So about six months ago I got a large tatt on my shoulder to commemorate what is most important in my life and to celebrate my celtic roots. It was and is a very liberating feeling to make a statement about what you've left behind and what is most important to you now and in the future.
I used to think that people with tatts were mostly poor and not so intelligent. Maybe even dangerous. There's the old judgmental high horse that the wits are good at riding. The truth is I know more than a few MD's with tatts, as well as people across the socio-economic spectrum. Most are really kind and thoughtful good friends.
Cheers to you WasOnce, remember tattoos are like Lays potato chips. No one can get just one. I've already got my next planned.
