My Whole Expanse I Cannot See…

I formulate infinity stored deep inside of me…

Tattoo #12

Category: Life,Tattoos

Lately, it may or may not be obvious, I’ve been pretty down. It’s probably the longest I’ve ever been this dark, and though the rational part of me still exists, I just can’t make it stop. The rational me isn’t loud enough, the poor fellow’s nailed to a cross in a field of poppies, being taunted by a creepy girl. He’s been locked inside a Heart Shaped Box.

Thinking along these lines, I went today for my twelfth tattoo.

Not every tattoo is an etching of hope, but they all mark something significant for me. So, no matter how bad I feel right now, whether or not it stops, it’s very real, and noted.

    um.yeah. It is obvious you’re down. Not even down…like insanely down.

    me too kid (I am late 30’s…can I still respectfully call you kid)?

    Lost. I get that. Some of it by choice, some of it is what life threw at you. Doesn’t change what is though.

    It also doesn’t change how ill-equipped we are to deal with it.

    Could we say sanely down? Oh, wait, I wore a tiara around town. Nevermind.

    Even though you’re down, I like the tat. We may as well use our bodies as a canvas.

    I’ve got four myself.

    and, I’ve been there.

    I’m not a huge Nirvana fan like you, but that is easily one of my favourites of theirs. Good choice.

    I love that tattoo. So beautifully simple.
