So I got myself a tattoo. I went to an old college buddy of mine and I got inked.
First off, the experience is not as painful as it’s made out to be. I mean it isn’t pleasant but the pain is really, really tolerable.
So why the tattoo? Well this is a transition year for me. I got out of the corporate world and I’m doing what I love to do – writing. So to celebrate my break from suits and ties, I decided to get a tattoo, something that would make it harder for me to be hired again in a corporate setting.
I’ve joked before that I wanted a unicorn tattoo, something to contrast my appearance right now (I look like a wooly mammoth or a bouncer at a heavy metal concert) but then again, I have nothing in common with unicorns.
So I decided to go with one of my all time favorite characters, Snoopy. Like him, I’m pretty much an independent soul and I pretty much make my own way in life. He’s also a tad bit lovesick (Fifi the poodle) and has a great imagination. I love how everything he writes starts with it was a dark and stormy night.
Anyway, that’s the snapshot of my life right now. I’ll be working on another story. See ya guys in a bit.
