Sister #2 keeps talking about how she’s going to get another tattoo when her friend Burgerboy comes up for a visit. And, I think it was PeeWee who left a comment about how I should get a 666 tattoo. Ever since then I’ve had the overwhelming desire to get some more ink. It is an absolutely ridiculous desire.
I already have five (ack!) tattoos (daisy, gecko, burning star, superman s, and I Will Dare). Does any one person really need six? I’m not sure at what number you cross the line from person with a tattoo to tattooed-freakshow?
Lots of people I know are surprised when they learn that I have any tattoos, much less five of them. Whenever anyone asks me why I have tattoos I usually say, “I was 22 in 1994.” For most people that’s explanation enough.
I even know where I want to get the tattoo and when I think about it, that spot on my body tingles with want. And frankly, the only thing keeping me from the tattoo parlor is that I have no idea what to get permanently inscribed on my body. I mean what else is there? And really, at six do they stop being unique and start being boring?
