A pattern I drew that would make a good tattoo for me should I ever
desire the painful process or win the lottery!
Sunday Scribblings prompt this week is "Tattoo"
I enjoy the artistic aspect of tattoos, the meaty stories behind them, but I have no desire to get one. Piercings on the other hand would be more my thing. If I was young today stretched ears with big purple jewels would be my indulgence. Mother would have squawked her disapproval at such a suggestion!
No one in this house has a tattoo.
My cousin’s daughter has one on the back of her leg that looks more like a bruise than the spiritual sign it was meant to be. I’m sure there is much unspoken regret centered on certain tattoos. Sadly some markings are so terrible with ink fading away far too fast. Like an outdated hair-do they get stale and ugly, needing a frequent touch ups!
My friend Earth Goddess has a third eye between her shoulder blades. It’s my favorite. She’s a suppressed artist; with the only tattoo that’s ever tweaked an interest in me having one! I enjoy the rich stories that accompany tattoos for now that's good enough for me.
Should I ever get one it would have my grief wings for all who've passed out of my life, a paisley,my favorite pattern, my daughters initial or name, my son-in-laws name or initial on a music note, scrabble pieces, the word imagine for my favorite song, a few hearts for my favorite shape, my blog name, something to represent peace and a colorful pattern like the one at the start of this post.It may look similar to the image below! If the truth be told tattoo's are just not for me,even though god knows I have enough skin for a mural!!!
