tattoo appointment tomm

>> Wednesday, May 18, 2011

For years, I have been working on my tattoos. The number of hours I have spent under the needle, and the money I spent to spend those hours under the needle, can no longer be counted. I got my first tattoo in 2002, a tiny thing on my right arm. I crossed the border from being a person with tattoos, to a tattooed person, when I completed my enormous chest piece in 2008 over 9 horrible hours. And now, in 2011, I cross another taboo barrier by tattooing my hand tommorow. It's has something I have wanted for many years, and I finally have grown tired of waiting. I welcome, indeed yearn for, the negative comments I will receive from the prudes and tools that reside here.

The tattoo will be the flag of the famous pirate, Edward Teach, also known as Blackbeard. Long has is lore and legend intrigued me, and I feel the flag as a metaphor for my curent view of the world. The work will be done by Tom Butts of course, the amazing Drunken Absurdity ally, at Anchor Steam tattoo in Newport.
