you can always walk away from things in your past and with enough thoughtfulness and reflection, move on and no one would ever know! tattoos simply aren’t like that! it’s ironic that i live across the street from a tattoo shop too isn’t it haha?
well, when i saw this article in the new yorker, i was absolutely captivated by this woman: maud wagner. in fact, it’s a family affair! her husband was an artist who taught her how to tattoo and eventually they had a daughter and she continued in the trade as well.
so…what are you thoughts on tattoos? do you have any or would you like to get one in the future?
