#a189 :: Tattoo needle

August 21, 2008

ENLARGEThere’s a certain serenity to getting tattooed. You sit (or lie) back on the chair or table and agree to let someone cause you tremendous pain for several hours and scar you for life.

What gets you through the pain is the promise of how marvelous the scar will be. I’ve been waiting months to have Justin turn this into this.

He put on Hans Zimmer‘s haunting score to The Dark Knight, approved and I lay back and let him jab this into my arm thousands of times per minute for two hours. Because I knew that when he was done, visit this site I would be transformed.

And I was, exactly as I dreamed of being.

That is the wonder of a good tattoo.
